This review is long overdue because I struggled to find the words to express our gratitude towards attorneys Evan Rothfarb and Dan Schlanger. There aren’t enough words to describe the decency of these two men. Their character can be challenging to find in the world today. They believed in me, my young son, and our case. Evan and Dan were extremely professional as they skillfully guided us, answered our questions, and made us feel like we were always a priority. They treated us with the utmost respect and never grew tired of explaining legal language in layman’s terms for us. We are forever grateful for what they achieved. The outcome obtained brought much needed closure and justice so that we could move on. They changed our lives and they will never be forgotten. I would recommend Evan and Dan to anyone who wants a combination of drive, competence, and compassion.
I am fortunate to have had Dan A. Schlanger represent me. Litigation is never fun. Dan’s profound command of the law and sound advice put my concerns at ease. There are many attorneys to choose from but not many that can compete with Dan’s outstanding attorney skills and utmost professionalism. Dan truly defines what an attorney should aspire to be. I highly recommend Dan without any reservation.

Over $18,000.00 had been seized from my bank account to satisfy a credit card debt that was not mine. I contacted Schlanger Law Group for legal advice and guidance. I found them to be knowledgeable, reliable, easy to communicate with and helpful in presenting the various options to me. I am happy this matter was resolved in my favor, and appreciate the entire team’s effort on my behalf.
I very highly recommend attorney Daniel Schlanger for anyone facing a stressful or complicated consumer law issue. The depth and breadth of his knowledge is unsurpassed; You cannot ask for a better advocate on your side if you have been harassed, victimized or simply targeted as a consumer. Daniel was very responsive to all of my concerns and he was very patient in explaining both strategy and the next steps in the legal process to me. I felt tremendously reassured knowing that I had Daniel on my side. I believe that it is rare to find an attorney with such a strong command of the nuances of the law as well as a commitment to personal customer service. Thank you, Daniel, for all of your help.
I reached out to Dan Schlanger after another lawyer I had under retainer stopped responding and failed to solve a lawsuit. Dan was incredibly compassionate and handled the entire claim quickly and with the utmost decency. I am forever grateful for finding him and could not recommend him enough.
