Thereafter he shifted his practice and worked as a defense attorney representing insurance companies and large corporations against personal injury and workers’ compensation lawsuits.  It is as a direct result of his varied experience both as a transactional attorney and as a litigator the Brian brings a very well-rounded perspective to each case.

He began assisting clients through The Daniel Law Firm in late 2006, and currently continues to help individuals and small businesses deal with a variety of legal issues.

Locally, The Daniel Law Firm is a member of the Better Business Bureau (with an A+ rating) and Brian is an active member of the Austin Bar Association and the Texas Bar Association.

In addition to practicing law, Brian enjoys spending most of his free time with his wife of fourteen years and their three young daughters actively participating in their church and local community.  Individually, Brian is an avid cyclist and triathlete (a two-time Ironman Finisher) and he applies the same degree of tenacity and commitment necessary for personal success in those endeavors to the representation of his clients.
