Client Comments

"Dane Gaschen knows labor law inside and out."

"Mr. Gaschen has worked with our organization extensively for the past several years. I have found Mr. Gaschen to be very knowledgeable yet very unassuming and excellent to work with."

"Mr. Gaschen is an exemplary attorney. He is very knowledgeable about school law, and he responds to the needs of his clients promptly. I would definitely recommend Mr. Gaschen to other school districts."

"Dane A. Gaschen is top notch. Although we are a small client of his firm, Dane treats us as if we are as important as any of the firm's clients. I feel that when Dane is negotiating for us, or offering advice, he is not our lawyer but rather a part of our team. Our concerns are his concerns, and he represents Wellsville as if he lives in our district. In this day and age, it's hard to get the personal service Dane A. Gaschen gives my district."

-Richard Bereschik

"Dane A. Gaschen is my lifeline in the ever-changing area of school law. I call him when I doubt my own judgment and I'm happy to say he has always given me and my board sound advice. If Dane doesn't have the answer he will acquire it in a timely fashion. He is highly skilled in the area of negotiations. His calm manner, knowledge, and attention to detail make him a valued partner in the negotiations process. He cannot and will not be bullied by the other team. He is concerned about what is best for the district and doesn't adhere to the "Slash and Burn Policy" of many firms. Dane is with us today and plans to be here in the future. He tries to foster a working relationship with all the parties involved in the process. Quite frankly, I could not do my job effectively without the assistance of Brickler & Eckler and their support team."
