“Dan has prepared me with all the alternatives. The firm is very well run … I can see why it’s growing so fast. Dan is a very good attorney; I’m so glad I have him. Dan was personable, and it made the situation easier to work with.”


“The whole corporation is amazing. Dan was very personal [and]  made me feel confident. Dan is so smart and knowledgeable; he really helped me pick up the pieces of my life and helped me put things back together. …”


“It’s been tough dealing with what I’m going through, but it’s been nice to know that I have someone who cares and is on my side. He is very responsive and comforting.”


“Dan is a very sharp, intelligent man. He knows his job very well. [Dan’s paralegal] in the office is completely awesome; she always gets right back to me, and she always has an answer for me. It’s like she has the book of answers open when she talks to me. …”


“I was extremely and pleasantly surprised by Dan and the firm. Due to the size, I was afraid of becoming just a number. I was surprised at the amount of attention that was devoted to me and my case. I will likely retain Cordell again in the near future and would absolutely love to work with Dan again.”


“Dan has always gotten back to me very quickly! He has truly guided me down the path I wanted to go on. He’s been right on it! I’m so glad I was referred to Dan and Cordell & Cordell! …”


“Dan is the ultimate asset to Cordell & Cordell! He has been here for me every step of the way! He’ll get back to me after hours, long after I know he’s gone home for the day. He has gone through all of the ups and downs with me and has really cared about what’s happening to me. I can’t say enough good things about Dan!”


“I had two other attorneys prior to Cordell & Cordell, and I wish I’d come to Dan from the beginning. He came into this with a lot of last minute things going on and really took control. Dan is extremely assertive but mindful to keep it very professional. I am completely confident in Dan. I may not always agree or understand everything right from the jump, but Dan is great at helping me see the full picture.   He is very responsive, which I find comforting. I can’t say enough good things about him! He’s awesome!”


“Daniel was excellent! He is intelligent, professional and precise!”
