    I have known Dan since 1991, first working in the same firm and later as a colleague in Vancouver. I have always been impressed by how hard he fights for his clients and by his willingness to take the time to explain difficult legal issues to clients so that the client can make the final decision on which course to pursue. I have no hesitation in recommending Dan for all areas in which he practices.
