My friend of many years Daniel Sullivan died of lung cancer the morning of July 1, 2012 in Seattle. He was 86 years old.
Dan was a plaintiff's trial lawyer. He was the Washington State Trial Lawyers Association president in 1974-75, WSTLA Trial Lawyer of the Year winner in 1984 andrecipient of the then-WSTLA Lifetime Achievement Award in 2004.
Dan was my mentor and my friend.It was Dan I turned to for professional help. We associated on many cases and worked together many times. We enjoyed each others company and laughed a lot. Dan had that great Irish sense of humor. He was a great trial lawyer with an enormous heart and a high sense of ethics. It was impossible not to like him and I learned to love him like a brother. I will miss him, but the good he did will live on. An Irish blessing on you Dan.
