Practice areas
  1. Brain injury
    Brain injuries are extremely complex, which makes brain injury lawsuits even that much more complicated. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a form of acquired brain injury which occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBI can result when the head suddenly and violently hits an object, or when an object pierces the skull and enters brain tissue. Brain injuries are classified by severity; mild, moderate or acute, depending on the symptoms of the injury.

  2. Car accident
    A serious motor vehicle accident not only results in damage to your car, but can cause life-changing, serious injuries to your body and well-being. Medical bills become overwhelming and you may be unable to return to work for a period of time. You need an experienced attorney who can work your case to put it in the best position for pre-suit resolution or to proceed with a lawsuit.

He Dan has appeared on NBC’s Dateline in connection with the firm’s prosecution of a State agency for the wrongful death of a toddler while in daycare. He has had numerous cases featured on the front page of the Tulsa World involving civil rights violations, personal injuries to clients, and death claims.

Dan recognizes that the settlement values of his client’s cases are valued, in large part, by two things: 1) the willingness of their attorney to take the client’s case to trial; and 2) their attorney’s ability to succeed in front of a jury. Dan has tried numerous cases to successful jury verdict for his clients – whether their claim involved soft tissue injuries (whiplash) in a car wreck, or the death of a loved one.

Dan is rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell and has been repeatedly chosen for Oklahoma Super Lawyer. He maintains the highest Avvo rating of 10 out 10. Dan has been featured in Oklahoma Magazine readers as a “Best of the Best” Lawyer in Oklahoma.
