Daniel W. Cote, Esq.

Of Counsel

Dan has dedicated his entire legal career to helping injured people. When you speak with Dann for even a few minutes, it’s impossible to ignore his energy. His enthusiasm comes both from his roles as Attorney, father and partner at Earner & Weaver, and, more importantly, his passion for people. When it comes to his clients, he is a lawyer whose sole focus is on fighting for his client’s rights. Dan cannot tolerate a world where working men and women are not treated fairly by the legal system. Dan and the Earner & Weaver team believe in better. They work tirelessly to hold wrongdoers accountable and help their clients overcome troubles.

Dan was taught the importance of the right way to earn respect at a young age by his family. Throughout his life, he’s seen firsthand how people in power take advantage of honest, hard working men and women. Dan is thankful the skills his education and experience have helped develop. He believes he is obligated to use these skills to fight for those of us who are stepped on and bullied. This uncompromising integrity and commitment to clients has allowed him to help hundreds of Massachusetts injury victims. Practicing law is more than just verdicts and settlements— Dan fights for true change. He works to make sure that his clients’ rights — and the rights of others — are protected for years to come.

In each cases he handles, Dan demonstrates a commitment to pursuing justice for us all. For example, he once represented an injured carpenter who was denied workers’ compensation benefits on the grounds that he was a sub-contractor and not an employee of the company. The carpenter initially lost his case. Dan could not imagine giving up on his client. He and his team faced the challenge by appealing to the highest court in the state, where he won. Dan’s efforts not only got the Carpenter the benefits he needed to care for his family, but also expanded the coverage of the workers’ compensation law to protect more of men and women who work in Massachusetts.
