I see the law as a way to try to create fairness. 

That’s what drives me in the often hostile environment of negotiating claims, litigation and dispute resolution - the idea that at the end I can help my clients achieve a sense of justice through the work I do.  As a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates, I am committed to preserving our judicial system for future generations, preserving the independence of judges, and elevating the standards of integrity, honor, ethics, civility and courtesy in the legal profession.

When I’m working with a client, I like to look at the situation from angles that others may miss and to imagine all of the possible scenarios and outcomes.  I enjoy mediation and believe that an attorney can help achieve a client’s goals through tough negotiation.  I also believe that there are times when taking a case to a jury is the way to realize justice. 

I think one of the best things a lawyer can do for a client is to look him or her in the eye and give an honest opinion of the strength of their claims and whether it is in their best interest to negotiate or go to trial.

Up front and honest...
Mr. Ross + team helped me through a messy and traumatic employment separation situation, and did so with complete honesty regarding potential outcomes, and a much needed sense of humor. I will be forever grateful.

Made the Best of a Difficult Situation
Working with Dan Ross made having to go through an unfortunate accident followed by a lawsuit so much better than what I would have expected. It was such a relief to find an experienced and thoughtful team of people that cared about my recovery and my case. Dan Ross and Megan Evans with the Ross Law Group helped me maneuver through one of the most traumatic experiences in my life and provided support throughout the entire process of battling with my insurance company. Dan's confidence and experience helped to ease my worries and anxieties throughout a very stressful process. Dan and Megan swiftly settled my case and I was more than pleased with the outcome! At the start of my agreement with the Ross Law Group, I expressed a number that I wanted to walk away with and I ended up with a higher settlement thanks to their negotiation skills and all of the hard work and time that Dan and Megan devoted to my case. It really meant a lot to me that throughout this process I always felt like I was well informed because Dan & Megan always took the time to explain how each step (depending on what I decided to do) would impact my case. I will always be thankful for the assistance that the Ross Law Group provided, and while I hope that my friends and family will never have to be in a situation where they would need to retain a lawyer I know that by recommending Dan, Megan, and the Ross Law Group they would be in excellent hands.

Great Law Firm
Mr Ross is a wonderful human being first and then a great attorney. I had never hired an attorney prior to hiring Mr Ross. I was very skeptical of attorneys and did not feel I was a person that would ever want to sue anyone. I had a MVA with an 18 wheeler. They left me no other choice. My husband saw Mr Ross on the News one evening, he was giving out free legal advice. My husband liked him for some reason and he took his number down. I was hesitant to hire an attorney for my case. I wanted to attempt to settle it on my own. I finally made the call because I felt like I wasn't getting any where with the people responsible for my wreck and damages I sustained due to their carelessness. I read some of the reviews people had written on Mr Ross and his law firm and also just his face seemed friendly and sincere. Once I met him, I knew he was going to do everything it took to settle my case. It took 3yrs of great legal work to finally settle my case without going to trial. I received a good settlement. But most of all, I changed my feelings about attorneys. I would recommend Mr Ross and his team of experts to anyone In need of great representation, they conducted themselves like true professionals and I felt like they really cared for me as a person. I feel like I have made some friends and if I ever need an attorney again, I will definitely contact them.

Dan Ross, excellent personal injury attorney.
Dan is truly an excellent attorney. Dan came to visit me in the hospital at my wife's request. I was immediately comfortable with Dan. He always showed genuine concern for my family and me. He very thorough, he thinks of everything. He was very forthcoming with information. He told me what he would do and did just that. My case was settled much quicker than I ever thought was possible and the results exceeded my expectations by far. We are not done, but thanks to Dan I can pay some bills, relax and focus on my recovery. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a personal injury attorney.

Intelligent, Driven, results orientated, Defense lawyer's nightmare
I worked with the Ross law Group and was new to dealing with legal issues. Mr Ross, (Dan) to his client is very charismatic, engaging, funny and driven. He was open to questions and left nothing for us to guess. He explained the map in front of us and what our journey would entail. When dealing with our opponent he was professional and always seemed to have an upper hand. His experience and confidence shows thru difficult times and he has a presence that opposing counsel will not soon forget. With a take no prisoners attitude, he will fight on your behalf while still keep professionalism and legality well in sight. He was masterful to watch during proceedings and left us with a constant feeling of confidence in our selves and our case. He will impress even the most learned of courtroom critics as I don't believe many want to tangle with him. If you need counsel, you would be mistaken not to look his way first. Incredible!

Exceptional client service and representation
Dan impressed me from the first moment with both his concern for my case and his candor regarding likely outcomes. Within ten minutes of reviewing my employment contract, he'd identified numerous potential avenues for legal recourse - based on my circumstance. I'd heard that Dan wasn't one to shy away from a fight - and thats exactly what I was looking for, someone who would fight for me - and Dan's team did not disappoint. The negotiation was something like a chess match, and Dan proved very adept at adapting our strategy without giving up ground. And it was clear from the opposing side's actions that they knew they were dealing with an experienced and tactical attorney. Aside from delivering the result I was hoping for, Dan's team did an exceptional job of communicating and level-setting during what was often a very emotionally charged process. Not once did my call go to voicemail - and in fact, in almost every instance, I was on the phone with an attorney within 5 minutes. That level of attention may not have been critical for their success in the case, but it helped a great deal to calm my anxiety and keep me focused on the key facts of the case. I have recommended Ross Law Group to friends and family - and will definitely continue to do so.

Awesome Firm & First Class Staff
If you are seeking an attorney and don't know where to go or who you can trust, then I recommend If you are seeking an attorney and don't know where to go or who you can trust, then I recommend Nicole Conger with Ross Law Group. This is the status we were in before Ross Group and Nicole came to the rescue. Nicole & team handled our case with the upmost professionalism. She had an impeccable sense of dedication, commitment, and understanding when working with me. She is very compassionate, highly educated and is an asset to the Ross Law Group. She handled my case with integrity, sincerity and honesty and kept me informed regularly. For such a stressful time in our lives, I feel she treated us with the same level of attention she would her own family. Not to mention her humor definitely kept things entertaining. I can not thank Mr. Ross or Ms. Conger enough for their support.

Dan Ross excellent lawyer.
I had the opportunity of working with Dan Ross and his assistant Megan at The Ross Law Group in a slip and fall accident. I found them to be extremely knowledgeable, compassionate and very responsive to me and my case. I would not hesitate to recommend them as a professional and caring law office.

Awesome lawyer - no matter the case size
I hired Dan to represent me in a case against a very large medical company. Ultimately, our case settled. But had it gone to trial, there's no one I would choose to better represent me. Dan is not only a talented, experienced lawyer, but has become a friend and consultant. He was ALWAYS available. And if he didn't know the answer to a question, he found it quickly. I would highly recommend Dan Ross for any case, big or small. Car accident or major litigation against a Fortune 500 company - he can handle it. And he'll win.

Awesome attorney
After consulting with 2 different lawyers here in the Dallas Ft Worth area an not getting anywhere we contacted the Ross Law Group via a recommendation of my brother. He had used the firm a few years ago and said they were great. We worked primarily with Dan Ross and Jonathan Sandstrom Hill and I can't say enough good things about them. They kept in constant contact with us, letting us know what to expect each step of the way. We were extremely impressed with their knowledge and expertise. . .they really know their stuff! They were prompt and had a geniune interest in not only our case but our well being. We trusted them completely. Our case was handled quickly and the settlement was alot more than we expected. I will be recommending this law firm to everyone. . .we couldn't be happier!!

Dan Ross is an Excellent Lawyer
I wanted someone to look out for me and my interests and Dan Ross did a great job for me. He explained the law in plain terms and let me know what to expect. He is a tough negotiator and got the insurance company for the person who injured me to pay a lot more than they originally offerred. His staff is fantastic. I am very happy with his representation and the results.
