Daniel Weiner is a US and UK licensed attorney, and the founder of The Law Office of Daniel R. Weiner. He has worked at some of the world’s top law firms for over ten years, mostly in London, during which time he provided legal counsel to renowned clients which included Fortune 500 companies. Dan is determined to use his skills to serve a broader cross-section of the population, instead of just banks and large companies. He established this law firm because of his passion for equality, fairness, and justice. Throughout his many years of work, he realized that many people didn’t have equal access to quality legal services. He decided to bridge the gap between the modern legal needs of California residents and traditional law firms that follow an outdated service model with extremely high hourly rates and fees.
Most people cannot afford to pay thousands of dollars in legal fees, so we decided to do something about it. Our approach is different. We offer technologically advanced and convenient solutions that empower our clients in many ways. Our firm is virtual, convenient, affordable, and caring. We bring you big firm experience at a fraction of the price.
We believe that everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic status, should have equal access to quality legal services. We believe in service and always putting the needs of our clients first. We believe in standing up for justice and what is right. We believe in pushing the boundaries of tradition and in finding innovative ways to solve the legal problems of the modern world. We believe in fostering collaboration, partnership, and community.

Before setting up this firm, Dan advised on groundbreaking cryptocurrency transactions. In particular, he was focused on how the emerging world of cryptocurrency should be regulated. Dan's work in this area was published in a major international publication in 2018. Dan sees the establishment of this law firm as a natural extension of his work in the financial regulatory field, which included consumer protection issues.
Dan has also completed pro bono training with the DC Volunteer Lawyers Project, which is dedicated to providing free divorce and child custody representation to victims of domestic violence. Also on the pro bono front, Dan was part of a team that represented Holocaust survivors in their legal action against Generali, an insurance company that denied their claim on the basis that relevant records had been destroyed by the Nazis.
Born and raised in London, Dan moved to the States in 2017. Dan and his American wife have two young children: two year old Aiden and 8 month old Emma. In his free time, Dan enjoys playing tennis, attending political events, binge watching Netflix, teaching Aiden how to play soccer and wondering whether his kids will speak with a British or American accent.
