Attorney Profile:

Daniel B. Graves

Daniel B. Graves: Attorney with Graves McLain PLLC

Biography

Dan Graves has spent over 20 years recovering millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for people injured by the negligence of others. His successes in complex litigation include medical negligence, wrongful death, civil rights violation cases, and insurance bad faith.

Dan has extensive experience fighting and winning against powerful corporations, insurance companies, and state agencies, in high-profile litigation.

Dan recognizes that the settlement values of his client’s cases are valued, in large part, by two things: 1) the willingness of their attorney to take the client’s case to trial; and 2) their attorney’s ability to succeed in front of a jury. Dan has tried numerous cases to successful jury verdict for his clients – whether their claim involved soft tissue injuries (whiplash) in a car wreck, or the death of a loved one.

Dan is rated “AV Preeminent” by Martindale-Hubbell and has been repeatedly chosen for Oklahoma Super Lawyer. He maintains the highest Avvo rating of 10 out 10. Dan has been featured in Oklahoma Magazine readers as a “Best of the Best” Lawyer in Oklahoma.

Phi Delta Phi. Recipient: American Jurisprudence Award in Legal Research and Writing; American Jurisprudence Award for Professional Responsibility (Legal Ethics); Philip Alan Porta Memorial Scholarship for Legal Ethics; Martindale-Hubbell's Highest Rating for Legal Ability and Ethics. Private Pilot.
