Daniel operates under two principles: dedication to the client and there is always a third option. Too often lawyers operate under a this or that dichotomy, so Daniel makes it his mission to break this mold and seek alternative, creative options for his clients. Whether he's playing a board game or practicing law, Daniel has always possessed an interest in rules. Today, as an attorney, Daniel uses his knowledge of the rules in order to put his clients in the best position possible. With a distaste for short cuts, Daniel dedicates himself to long hours of tedious investigation, searching for any history and connections that may benefit his clients' defense. Clients can expect excellent commitment from Daniel as he works hard to find innovative solutions and leaves no stone unturned in an effort to find the third option.
