Throughout his legal career he has specialized in human rights and civil rights advocacy, working on behalf of migrant laborers, victims of discrimination, refugees, and survivors of human trafficking. Before returning to his hometown of Pittsburgh, Daniel spent several years as an international human rights lawyer, serving as the Legal Services Director of Asylum Access, Ecuador and consulting for the International Organization for Migration in Zimbabwe. Prior to law school, Daniel spent two years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Guatemala.

In law school, Daniel was an active member of various organizations promoting workers’ rights and social justice. His activities included training law school “first responders” to protect employees’ rights during federal immigration workplace raids, and co-authoring Georgetown Human Rights Action’s fact-finding report on gang violence and immigration policy in the U.S. and Guatemala. He also made Dean’s List each year of law school, and was selected for the Order of the Coif (awarded to top 10% of Georgetown’s graduating class).
Daniel enjoys traveling, riding his bicycle around Pittsburgh’s hills and trails, cooking, and chasing after his two young boys.
