AN EDUCATION

Daniel J. Palmer, a San Antonio native, graduated from the Antonian College Preparatory High School and subsequently attended the University of Texas at Austin. There, he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Government/Political Science and a double minor in Business and Interdisciplinary Studies.

Seeking to amplify his education, Daniel entered St. Mary’s University School of Law where he received his Juris Doctor. It was during this time that he had the privilege of spending a summer studying in Europe under the guidance of United States Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts at the Institute on World Legal Problems at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Daniel’s complete education experience is as follows:

THE MARK OF EXPERIENCE

After receiving his law license and admittance into the Texas Bar, Daniel continued to pave his way through the legal world by becoming a Criminal Texas State Prosecutor for the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office. His position as a first chair prosecutor allowed him to develop impressive skills as a trial attorney by successfully trying numerous cases involving a wide range of criminal offenses in front of juries.

This position additionally gave Daniel the responsibility to run the office’s Criminal Protective Orders Unit where he conducted many Protective Order hearings in the presence of every elected Civil District Court Judge in Bexar County. Daniel’s experience working in the DA’s office gave him insight into how crimes are prosecuted and how prosecutors are trained to bring a case against you. After his period working for the DA’s office, Daniel joined a multi-practice area law firm with offices throughout Texas where he handled the entire firm’s caseload and handled the legal needs of numerous clients.

REPRESENTING YOU LIKE FAMILY

When Daniel isn’t seen around the office strengthening a case or in the courtroom defending a client’s rights, he spends his time playing a variety of musical instruments, working on his vinyl record collection, reading, long-distance running and cheering on his Texas Longhorns and San Antonio Spurs. First and foremost, Daniel loves spending his spare time by his wife and son’s side.

Family is an essential part of Daniel’s life and his passion for his loved ones translates to his approach in legal cases. His motto has always been: “I represent my clients as aggressively as if they were my own family.” By using his knowledge of the legal world and experience as a prosecutor, Daniel always works diligently on your case while delivering the results you expect.

Daniel Palmer not only takes pride in his work, but he actually cares about his clients. Daniel is an excellent advocate that actually listened to what I had to say. I never felt like another number to him, and I never had to refresh his memory about my case. He was always upfront about options and outcomes. I would recommend Daniel to anyone that needs someone to represent them effectively.

Mr. Palmer is very professional and punctual. He never tried to convince me to agree to something I knew I was not guilty of. He listens very carefully and does what he can (legally) for his client. As a result my case was dismissed. If you're looking for a good professional lawyer, Mr. Palmer is the person you're looking for.

Mr. Daniel Palmer saved me! He is a hard-working and brilliant lawyer who knows the intricacies and complexities of criminal law. He used this knowledge and expertise along with much time spent researching case law to reduce the prosecutor’s case to hearsay, which is to say that it ended up being a very weak case. As a result, my case was dismissed, and I’m free to move on with my life.

Daniel was always available. He was considerate and helpful. If he didn't know the answer he found it or found someone who knew it. I had an incident where I needed to leave him a message around 12:30am and he called back 10 minutes after the message was left for him. He was fantastic and made me feel at ease with my situation. If you need a lawyer Daniel is definitely the way to go. He will take great care of you in whatever situation you find yourself in.

The possibility of going to trial for my criminal case was a very scary thing in my recent life. I mean think about it: it could have destroyed my life. I have a lot going for me, and the good Lord has really blessed me. Yes, I made lots of stupid mistakes (I’m only human) BUT I wasn’t guilty of that which I was accused. For this reason, it was a great relief knowing that I had a brilliant, hard-working, and compassionate lawyer fighting for me. You simply cannot find a better lawyer. He’s truly the best!
