Decades of Legal Experience
Daniel M. Margolis has dedicated himself to the law since obtaining his J.D. in 1996 and being admitted to the Oho Bar. Through the past two decades of living and working in Northeast Ohio, he has gathered a unique insight into both the adult and juvenile justice systems in Cuyahoga County and across Ohio. He not only offers objective legal knowledge to every client, he gives you his honest advice based on real-world experience.
When it comes to criminal matters, he knows how law enforcement gathers evidence, completes investigations, and can anticipate the moves prosecutors might make. This level of knowledge and experience gives Dan the ability to offer candid opinions regarding possible outcomes and how to take preemptive action on your behalf.
Benefit form Multiple Perspectives
One of the reasons attorney Daniel M. Margolis is such a skilled criminal defense lawyer is he has spent considerable time on both sides of the courtroom. He entered the legal profession as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Cuyahoga County, and was assigned to the difficult Appeals Division. He was also a founding member of the county’s first Arson Unit and handled many high-profile cases in the Juvenile Justice Unit.
During his years as a prosecutor, Dan learned what it took to gain a conviction. With the ability to view your case from multiple perspectives, he can thoroughly prepare for trial, analyze the best defense strategies, and aggressively fight for the best outcome.
Unique Skills and Knowledge
Attorney Margolis is far more than an experienced and skilled trial attorney. During his time at the Vermont Law School, he was an active member of the local fire department. Based on his personal experience with firefighting and arson prosecution, Dan is in a unique position to defend against allegations of arson. He knows what to look for and how to analyze the authorities’ investigation and findings. He can address arson-related evidence at any level in a way that benefits or reduces the negative impact to your case.
Juvenile, underage, and student cases can be complicated. When a young person faces trouble with the law, a lot is at stake. How their case is handled and the eventual outcome will have a profound effect on their life. A conviction can set an intelligent and capable adolescent down the wrong path, limiting their rights and opportunities to an almost insurmountable degree. A negative outcome with a school or district could prevent them from obtaining the education they are entitled to, setting them back in virtually all their pursuits. Dan aggressively fights to avoid such harsh and lasting outcomes.
Through his work as an assistant prosecutor in the juvenile court system, Dan knows what adolescents are up against. This is why he represents adolescents in criminal and educational cases. His success in this area has made him a leading authority on defending prominent juvenile cases, including sex offenses.
Track Record of Success
You don’t have to take attorney Margolis at his word regarding his skill and experience. Instead, look at his track record. After 20 years, he has handled thousands of cases in dozens of different courts throughout Ohio. You can read many favorable reviews and testimonials from his past clients, highlighting the success Dan achieved on their behalf.

When you speak with Dan, he will approach your case with compassion from the beginning. He is here to listen to your situation, answer your questions, and offer you the best advice possible.
