Daniel N. Hammond
Dan Hammond has always understood the value of hard work. Whether it was helping transform a broken collegiate mock trial team into a repeat national qualifier, or navigating a labyrinth of complex legal issues to craft an opinion worthy of a judge’s signature, Dan’s commitment to excellence and willingness to make sacrifices have consistently produced results.
Prior to joining Beck Redden, Dan clerked for the Honorable Joseph F. Bianco on the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of New York and Justice Allison Eid of the Colorado Supreme Court. As a law clerk at both the appellate and trial levels, he saw firsthand the types of advocacy that courts and juries find most compelling and came to appreciate the importance of presenting a client’s case in a straightforward, concise manner that focuses on the key details. Dan is thrilled at the prospect of leveraging this knowledge to advance his clients’ interests at every stage of litigation, and he will work tirelessly on their behalf.
