Attorney At Law
September 20, 2019
Dan Boyce, a Member in the Raleigh, North Carolina office of Nexsen Pruet, has been selected by the NC Triangle Edition of Attorney At Law as Business Litigator of the Month.
The distinction includes a photo of Dan on the cover and a profile highlighting his life and 35-year career. Bob Friedman, the author of the article, describes Boyce as someone who has "gravitas and an incredible wealth of experience in high-stakes litigation" and discusses Dan's familial influences, career at Nexsen Pruet, high-profile cases and life outside the office.
On his career at Nexsen Pruet:
Boyce joined Nexsen Pruet in 2011 because of the ability to draw from a team of attorneys inside the firm with a variety of areas of expertise. "That allowed us to expand our practice into many different markets... teamwork is essential."
On representing LegalZoom:
"Some people thought we shouldn't take on the NC State Bar and that I was crazy to challenge the licensing organization that holds my law license. I thought that it was in the best interest of the public to allow those services because many users of online document preparation services could not afford to hire attorneys for simple documents... the state ultimately agreed that providing online document preparation services does not constitute the unauthorised practice of law."
On his Practice:
"I hold true to the basics of hard work, perseverance, passion, compassion and caring about your clients just as my father and father-in-law did in the 60's, 70's and 80's in the midst of their successful careers. We all believe the bottom line is it takes hard work and preparation before and during trial. I hope I can measure up to their standards."
