Lee Dawn Daniel

go back to attorney list 413.584.1287 Of Counsel

"I want a client to leave my office after the very first meeting with all of their questions answered, and with complete confidence that I will tirelessly use over 30 years of litigation and trial experience to achieve their goals to their satisfaction. I want my client to understand the legal process so that they can make informed choices along the way with my guidance. When there is a true partnership between the attorney and the client, and my client understands that I am there to demystify the law and work for them, they can have peace of mind that they will be well served by me. Most of my clients are referred to me by other clients, lawyers, people inside the court system, and medical providers. That means a lot to me."

Lee is a highly skilled litigator with over 30 years of experience representing clients in matters of personal injury and medical negligence, and has secured multiple million-dollar-plus settlements and verdicts throughout her distinguished career, including a Top Ten Verdict in the Commonwealth for 2003. She has been a repeat presenter at professional development events for the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA) and Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education, Inc. (MCLE), instructing her peers on topics such as evidence, case evaluation, discovery procedures, and trial tactics and techniques. She is a graduate of the Boston University School of Law and the State University of New York at Binghamton. Lee is based in Bacon Wilson's Northampton location.
