Education

  

I grew up in Huntington Beach, California before attending and receiving my bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). As a NCAA intercollegiate baseball athlete, I was honored with 11 awards for academic achievement as a student athlete. The day after graduating UCLA, I moved down to San Diego and started law School at California Western School of Law, where I earned my Juris Doctor degree. After completing law school in 2 years (rather than the normal 3-year timeframe), I began studying for my master’s degree in Tax Law (LLM) at the University of San Diego School of Law.  Upon passing the California Bar Exam halfway through my LLM degree, I founded my own law firm the day after being sworn in in 2004.

I enjoy spending time with my son and family, as well as anything tech or cutting edge, snorkeling, golfing, snowboarding, starting businesses, giving back to the community, feeding the homeless, traveling, watching sports, Formula 1 and eating sushi.

It has been an absolute pleasure working with his firm. More specifically with Dan Kehr who was instrumental in assisting us in drafting a purchase and sale agreement (PSA) for an important project of ours. Dan was extremely proactive and professional in his assessment of what we were needing to get accomplished. He provided expert recommendations on key issues and verbiage within the PSA, his transparency and honesty throughout the whole process was exceptional, as well as, his acute attention to detail and quality of work provided. Dan went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help us with this massive undertaking which we are extremely thankful for. We look forward to using Dan and his firm again in the future. – JR Skala"

“My wife and I recently met with Dan Kehr regarding our estate. We had some concerns about our trust since it was completed over 10 years ago. Dan advised us about changes in the law as well as changes within our family that would require the trust to be updated. The items within the old trust were important to us then, but things certainly change in 10 years which required attention. Dan and his staff listened attentively to our new concerns, brought up issues that we had not considered and provided sound advice. I would highly recommend The Kehr Business Law Group for your estate planning needs. – Hal W.”

He and the entire staff made me feel confident that I was getting the best service possible. I would recommend Dan and Kehr Business Law to anyone who has assets they would like to protect. – Eve G.”
