I HIGHLY RECOMMEND 100%...! Words alone cannot express How thankful I am to have been referred to attorney David Haenel... by a friend. I felt like we were heard and because of that David was able to creatively and strategically pinpoint what needed to be done right away. He was able to assist my daughter with removing all of the points on her driving record. I strongly feel that God led us to this attorney at one of the most scariest times when needed some strong advice and leadership. David has earned my trust and loyalty and will forever be my go to attorney 😃...!I’m forever grateful,Michelleread more

I am truly grateful for this Team. They are amazing. From the first call you can just tell that they love what they do.... You can sense that they care and genuinely want to help. They took a scary situation and walked us through the entire process. Step by step. We were NEVER alone in this. They called us in times of panic no matter the time or day. They handle everything and while doing do keep you posted on the progress. Their Team/ Staff are top notch in their professionalism and multitude of services they offer. These people are here to help you I promise. I have heard some horror stories from people about their high priced attorneys and not getting the support or results they were hoping for or lead to believe. In our paticular situation we were lucky to work with David Haenel. He took the time to explain the process, the possibilities and his goals to achieve for us. I thought there is no way we can afford this man. After giving me all of the information I asked the dreaded question.....what is that going to cost?I was floored. Clearly they are not in it for the money. They do not try to take advantage of you at your unfortunate situation. They just want yo help.To David, thank you for all of your time. Support and miracles that you were able to do. We will be forever grateful.To everyone else, call. When in doubt, call. You won't regret it.read more

Choosing an attorney for something that is as serious as a car accident should never be taken lightly. The team at... The Law Place was responsive, compassionate, knowledgeable and above all, had our back from the day of the accident. Darren Finebloom took on our case and fought for what was fair to recoup for current and future compensation. Most attorneys look to close a case quickly and settle but Mr. Finebloom treated us like family. His persistence and knowledge made this process as simple as it can be. Jenny and I thank you for the hard work, dedication, and commitment.read more

Our attorney at The Law Place was Darren Finebloom who did a great job for us! However, the person that took the... “reins” on our case was Darren’s paralegal, Ms Terri Ruiz. Terri stayed on top of everything from start to finish by following up on every single detail over the past 7 months since the injury occurred, as well as filing the demand letter. She also negotiated the final settlement with the defendant’s insurance company lawyers.We are very pleased with the outcome of our case, and we are very grateful to the entire team at The Law Place, with special thanks to Darren and Terri! We will definitely recommend The Law Place to friends and family!read more

I hired Darren around October 2017 after a car accident that left me with horrible back pain. He and his team navigated... everything for me. Darren often sent me messages just to check in and let me know where the case was, and to see how I was doing. His staff kept me up to date on every appointment, and sent me reminders every step of the way. When it was finally over, my bills are paid with enough for continued treatments for years to come. I could not be happier with my decision to hire Darren and his hard working team!read more
