- Esther M. (Bend, OR)


I was referred to Dan Carlton to assist with my bodily injuries, resulting from a bad auto accident. He advised & guided through this extremely stressful experience. I couldn't manage my recovery, the hospital & doctor bills. Dan was very knowledgeable & did a great job for me. He & his Assistant, Renee, were professional, compassionate & trustworthy. I would highly recommend Dan Carlton.

- Linda V. (Rancho Santa Margarita, CA)


I've known Dan for many years but never had the occasion to call on him for legal assistance until I was hit head on early this year totaling my car and sustaining injuries. I worked with Dan and his assistant, Renee, for about 8 months as I healed from my injuries and proceeded with my claim. Dan and Renee were in constant touch with me and when I hit some "down periods" during the process kept me positive and motivated. I may be a little biased since Dan and I are both HB Oilers 1968 (!), but he is an excellent attorney and invaluably assuring and confident. Thanks, Dan and Renee. You guided me through a very difficult time.

- Sandee L. (Laguna Woods, CA)


WOW! Dan Carlton is the friendliest, most caring attorney that I have ever met. Aside from that, he has so much experience, in so many areas of law. I can't recommend him highly enough.

Recently, my husband and I were selling a property, and we felt as if we were being improperly represented by our agent. I reached out to Dan, to see what his opinion was on the matter. Being that he is not only a respected Real Estate Attorney, but that he also acts as a mediator, (as well as a Judge), I knew immediately that I had contacted the right person to represent our interests. Not only did he facilitate the closing of escrow, but he was able to reduce the listing agent's commission by 60%!!

He was able to get us the outcome that we deserved, while holding the listing agent accountable for her misrepresentation. We were very pleased with the professionalism, experience and expertise that he provided, in such a caring and kind manner. Thanks Dan!!

- Vikki G (Huntington Beach, CA)


Dan and Renee were a real pleasure to work with. They were on top of making sure I got the most from my PI case. Dan was very thoughtful and attentive to my needs and made sure I got the best quality care after my accident. Highly recommended. Thanks guys!

- Angela S. (Huntington Beach, CA)


I just recently settled an accident case and from day one Dan looked out for me. Took control of fighting with insurance companies and getting done what had to be done. Dan is a great friend and attorney. HIGHLY recommend him.

- Bob B. (Hawthorne, CA)


Mr. Carlton is the best! He not only is a great attorney, very professional and incredibly knowledgeable, but he's also a wonderful person! He won for me two cases that were not so straightforward; and during the entire time he worked with me, I never felt just a "case," but he treated me as a human being and he showed that he genuinely cared about me as a person. Beyond that, he is also a very pleasant person to talk to, with an amazing sense of humor! And what to say about Renee? Any good word about her as a person and as a professional would certainly be an understatement! She is the best! I know that I will repeat myself, but Dan and Renee are fabulous! Thanks!

- Chiara L. (Berkeley, CA)


I was the driver in a motorcycle accident this December 2015 and was fortunate to have a friend recommend Dan. Dan is a consummate professional and hands-down, the best attorney I could have worked with and asked for. Dan took the time to listen to my story and provided me with excellent counsel and advice. His work ethic is solid and his compassionate guidance showed me he understands how challenging it can be for someone involved in an accident to navigate through the entire process. Renee, his assistant, highly competent and was very attentive to my questions and needs. I can and do highly recommend Dan as an outstanding attorney and great guy. He will definitely be on my Christmas card list for life. Thank you Dan, you are awesome!

- Tim T. (Chino Hills, CA)


I found Dan on Yelp and he certainly lived up to the stellar reviews. Communication from his office is great, and he made dealing with insurance companies a breeze.

- Crystal A. (Irvine, CA)


I was referred to Dan by some good friends and he came as advertised. He handled my case professionally from the beginning and had some issues to deal with that would have been tough to overcome if we had gone to court. That being said, he delivered! He negotiated a much better settlement than was originally offered. In PI cases, it's about the settlement and reward and in my case I don't think we could have done much better. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone who wants a good personal injury attorney.

- Bob H. (Palm Desert, CA)


Truly one of a kind - Attorney Dan Carlton is a rare, wonderful & the most caring attorney ever! He is by far the best PI attorney & knowing that he will take very good care of you is very comforting... and his assistant Renee is a gem! Seriously - no need to look or go elsewhere. Totally recommend!

- Estelle T. (Corona, CA)


It is my honor and privilege to recommend Dan Carlton. I had a bad rear-end car accident and initially retained another attorney. Even though the other party admitted that they were at fault and it seemed like a slam dunk, my initial attorney dropped the ball. My case was dead in the water until Dan agreed to take it. Dan worked diligently on my behalf and obtained a settlement that was TWICE AS LARGE as the one negotiated by the first attorney. I believe he could have obtained an even larger one had the first attorney not messed my case up. Dan is honest, experienced and professional. Both he and his assistant Renee were pleasant to deal with. Please don't make the same mistake I did. Hire Dan first and put a great attorney to work for you.

- Shirley K. (Newport Beach, CA)


Dan Carlton is the best!!! He made our lawsuit a good experience. He is great to deal with and we love Rene. He also brought the insurance company to their knees and got us the full amount of the insurance policy cap. Thank you so much - Randy and Kelly.

- Randy C. (Mission Viejo, CA)


I hired Dan to help me when I was in a bad car accident last year. He is a very personable guy and I trusted him 100%. I felt like he really fought for me, got me what I thought I deserved, and just think he was a very awesome attorney. I would highly recommend Dan if you want a great attorney who will fight for you, will always do what he can for you. He is a great guy more than anything and that is why I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great attorney.

- Steve B. (Huntington Beach, CA)


Mr. Carlton is straightforward, competent and considerate - highly recommended.

- Mim W. (Eugene, OR)


Dan was amazing, he and Renee were easy to communicate with and kept everything moving. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and will definitely recommend his office to everyone.

- Michael A. (Huntington Beach, CA)


I would like to give Dan Carlton a 5 star rating. He is truly one of the best lawyers out there!!!! Talk to him before anyone else he will send you in the right direction and make the process an easy one. He is sincerely a genuine good hearted person that really cares. He also has an amazing lady working with him named Renee she is just a sweetheart and made the experience just that much better!

- Samantha G. (Huntington Beach, CA)


Dan Carlton is the only attorney I have ever met who is not only professional but above all has integrity and honesty. He helped me through a difficult time and really cared about me. I was hit by a truck 12 years ago and had a different attorney. The difference was like night and day. I wish I knew Dan 12 years ago! I appreciated everything Dan did for me with this case and would highly recommend him to anyone, especially my family and friends. I hope I won't need his services again, but if I do, he will be the first number I call.
