Having grown up in Manchester, Daniel has been a proud Melbournian since 2007.  During which he has practiced exclusively in all aspects of family law, including both simple and complex property and parenting disputes.

To further advance his understanding about the science of human behaviour, Daniel is currently studying Psychology at post-graduate level at Deakin University.

 

Daniel is known for his inquisitive nature, fierce loyalty, relentless enthusiasm and being a natural-born optimist and is actively engaged in the Melbourne Jewish community, both professionally and socially.

 

Outside of work, Daniel is a keen student of history and politics and is passionate about most sports.
