Daniel J. Mohan

Daniel J. Mohan

Dan represents railroads, real estate companies, manufacturers and other businesses in civil litigation in federal and state courts on both a regional and national level. He founded Daley Mohan Groble in 1995 on the principal that attorneys should represent clients' businesses as rigorously and efficiently as if they were representing their own.

Dan spent the first ten years of his career with a Fortune 500 railroad company as a trial attorney, where he earned an exceptional record of jury verdict wins. He was then promoted into the company's business hierarchy, where he gained special insight and empathy for the challenges facing business management. Dan now serves as national and regional counsel for publicly traded companies, and as outside general counsel for privately held businesses.

He frequently teaches litigation and trial practice strategies at industry and association seminars and at a national trial college.
