Dan then left to open his own criminal defense practice and now devotes his time exclusively to criminal defense and the protection of those accused of crimes. Although Dan defends individuals and businesses in all types of criminal and administrative cases, in both federal and state court throughout California, he specializes in high-stakes felony cases that involve potential life sentences, the death penalty, three-strikes punishment, and other serious felonies.

He then went on to receive his Juris Doctor from Southwestern University School of Law in 1991. He graduated second in his class and earned the prestigious position of Editor-in-Chief of the Southwestern University Law Review.
Experience: Dan was admitted to the California Bar in 1991. He then joined the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office where he served as a felony trial deputy in Inglewood, Eastlake Juvenile Court, Compton, and downtown Los Angeles. Upon leaving the District Attorney’s Office, Dan embarked on a successful private practice, handling a wide variety of complex litigation matters. He built a solid reputation for quality legal work and service for his clients, litigating sophisticated cases that involved highly technical legal issues.
