"Best of the Best: I hired Daniel a year and a half ago to help with an investment gone wrong. I felt him to be an attorney who is committed to justice and takes pride in all his endeavors. He has the integrity and dedication to follow through and make the process as painless as possible. Daniel guided me to a conclusion in a situation that was very difficult to do. I feel he is the best of the best of young and up and coming attorneys in the city." M.F.


"Daniel Bakondi is an attorney who is devoted to his clients. He is knowledgeable, expedient, and meticulous about details. He is honest and provides his clients with a realistic evaluation of their expectations. He doesn't waste your time. Daniel Bakondi is the attorney who will be in your corner all the way." N.T.

"Mr. Bakondi is a poised and brilliant young man who asked extensive questions to get at the crux of the situation. I was continuously amazed at the fine/pertinent points that Mr. Bakondi dug out of the years of files I had provided him. He quickly filed legal action I would call impressive in its fact-finding, background research, and arguments. In subsequent attorney communications and motions, I saw this astounding incisiveness over and over again. More than once I remarked to him how glad I was that he was not the other side's attorney! In forecasting the time, phases, and expenses of the case, Mr. Bakondi was also unerring. While the entire process took over a year, I never once had the feeling that he was not in complete control of the situation. In consultations, he always had all of the options and their consequences ready at hand, along with his recommendations. Not once did he make an inaccurate forecast or give bad advice. When the case concluded successfully, he tied up all the loose ends as meticulously as everything else he had done."

Attorney Bakondi successfully settled a representative complex litigation action in the Superior Court of California representing the public interest of the people of the state of California.  Mr. Bakondi received court approval of the settlement, which was finalized with the cooperation of  the office of the Attorney General.  In this private attorney general action brought by Mr. Bakondi, he successfully litigated and brought a corporation with yearly revenues exceeding $20 Billion into compliance with California health and safety codes.  Mr. Bakondi and his team received congratulations from the presiding superior court judge for being able to resolve the matter.  It is noteworthy that Mr. Bakondi's persistence, including in bringing the matter to the court of appeals, and willingness to take the lawsuit as far as necessary for justice facilitated a successful outcome.


Mr. Bakondi recently settled a securities arbitration case representing investors who were sold a series of bad investments.  Mr. Bakondi and his team recovered a $1-Million-dollar-plus settlement for his clients without his clients ever having to attend trial, allowing them to recover for a lost investment that represented a lifetime of hard work.
