Client recommendations  for Daniel R. Bacalis

  • From Betsymuery: Disclaimer

    Dan was very helpful to me in my revision of custody and child support case. He understood what I was trying to accomplish, he told me possible outcomes and he worked to get me what I was requesting from my ex-husband. He worked quickly and efficiently. Dan is very professional and I would recommend him to anyone who needs revisions to their parenting plan, or child support orders.

  • From kim0911: Disclaimer

    I used Daniel Bacalis earlier this year to help me get through a divorce with a very disagreeable spouse. Things were very tough and I met with 2 other attorneys prior to choosing Daniel. I chose him based on 2 very important things, his office staff was very knowledgeable and helpful, and Daniel was prompt with returning calls, emails and answering all the questions I had. I am glad I chose to have him represent my side of the case. I felt his rates were very reasonable compared to the other attorneys I spoke with. Daniel and his team really helped make a tough situation manageable and as pain free as possible.

  • From Alfredo: Disclaimer

    Mr Bacalis was recommenced to me by a friend. I pretty much needed someone to fight through this for me all the way to the end. I was very impressed. Not once was i ever left in dark wondering if case is even being worked or if there was any progress being made. Mr Bacalis was persistent throughout the process and kept me updated all the time. I am a very busy person and did not have time to be following up on anything but he fought this case as if it was his own problem. Huge pluses for Mr Bacalis would be the urge he has to get things "sitting around and waiting", and got the ball rolling on my case immediately.... which is pretty much unheard of nowadays. If i ever see myself in a legal battle again i would be a fool to go into any litigation without having Bacalis on my side. Consultation was very "to the point" and everything that he said would happen ..Did. Very accurate on time frames...pricing...and details on what it is going to take to complete job at hand upfront so there are no surprises. I would strongly recommend Mr Bacalis and his very helpful team to anyone and to even my family members. Very impressed.

  • From dogafree43: Disclaimer

    I highly recommend Dan Bacalis as a divorce attorney. My situation as the Respondent, involved the Plaintiff's attorney dragging her feet on many occasions. Dan was agressive in moving the proceedings along to come to a settlement and performed well in the mediation meeting. His fees were what I expected.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
