"I am so impressed and so thankful that you have created such an amazing company. I truly do not know what my life would be like without I know a ton of people feel the same way. We have become like a big family over the past few years and I feel so lucky to be a part of it. Thank you for everything you do daily to make it happen." -MS

"Thanks for all that you do Dan! It has really been a privilege working with you, and the extra income has made a big difference. I hope to spend many more years working with you." -TR

"Thank you so much for what you've done and allowing me to be a part of a great team with an even greater leader. Best attorney with a ponytail this world has ever seen!" -RM

"Dan the man. I am new to your team, but have enjoyed working with you all. After I had a very negative experience at my first job out of school, I swore off ever working for another attorney. I credit you with showing me that not all lawyers are self-motivated. There are a lot of us that genuinely care about our clients. I like to think that you and I have a very similar view of how to practice law and that I see a lot of myself in you and would like to think that you see a lot of yourself in me. Thank you for bringing me on to your team. I am eager to see how we can build this firm and what other great things are yet to come. Congrats on 10 years." -GS

"Thanks for your vision and drive. I'm glad to be a new part of your dream and looking forward to helping it grow and mature beyond your wildest expectations! Together, I believe, all of us can enjoy the fruits of your vision, drive. Happy 10th to!" -CH

"Your diligence and vision have created a model of entrepreneurial success. There are plenty of good lawyers in the world, but the attorney who is both a master of his practice and a strong businessman is rare indeed. While in law school, I was tasked to interview an individual I knew who embodied legal leadership. In retrospect, my decision to profile you feels prescient -- you emphasized professionalism and savvy business development, two of the bedrock values of iTicket. The opportunity to work with you has given me far more than a paycheck. Your business restored my sense of professional self-worth and allowed me to meet an entirely new network of lawyers across western North Carolina. When you hired me, you told me (sternly) that you were making a decision based on your business, not friendship; I had no idea that the opportunity to grow iTicket regionally would offer financial success and personal reward in equal parts. I am very, very proud to be your friend. I hope you appreciate this nice note because I cried a little writing it." -MW

"Your equipment is improper, but your heart is pure. Congrats and many more." -AS

"Congratulations on the firm turning 10! It has grown into this amazing success but I'm not surprised with you as it's fearless leader. Thank you so much for everything you've done for me the past two years, from simply checking in to writing my letter of recommendation. You're an inspiration and I'm so fortunate to have met and learned from you!" -CF

"Dan, congrats on all of the success. I know I haven't been along for the entire ride, but I still think it's insane how far iTicket has come. If it has gotten this big after 10 years, just imagine the growth the next decade will bring. Thank you so much for allowing me to join the team and for being such a great leader - I truly appreciate everything you do." -JV

"I appreciate your assurance in the staff. You've had encouraging words for me since my first day in the office, and you display that firm confidence for everyone who's a part of the family. I'm also thankful for our little conversations - about my friends, about vinyl records, about my underage status - because each and every one of them reveal how much you care, and reaffirm me not just as a staff member, but as your friend as well. Thank you." -MS

"It's hard to believe that little contact form with the mismatched button turned into all this. It's an honor to have been involved all these years. I'm excited to see what more the future holds!" -PG

"With the 10 year anniversary of this dream of yours comes a time to both celebrate and reflect. It is simply incredible to know what you started with and where you are today. You are a true success story and it's inspiring. But beyond that, I think we the attorneys most of all, owe you the biggest thanks for pursuing this dream of yours and in bringing us to that dream. It has been a privilege working with you for the past 2+ years and watching iTicket grow. Dumb luck and a twisting of fate brought us together and I cannot thank you enough for believing in me and giving me the chance I so desperately needed at that time. Cheers to 10 successful years and 10 even more successful years." -KM

"First off, thank you Dan. For everything that you have built and from all the lives you've touched along the way, thank you. You have improved our community with positive growth and stability, something everyone strives to do. Secondly, I wanted to say thank you from myself. You gave the small people a chance to learn and dream. Allowing us to step into an atmosphere that normally doesn't give young people a second glance, but you did, and for that I am forever grateful. I am excited to see what happens in the next 10 years, and how the world will look a little brighter with what you strive to do. Thank you again Dan." -LW

"Dan stands out amongst the competition because Dan genuinely cares for his clients and his employees. Whether Dan is busy prepping cases or returning from a busy high volume day, he always takes the time to speak with clients if they ask for it and makes sure their best interests come first. Additionally, Dan genuinely cares for and supports his employees and it has not gone unnoticed. Since joining iTicket, I can't begin to describe how many times Dan has supported me both personally and professionally. It's been an honor to have had the opportunity to work with Dan over the past 2 years and I look forward to the years to come!" -CA

"Congratulations on ten years of building one of Chapel Hill's premiere law firms. You're a true innovator and one of the most successful entrepreneurs in Chapel Hill. Plus, your contribution to the community is legendary. Plus, you're a great guy. Plus, you have a beautiful wife in Caroline and a great son in William. It's not difficult to see you've done alright!" -GI

"Thanks so much for bringing me onto the team! It has been a pleasure working for the company and I hope to continue to help us all succeed. You have built an amazing firm, hired fantastic attorneys and employed terrific staff. The fact that you have done all of this while supporting Extraordinary Ventures speaks to the great guy you are. Thanks for everything!" -MK

"Thank you, Dan, for including me in your iTicket vision. I value your friendship and constant willingness to be supportive. Here's to many more years!" -GM

"Dan, congrats on and thank you for building such an exceptional firm. You are a distinguished advocate, fashion icon, and all around man among men in the community." -TB

"Thank you so much for working so hard! We appreciate all that you've done and I'm so grateful to have had the amazing opportunity of working at iTicket. I hope your outfits continue being solid 10/10's and you keep being so cool!" -ET

"Dan, you are a legend! You are an inspiration. I am incredibly grateful for the amount of investment and trust that you have shown in me. One day I hope to repay you with a full fledged PI wing of the firm. Also, one day I hope to dress as fly as you do daily. I really don't have a quick way to show my appreciation in the faith you have shown in me. You call me "Young Buck" all the time but it really demonstrates how much you have taken me under your wing. The sheer amount of knowledge that you have been able to impart in the past year has been incredible. You have been an incredible resource both with advice about this job and with my life outside of work. I hope you know how proud we all are of what you have created in the last 10 years. Here's to another 10 years of innovation and market disruption!" -AJ

"Dan, you are one of the most well-rounded people I know! You manage to run a huge company that not only continues to grow, but also maintains one of the best office cultures out there. You don't stop at taking care of your iTicket team, but you also directly support the employment of more than 15 other individuals with developmental disabilities through your business. You volunteer your time to help others, you are an active Board President and somehow still manage to make it to happy hour every Friday with your staff. You are an all-around successful and impressive person, but the most remarkable thing about you is that you are able to do all of this while still giving no less than your entire self to your family every day. Cheers to another ten years as good as your first!" -PF

"Congratulations on ten years in practice! You have a lot to be proud of with the development of and a lot to look forward to with its continuing success." -JS

"It means a great deal to be invited to learn from the wisdom and verve you possess and transmit. Grateful to be part of your team." -NS

"I truly admire your vision for and all the hard work that you've put into making it the best it can be. I'm so grateful for the opportunity you gave me to be a part of that vision, and continue to be amazed by all that you've accomplished so far. Here's to ten more years!" -AF
