Attorney Profile

Attorney Dan Norwood is the founder and owner of the Working Boomer Advocate law firm in Memphis, Tennessee. A top-rated lawyer with more than 38 years of legal experience, Mr. Norwood focuses his practice exclusively on employment law. Representing the rights and entitlements of individual employee claimants as well as groups of employees across the state, Mr. Norwood has achieved notable success advocating on behalf of aggrieved workers who suffered a violation of their basic rights.

Early in his legal career, Mr. Norwood worked at a prominent labor law practice, where he defended employers against employment law claims. Since establishing his own law firm in 1980, he has shifted his focus to plaintiff employee representation. Furthermore, he has become one of the region's leading advocates for those dealing with legal challenges involving discrimination — particularly age discrimination — harassment, wage and hour disputes, medical leave matters, contract issues, non-compete agreements and severance pay, and other areas.

Recognized for his professionalism and service, Mr. Norwood was the feature of a 1987 cover story in Memphis Magazine, earning the moniker "Giant Killer" for his success at taking on some of the largest employers in the area. He also received the Liberty Through Justice Award from the Memphis and Shelby County Young Lawyers Associations as well as consistent recognition from The Best Lawyers in America.

A graduate of the American University School of International Service, Mr. Norwood obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of Memphis's Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law in 1977. He is an active member of the National Employment Lawyers Association, the Memphis Bar Association's Employment and Labor Section, and the Tennessee Bar Association.
