Dan earned his Juris Doctorate from the University of Denver in 1975. He began practicing law in Glenwood Springs and Carbondale shortly thereafter. Dan is an AV+ rated attorney (Martindale-Hubbell), which means that other attorneys have given him the highest available peer review rating on legal acumen and ethics. This rating is a testament to the impeccable reputation that he developed over the last 40 years.
