About

Daniel’s work as an Associate Legal Solutions Architect means giving clients the tech-enabled legal solutions they need to simplify their daily work. For close to a decade he has developed technology solutions for clients, honing his skills at law firms, Apple, and Chicago-Kent’s Center for Access to Justice & Technology.

With a double major B.A. in economics and political science, a J.D. with a focus on knowledge management, and experience in the worlds of law and technology, Daniel’s cross-discipline pedigree allows him to assemble the pieces of his clients’ legal and business puzzles.

Background

Daniel began his legal career in Baker & McKenzie’s Bogota office, where he assisted the corporate transactions and banking & finance groups in traditional legal work, while also establishing that office's new knowledge management system for corporate transactions. He then joined Drinker, Biddle & Reath for a year as a Legal Project Manager.

During law school, Daniel worked for the Center for Access to Justice & Technology where he assisted in the development and release of A2J 5.0, a legal document automation software designed to help low-income people access the justice system.

Outside the office, Daniel enjoys travel, photography, cooking, finding new restaurants, playing Frisbee at the park, and attending concerts, especially jazz. A member of the Illinois Bar, English and “tech” are not the only languages Daniel speaks — he is fluent in Spanish as well.

“Helping clients use software and technology to provide better value to their organizations is what gets me up in the morning.”
