Dahl Law

Lawyer ♦ Subchapter V Trustee ♦ Mediator


At Dahl Law, we take equal pride in our professionalism and our people skills. We are a solution-oriented law firm, whether that requires negotiating a settlement or vigorously championing your case in court and other venues.

While we feel that our experience, compassion and, most important, results warrant the fees we charge, we run a cost-conscious and cost-effective practice.

Our guiding philosophy is this: We always want our clients to feel better for having consulted with us.
