I should start by saying that I am a criminal defense attorney myself, and have known Dan Koukol both professionally and personally for over twenty years. I met Dan when he first started working as a defense attorney and I, like everyone else in the legal community, watched him, accumulate win after win after win in court.
When my daughter was arrested for driving under the influence (her second offense) I made arrangements to have Dan Koukol represent her.
Dan started by getting my daughter going to narcotics anonymous meetings, got her into counseling and treatment, and then he defended her criminal case.
By the time her court case was concluded the judge was agreeing with Dan that my daughter should just continue with the regiment that she was on (NA, and counseling) and that no additional jail time was necessary. This is an extremely good outcome, especially in light of the fact that my daughter was on probation at the time of this new offense.
The outcome in court could not have been better. And even more importantly, my daughter, for the first time in several years, seems to be on the right track. The combination of the court case, the counseling, and the NA meetings seems to have served as a real “wake-up call” for her.
There is a reason Dan is so successful in court, he has an ability to see the big picture, he genuinely wants to make things right, and he wants to get people back on a good path.
