Throughout his career, Dana has enjoyed the role of self-starting business man. Before obtaining the age of 30, Dana operated a family owned bottled water distributorship and obtained his Bachelor Degree in Economics at Arizona State University. Through careful management strategy, Dana tripled the business’ revenue in five years. The business education and experience he obtained during this time provided a strong foundation for what would eventually become his second career – owning and operating a law office specializing in business and estate planning.
Prior to starting his own practice, Dana worked as a law firm associate and obtained a breadth of knowledge and experience perfectly suited for advising owners of closely held businesses. He was given the opportunity to handle cases involving Workers Compensation defense, Labor Board hearings, business succession, estate planning, sophisticated real estate and financial transactions, as well as business selection and formation. In 1999, Dana had gathered the skills and experience needed to start his own practice. He has worked as a business attorney in the Orange and Riverside Counties of Southern California ever since.
Dana has maintained the same practice focus from the beginning. He continues to assist clients in matters ranging from simple will and trust drafting to more complicated business strategy and management issues. Most recently, Dana has enjoyed working as general outside counsel to small businesses. Dana also leads seminars, continuing education courses, and advising sessions on topics pertaining to business and estate law.
