Jake Daniel


Jake decided to come back home to practice law with his dad because of the deep roots that his family has in the community and because practicing law in Caswell and the surrounding areas allows Jake to carry on a rich tradition of offering unparalleled legal services to the people of the region.

My dad told me while I was in law school that, a lawyer should take pride in his profession and serve the people of his community to the best of his ability.  He also said, being a lawyer is a privilege, and having such a privilege empowers your ability to give back.  Hearing these words had a deep and profound effect on me and how I wanted to carry out how I practice law.  This was a big influence on my decision to come home and join my dad at Daniel | Thomas.

With Daniel | Thomas being founded on the border of North Carolina and Virginia, Jake saw the benefit of being licensed in both states, so after becoming licensed in North Carolina in 2011, Jake became licensed in Virginia as well in 2012.  Having the flexibility to practice across state lines, both in North Carolina and Virginia, gives the ability to represent clients in the area to the fullest due to the many cross-state legal issues that people sometimes face.
