The Watkins Firm has been my counsel for years. 8 years ago I talked to Dan about a case pending against me and how my current attorney was handling it. I was about ready to sign a check for $35,000 to settle a claim. After one meeting with Dan I was able to completely avoid liability and not pay any money to settle the case. I have been working with Dan ever since. I would strongly recommend the Watkins Firm.- Jon Hoffman , Contracting Concrete Consultants Inc.
