Fair Prices and Very Professional
Andre Dayani is one of the best attorneys I have ever witnessed and I received highly responsive support. He offered an appointment on extremely short notice four days before my court date and within the course of one hour was able to help me make a plan to address my legal issues with a positive resolution. If you want a highly professional and emphathetic attorney who can leverage his experience having worked within many systems and contexts of the law, Andre is a great option to represent you. In addition to his excellent service, I received the best quote from him and his rates for legal services was one of the fairest prices I could find in Seattle.

Great service, our case was a success!
Andre helped our firm on an SIJS Custody Case. This law firm was easy to work with, had good communication and our case was a success. Thank you Andre for your help on this very important and arduous process for our client. I recommend their office and look forward to future cases with this firm.

Thank you so much!
My experience with Dayani Law Firm was excellent. Andre accomplished something I thought was impossible, through sheer persistence and determination to help me. Having him advocating on my behalf was an incredible relief, and his calm, gentle nature was so comforting. I also appreciated so much that even when it seemed we weren’t making headway when waiting for certain entities to respond, he let me know he was still there, not to lose hope. He also clearly explained all processes and his plan of action at every step in my case. He was able to obtain clearance from another state (for thirty-year-old non-moving traffic violations that their DMV wouldn’t release, but the court couldn’t find...) releasing my Washington license. He also represented me in court, for two citations I’d received here in Washington, obtaining a dismissal of one item, and appealed to the court with circumstances that changed the fine on the item I was indeed responsible for, but with more to the story. The court agreed, and lowered the fine I was required to pay. Thank you again, Andre. I’m so fortunate to have had you to solve this complicated puzzle.

Great lawyer
Amazing lawyer and a good man. I had some pretty serious charges and if it wasn't for his help, I'd most likely be in a very bad situation. My family and I are very thankful for everything he has done.

Thanks Andre
Andre was wonderful to work with for my mother’s case. He was courteous and caring. While being a stressful case, Andre made it as easy as possible for us. We didn’t have to worry about filing any paperwork or having to learn the legal process of the case for he took care of all of that for us. He genuinely cared for us and cheered us on. Thanks Andre for handling this case and all that you’ve done!

Andre sets the bar...
I was thrust into a situation needing representation and Andre came highly recommended. He worked diligently to get me the very best results, excellent communication to keep me informed of progress and status, and accommodated my busy schedule and remote location. Things can get emotional and having the right person to be your voice and shield means everything in getting a great outcome. Thank you for your fine work!

Trustworthy partner
My car was stolen in a parking lot and I decided to sue this parking lot. Many lawyers feel that I pay them will be higher than the compensation, and they told me it was not worth it. Andre accepted this case. I and Andre have been working on this case for a long time and finally got satisfactory compensation without having to sue them. Andre step by step telling me that we can get higher compensation. He is a reliable and responsible person, and if I or my friends have other cases, I will definitely come back to find Andre.

Responsive, quick and trustworthy!
I reached out to Andre to help me with setting up some LLC's, title transfers and overall legal guidance. He answered my questions quickly (less than 1 or 2 days) and was honest and clear about the things he knew and did not know. I got all the paperwork I needed on time and everything went very smooth!

Highly recommend!!!
Came to Andre through Nur law and they are amazing attorneys. Could not be happier with the outcome of my car crash case. They are attentive, vigilant, professional, down to earth and understanding! If you want attorneys who will sincerely care about your outcome and best interests they rise to the occasion. My accident was complicated and previously neglected by a different Seattle attorney to the point of having no outcome for over 3 years almost passing the statute of limitations. To make matters worse the driver that hit me wanted to pursue me for damages?! It was incredibly disheartening. I didn't expect a very good outcome at this point. Coming to them through another clients referral gave me a ton of hope that I could at least get everything dropped. They definitely surpassed my expectations by getting me a settlement for the damages I incurred and dismissed the other drivers accusations!!! :) I will definitely be recommending all my friends and family to come to this firm! Incredibly grateful to be able to put this behind me now thanks to them.

Excellent Attorney!
Andre Dayani is an excellent attorney. We have hired him several times in the past, and each time he works hard to get the best possible outcome. Andre knows the law and knows how to find and argue legal issues to his clients' advantage. Will certainly keep his name handy for future legal needs and to refer others to him.

Serving alcohol to a minor
Andre was referred to me by another attorney just in the nick of time. I was appointed a public defender for the tune of $600 for a very minor case. Andre, having worked as a public defender in the same court for three or four years was not only more affordable, he was well adept to that system and even knew the judge. Communication with Andre leading up to the pre trial date was clear and easy. All the charges were dropped and I felt very satisfied with my experience in hiring Andre. Would definitely work with him again and could not recommend his expertise more.

Top Notch
I had the pleasure and good fortune of working with Mr. Dayani while facing a challenging DUI arrest. Not only was he able to reduce my charges but persistently fought to decrease my fines as well. Despite the uncertainty and potentially devastating consequences which my actions could have cost me, Andre's representation gave me confidence and reassurance. He responded to my many questions in a timely manner and addressed all concerns with transparency and true attention to detail. Overall, a good-hearted, knowledgeable, and a highly professional individual!

Very good and reasonable law service
Andre Dayani worked for me on a few occasions. Every time I was very pleasantly impressed. He wrote an effective vendor contract for our human service organization. In addition, Andre developed preliminary responses to labor issues that ended up agreeable for all parties. He also developed contracts, sale contracts, and real estate extensions for me personally. Andre is a trustworthy and ethical professional. I can not recommend him enough.
