Dana Wachs says that his father, who served as a practicing attorney well into his 90s, inspired him to also pursue a career in law. A lifelong Eau Claire resident, the younger Wachs has practiced law for the last 39 years. Wachs says he is invested in the lives of people here, especially those that are injured and need help navigating the legal system.
He shares that part of what makes him unique as a personal injury attorney is his preparation and focus.
“From the first day I meet with a client, all the way through trial, I am intensely focused on the details of the case,” Wachs said.
Wachs truly enjoys getting to know people, too. He said this resonates with his clients and others around him.
“I like people,” Wachs said. “I like meeting them, representing them and being there during their hard times,” he added.
Outside of the courtroom, Wachs is involved in the community. He has served on the Eau Claire City Counsel, served in the state legislature, and ran for governor on a Democratic ticket back in 2017. Currently, he is serving on the UW Board of Regents.
