“Dan is professional and through with cases. He is a great lawyer and I highly recommend him.”

– Client

“Highly professional and senior lawyer. Very approachable, responds to calls/emails right away. Experience and knowledge are strong points. Office location right across the street from the courts so helped me on very short notice. Before acquiring services, I checked rates with other lawyers and his were comparable/lower than others. No “hidden charges.” If you are looking for a good lawyer and do not know anyone (like me), you cannot go wrong.”

– Client

“Mr. Krisky helped me while I was in a dire situation. I had to have a competent and a professional lawyer. He was exactly what I needed. He was worth every penny that I paid him. I got a settlement that was fair and I would use Mr. Krisky again. That says a lot. All my previous experience with other lawyers could be categorized as “a waste of money”. I paid more to them and they were unable to produce the results that Mr. Krisky was able to in half the time and cost. Thank you Mr. Krisky.”

– Client

“Mr. Krisky is not only a very good lawyer, but also a gentleman and consummate professional. My first experience using legal counsel was a disaster. Not knowing Mr. Krisky personally, I hesitantly approached him with justifiable concern. I thank God for leading me to Mr. Krisky. Mister Krisky will be my lawyer of choice if I ever have to go back to Court.”
