We have successfully recovered more than $1 Billion for our clients.



“Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” – Theodore Roosevelt

Daniel DeSantis is a trial attorney at AlderLaw, specializing in personal injury matters including wrongful death, brain injuries, automobile collisions, and premises liability cases. To date, although he prefers to go to trial, Mr. DeSantis has settled over two hundred cases with gross recoveries exceeding $15 million dollars for his clients. Mr. DeSantis aggressively fights against insurance companies, government entities, and their counsel, to obtain what his clients deserve.

In his first three years of the practice of law, Mr. DeSantis’ jury verdicts have collectively resulted in over $4 million dollars in money recovered for his injured clients. Most notably, he obtained a jury verdict that was 4x the Defendant’s insurance policy and several other verdicts where he has multiplied the Defendant’s pre-trial offer to settle. In 2018, Super Lawyers magazine recognized these results and designated Mr. DeSantis as a Rising Star in his profession.
