A former Philadelphia Assistant District Attorney, Daniel is a veteran trial lawyer who focuses his current practice on representing private and public sector employers in state and federal courts against allegations of discrimination based on race, gender, age, disability, and religion, as well as charges of harassment, hostile work environment, and retaliation. Daniel’s practice also focuses on § 1983 civil rights litigation for government entities and he regularly litigates FELA claims (injuries to railroad workers). Daniel has tried multiple cases to verdict in federal and state courts.

Daniel litigates complex matters for individuals and businesses involving restrictive clauses in employment contracts, trade secrets, and non-competition and confidentiality agreements, as well as violations of the Racketeer Influence and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
