Daniel Biles is a prominent Johnson County Lawyer. He lives in Shawnee and is a partner in Overland Park law firm Gates, Biles, Shields and Ryan. A 1978 graduate of Washburn University Law School he has litigated many high profile cases, including representing the State Board of Education in the Montoy case on School Funding.

His most recent political donation was in 2004: $250 to Dennis Moore, and his caseload is no stranger to controversy: his firm successfully defended the Kansas Expanded Lottery Act, with Biles as the attorney named on the brief.

GBSR partner, Thomas Kelly Ryan was recently named as a District Judge in the 10th Judicial District and Biles opposed the election of judges in Johnson County, signing the ‘No’ campaign’s list of endorsers.
