Dan focuses his practice on commercial litigation and business immigration. Dan has a wide array of civil litigation experience, and has first-chaired multiple jury trials.

In his immigration practice Dan counsels businesses on how best to navigate the often-baffling maze of United States immigration laws and regulations. While Dan focuses primarily on business immigration, he also helps individuals obtain permanent and temporary immigration status. Dan is a fluent Spanish speaker.
