  • Fred B Burnside

    I litigate against Dan frequently in class action litigation. Dan is extremely bright, an exceptional writer and oral advocate, and willing to go the distance for his clients. In fact, I know of at least one recent case that he took to trial twice (five years apart), and he obtained a major award for his client. Let me put it this way: if I needed a Plaintiff's lawyer, I'd call Dan.
