About Daniel

Learn Daniel’s areas of practice.

Daniel Schneiderman was born and raised in Sacramento, California. After graduating from Jesuit High School he attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where he worked as an intern for the Santa Barbara District Attorney’s Office and Attorney General’s Office for the District of Columbia. He would later graduate magna cum laude with honors with a major in political science and a minor in history.

Mr. Schneiderman earned his Juris Doctor at the King Hall School of Law at the University of California, Davis. There he earned a position on King Hall’s Trial Practice Honors Board while working as a law clerk for the civil litigation law firm Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora LLP. He would later work as a certified legal assistant for the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office before being sworn in as a Deputy District Attorney in 2013.

As a DDA, Mr. Schneiderman prosecuted criminal cases to jury trial while managing a rotating caseload of over 50 misdemeanor complaints. He eventually returned to Dreyer Babich Buccola Wood Campora LLP as an attorney, where he maintained and litigated 60 to 80 cases at a time as both 1st and 2nd chair in California state and federal courts. These cases included numerous complex, high-stakes civil cases, several of which resulted in six to eight figure trial verdicts, arbitration awards, and settlements. Mr. Schneiderman continues to grow his practice, using his wealth of litigation and trial experience to represent and advise plaintiffs who have been wronged in personal injury, real estate, and business disputes through mediation, arbitration or trial in both state and federal court.

For his work, Mr. Schneiderman has been rated by Super Lawyers magazine as being in the top 2.5% of attorneys under 40 years old, receiving the Rising Stars Award for his performance in civil litigation in 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019. Mr. Schneiderman has and continues to work towards providing his clients with an open and transparent attorney-client relationship, an effort that has earned him a “5 out of 5” star average client review and rating of "10/10" on the attorney review website .

Life Saving Relief
I am so relieved to have found Mr. Schneiderman. His professionalism, expertise and drive to seek justice and proper restitution is unmatched. The amount of focus and hard work he is able to do in a short amount of time is life saving. I couldn’t be happier with the results he was able to achieve. He is very highly recommended and has all my praises, utmost respect and gratitude. You can’t go wrong when you go with the best. Mr. Schneiderman, you have earned a client for life. Thank you for all you have done and making things a little bit easier for me and my family.

Excellent and Resourceful
My interaction with attorney Dan Schneiderman was excellent. I wasn't quite sure what category of law my case fit in, so he graciously set up a virtual phone appointment to assist me. He answered my questions, was efficient and knowledgeable. I was informed of my options clearly and since my case is unique, he helped with an appropriate referral including a follow up letter. I’m very pleased and grateful.

Review
I am writing regarding Dan Schneiderman with The Law Offices of Daniel Schneiderman. I have had the pleasure of working with Dan on two separate occasions. Dan represented my minor son a few years ago and I was extremely impressed by his knowledge of the law as well as his kindness and attention to personal detail and relationships. He made me feel like I was a person, not just a number. I came back in to contact with Dan recently as he represented my family in another personal injury accident. Again, Dan went above and beyond to put my family at ease regarding the future as well as provide information about the case, what to expect, and answer any questions we had. I highly recommend The Law Office of Daniel Schneiderman.

Great Attorney
Dan represented me for a lawsuit in California. He clearly has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to the law and litigation but also understands the more practical business angle on issues. Great all around attorney with a practical and professional approach. I was very happy with the result.

Quick Resolution
I was served with a frivilous lawsuit and sought the advice of Dan Schneiderman and Chip Becker of Witan Law. After Dan pointed out all the problems with the Plaintiff's case to the opposing counsel, we had a dismissal within 2 weeks. Dan and Chip took my case seriously and were quick to respond to any questions and explain the process throughout. I am very happy with the end result. I highly recommend Witan Law .

Dan Schneiderman exceeded my expectations handling my car accident. I'd never been in an accident before and he did a great job explaining things clearly. He always kept me updated with where we were in the process and when there were minor delays. I would HIGHLY recommend him to family or friends, and feel grateful I was referred from a friend. And I didn't even mention how ecstatic I am with my settlement!!

Extremely grateful to have had Daniel as my attorney.
This past year I was in a bad car accident that left me pretty badly injured. I luckily was given the privledge to have Dan Schniederman as my attorney to represent me in a claim against an insurance company. I never thought the outcome of the case would have been this great but it was better than I expected! I am extremely happy and more than satisfied with the settlement. He was very genuine and professional and throughout the entire process I felt comfortable. He was there every step of the way, even down to explaining even the smallest of details. I would highly recommend Dan to anybody needing a great attorney to help them in any situation. If I ever am in need of an attorney again, I know exactly who I'm going to call.

Daniel G Schneiderman represents client in pedestrian accident
I was involved in an accident as a pedestrian in San Francisco. I reached out to an attorney friend in Sacramento, who recommended i contact Daniel Schneiderman to represent me. Dan and I arranged a meeting, and he allowed me to explain my situation and circumstance. Dan agreed to represent me, and did so with professionalism and humility. I found Dan to be an excellent listener, with exceptional communication skills. I have never been involved in a legal capacity, and Dan took the time to explain the timeline and legal process to me, and what I should expect throughout the process. I would without reservation, highly recommend Daniel to anyone seeking legal representation. My wife, who was also involved throughout the process concurs fully with my narrative of Daniel. He is excellent, and I would expect he will rise to attain the highest levels of success throughout his career in the world of law. Hats off............, counselor!

Mr. Schneiderman was courteous, helpful, and above all else professional. Through hard work and tireless effort he brought positive resolve to a very negative situation. I am very glad I had him on my side. If ever I get into a situation where an attorney is needed I will reach out for his help.

Car Acccident
Dan is very professional and down to earth at the same time. He was very helpful and understanding during my case. I was always worried that people would try to take advantage of me during the process because I am young, but he fought for me. I am happy with the results and I would highly reccomend him.

Very Good Attorney who keeps you informed.
Throughout my case, Attorney Schneiderman had kept me informed of how my case was proceeding, what I needed to be concerned about, some potential draw backs, but most importantly he kept me informed as to what and where my case was at the time. He appeared to be very concerned and interested in my case making me feel at ease as the case drew to a close.

Superior Litigation
I presented my case to Daniel Schneiderman, and he reviewed all options with me. He was realistic and informative as to my legal rights. I asked him to proceed forward on my behalf, and I was immediately being taken care of in all the details of the case. He and his staff gathered all information needed and informed me every inch of the way as to the progress and time table of my case. I felt taken care of....his secretary was wonderful and always insured great communication between myself and Daniel. If I had a question for him, she made sure I talked with him in a timely manner. She made sure I understood all forms and did so much over the phone for me so that I needn't make a long drive into the corporate office. Daniel was never hard to reach. I talked with him personally any time I had a question. He returned my calls promptly and treated my case with all respect and professionalism. I honestly felt that he gave me all sides legally and then left decisions up to me in the end. He advised me but did not dictate to me. He helped me understand how the court system works and how past practices and cases similar to mine turned out. He was so very patient and helpful despite working in a large corporation which, I'm sure, puts pressure on the lawyers and aides and secretaries for quick resolutions. Yet I felt secure in the fact that he understood my particular case and was doing his very best for me. He is very bright and insightful along with a personable personality which encourages trust both ways between client and lawyer. I would sum up by saying that I was 100% satisfied with Daniel's work on my behalf. I was very pleased every step of the way and felt so comfortable in his competence. We settled out of court, and I understood why we did that. I was more than happy with my compensation in my case. Daniel was responsible for pushing that envelope for me which resulted in a better settlement than I could have hoped for. I recommend Daniel Schneiderman very, very highly. He and his team are the very best in legal representation.
