Layburn Hodgins - Daniel Quirk

I practice Property Law, Commercial & Business Law, Trust Law, Elder Law and Estate & Succession Planning.

Daniel, Your care and eye for detail was very much appreciated. You made what could have been a very difficult process quite bearable and for this I thank you.

I know I can rely on Daniel to guide me methodically, his approach is professional and when I was buying my first home he diligently explained every situation in detail to me and answered all of my questions. From the very start, he was upfront and realistic regarding the situation and expectations.
