Daniel M. Schwarz, a partner at Link & Rockenbach, PA, concentrates his practice in the areas of appeals and litigation support.
Daniel graduated summa cum laude from the University of Florida with a double major in both Economics and Political Science. Daniel obtained his law degree, summa cum laude, from the University of Miami School of Law, where he served as an Articles and Comments editor on the University of Miami Law Review, as a Writing Dean’s Fellow in the school’s Academic Achievement Program, and obtained several book awards for his coursework. While in school, Daniel interned at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, and for a small civil litigation law firm in Coral Gables.
After graduation, Daniel clerked for two years for the Honorable Spencer D. Levine at the Fourth District Court of Appeal, where he continued to sharpen the quality of his writing, and obtained insight into the appellate judicial process. Daniel transitioned to working in the appellate group at one of Florida’s largest defense firms, where he handled appeals and presented oral arguments in each of Florida’s five district courts of appeal and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, in addition to several appellate divisions of the circuit courts, and provided litigation support on case-dispositive and post-trial matters.
At Link & Rockenbach, Daniel continues to use his legal research and writing skills at all levels of the Florida court system.
