When Dan Sparks was 11 years old, his father took him to the local jail and showed him people behind bars. He vividly remembers the deplorable conditions and the feeling that he never wanted to go to jail again. Then, he became curious about why the men were in jail. He wanted to know what had led them to that place and about the laws that put them there.

Dan remains curious about the law in his current practice at Christian & Small. He continues to gain first-hand experience and often puts himself in his client’s shoes, knowing that legal issues are as important to clients at midnight as they are during business hours. Dan represents lenders, corporations and individuals in all aspects of commercial litigation, bankruptcy, workouts, asset recovery and foreclosure matters.
