  • Steve Barone

    Oct 19 2017 I have worked with Dan on a very difficult case for about seven years. He has never given up or advised me in any way that I have felt was counter to achieving a fair outcome. He has always advised me professionally and the advice has always been in my best interest - even when I sometimes wanted to hear something different. I can easily recommend him as a quality, legal advisor and advocate.

  • Rebecca Murphy

    Aug 11 2017 This was somewhat my first real experience in regards to a legal matter that I was forced to deal with. It was a long and difficult situation. I truly believe the Critzer Law Firm handled everything for me in such a profession and timely manner. I was kept informed and updated on the status on a regular basis. I knew I had made the right choice and so thankful for the connection with this firm. Even though I was stressed about the situation at times, everything went as smoothly as possible. I wasn't just another client.....I felt like I received special treatment. I am forever grateful for everything! I would highly recommend this group. Thank you for getting me through what I'd consider a very stressful time! Such a great group of people.
