Personal Dan was born and raised in San Diego. Prior to attending law school, he helped build his family’s growing business. It was here that Dan found that he thrived in a small business environment. While attending law school, he found himself having to pursue his own personal injury claim. This experience provided him with a special appreciation for the process and the need to have adequate representation in order to receive a fair settlement. These experiences drew him to personal injury practice and helping people that are in the situation he was once in.
