Client Reviews

Dan Stanford and Ray Ryan represented us in a complex legal malpractice case against multiple law firms (including two from Minneapolis) that lasted several years. Dan Stanford was dedicated, aggressive and thorough. We prevailed and he literally saved our lives ‘savings.’ – Mark and Bridget A. – Solana Beach, CA
When we had to sue our lawyer for legal malpractice, we had a tough time finding a lawyer who would sue another attorney. We were fortunate to be referred to Dan Stanford of Stanford and Associates, who handled a difficult and complex case with a wonderful combination of finesse and aggressive tactics. We have never forgotten his fine work for us. – John and Barbara H. – Alaska
Dan Stanford was the pioneer in the field of suing lawyers and law firms. He was perhaps the first lawyer in California to limit his practice to representing clients against lawyers. And, after 38 years of practice, he continues to be the premier legal malpractice trial lawyer. He handled my case with perfection. – Pat S. – La Jolla, CA
