Daniel Tilleman

Daniel Tilleman is an associate in our Business Litigation practice group who works out of our Phoenix office. Daniel works on a variety of commercial litigation matters, including medical malpractice and land use litigation, as well as business formation and related trusts & estates issues.  Daniel’s previous experience involves externships at the United States Attorney’s Office and Federal District Court, and most recently, Daniel completed a judicial clerkship with Justice James Beene of the Arizona Supreme Court.

Daniel has always enjoyed the competitive nature and intellectual stimulation provided by the legal profession. After being personally affected by a case early in his adult life, Daniel now believes that it’s his life mission to serve as a knowledgeable advocate for his clients. He sincerely enjoys having the ability to help people, ease their fears, and comfort them during the stressful times often associated with complex business litigation.

As an Arizona State basketball champion, Daniel still plays a ton of hoops to stay in shape. Blessed with a wife and two girls, the family loves to hike and explore the environs of Idaho, including anything involving the water.
