I can’t say enough about Dan’s honesty, integrity, professionalism, knowledge of the law, and genuine care and concern for his clients. He is passionate about what he does. Just as importantly, he is a well known and well respected attorney in Placer County. Dan has a great reputation with other attorneys and with Placer County Judges, Public Defenders, and the District Attorney’s office. I am convinced that the respect that the Placer County legal community has for Dan had a lot to do with our success in the courtroom.
Currently, we have a 22 year old young man livng in our home while he tries to get his life together. We are long time friends with his family. David stuggled with drugs and the law when he was a troubled teenager. His problems followed him as he got older because his teenage years left him with a record of drug felonies. These felonies have prevented him from getting work and left him depressed which, in turn, has made success difficult for him. We knew that if David could take back a lot of the things that happened from his past, including the felonies, he would.
We didn’t think we had options until we met Dan Koukol. Our journey to help David began with hours of internet research on felonies and numerous phone calls to attorneys in the area. We were limited on funds available to help him so we knew we needed to find someone who would do the job without trying to run up lots of attorney fees. We also knew we only had one shot at this and picking the wrong attorney could be disasterous. Our research ended when we talked to Dan. We immediately knew he was our guy and boy were we right!
Dan went to court and was able to have one of David’s felonies completely dismissed. A few months later, he then went back to court with us on two other felonies and presented case law to the judge to have those two felonies reduced from felonies to misdemeanors. In our eyes, it was nothing short of a miracle!
I would be happy to talk to anyone reading this about Dan’s ability and give Dan permission to give out my phone number to anyone looking for a reference. If you feel you are in a hopeless situation, I urge you to contact Dan. The heavy weight that you feel will be taken off your shoulders from the minute you speak to him. Thank you Dan for all you have done for David and his family!
