Dan Hancock

I’m an attorney in Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, who practices in health care, regulatory matters and government investigations, and business litigation, with a smattering of intellectual property and tech law. I’m building expertise in e-discovery technology and techniques. I’m also a runner, a collector, and an unashamed geek who was once internet-famous for a website about action figures.

More About Me

My firm Fultz Maddox Dickens is a scrappy Louisville-based outfit whose official branding includes the description "a niche tribe of midwestern tryhards." If you need it done right, quickly, and for a lot less money than BigLaw, we're the firm for you.

I joined FMD as an associate in 2013, after a judicial clerkship for United States District Court Chief Judge Jennifer B. Coffman of the Eastern and Western Districts of Kentucky. In 2016, I left the firm to serve as an Assistant United States Attorney with the Eastern District of Kentucky, where I primarily prosecuted civil health care fraud.  I rejoined the firm in late 2017 with a much broader knowledge of what all  is involved with "big misunderstandings" with Uncle Sam.


I got my J.D. from the University of Kentucky College of Law in 2011, magna cum laude. Many years before that, in 2000, I got a dual B.A. in English and Classics from the University of Kentucky. From the late ‘90s to 2008, I made my living designing websites and building database solutions.


Bar Admissions

I'm licensed and admitted in Kentucky (2011) and admitted to the United States courts of the Eastern District of Kentucky, the Western District of Kentucky, the Southern District of Indiana, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.


I'm a member of the Kentucky Bar Association, the Louisville Bar Association, and the Kentucky chapter of the Federal Bar Association. I'm also a member of the American Health Lawyers Association and the International Legal Technology Association.
