Someone you can count on
I have worked with Dan on several different projects and could not have been happier. He does not miss a thing and instils confidence that things are being handled the right way which of course they are.

Helped with an Insurance Issue
Dan is extremely well-versed in insurance issues and helped me with a claim in which my insurance company was refusing to pay for a 4th and final surgery to separate 2 fingers on my right hand. They had been grafted together following a life-threatening infection which almost cost me the loss of my hand. It seemed absurd that they would refuse, but they did, calling it "elective surgery". Dan knew just how to respond, and after his expert intervention they relented and paid the surgery costs for this very needed procedure to eventually restore mobility in my hand.

Excellent insurance lawyer
I have known Dan for years. He has always given me the best insurance advice. He has an uncanny ability to analyze an insurance policy and find coverage in a professional and accurate way. In several instances, he has reviewed insurance policies for me, and found a way to have the case defended by an insurance company. As a result, cases have settled (or been won), without having to pay out of pocket. I would recommend Dan to anyone faced with a tough legal issue.

My Personal Endorsement
Mr. Andrist was extremely efficient in representing me in a case involving a Real Estate dispute. His ability to negotiate an out of court settlement with the other side was in my mind, exactly what was in my best interest and saved my from what could have been a costly court case. His knowledge of E&O Insurance law, and the rights of the individual as well as the responsibility of insurance company, and the understanding of the policy written by the insurance company was abundant. He is my first choice when it comes to any law matter, as I know his integrity is what guides him to either take on my case, or refer it to another attorney if he feels it is outside of his expertise. Bottom-line, is he wants what's best for his clients, and is continually looking after their best interest.

Simply the best
Dan Andrist has given me counsel on insurance issues for more than two decades. He's easy to work with, a good communicator, and highly personable. He's the man you want in your corner fighting for you. I recommend him without reservation.

Have been using Dan's expertise for nearly 15 years
It is sometimes hard to think rationally when one believes they are being shafted by another person or entity. Dan's expertise and personableness helps me get to a rational place as we proceed. He takes the time to teach me thus helping me understand my options; why or why not any specific approach might work best. This, in effect, gives me piece of mind when a course of action is chosen. He convinced me early on that he is very knowledgable about his trade and i can therefore trust when he presents what he believes my best options are, even if it is not exactly what I wanted to hear. Once a course of action is established he models integrity and professionalism; he is tenacious though patient (something i did not realize was a quality in a law battle). It is a weird world within the law field - one that baffles me fully - I don't know what people do if they don't have a good lawyer.

Very Helpful advisor!
I've known Dan for many years as a man of exceptional integrity. He has broad experience and is exceptionally intelligent and astute. He possesses both wisdom and wit. Dan helped us navigate our insurance options to optimize the outcome of our investment in premiums. I recommend Dan without reservation to anyone in need of legal counsel, especially as it pertains to insurance matters.

Excellent Attorney, One you can count on
Dan came to our family's aid by advising us regarding a child custody issue. We have found that Dan's knowledge of the law is vast and that his counsel is solid. While Dan is specific with his advice, he is not overpowering. Rather, he is reassuring and helps us to feel confident about our decisions. Simply stated, Dan is a good man, a great attorney, and will represent you well.
