About Me

Daniel K. Printz, Esq., is Adjunct Faculty at the University of San Diego (Paralegal Program), where he teaches "Estates, Wills and Trusts."   A San Diego native since 1972, Mr. Printz attended Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where he graduated in the top fifth of his law school class, with several honors, and was a member of Law Review and Moot Court Board.   After working in-house for a public, international automotive technology firm and at top-rated Northern California business law firms, he returned to San Diego in 2004 to establish his own practice.


The Law Office of Daniel K. Printz provides estate planning, probate and trust administration, and business law services.   By keeping his firm small, he is able to personally draft every document that's presented to a client or counsel.   He takes the time to understand each client so he can provide them personalized service, and uses state-of-the-art tools and drafting systems to ensure he is providing world-class legal assistance quickly and efficiently.  


Daniel's experience teaching pays off for each client, as he takes the time to make sure they are fully informed about their options with regard to their lives, estates, and businesses.   His highest priority is affording people the peace of mind that comes with making informed decisions.
