OCBA member Daniel S. Rodman, a partner at Snell & Wilmer's Orange County office, has accepted an invitation from the American Bar Foundation (ABF) Board of Directors to become a Fellow of the ABF.
Membership in The Fellows is limited to one percent of the lawyers licensed to practice in the U.S. and its territories and to a limited number of lawyers in jurisdictions outside the U.S. Rodman joins a number of Snell & Wilmer attorneys across the firm who became ABF Fellows last year and many others who have previously been accepted.
The Fellows of the ABF is a global honorary organization of attorneys, judges and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of their communities. The ABF’s mission is to serve the legal profession, the public, and the academy through empirical research, publications and programs that advance justice and the understanding of law and its impact on society.
Rodman serves as co-chair of the Firm's Product Liability Litigation group. He is a trial lawyer focused on defending motor vehicle manufacturers and suppliers against claims of wrongful death or catastrophic injury, and defending companies in complex commercial and employment litigation in California and Nevada.
Active in several bar organizations, Rodman is currently a member of the ABF. He has been a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers since 2017 and he is a current member of the Defense Research Institute.
He received his J.D. from Loyola Law School and his B.S. from University of Southern California.
