With a string of successes over twenty-plus years, Daniel is as fierce as they come. His clients describe him as an approachable, easy going guy who relentlessly goes for the win.
Daniel is approachable because he can talk to anyone. You will feel comfortable in his presence because he will explain your options in plain English. Yet his opponents soon realize, particularly when their client is under oath, that this Clark Kent turns into Superman in the court room.
Daniel is an AV-rated trial lawyer with over twenty years of experience in commercial litigation, including cases involving business divorce, breach of contract, business torts, trade secrets, non-compete/non-solicitation covenants, and unfair competition. He has tried dozens of cases to courts and juries. He has particular expertise in electronic discovery. Daniel and his e-discovery team use the latest technology to efficiently gather, filter and use — to the client’s benefit — the electronic evidence important to the case, without getting mired in irrelevant details. And by doing the e-discovery in house, firm clients save thousands of dollars that would otherwise go to outside vendors.
As a trial lawyer, Daniel is nimble, aggressive, and always ready. He knows that the key to victory is mastering the facts and evidence so that no matter what happens, he can put the key piece of evidence on a screen within seconds. Smooth and seamless. No fumbling. No delays. You would be hard pressed to find someone as thorough and prepared as Daniel.
Daniel went from a top six law school to nine years at blue-chip law firms in Los Angeles. As a BigLaw commercial litigation partner, he represented fortune 100 corporations in massive cases with hundreds of thousands, sometimes millions, of documents.
He resigned that lucrative partnership because he wanted more jury trials, so he moved to Arizona to try serious felony cases for several years. Later, Daniel met Daryl Williams and realized that Daryl’s Chron was the holy grail of trial tools. They joined forces and Daniel has not looked back.
