After high school Dan attended UC Davis and graduated with a double major in Economics and Communications. While attending UC Davis and for several years after, Dan worked as a member of the Mendocino Hot Shots, an elite wildland firefighting group. It was while working long shifts in arduous conditions that Dan learned the true value of hard work and planning that he carries with him everyday to the courtroom.
Eventually, Dan attended the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law where he graduated with an emphasis in trial advocacy.
While in law school, Dan was one of the few selected to be a law clerk for the San Francisco District Attorney’s office, where he worked in the Felony Preliminary Hearing and Major Narcotics units. In addition to working in San Francisco, he also interned for the Sacramento District Attorney’s office in the Misdemeanor, Juvenile, and Domestic Violence units.
After graduating from law school, Dan was a sworn Deputy District Attorney in Sacramento County. While working there he conducted numerous jury and bench trials.
In 2010, Dan left the DA’s office to open his own law firm. He expanded his practice in 2012 by apprenticing with a high end estate planning firm in the Sacramento area, and upon completion of his apprenticeship has continued to serve professionals in Sacramento in the areas of estate planning, business formation, and debt collection.
