My case was very frustrating. Mr. Cook listened to my fears and addressed each one. He explained the costs associated with my choices and helped me weigh the pros and cons. I was happy with the outcome. Hopefully I won't need a family lawyer again, but if I do, it will be Daniel Cook.

Dan Cook is an amazing divorce attorney. He was able to take over my case after I had spent a year with another attorney, who was unable to get my divorce finalized. He quickly reviewed the information he was forwarded from my prior attorney. Within less than six months my divorce was final. Dan was well prepared for the negotiation process, so it was not necessary for me to go to court. I could not have had a better outcome, as far as getting my share from the marriage. My only regret is that I didn't call Dan Cook when I began the divorce process.

Not only was Dan professional but also treated myself and my son like part of the family. He had a tall task to get me custody of my son at the age of 2, but after numerous court hearings and meetings I got custody of my son! In a state such as WA that is tough for any single father. I could call him anytime day or night, home or at work and he would be there to help me no matter what. If it was not for Mr. Cook and his staff I don't know where I would be at today in a custody battle. I owe EVERYTHING to this man and couldn't be any happier with his services!!!

I feel like he saved my sons life! Dan was understanding of my situation. He was flexible with payments and considerate. He had an amazing memory about both my children's lives. He was my attorney for several long years. I don't feel like at any point he dragged things out to increase the cost of my legal expenses. He's like a lucky penny doesn't matter how you find it somehow it helped you. When I was frustrated he explained things and in the end got me custody of my son.

Very helpful, patient, and informative. Always reachable, and constantly kept me updated regarding my case proceedings. They are fair, honest, and quick. Would recommend to anyone in need of legal assistance.

Dan represented me through five years of divorce trial, appeal and hearings. He and his support staff believed in and supported my case from day one. Dan's expert legal advice resulted in winning my case and was life changing for me and for my family. His passion for his work and compassion for his clients is a winning combination.

Very professional, honest and doesn't set false expectations. He does well in court and presents a strong case with logic and fact. Has a great understanding of family law. I would refer all of my family and friends to Dan and if I need another attorney he is by far my first choice and I highly recommend you speak with him.

Dan Cook was and is currently still amazing to work with. I am in a different state and I feel like my communication with Dan and Sally have always been amazing. I hear back in a timely manner and I love that Dan is completely honest and upfront with you. Everything Dan has said he would do he has done and Sally does a great job in listening to the problems and giving me answers. They are both just great people to work with and have made this difficult and annoying time in my life so much easier!

Of all the decisions I have made in my life, choosing Mr. Dan Cook as my attorney, is one of the best. He is a bulldog, going that extra mile willingly for his clients. I am impressed with the staff he surrounds himself with as well, very knowledgeable and professional. He worked very hard to get me the very best outcome and is still following up to continue to ensure that I am informed. I highly recommend his service. I have been treated with the utmost respect and always feel like I am a priority even though I moved to TN after retaining his service, I am always informed of all that is happening with my case. I have only the highest regard for Mr. Cook and his staff!

Mr. Cook had conversations with opposing counsel as well as correspondence without keeping me informed.
ZERO negotiations with opposing client/counsel!
The settlement details was hashed out in 2 hours in March without prior negotiations and then 9 weeks after the settlement meeting the rest was phone text hashed out the afternoon before signed ex parte on May, and NOT what I agreed to! Dan Cook told me not to come to court.
He lost the opposing client's tax information for over 4 months (past the Nov deadline), this ended up delaying my ability to refi my home for over 9 months!
He failed to research any information I provided, was completely unprepared for settlement conference.
There was no complete discovery process, I was unable to prepare documents to prove a loan was fraud b y former spouse, I ended up stuck with that $7K too!
He did not inform the client what to expect and the options prior to court.
He sent letters demanding payment with threats of quitting representation without any courtesy call, even when I was making payments as quickly as I could. No compassion or consideration!
He allowed the Judge to use fear threats to force me to agree to pay what was a fraudulently obtained loan.
It became necessary to pay (more of course) for appts to get him to answer questions, and actually follow through on documents.
Finally when Dan Cook was caught telling opposing counsel that the CPA lost the taxes, I called him on it and he quit, without a word!! He only mailed a copy of the court withdrawal paper on Christmas eve.
