Daniel attended the University of Texas School of Law and he was awarded the Fulbright & Jaworski Scholarship.

He also assisted in the investigation and prosecution of a Medicaid healthcare fraud case involving approximately $66 million in billing by a dental clinic and oversaw a bank fraud investigation involving a $1 million commercial property business loan.
