Our beloved friend and colleague, Dan Press, passed away on Wednesday, October 5th after a battle with lung cancer. Dan joined Van Ness Feldman in 1990 and was a partner from 1991 through 2020 when he moved to Senior Counsel.
Dan led a remarkable and rich life. He was a tireless advocate on behalf of Native Americans and, in recent years, was a leader advancing trauma-informed policy, working pro bono as general counsel to the Campaign for Trauma-Informed Policy and Practice. Dan was a wonderful colleague and was a teacher and mentor to many of us over the years and a beloved friend and family member. He will be missed.
As we remember Dan, we wanted to share a link to an alumni profile that Columbia did some years ago. The profile highlights some of Dan's passions and provides insight into Dan's wonderful approach to life.
