Daniel J. Condren
Associate

Dan Condren assists public and private entities in securing and protecting reliable access to water resources. His legal practice with Somach client teams includes work in and out of Colorado’s water court, along with regional federal water work, with an emphasis on cases involving complex electronic discovery and trial preparation.

In law school, Dan earned dual certificates in American Indian Law; and, Energy, Environment, and Natural Resources Law. His passion for water resources law took him to Stanford University for its Water in the West Program, where he served as a research assistant. Dan also spent time as a judicial intern at the Division Five Water Court in Glenwood Springs, Colorado. Prior to law school, Dan gained vital experience as a litigation paralegal for an international firm with offices in Denver.

Dan’s affinity for all things water and nature shaped his early education years, as he spent a semester in Wyoming at the National Outdoor Leadership School and was a collegiate Division III diver for Colorado College. Unsurprisingly, Dan’s ongoing interests include skiing, mountain biking, camping, and NHL hockey, to name a few.
