After my auto-accident, I had serious doubts about my professional career. It's highly laborious, and taking a leave of absence due to an injury was a financially devastating experience.Dan really held my hand through getting myself back in order. He educated me on my many, many questions and gave me a great sense of autonomy with what course of action we wanted to take with my full sense of understanding every step of the way.I also give him major props for reaching out to me through the pandemic to let me know the status of our case, even when it was covid-paused for many months. I always felt like I was in great hands.My experience working with Dan was working with someone transparent, helpful, and consistent, and I'm really happy I met him when I did.
