Over the years, Dan has participated in jury trials in Houston County, Coffee County, Dale County, Geneva County, Pike County, Covington County, Monroe County, Mobile County and Lee County, Alabama and Walton County, Florida. He has successfully handled appeals in the Alabama Court of Civil Appeals and Alabama Supreme Court. He has been involved in various forms of alternative dispute resolution, including arbitration and numerous mediations. He has been listed on the Alabama State Court Mediation Roster since 2009.

Dan is married to the former Elizabeth Charbonnet of New Orleans. Dan and Liz have been blessed with five children. The family attends First United Methodist Church in Dothan, Alabama, where Dan has taught a Sunday school class for several years and formerly served as Lay Leader.

Dan is admitted to practice law in the States of Alabama and Florida, all federal courts in Alabama, all federal courts in Arkansas, and the United States District Court for the Northern District of Florida. He is a member of the Houston County Bar Association, Alabama Bar Association, Alabama Association of Justice, and American Association of Justice.

Dan has had two articles published in the Alabama Association of Justice Journal. The first, Golden Rules of Jury Argument, was published in the Fall Journal in 2011.
