He has worked on a wide range of plaintiff-side civil litigation matters including real property title issues and insurance claims, personal injuries and wrongful deaths, creditor collections, breaches of contract, embezzlement, and breaches of fiduciary duty. In addition, Daniel has handled the organization of small businesses and LLCs, environmental remediation of real property, and various matters in probate.
