Philosophy & Background


Personal Experiences Drive Passion

At age 17, Dan Ramsdell and his mother were both injured in a vehicular accident with a negligent truck driver. Dan is an understanding, caring, and compassionate representative for individuals and families harmed in crashes involving semi trucks.

Today, Mr. Ramsdell is a frequent CLE speaker for state and national trial lawyer associations on the subject of interstate trucking litigation, and is considered by his peers to be one of the most knowledgeable lawyers in America on the topic. 

Dan takes this expertise and compassion into every case he accepts, advocating for his clients with experience and conviction.  

A Lifelong Leader

Dan was the President of his senior class at Parkview High School in Springfield, Mo., and was the recipient of the Missouri Curators Award for high scholastic achievement, graduating in 1968. Dan graduated from Southwest Missouri State University in December of 1971, a semester early, with a B.S. degree in Marketing. While in college, Dan was an invited member of Pi Omega Pi, the Scholastic Honor Society for Business majors. 

Dan is proud to be a former law student at the University of Arkansas  School of Law in Fayetteville, Ark. Dan was appointed by the Dean of the law school to serve as the Student Director of the Texarkana Prison Project, which was a law firm of law students who were permitted, by special rule, to actually practice law before graduation from law school. This law firm provided post conviction relief to indigent inmates in federal prison in the Texarkana Federal Prison. At the time, this was the largest law firm in Arkansas.

Dan was elected Vice President of the Student Bar Association, and while in law school, was the State Director of the University of Arkansas Legal Research Bureau.

Dan brings to the table a strong background in leadership and advocacy.
