Dennis Daniels is an experienced litigator and trial lawyer who defends clients in high-profile and high-exposure cases in Texas, California, and throughout the United States. Clients praise him for his exceptional “strategy and attention to detail” and “going above and beyond on all fronts.”
Dennis frequently takes cases to trial and has served as lead counsel on several cases which resulted in complete verdicts for his clients. His recent trial experience includes serving as co-lead trial counsel in two separate week-long trials, obtaining complete defense verdicts and attorneys’ fee awards on behalf of a financial services client, defending against claims of fraud and misrepresentation. He also served as local counsel for a client that was able to obtain a judgment against its former founder and chief executive officer for her breach of covenants not to compete and not to solicit employees.
Clients hire Dennis to defend them in high-exposure cases, especially when they are faced with difficult plaintiffs’ attorneys and forced to litigate in hostile venues. His recent experience includes defending a client that was able to settle out of the case before an East Texas jury returned a record-setting $730 million verdict in a wrongful death case.
Praised by his clients for his “honesty and integrity,” Dennis has been able to guide clients through problematic cases, ranging from lawsuits involving catastrophic injuries to sensitive business disputes involving accusations of fraud and other wrongdoing.
Fortune 500 companies retain Dennis to defend them in a variety of complex commercial disputes involving claims for breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duties, fraudulent transfers, misappropriation of trade secrets, and disputes over ownership interest and control of the company. In one headline-grabbing case, he assisted in the defense of a leading energy company in global litigation, exposing fraud and racketeering by opposing counsel and his co-conspirators in obtaining an unenforceable $9 billion judgment arising from alleged environmental contamination in Ecuador.
