Dan Street

Dallas Car Wreck Lawyer

Dan Street was born in 1952 in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. He graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1974 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and English.

In his first year of college, Dan was the only freshman selected for the Varsity Debate Team at USM. He went on to graduate from the University of Mississippi School of Law with a Juris Doctorate in 1976. While in law school he served as Vice-Chancellor of Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity.

Dan moved to Texas immediately upon graduation from law school and began work as Director of Development of First Baptist Church of Dallas, serving as the first attorney on the staff of Dr. W. A. Criswell. In 1978, Dan was sworn in as a Dallas County Assistant District Attorney under legendary D. A. Henry Wade, where he prosecuted felonies and misdemeanors committed by juveniles and also handled child-welfare cases, including abuse and neglect of children. In 1979, Dan was selected over 34 other applicants (all much older than he) to serve as the very first Associate Judge in all of Texas, presiding in the 304th and 305th District Courts of Dallas County. At the age of 27, he was also the youngest judge ever in Texas. During his four-year tenure, Dan presided over more than 10,000 hearings and trials.

In 1982, Dan was hired as an associate for a Dallas personal injury law firm. Within six months he was made a Partner in the firm. Thereafter, Dan went into independent practice with the STREET LAW FIRM, where he established his remarkable record of 99.9% success in winning cases. Dan is a longtime member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and is also a member of the American Association for Justice. He is licensed to practice law in all Texas courts and in the Federal District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Texas. Dan has been chosen as an Outstanding Young Man in America and inducted into Who's Who Among Outstanding Americans. He is also an active member of Prestonwood Baptist Church.

His two sons are both medical doctors (one is an Anesthesiologist and the other a Plastic Surgeon), one daughter is in graduate nursing school, and the other daughter is an interior designer for a prominent family corporation.

When not fighting insurance companies, Dan enjoys sailing the Caribbean, where he has sailed to more than 60 islands and spent a total of over a year on the sea.
