Dan’s practice focuses on providing the highest quality Tax counsel and advocacy to fortune 500 companies and beyond. Often this counsel and advocacy results in significant tax savings. He has resolved, both through litigation and settlement, difficult state tax matters before administrative appeal boards, tax tribunals, and courts in more than 25 states (with a particular focus on Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and California). Managing single-state and multi-state audits, planning advice, and interfacing with government officials is also a significant component of Dan’s 14+ year legal career.

Dan has also focused on “the business of law” as a primary tenet to a successful career. This frequently includes managing a team of associates and leveraging other professionals to deliver advice in an efficient and timely manner.

As far as “niche” practices, Dan has developed a particular focus on the taxation of software and emerging technologies and also has extensive experience in State Unemployment Insurance law. Dan’s expertise in the Oil and Gas industry has also led to the development of a specialty practice related to the taxation of natural gas drilling and extraction in the Marcellus Shale region of Pennsylvania.

Recently Dan has been gaining expertise in Pennsylvania Right to Know laws, electronic document collection and retention, and document destruction laws.
