In 2015, Daniel started Naymark Law after practicing for over 5 years at Lax O'Sullivan Scott Lisus LLP (now Lax O'Sullivan Lisus Gottlieb LLP), a Bay Street litigation boutique frequently ranked among Canada's top litigation practices. Prior to that, Daniel clerked for the judges of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in Toronto and practiced at a large, full-service Bay Street firm.

Having worked with the best of the bench and the bar, Daniel realized a long-time personal ambition by establishing his own practice. In doing so, he follows an entrepreneurial path charted by many of the country's great advocates.

Daniel approaches the practice of law as a time-honoured profession, requiring of its members the ideals of integrity, service, skill and community engagement. He is the Vice-Chair and incoming Chair of the Young Advocates' Standing Committee, the division of The Advocates' Society devoted to advocates in their first 10 years of practice. He is an appointee to the Law Society of Ontario's Early Careers Roundtable. He volunteers regularly through Pro Bono Law Ontario, providing free advice and short-term representation through offices at Toronto courthouses. He serves as a mentor for law students at the University of Toronto. He acts as pro bono counsel to the AODA Alliance, a leading organization advocating for accessibility rights in Ontario.

Daniel holds a J.D. (2008) from the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law, where he served on the student government body and volunteered at the student-run legal aid clinic, and a B.A. (2004) in economics and philosophy from Huron College at Western University, where he was honoured for his contributions to the student legal community.
