Dan Osher is a counsel in the Litigation practice group. He represents voters, nonprofit organizations, and political committees in constitutional and Voting Rights Act challenges to voting laws and districting plans. He has litigated at all levels of federal and state courts and has extensive trial and deposition experience. Among his most recent matters, Dan played a significant role in obtaining and defending on appeal an injunction forcing the Georgia Secretary of State to permit counties to hold early voting for the 2022 senate run-off on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, which resulted in 70,000 voters casting their ballots that day.


Prior to ELG, Dan played a significant role in litigation that ultimately resulted in Mississippi removing constitutional provisions originally enacted to prevent minority voters from electing their preferred candidates in statewide elections. During the 2020 election cycle, Dan defended against multiple efforts to overturn the presidential election and separately litigated several cases seeking to expand voters’ access to the ballot. He also represented several members of Congress in successfully defeating challenges to their electoral victories. 


Dan served as a law clerk to the Hon. Gonzalo P. Curiel of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, the Hon. Ronald M. Gould of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the Hon. Michael P. Shea of the U.S. District Court for the District of Connecticut. He graduated magna cum laude from the University of Michigan Law School in 2015 and cum laude from Northwestern University in 2010.
