Details

Dan Roth aggressively advocates for clients in California courts and universities in criminal defense, school discipline, and restraining order matters in the Bay Area and beyond.  He has an extensive record of success in high-stakes criminal and disciplinary matters in state, federal, and disciplinary matters.

Dan also represents victims and witnesses, who often need their own counsel to navigate the legal system.  He represented three former Theranos executives, including a former lab director who testified in U.S. v. Holmes, and represented five witnesses in U.S. v. FedEx, one of the largest federal grand jury investigations in American history.

Before founding the Law Office of Dan Roth in 2012, Dan worked as an associate with Arguedas, Cassman, Headley & Goldman.  He brings to his criminal defense practice prior experience as a litigator and advisor for San Francisco’s indigent through the Bar Association of San Francisco’s Federal Pro Bono Project and Eviction Defense Collaborative; Ohio’s Secretary of State, Attorney General, and Governor; and national non-profit organizations Alliance For Justice and Citizens for Responsibility & Ethics in Washington (CREW).

In 2013 Dan coauthored an article entitled “#Cut50: The Time is Now,” with Van Jones and Jessica Jackson, encouraging fellow California criminal defense attorneys to join efforts to significantly reduce the U.S. prison population, published in the quarterly journal FORUM.

Dan serves on the Board of Directors of the American Constitution Society’s Bay Area Lawyer Chapter, which he served as Chair from 2011 – 2014, and on the Advisory Board of Live Free USA, an organization dedicated to ending gun violence and mass incarceration. From 2018 - 2023 he served on the Board of the Golden Gate Bird Alliance (formerly Audubon), where he chaired the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee.  Dan is a founding member of the artist and activist collective Blackout for Human Rights, which produces the annual MLK Now gathering at Harlem’s Riverside Church, and was an associate producer of the documentary The Power of Two.
