Daniel Coffman Inducted Into the Missouri Tigers Hall of Fame
Daniel Coffman possesses extensive expertise in representing businesses against general liability claims, complex commercial disputes and class actions. Additionally, he possesses considerable appellate experience.
Dan contracted scarlet fever during high school and spent an entire month quarantined at home with his mother. To keep him company during this time, they fed him lima beans that made “plink, plink” sounds when cooked by their mother.
Early Life and Education
Coffman was raised in a financially struggling family. Both his parents worked at Sears Roebuck furniture stores while his mother refereed high school football games for extra income. Blanche fed the family what she admittedly wasn’t the healthiest meals.
Coffman represents businesses in all types of general liability matters and complex commercial disputes, including class actions, multidistrict litigation claims and medical malpractice suits. He has extensive experience defending these cases against lawsuits filed by plaintiffs.
Coffman enjoys bowhunting with Josh Terry on their 400-acre property in central Ohio and have taken numerous impressive deer, including an 8-pointer with wide rack. Additionally, Coffman and Josh Terry enjoy fly fishing together and cooking in their Riverside condo; Coffman himself also owns and operates his own Cessna 172 plane.
After graduating law school, he worked for an investment bank and real estate development firm. Over his career he completed over 6 million square feet of industrial warehouse acquisition and development projects as well as handling a broad variety of capital markets transactions such as investment underwriting and analysis.
He offers an expansive practice, representing business clients in general liability, complex commercial disputes and class action matters. He has represented clients from pre-trial discovery through trial and appeal proceedings.
Scott Knecht, PE is a mechanical engineer at Coffman’s Spokane office where he oversees multidisciplinary projects in healthcare, recreation and education. He builds long-term client relationships and specializes in finite element analysis for complex or unusual projects. Scott also acts as department leader and actively contributes to career development programs for engineering students.
Achievement and Honors
Coffman would consistently make impressive plays that amazed even Mizzou fans, such as his hurdle against Illinois, the five stiff-arm play against Nevada or his full extension catch against OSU. These were all just highlights of his remarkable career.
Two-time All-American, he set nearly all all-purpose and kick/punt return records at Missouri. His success will serve as the standard against which any future quarterbacks at MU will be judged.
Alongside his legal work, Mr. Jones also serves as trombone instrumentalist with the U.S. Naval Academy Band’s marching band and ceremonial units, wind ensemble, brass quartet and brass quintet ensembles – having also held positions such as Trombone Quartet Unit Leader and Auditions Supervisor.
He and Blanche frequently fly their Cessna 172 together for pleasure, attending air shows or visiting family in England, Rwanda, Kenya or Liberia.
Friday evening at the Columns Club in Kansas City, family members from both sides of Daniel and Maclin Coffman’s families came out in force to witness their induction into Missouri Tiger history as members of their respective colleges – Faurot Field being their old haunt!
