Daniel is an associate at Woods Rogers Vandeventer Black (WRVB) and serves an array of clients in both business transactional and litigation matters as part of the firm’s Corporate & Business Transactions practice group.
Daniel has assisted in coordinated closings of multimillion-dollar real estate sales and acquisitions of multi-family residential, industrial, and office building properties. He also structures business formation, financing, and equity raises necessary for clients to facilitate these real estate purchases.
Daniel regularly also assists clients with business formation and governance matters outside of the realm of real estate, including the drafting and negotiating of organizational documents and transfer documentation for stock and membership interests.
Daniel has also assisted clients in a range of business litigation matters, including disputes among business owners, derivative suits, and employment matters. His experience in both business transactional matters and litigation matters, as an attorney and previously as a law clerk to local circuit court judges, gives him a unique perspective in his approach to both fields of practice. This varied experience helps him both identify and evaluate risk in negotiating transactions and interpreting agreements subject to litigation.
Daniel joined the firm after completing the firm’s summer associate program in the summer of 2018.
Daniel has had the opportunity to work with numerous judges both during and after law school. Upon graduating, Daniel served as the judicial law clerk for Judges Steven C. Frucci, Stephen C. Mahan, and H. Thomas Padrick of the Virginia Beach Circuit Court. Through this clerkship, Daniel gained extensive Virginia civil litigation experience in a range of fields. During law school, he was a judicial intern for federal Judge Mark S. Davis of the Eastern District of Virginia and for David W. Lannetti of the Norfolk Circuit Court.
Daniel received his J.D. from Regent University School of Law, graduating first in his class. During law school, he served as the Lead Managing Editor of the Regent University Law Review. Prior to law school, he earned his B.A. in Government (summa cum laude) from Regent University.
Daniel has been a life-long resident of Virginia Beach and is passionate about serving the Hampton Roads community. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, cooking, reading about cooking, and spending time with his wife and young son Remy.
