These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Daniel is one of the best kept secrets in the criminal defense world in St. Louis. He is an AV rated attorney who has a tremendous trial record. Prosecutors are always very hesitant to go to trial against Dan because of his superior results in the courtroom. Daniel is the managing partner of a criminal defense firm with 7 attorneys. Daniel has received national attention in several cases regarding his victories on high profile child pornography cases. I say that Dan is the best kept secret because he does seek out the fame and glory that many criminal defense attorneys in this area do, but his trial skills are one of the very best in the area. Just ask any prosecutor who has ever had to go against him.”

“Dan is a seasoned professional and one of the top criminal defense lawyers for state and federal cases in the St. Louis area. I have worked alongside him as co-counsel representing physicians, dentists and other providers in Medicare fraud and false claims matters brought by the federal government. I highly recommend Dan when health care professionals are facing felony level and high monetary exposure cases.”

“Dan is a seasoned professional criminal defense attorney, is highly respected by his peers, and routinely obtains outstanding results for his clients.”
