Daniel Herr began helping fractional owners through a friend’s parents who had two fractional shares. After finding substantial billing errors and erroneous charges, Dan secured a sizable refund for the parents and earned the trust of his first two clients. Dan quickly expanded his fractional consultancy and helped other owners collect refunds and guided them during purchase, ownership, and sale. Dan realized that he could do even more for his clients by representing them during the initial drafting of the contracts, so he became an attorney and morphed his fractional consultancy into FractionalLaw.
Dan received a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers Newark Law School. He graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with a degree in Economics.
FractionalLaw’s clients, which range from individuals to public companies, benefit from Dan’s prior experience as an aviation insurance underwriter, as a vice president of an aircraft management company, and as an Airline Transport Pilot flying airplanes for fractional, charter, corporate, and freight operations.
When Dan is not busy assisting clients, he is likely at the airport: flying or cleaning his King Air 350. Dan holds type ratings for Cessna Citation 500 series aircraft, for the Fairchild Metro/Merlin, and for the King Air 300 series. Dan has logged over 7,000 flight hours.
Outside of aviation, Dan’s hobbies include tinkering with antique tractors at the family farm or making ice cream using a churn powered by a 1907 hit-and-miss engine. Dan is a fourth generation ice cream maker and uses a recipe handed down from the late Hon. H.B. Herr – who started the family tradition in order to use the excess ice from his ice-farm.
Dan lives in New Jersey with his wife and two children. He holds a Commercial Driver’s License, Class A (tractor-trailer), with HazMat and Tanker endorsements; and is an experienced excavator specializing in septic systems and driveways. He is a trustee of the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Coalition, a member of the Lawyer-Pilot Bar Association and the National Business Aviation Association, and a former director of the Prospect Hill Cemetery.
