Dan joined Chilton Yambert Porter in 2001. His practice focuses on Workers' Compensation. He has tried and reviewed hundreds of cases before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission. In addition, he has handled dozens of cases through the appeals process in the Circuit Courts and the Appellate Court- Workers' Compensation Division. Dan's practice has permitted him to carve out an expertise representing defendants in actions brought under the Jones' Act and retaliatory discharge. Dan's experience includes common law and maritime defense; he has tried many cases to verdict before a jury.

Dan has conducted several seminars for claims professionals on such topics as "The Basics: What Every Claims Professional Needs to Know About Illinois Workers' Compensation", subrogation techniques, the art of negotiating workers' compensation case, and the 2005 and 2011 Amended Workers' Compensation Act. In 2015, Dan made a presentation at the IICLE 2nd Annual Workers' Compensation Law Institute regarding the Respondent's perspectives on "Evidentiary Considerations in Claims Involving the Intoxication Defense."
