Slippery walkways due to water or snow, defective sidewalks, building code violations, loose wires, and poor construction are all examples of conditions that a property owner has the duty to control.

Daniel is proactive, good at explaining the options and ramifications of a situation and very responsive. He has handled a large amount of our foreclosure cases; came up with added language to protecting the Bank and, helped us resolve complicated HOA settlement cases. He has gone above and beyond is duties many times for our firm. I recommend him highly.
I have known Daniel Wagner for many years and ask him to take on specific legal actions for me for the last 2 years. Daniel Wagner is bright, diligent, understanding, compassionate and a lot of other words to express his professionalism. He is great and I will recommend him to anyone in need of legal assistance. He worked with me on Real Estate processes and also on a law suit to recover funds. Daniel Wagner will go the extra mile for a client.
Absolutely hands down an amazing TEAM! From the person who answers the phone to the Legal Secretaries and the Lawyers. We had such a difficult case that even the Judge mentioned he doesn’t do Writ of Possession that often. I was impressed with the extensive knowledge and professionalism that Mr. Wagner and Mrs. Melich have as well as their staff. Very efficient and responsiveness was nothing more than excellent. Most importantly, they won the case and we couldn’t be more humbled to have this resolved as this was my Grandparents home.

My finance’ and I hired Daniel to handle the closing of our first home purchase, and we were more than ecstatic with our choice to retain his services. First, the closing was timely and without any issue. Secondly, we received a credit towards our title insurance premium, which as first time home buyers, saved us much needed cash that we put towards our new furniture. Lastly, his support staff was prompt, helpful and professional. Our calls were always taken and our concerns addressed. We will be using Wagner & Associates for our future legal needs!
Your expertise and kindness in handling our purchase and sale was invaluable. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone who needs assistance.
Very impressed with Mr. Wagner every time that I’ve had to call him for something, he has always answered…very impressive nowadays. Thanks Mr. Wagner
