About Dan Walkenhorst
I graduated from the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Law in 1993 in the top percent of my class. I worked for the Missouri Supreme Court during and following my graduation. Subsequent to that, I was employed as staff Counsel/Attorney for the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation in the Jefferson City office. I then was appointed by the late Governor Mel Carnahan, as Legal Advisor / Associate Law Judge for the Missouri Division of Workers’ Compensation Courts, where I served on the bench for several years. Following my tenure as Legal Advisor / Associate Law Judge I was employed by a large local law firm as their lead counsel on all of their Missouri Workers’ Compensation cases.
Within a short period of time I decided to open my own law firm. At this time, I feel as though I am one of the best in the workers compensation field, given all of my past experience and knowledge.
