Dan combines a genuine passion for the law and a tireless work ethic to foster creative solutions to his clients’ legal problems. He specializes in developing and executing targeted, cost-effective resolution strategies in complex insurance coverage and real estate litigation matters.

Dan is a summa cum laude graduate of Tulane University Law School, where he was elected to the Order of the Coif and served as the Senior Associate Editor of the Tulane Law Review. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Colorado, graduating with a B.S. in Mathematics after being named to the Dean’s List five times. He joined the firm in 2010 and uses his academic aptitude to develop and implement creative solutions to clients’ complex legal problems. Dan prides himself on his writing ability and has been involved in numerous victories at both the summary judgment and appellate stages of litigation, including before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the Louisiana Supreme Court.

Prior to joining Lugenbuhl, Dan worked in the New York office of an international law firm, focusing on commercial and securities litigation. He now defends individuals and entities in a wide variety of commercial disputes, with an emphasis on insurance coverage and real estate litigation. Dan has experience representing insurers in oil-and-gas, well control, and pollution-related matters; evaluating and responding to claims for additional insured/contractual liability coverage; and defending insurers against first- and third-party bad faith claims. Additionally, a substantial portion of his practice is dedicated to commercial real estate litigation. While each case is unique, Dan believes in a proactive approach to litigation whereby a long-term resolution strategy is developed early in the case and then pursued in an aggressive yet cost-effective manner.
