Being a seasoned traveler doesn't dampen Dan's enthusiasm for local events and culture. Always up for an adventure, his wife Amy says “With Dan, you kind of have to just go with it.”

Dan's practice focuses on commercial real estate law, including the acquisition, disposition and development of shopping centers, office buildings, medical office buildings and schools, the negotiation of office, warehouse, retail, restaurant, medical and other leases, and bank financing, as well as general corporate law. He routinely advises REITs, hospitals, family offices, developers, nonprofits and high net worth individuals in complex real estate transactions.

In 2005, 2009 - 2013 and 2015 - 2017, Dan was selected as a "Rising Star" by Ohio Super Lawyer Magazine for his work in Real Estate Law. Based on the grading and comments of his peers, Dan is recognized with an AV Rating, the highest rating given to lawyers by Martindale-Hubbell. Dan has also been selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America for his work in Real Estate Law, including being named Cincinnati Real Estate Lawyer of the Year for 2022.

Dan has a strong commitment to client service. Dan makes it his highest priority to respond to all clients promptly, to understand his clients’ goals and pay attention to non-legal issues that may affect his clients’ decisions and to treat everyone with whom he interacts with respect.

Dan was born in Islamabad, Pakistan, but now resides in Deerfield Township with his wife Amy and two daughters. They enjoy traveling, trying new recipes, and exploring local breweries.

Outside The Office

Dan Reitz was already a seasoned international traveler as a sixth grader.

Every summer, his family would pack up and travel somewhere, usually internationally. By the time he was ready for middle school, he’d visited nearly all 50 states and his passport had been stamped in Israel, Italy, England, Scotland, Germany, Mexico and many other countries.

Dan’s father graduated from the Athenaeum of Ohio, but decided the priesthood wasn’t for him. So he got his PhD in English literature instead, and eventually retired as assistant superintendent of the Three Rivers School District. His mother graduated from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College in Terre Haute, the nation’s oldest Catholic women’s college, then realized the sisterhood wasn’t the thing for her. They met in graduate school, married and moved to Argentina to teach. A few years later, they took a teaching assignment in Islamabad, Pakistan, where Dan was born.

He wasn’t quite a year old when the family moved back to Cincinnati and settled in Colerain Township. Dan frequented the local library. It was his “Cheers” – a place where everybody knew his name. In high school, he got a job there.

He met his wife, Amy, at Miami University. During his college years, his plan was to find work in the foreign service. But he decided to go to law school instead. He likes to write and solve problems, and he came to the conclusion that a career in the law was a more attainable way to ply those skills than by becoming a diplomat.

He describes himself as driven.  His idea of a vacation: If you’re not tired when you get back from wherever it is you’ve gone, you didn’t take a vacation. “I’m not going to fly to Albania and just sit around watching the sunset. You have to get out and explore. Vacations require energy.”

His daughters have inherited the family travel bug too, and carry well-stamped passports.  One of his greatest joys is planning their next adventure together.
