About Me

Before law school, he attended Montana State University and graduations with a B.S. in Cell Biology and Neuroscience in 3 years.

Dan is proud of his Montana background and his experience in Montana. From a young age, he took on a variety of jobs. Dan has worked as a mechanic on heavy equipment, operated his own roofing business, worked for medical providers, and interned at the University of Montana - General Legal Counsel's office. Dan's focus is on personal injury, family law, and medical malpractice.


Located in Great Falls, Flaherty Law Office serves a wife geographical base. Clients are represented from Missoula, to Troy, to Billings, and Bozeman. Recently, the firm had success working with one of Montana's greatest attorney's, Steve Potts, in prosecuting a wrongful death discrimination case against a County Detention Center.
