“Litigation is a necessary evil in today’s world. You must be prepared to defend and pursue claims to protect yourself from those who do not follow the rules. I’m here to help you do that.”
Dan Branum is the owner of Branum PLLC, Attorneys at Law. The main office used to be in Downtown Dallas, but has moved to the small town of Olney Texas, near Wichita Falls and Graham, Texas.
Prior to founding Branum PLLC, Dan spent most of his career in the Litigation Section at the well-regarded international law firm of Locke Lord LLP. He also practiced at Figari + Davenport, a Texas top litigation boutique. While working in big law, he gained experience in complex commercial litigation, trial work, general business litigation, real estate litigation, consumer fraud litigation, internal and government investigations, first-party insurance defense, and e-discovery management.
Dan has considerable experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in state and federal courts at every stage of the litigation process, from pre-suit investigation and settlement negotiation to trial and appellate work. Dan has worked with clients in numerous industries, including oil and gas, insurance, construction, agriculture, real estate, mortgage and lending, software development, and consumer finance.
In 2019, Dan opened the new office in Olney, Texas and now has an ever-broadening list of practice areas including litigation of all kinds, bad faith insurance, real estate, business advisement, oil & gas, wills & estates, personal injury, family law and bankruptcy, among others.
Dan is originally from Oklahoma, but he has spent most of his adult life in Austin, Houston, and Dallas. Now Dan and his family own a small farm and he works with clients across the states of Texas and Oklahoma. As such, Dan feels just as comfortable representing Fortune 500 companies as he does individuals and has been successful in both urban and rural courts.
Dan has assisted clients with investigations involving the SEC, FTC, FINRA, OFAC, state attorneys general, and internal corporate malfeasance. Dan is highly skilled in the field of e-discovery management, techniques, and best practices.
Dan is a member of numerous community and professional organizations including the Dallas Bar Association, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, Dallas Trial Lawyers Association, Oklahoma Association of Justice, Dallas Young Lawyers Association, Texas Young Lawyers Association, and the Computer and Technology and Oil, Gas, and Energy Resources Law Sections of the Texas Bar Association.
As part of his pro bono work, Dan has represented victims of fraudulent real estate transactions and assisted families with adoptions. In Dan’s free time he enjoys carpentry, tending to the farm, hunting & shooting, traveling, and spending time with his family.
