About Dan L. Stanford

Attorney Biography

Dan Stanford is the senior member of Stanford, Ryan & Associates, A.P.C. with over 4 decades of jury trial experience.  Dan is a nationally-recognized expert in the prosecution of legal malpractice and malicious prosecution claims, and his practice is strictly limited to the representation of clients (plaintiffs) in such cases.  He was one of the original California Certified Specialists in legal malpractice law, and Dan now serves as a Commissioner on the CA State Bar Board of Legal Specialization.

However, he was trained during the first 16 years of his career on the defense side, first as a partner at Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, and then as a partner at Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro.  Dan graduated from law school in 1975 from the USC Law Center, and, prior to joining Luce, Forward, Hamilton & Scripps, served for two years as the law clerk to the Hon. Malcolm M. Lucas (Former Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court).

Dan has been consistently profiled in Southern California Super Lawyers, selected as one of the Best Lawyers in America, named by California Lawyer as one of the leading plaintiff’s legal malpractice attorneys in California, recognized in San Diego Magazine as the top legal malpractice firm in San Diego, and honored as one of the Top 25 Lawyers in San Diego. For three decades he has received the highest possible ranking of “AV Preeminent” from Martindale Hubbell. He regularly lectures and publishes on the subject of legal malpractice, has appeared on radio and television programs, and has been profiled or quoted in numerous newspapers and magazines, including Newsweek, Reader’s Digest, U.S.A. Today, San Diego Magazine and the California Lawyer.
