Professional Experience

Dan is an associate in the firm’s Seattle office.  He brings to the firm a background in business stemming from a successful first career working in management for a major national retailer and from practicing business and nonprofit development law in Saint Louis University’s Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic.  These experiences give him important insight into the needs and problems facing business clients, as well as the importance of compassion when dealing with the more sensitive issues a business or its employees might be facing.

When not working, Dan is an avid fan of professional and collegiate sports.  He also enjoys the hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking adventures that attracted him, his fiancée, and their growing family to the Seattle area.
