Daniel “Danny” J. Poolson, Jr. has one main goal as an attorney: to lead his clients from difficult situations to successful outcomes so they can move forward with their lives.
Danny is a native of New Orleans and is a 1999 graduate of Jesuit High School. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and a minor in English from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge in 2003. Danny returned to New Orleans to attend Loyola University School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 2006. In law school, Danny was a member of both Moot Court and the Trial Advocacy Program, serving as President of Trial Ad in his third year (2005-2006).
Following law school, Danny was honored to serve as a judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Marilyn Castle, Chief Judge of the 15th Judicial District Court in Lafayette, Louisiana. As a State Court Law Clerk, he worked on complex litigation gaining valuable experience in several practice areas, including personal injury cases and insurance claim disputes. After practicing law for several years in Lafayette, Danny returned to New Orleans to practice law and contribute to the rebuilding of the city. Danny is licensed to practice law in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.
Professionally, Danny has achieved an “AV” rating with Martindale-Hubbell which is the highest ranking attainable by an attorney based on evaluations by other attorneys and judges for the highest level of professional excellence and ethics in the practice of law. Danny has recently been invited into the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum because of the compensation he has obtained for his clients. Danny has also been named a Top 40 under 40 in the National Trial Lawyers Association.
Danny is married to Amy D. Poolson of Opelousas, LA, and they are the proud parents of twins. When he is not working hard on his cases, Danny enjoys spending time with his family and traveling to see the LSU Tigers play.
