Daniel regularly authors articles about the intersection between labor law and popular culture.

Daniel’s interest in labor law developed at age 11 when his beloved New York Yankees were unable to play in the 1994 World Series, which was canceled because of a work stoppage. Intrigued by collective bargaining from that point forward, Daniel studied at Cornell University’s School of Industrial and Labor Relations from which he earned a bachelor’s of science degree, with honors.

While attending Brooklyn Law School, Daniel was selected to the Order of the Barristers for his work with the Moot Court Honor Society. He was a finalist in the ABA National Labor and Employment Law Student Trial Advocacy Competition and received First Place in the ABA New York Regional Labor and Employment Law Student Trial Advocacy Competition. He also was a recipient of the CALI Excellence Award for the Future in both Labor Arbitration and Legal Writing. Daniel also served as an articles editor for the Brooklyn Journal of Corporate, Financial, and Commercial Law.

Prior to joining Jackson Lewis in 2008, Daniel interned with the Honorable Lois Bloom, Magistrate-Judge for the Eastern District of New York, the Criminal Division of the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York and Region 2 of the National Labor Relations Board.

A native of Tuckahoe, New York, along the eastern shore of the Bronx River, Daniel is a graduate of Anne Hutchinson School, Eastchester Middle School, and Eastchester High School. He resides in Westchester County with his wife and two children.
