"Daniel did an excellent job representing me in a complex house closing at a great rate. I would highly recommend Dan."
"I’ve used Dan McCabe for many years for real estate and business law. In every instance Dan exhibited knowledge, confidence and insight to every varied situation. His calm demeanor was a valuable asset to the typical sensitive complications of any law issue. He and his office were timely and thorough in communicating and meeting deadlines. "
Dan McCabe, Great Lawyer
"I was referred to Dan McCabe by a close friend who has been a client of Dan's for over 20 years, and now I know why. Dan is friendly, patient and personable, not traits I've come to expect in my experience with lawyers. Dan and his whole staff have been very helpful guiding me through the sale of my current house and purchase of my new home. They are always quick to respond to my inquiries and clarify anything I have concerns about. They communicate with the other attorneys on my behalf and follow up with me in timely manner. I highly recommend Dan McCabe, and McCabe, Martin, Coleman & Ventosa in Poughkeepsie, NY to anyone looking for a law firm to represent them. "
Professional, kind, efficient, responsive, easy to work with
"Dan helped me draft some paperwork for a separation and divorce. He made the process less stressful and made the work sessions very productive. His rates were very fair. He is calm and kind as well...and someone who will advocate for you. For me, I just felt a high level of trust in working with him. He has a high standard of integrity which I find is hard to come by these days. I highly recommend him and his firm!"
