Peter W. Daniel

Associate since 2014
San Mateo, California

Peter Daniel has been practicing law since 1996, focusing primarily on civil litigation and Family Law matters. Peter has represented clients in complex Family Law matters including property division, support, child custody and visitation, paternity, and domestic violence. His civil litigation experience gives him more leverage in Family Law matters which often involve legal issues that cross over into other legal areas.

Because some matters call for negotiation and settlement and some require an aggressive attitude pushing forward through trial, Peter’s litigation style is adaptable to the situation at hand, depending on the goals and resources of the client.

Peter, who joined Viola Law Firm in 2014, is a tireless advocate highly effective in all courtroom situations and always keeps an eye on his client’s bottom line.
