About three years ago I was referred to Dan Orenstein through an excellent nurse case manager in the Chicago area, and I agreed to give him a try on several files. It did not take me long to know that I found an attorney as passionate about his work as I was about mine. With the professional help & direction from Dan, we settled files and finalized claims saving my company thousands of dollars. Dan is an expert in his field. I have forged a lifelong business relationship with Dan due to his excellent work ethic and professionalism. His character and reputation is head and shoulders above the rest.

I have known and hired Dan since 2002, and its wonderful working with him! He presents his clients with all of the available options, keeping in mind the particular defense philosophy of the company. In terms of keeping in touch, all I have to do is leave Dan a message and I speak with him that same day. Anytime I can, I hire Dan Orenstein.

In my experience, Dan, is a great guy, easy to work with and is up to date on all things happening within his firm. Dan has handled assignments diligently and is always working to bring any issues to resolution. Dan seeks out side of the box solutions when the issue is not able to be resolved through normal channels or processes. Dan works within the legal bounds to uphold his clients demands and does not shy away from informing his clients when he sees their demands as not be plausible. Dan will discuss all possible outcomes and recommend the most appropriate resolution strategy for the given situation.
