"My experience with Daniel was pretty extraordinary"
My experience with Daniel was pretty extraordinary. I generally feel very confident about my abilities and experience in my given profession, but I found myself unable to move forward with my job. I was terminated without sufficient cause and owed money from past sales. I wasn't sure what to do or even how to start. Fortunately we were referred to Daniel Chaleff and his firm. I was put at ease after the first conversation with him.
"He listened when no one else would..."
My experience with Kevin Rehwald was great. Always took my calls, or promptly returned messages. Willing to explain to me what was going on with my case, and hear ideas I brought to the table at all times. I always felt I could trust him and that he was being 100% "up front" with me and had my best interest as a priority. He showed me that indeed, there IS "light at the end of the tunnel"...
"knew exactly how to handle every situation"
I worked directly with Dan Chaleff, but all attorneys at this firm where involved and knowledgeable about my case. Dan was detailed and methodical he knew exactly how to handle every situation. I was proud to have this firm representing me and I would definitely recommend them! I was very pleased with the settlement they won on my behalf and wouldn't change a thing!
"Direct to the point, polished and knowledgable Attorney"
Kevin Rehwald is trustworthy individual who will tell you where you stand on your case. He is good on following up and following through. He helps you ease with your stress and gives assurance that he will do his best to fight for your rights. He was able to settle my case in a short period.
I have been intending for some time to write to you and say 'Thank you.' My family greatly appreciates the highly professional way that you handled our recent legal matter regarding my former employer. When it became clear that I had a legitimate complaint, I turned to Bet Tzedek Legal Services in order that they could evaluate my legal situation and make a referral. We believe that we were very fortunate to have been referred to you. I vividly recall that you carefully gathered the facts and expertly organized the material in preparation for your initial contact with my former employer. Upon receiving their response, you formed a plan with me to move ahead, always keeping the door open for the defendant to step forward and settle our grievances fairly and expediently. When their window of opportunity had closed, you prepared for trial in a thorough and thoughtful way that further instilled our confidence in you. At trial, you were sharp but respectful, thoroughly prepared and knowledgeable of the facts and on point with your strong legal arguments. You inexorably moved the case forward toward a fair and just conclusion. The commissioner agreed and awarded our side everything we were asking for. I believe that it was your expertise, preparation and professional manner that carried the day and resoundingly won our case. Allow me to express my heartfelt gratitude to you and to state that I would welcome the opportunity to refer others to you who are seeking an outstanding lawyer. Please feel free to use my name as a reference at any time. An honest and strong referral is the least that I can do to show my genuine appreciation to you for your outstanding professionalism and the successful legal outcome that you achieved for us. Thank you Daniel.
