A native of Linden, Texas, Daniel spent most of his young life in the Lone Star State. He taught English in Monterrey, Mexico upon completion of his undergraduate studies. While teaching in Mexico, he became intensely interested in immigration law, since a large number of his students were young professionals looking to improve their English-speaking abilities in order to advance their careers with American companies. He worked at the Appellate Division of the Second Circuit Public Defender’s Office while earning his law degree. In addition, he worked as a clerk for the City Attorney’s Office in the City of Tallahassee. While clerking, he was chosen after a competitive process to be a research assistant to Wayne Logan, a distinguished criminal procedure scholar.
In 2012, Daniel passed the Florida Bar and started working for the Sixth Judicial Circuit of Florida as a staff attorney. While he was there, he drafted opinions and orders under the direction of Circuit Court Judges and researched complex legal issues. He began working as an associate attorney with a private firm focused entirely on immigration law. Two years after working as an associate, he became a solo practitioner. He has worked with a wide variety of clients, ranging from individual asylum seekers to large, multi-national corporations.
Daniel moved back home to East Texas in 2017, joining Flowers Davis, PLLC. He spends his time between Tyler, Longview, Shreveport, and Linden. In his free time, he enjoys traveling, watching the Florida State Seminoles and Dallas Cowboys, reading, geography, history, fishing, duck hunting, being outdoors, and spending time with his wife Andréia and their families. Daniel and his wife have personally been through the immigration process, as she is a native of São Paulo, Brazil.
Daniel is proficient in Spanish.
