Daniel approaches each case by focusing on the specific needs of the individual client. Realizing that no two clients are the same and that each has different goals, he approaches every case from start to finish with a “client based strategy”. He prides himself on providing the highest possible representation in the most cost effective manner. His representation includes relationship building. He strives to keep clients fully informed of the most recent and smallest aspects of their case. His clients appear to appreciate that because many of his current clients are referrals from past clients.

In his free time, Daniel serves as the head wrestling coach for a local high school and is very active with the San Ramon Valley Rotary Club.
