After graduating from the University of Michigan, Dan Makled went into business with his father, who owned a number of small businesses in the city of Detroit. These businesses included car washes and collision shops among others. When Dan turned 29, after working in his family’s businesses for years, he began feeling as though the work he was doing was not fulfilling or gratifying in the way he wanted it to be. Dan knew he wanted to pursue a field that allowed him to feel as though he was serving a higher purpose. Dan decided he could make a difference in the legal field and returned to law school at thirty years old, graduating near the top of his class. Dan Makled Law Firm started it’s conception there.
Since graduating from law school, Dan has helped many people who were victims of negligence; he loves what he does and considers going to law school the best decision of his life. One of Dan’s favorite parts of the legal process is the one-on-one conversations he has with his clients. Listening to a client’s story, Dan becomes a trusted family friend, rather than just a lawyer. He finds these relationships extremely gratifying, particularly when he secures a full, fair settlement that the insurance company had been delaying or denying.
The history of the Dan Makled Law Firm is to provide quality representation for all injury victims, combined with excellent customer service. Dan is never afraid to go to trial and prepares every case as though it will go to trial. Many law firms will accept a much lower settlement, just to avoid going to trial, but Dan thrives on trying a case for a client in front of a jury. Dan began his legal career working at Garan Lucow Miller, PC, which is an insurance defense firm. He defended against claims to the insurance companies, quickly learning exactly how insurance companies think and act. He then started his own law firm where he now represents injury clients against big insurance companies.
Dan “stays in his lane,” in the sense that he does one thing only—personal injury claims. While many other firms “dabble” in many legal areas, Dan is laser-focused on personal injury, making him highly skilled, experienced, and knowledgeable about every aspect of personal injury claims. Dan’s experience working with adjusters and insurance companies on the defense side gives him a unique perspective that most personal injury attorneys simply do not have.
Believing passionately in the process, Dan offers real, solid representation at a time when you may be feeling anxious, frustrated, and overwhelmed. When you choose the Dan Makled Law Firm, you will never be handed over to a new associate. Your file will never be misplaced, and we will never miss an important date. Dan will take care of you and your case because he has tried many, many cases, winning multi-million-dollar settlements. Dan has won in the Court of Appeals and was a top law student, published in his law school’s law review.
On the personal side, Dan is equally passionate about spending time with his wife and children. With a son and daughter under the age of two, Dan spends most of his time outside the office engaged in family activities. Dan believes that once a client speaks to him, they should no longer feel confused about the process because he will take the time to comprehensively describe the process, letting each client know they can call or text him with any questions regarding their claim.

- Sally, a middle-aged woman, is shopping at her local Target. She slips on a just-mopped floor with no signage indicating the floor was wet or a hazard. Sally suffers from back and neck injuries, but when she tries to deal with the insurance company that represents Target on her own, she receives nothing but delay and deny tactics as they attempt to shift the blame onto her. Sally is unable to work and pay her regular monthly bills due to her injuries and is watching her medical bills mount alarmingly. She still has pain from her injuries, months later, and is beginning to think she will never recover from this incident. Sally decides to talk to attorney Dan Makled. At the end of her first meeting, Sally feels a glimmer of hope for the first time since the accident. She is feeling much less anxious and overwhelmed, as Dan has reassured her that he will deal with the insurance company and will also help her get the treatments she needs for her ongoing back pain. Just a few short months later, after keeping Sally fully informed of the progress regarding the case, Dan’s negotiations have paid off as he has secured a full, fair settlement for Sally. Sally’s settlement will fully pay her medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Sally’s only wish is that she had consulted Dan earlier in the process.
