Daniel’s legal career began during law school when he represented indigent clients in divorce and matrimonial proceedings through his law school’s Family Law Clinic. Prior to becoming a founding member of Smith & Williams Law Firm, LLC, Daniel clerked for a prestigious insurance defense firm located in Monmouth County, New Jersey. After serving several months as a clerk, Daniel was then hired as a full trial lawyer responsible for handling all aspects of defense litigation, including dealing closely with the insurance company, conducting discovery on their behalf, settling cases, and trying cases in court before a judge and a jury. The knowledge, insight, and experience Daniel gained while representing personal injury defendants gave him the unparalleled advantage of understanding how insurance companies operate, negotiate, and defend cases. He now utilizes that knowledge to his client’s advantage on a daily basis in dealing with the defense insurance companies and the attorneys they hire to represent their insureds. Daniel currently devotes 100% of his career to representing the interests of those individuals who have been harmed as result of the negligence of individuals and corporations. He is an extremely experienced trial attorney who has successfully tried cases in Courthouses throughout the State.
