About Me

I spend the majority of my professional time representing invididuals and familes who have received substandard and negligent medical care from their doctors, hospitals, and nursing homes. 


My associate, Lauren Ellerman, and I also represent employees in non-competition and non-solicitation disputes throughout the state of Virginia.  Finally, we represnt businesses in cases involving breach of contract, conspiracy, and other business tort claims.

  • Lauren Morgan Ellerman

    Dan was voted one of the best Malpractice attorneys in Roanoke this week by Roanoker Magazine. He is compassionate, dedicated and will work diligently for each client. When you work for someone you get to know them. I know that he cares about his cases, clients - and is well respected by the entire Bar in Roanoke. Its always better to have an attorney that is respected and liked - and Dan is. I also know that Medical Malpractice and Non-compete cases can be very emotional. Do you want someone who will be firm, but focused? Then call Dan.
