Daniel grew up around Los Angeles courthouses, forging relationships early on with local attorneys and judges, and watched his father, esteemed criminal defense lawyer, Irv Rubin, argue on behalf of those who could not advocate for themselves.
As a law student, Daniel clerked with the District Attorney's office and, as part of Whittier Law School's Trial Advocacy Honors Board, he won the opportunity to plead mock-trial cases against some of the brightest law students in the state.
The skills Daniel developed arguing before judges in law school, translated directly to his career as a litigator. Since graduating, Daniel worked with individual, local business, and Fortune 1000 clients to recover millions of dollars in a variety of claims ranging from insurance bad faith to contract disputes to personal injury and fraud claims.
As an associate with Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP, Daniel draws from his experience as a civil litigator to zealously advocate for client’s accused of criminal offenses as well as those engaged in various civil disputes. To each courtroom, Daniel brings with him a familiarity of the legal tools and tactics used by some of the world’s largest law firms.
