Prompt & Attentive
Daya returned our calls quickly, and patiently listened to all the details of our case, unlike two other lawyers that we spoke with previously. Admittedly, we were kinda "freakin' out" because legal battles are expensive and unpleasant. Luckily, the company on the other side of our $10,000 problem was reasonable and willing to negotiate a satisfactory compromise, but if they hadn't, we felt like we were in competent and caring hands with Daya Naef.
