About Jim

Learn Jim’s areas of practice.

Credentials, Experience, Abilities:  I studied law at Harvard Law School and have spent a quarter-century practicing law, first at prominent law firms in Washington, D.C. and New York City, and then as a government lawyer for the U.S. Congress and two agencies. I've also taught at Georgetown University Law Center.

My specialties in immigration and family law are complemented by extensive experience in regulatory matters and in foreign and international law. I have practiced law overseas and am well-equipped to consider the special customs and requirements of your own cultural or religious community.

I am licensed to practice law in Maryland, New York and Israel. I speak Hebrew and have an Arabic-speaking paralegal as well.

Meaningful Consultations:  My consultations are thorough, because I won't give you legal advice on the fly. On the contrary, I need to understand all the relevant facts, and your personal priorities and goals -- and then do whatever research is necessary -- before presenting my best recommendations to you.

Effective Planning, Communication, and Advocacy:  After our initial consultation, I'll develop a plan to advance your goals. As we move forward, I'll set out your options and decision points at every stage. Throughout, I'll inform you promptly of significant developments, safeguard your privacy, and act as a zealous and conscientious advocate for your interests.

Improving Your Odds:  In many cases, outcomes depend partly on judges, government officials, or other third parties. I won't make false promises or guarantees. Instead, I'll inform you of your risks and possibilities, and work hard to give you the best chances of success, on your own terms.

Costs:  Some cases allow a fixed fee, but most are subject to hourly billing against a retainer fee paid in advance. The costs of legal representation are often determined by the actions of courts, agencies and adverse parties, and by your own changing circumstances over time. I'll work to limit your costs and avoid surprises by keeping you informed and helping you decide what to fight for.

Very knowledgeable and honest. I had an extremely urgent issue with immigration and had less than 30 days to find a solution. Within the hour I sat with him, he directed me on what to do and I found a solution within 9 days. Definitely hiring him. I cannot thank you enough because you saved my life. God bless you and your family

Immigration law - competency
He represented my husband and I in preparing change of status for immigration. We had no problem whatsoever with the initial submission of documents except the birth certificate which was resubmitted with an affidavit and attorney Jim cover letter and it was approved. Although we went for the interview without him but we were approved on the spot based on what Attorney Jim had asked us to send and with his cover letter. Attorney Jim surely knows what and what is required for change of status for immigrant.

Efficient and thoughtful adoption representation
Jim Daniel successfully guided us through the court process of independent adoption. He described all the necessary steps, was very quick replying to all of our follow up questions, prepared the documents for submission, advised on the best path and timing and represented us during our appearance before the Court, which lasted a total of 10 minutes thanks to Jim's foresight and preparation.

Amazing Adoption Attorney
Jim assisted myself and husband through an adoption. Jim was amazing, extremely prompt, responsive, sensible and precise. We began the process at the onset of the COVID19 pandemic and Jim was able to provide a substantial level of care and attention to our case during this difficult time. If you are seeking an attorney extremely knowledgeable in adoption, I would recommend Jim.

My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with how Jim handled our adjustment of status paperwork. He has a wealth of knowledge and pours all his insight into you so that you feel educated, empowered, and confident as you walk out his office. The file he prepared for us was meticulous and even during COVID or file has received timely updates and responses. I would highly recommend him as he’s a subject matter expert in field of family law and immigration.

Best Lawyer in Rockville.
Jim Daniel was extremely helpful and attentive with my adjustment of Status case. Before starting my AOS I did interview different lawyers that had experience with DACA recipients applying for AOS, and Jim was the only lawyer that was patient with all my questions. My package was so put together that my immigration officer had no question and just approved my case on the spot.I'll definitely be coming back for my naturalization application.
