Client Comments

"I have known Daniel Share for nearly 25 years. During those years I have found him to carry out his professional duties and responsibilities in an exemplary fashion. He is very responsive to his client's needs. He makes himself very knowledgeable as to his client's views and preferences in any legal matter, and meshes those views, preferences, and needs with the legal matter at hand. He demonstrates a level of knowledge of real estate law that is second to none, and no matter how complicated the legal matter, he is able to make it understandable to a layperson. He is very patient and an excellent listener to both sides of the legal process. He is very responsive, both in the timeliness and value of the response. He makes himself readily available to his clients, for meetings, telephone conferences, etc. He returns all calls in a timely manner, no matter how urgent or pressing. He is, in essence, a wonderful attorney who makes the client feel 110-percent confident of his abilities and the outcome of the legal matter."

"Having utilized the legal counsel and services of Daniel Share continuously for more than five years, I can say without reservation that Mr. Share is among the very finest real estate attorneys in Michigan. Together we embarked on a Planned Development Agreement of some 600 acres of mixed-use commercial development in Metropolitan Detroit. The process was new to both the landowner and the city municipality. Mr. Share represented our landowner interests (as a land owner) extremely well, but his demeanor and professionalism working with the "other side" and gaining their confidence in our credibility was even more impressive. The ease with which Mr. Share handled very complex, often opposing viewpoints and interests, demonstrated his experience and acumen for the "art of the deal." At the completion of the 17-month approval process, the municipality asked if they could use Mr. Share to represent them on future projects. I think this says it all. Mr. Share is a consummate gentleman with whom I am proud to have represent my interests and whom I call a"trusted friend.""

"Dan is the smartest, most level-headed attorney I have ever met. He is widely respected by those with whom we do business, and is a pleasure work with. His ability to get to the point and settle the essence of matters is both extremely effective and efficient, but also refreshing among the legal profession."

-Steve Bentley

"Dan Share has been our Corporate Counsel for over 25 years. We are a Real Estate Development and management firm and, as such, require a variety of contract types to be negotiated with a wide array of entities. The art of making this happen goes beyond protecting us as his client; it is just as important to create an environment in which the opponent doesn't feel like the enemy so a deal can be made leaving both parties satisfied. The fact that he's brilliant and considered one of the finest Real Estate attorneys in Michigan is simply an added bonus for me."
