"Dan Kazanas prepared and executed our Will and Medical Directive documents within the past year. Dominica and I find Dan to be extremely thorough, competent and trustworthy.

A good friend of mine was in a vulnerable business situation over 20 years ago when Dan stepped in to reconcile the legal matter. My friend said that if you ever need a highly skilled and trusted attorney, then Dan is your man. I would strongly recommend Dan for legal counsel on a wide range of business topics."

I consider Dan a good friend and although I hope I do not need to use his services again, he would be the first person I call if I needed a lawyer. Rest assured, you are in good hands."
