Dan solves problems. Whether he's litigating an order to show cause or negotiating a lengthy contract, he sees the issues that really matter. I've learned a lot from Dan, not only about the law, but about how to work across departments and get things done. In every case, he leads with his diligence and dedication to get to the right answer in every sense - legal, ethical, and practical. - Drew Edwards, Esq - former colleague at Municipal Credit Union
It is a pleasure to provide this recommendation for Daniel Wiig with whom I worked at MCU. Not only does he have one of the strongest work ethics I have ever witnessed, but he is also efficient, personable and kind. Daniel's superior legal skills are only matched by his extraordinary involvement with the legal community. Daniel knows that being an attorney is more than staying in one's office. He leads, teaches and mentors. I am confident that Daniel will succeed in whatever endeavor he sets his mind to. Neysa Alsina, General Counsel, NYC Office of the Comptroller
