Daniel completed his articles in 2013 under the mentorship of MacGillivray Law’s founding partner, Jamie MacGillivray. During this time he developed a passion for helping accident victims and people wrongfully denied disability benefits.
Daniel moved on to practice at another local firm and in several other areas of law, including estate litigation and family law. The core of his legal practice was always advocating for ordinary people who are going through difficult, and sometimes life-changing experiences. Daniel takes a very personal approach to his practice and is focused on client communication.
Since 2017, Daniel has almost exclusively practiced injury and insurance law. In 2018, Daniel joined the education committee of the Atlantic Provinces Trial Lawyers Association and was awarded the Gary J. Bigg Memorial Scholarship through the American Association of Justice. This award is given to a young lawyer who displays an aptitude for trial advocacy and commitment to protecting and advancing the interests of the disadvantaged.
In October 2021, Daniel was excited to return to MacGillivray Law. He appreciates how the firm values their clients, cares about their unique stories, and are willing to do what it takes to give them access to justice when going up against large insurance companies.
Daniel likes to spend his free time with his wife, Claire, and their cat, Calvin. If it’s summer, you’ll likely catch him near the ocean.
