About Danny

Learn Danny’s areas of practice.

     I have been representing insurance companies and policyholders in commercial liability and professional liability insurance coverage litigation, and defending attorneys in professional liability and bar disciplinary claims for over 25 years.  In addition, I represent accreditation agencies and organizations in disputes arising out of accreditation decisions.  I have handled numerous cases at the trial and appellate levals in Virginia, the District of Colombia and Maryland, and am licensed to practice in all three of those jurisdicitons.  I have published and lectured extensively across the country on topics related to my primary practice areas.

     Since 2003 I have been an attorney and shareholder with the McLean, Virginia office of Sands Anderson, P.C., a 75-attorney firm with offices in Richmond, Virginia, Christianburg, Virginia, and Raleigh, North Carolina.  Prior to that I was a partner with Schraub & Howell, Ltd. in McLean, Virginia.

Competent attorney
I was referred to Danny by another attorney. He is competent and empathic and was able to guide me into having a life insurance claim denial reversed.
