Dan began his career at a small Arson and Insurance Fraud boutique, where he was fortunate to gain early jury trial experience representing insurers and their insureds in sharply contested matters in courts throughout Western Pennsylvania. In the course of nearly thirty years as a litigator and trial attorney, Dan’s practice has evolved such that he is frequently called upon to serve as lead counsel in complex, large dollar “bet the company” matters in venues throughout the United States.
