    DANIEL E. FIERSTEIN is an Associate in the Construction Group of Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC and focuses his practice on construction law.

    Dan counsels clients at all tiers of the construction industry, including general contractors, subcontractors, owners, developers, and design professionals. He represents these clients at all phases of construction from contract negotiation through project closeout. Dan has considerable experience prosecuting and defending a variety of construction claims, including mechanics' liens, bond claims, contractual claims, and bid protests. Dan's approach is to help the client define its goals--whether that means bringing a project to completion while avoiding litigation or vigorously pursuing a claim for non-payment--and to achieve those objectives in the most cost effective and efficient manner as the circumstances will allow.

    Prior to joining Cohen Seglias, Dan was a summer associate at a large law firm in Philadelphia. He also served as an intern for the Honorable Jane Cutler Greenspan.
