Daniel Harrison joined Pogust Millrood, LLC in 2021.
Before joining PM in 2021, Dan served as a Deputy Attorney General in the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office. There, he gained extensive litigation and courtroom experience by defending New Jersey in personal injury and civil rights actions and, most recently, he concentrated his practice prosecuting polluters as a member of the office’s Environmental Enforcement & Environmental Justice section. In this role, Dan litigated multi-million dollar claims against corporations responsible for contamination at various sites across New Jersey, in both State and federal court. From 2018 to 2020, he specifically litigated several matters as a part of the New Jersey Attorney General’s natural resource damage, cost recovery, and environmental justice priority initiatives. Before his time as a DAG, Dan was very proud to serve in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, as paralegal while attending law school at night, and as an Assistant District Attorney in the office’s Trial Division upon graduation.
At PM, his practice areas include mass and toxic torts, class actions, and personal injury claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He represents those who were injured by negligence, consumer fraud, environmental toxins, defective medical devices, as well as harmful consumer products and pharmaceuticals. As an associate, Dan uses his experience to assist clients by providing insight throughout each phase of the litigation – including the pleadings, discovery, pre-trial, and trial stages.
Dan is originally from Jackson, New Jersey and he received his B.A. in Political Science from La Salle University in Philadelphia. While working full-time as a paralegal, he obtained his law degree from Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, DE, where he was recognized for excellence in his upper-level legal writing and trial advocacy courses. In addition to his studies and paralegal duties, Dan prosecuted felony and misdemeanors cases in Philadelphia Municipal Court as a certified legal intern for the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. He achieved Dean’s List at this time and participated in the Widener Law’s Intensive Trial Advocacy Program. When not practicing law, Dan likes to spend his time exploring Philadelphia with his fiancé Devon, and their two dogs, Loki and Ollie, tutoring Legal Studies and Criminal Justice students at Peirce College in Center City, and relaxing with his family and friends in Wildwood Crest every summer.
