Your Choice Of Attorney Is Important — Choose Wisely

Daniel Lyons is a principal attorney in the law firm of Attorney Dan Lyons & Associates in West Haven, Connecticut. Dan is a litigation attorney who enjoys a solid reputation for his legal ability and professional ethics. He is a versatile lawyer with the ability and experience to handle both criminal and civil cases to a successful conclusion. His two main areas of concentration are Criminal Defense Law and Plaintiff's Personal Injury.

Lyons is a member of the Connecticut, New Haven, Milford, and West Haven Bar Associations. He is also a member of the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association and the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association. He enjoys a collegial relationship with many of the lawyers in these associations, and has developed numerous working relationships with other lawyers who refer their own client's cases to Dan to handle--so-called "lawyer-to-lawyer" referrals.

Practice Concentrated in Criminal Defense and Litigation

Dan has extensive experience in Criminal Law and his Firm has developed a Criminal Defense Practice that is statewide in scope. He regularly covers cases in the Connecticut Superior Courts in Bridgeport, Milford, Derby, New Haven, Meriden, and Middletown. He prides himself on his firm's ability to offer serious and vigorous legal representation for reasonable legal fees.

As a former Prosecutor in both Part A and Part B of the Connecticut Superior Courts, he knows the criminal justice system very well and knows how to navigate a case through the system to a reasonable and successful conclusion. His clientele face a wide variety of offenses ranging from homicides, robberies, sexual assaults, and weapons charges to driving under the influence, domestic violence, larceny, and juvenile court charges.

Practice Concentrated in Injury Law and Litigation

Attorney Lyons has considerable experience and ability as a civil litigator, representing injured people who bring claims for monetary damages against other people whose negligence caused the injuries. If Dan's clients are injured by uninsured drivers, he has successfully brought claims against his clients' own auto insurance policies, which, contrary to popular misconception, does not result in an increase in the client's auto insurance premium

These injury claims for monetary damages arise out of a wide variety of mishaps, including accidents involving autos, trucks, and motorcycles; medical malpractice; slip and fall accidents; pedestrian accidents; and some work-related accidents.

The nature of the injuries Dan handles range from wrongful death, spinal cord injuries that have life altering consequences, post traumatic stress disorder, TMJ Syndrome, permanent disfigurement and scarring injuries, and soft-tissue injuries involving the neck and back.


Dan Lyons is a native of West Haven, and currently resides there with his wife and family. Dan has a Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Connecticut, and earned his Juris Doctorate Degree from New England School of Law in Boston, Massachusetts, where he graduated Cum Laude.

He feels strongly about giving back to his community and has focused his community involvement in activities where he believes he can make meaningful contributions. For example, Dan is one of the founders and a past President of the West Haven Bar Association, as well as past President of both West Haven Youth Hockey and the West Haven Child Development Center. For several years, Dan served as one of the coaches of the Mock Trial Team at West Haven High School , and he takes pride in the fact that his "Westies" won four State of Connecticut Mock Trial Championships against formidable competition.

When he is able to carve out some leisure time from the demands of a busy law practice, Dan loves to golf, spend time on the beach with his family and friends, and surf cast for bluefish and striped bass.
