During his summers, Dan returned home to Great Falls where he was a law clerk for two well established civil litigation firms, Church, Harris, Johnson & Williams, P.C. and Davis, Hatley, Haffeman & Tighe, P.C.. Prior to graduation, he was selected by his peers to be the law class of 2020 class speaker.

After graduation, Dan accepted a position at a law firm in Great Falls, primarily working on personal injury and criminal defense cases. After meeting his wife, Tayler, Dan moved to Billings to work as an attorney at civil defense litigation firm where he gained valuable experience in the fields of insurance coverage and personal injury litigation. Dan made the decision in 2022 to join Odegaard Injury Lawyers, where the focus of his practice would be helping Montanan's who have been injured or hurt navigate the legal system.
