Dane Bruun, a Corpus Christi native, joined Welder Leshin, LLP in September of 2007 to practice maritime law.

As a lifelong resident, Dane brings a familiarity with the area and its people to bear on the cases he handles. His goals as an attorney are to be responsive to his clients' needs and resolve issues in a manner that most closely meets his clients' circumstances, whether through negotiation, trial or an alternative form of dispute resolution.

He is married to Barbara Jane "Janie" Bruun and has one daughter. Dane enjoys golf, a good duck hunt, and sight casting to redfish with his fly rod.
