As a seasoned attorney with the law office of Keller & Keller, Dan views the courtroom as a place where everyday people can meet massive corporations on a level playing field.
He grew up in West Union, Ohio and attended West Union High School. Following graduation, he spent two years living in Brazil, where he did missionary work. He went on to Wright State University, graduating summa cum laude in 2007.
He attended Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law, graduating in 2010 with honors once again, magna cum laude. Along the way, Dan was a semi-finalist for the Robert H. Staton Intramural Moot Court Competition, was part of the Order of the Barristers and was a competitor in the Phillip C. Jessup International Law moot court.
Dan joined the law firm of Keller & Keller in 2011, focusing his practice on personal injury litigation, commercial litigation, wrongful death and automobile no-fault law.
In his short career, Dan has already established a reputation for winning cases and earning positive outcomes for clients:
- Dan won two six-figure settlements for a South Bend, Indiana client involved in two separate collisions, despite a preexisting condition.
- In 2012, he won a verdict on behalf of an injured client from Plainwell, Michigan who was hit by a car and ejected from his motorcycle.
- Dan overcame a motion to dismiss to recover compensation for a Watervliet, Michigan client who required surgery after being injured by faulty concrete at a cemetery while attending a funeral.
“A courtroom is the only place where the average, everyday person can compete on a level playing field with a large, multinational corporation. No matter the power, influence, or money of either party, each side's fate ultimately rests in the hands of a jury made of a cross-section of the community.”
In addition to his many successful cases, Dan has written legal papers and delivered presentations on topics including products liability, tort reform and the False Claims Act.
He is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association, the Michigan State Bar Association and the American Bar Association.
A family man, Dan is married with two children.
When not practicing law, Dan enjoys playing basketball, golf and visiting the shores of Lake Michigan. He is also a den leader for a local Cub Scout troop.
Dan believes in the legal process and trusts a jury of peers to achieve fairness and justice regardless of power, money or influence of the parties involved.
