Know who you are working with

Different attorneys have different skillsets, personalities, and traits that may or may not be right for the task at hand. Getting to know your attorney is just as imperative as your attorney getting to know you. 

Our Vision

The law is complex, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't understand the process. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to make difficult legal concepts easier to grasp and to work toward a stated goal - whether that be winning your lawsuit, closing on that purchase agreement, or recognizing and avoiding red flags in a business transaction.

Our Mission

Our motto says it all - small firm attention, big firm experience. Our mission is to provide individualized attention to every client while providing the experience coming from years working with Fortune 500 clients on major legal matters.

Core Values

Above all else, we believe the law should be fair in its application. At the end of the day, the better facts, the better argument, and the more skilled attorney should prevail. Honesty is key when choosing an attorney - you're not paying for a cheerleader. Rather, you are paying for an advisor. Sometimes that means hearing what you want to hear and other times it does not. But we will always give you our honest opinion based on our years of experience.

Our Attorneys

The attorneys at DeSouza Law strive to deliver top notch service while giving you the individualized attention you deserve. Read through our profiles below to see whether we are a good match for your legal needs. 

Daniel DeSouza

Daniel is the founding shareholder of DeSouza Law.  Prior to establishing DeSouza Law in 2014, he was a senior attorney with a leading Florida law firm (Becker & Poliakoff, PA) and before that an attorney in Washington, DC with a top multinational firm (Milbank LLP). He has handled high stakes litigation with hundreds of millions of dollars on the line and gone toe-to-toe with some of the country’s brightest attorneys.

He is committed to providing practical, real-world advice to clients in a language they can understand (no ‘lawyer-ese’) and obtaining favorable results for them wherever possible.

What Our Clients Say

We think we’re great attorneys (at least that’s what our mothers say), but the opinions of the people and companies we represent are what matter most. Below are just a few of the many kind words from our current and former clients, many of which we are privileged to also call our friends. 

Daniel provides straight-forward representation and is always clear about goals and expectations. I have been consistently pleased with his work, his response time and his billing. I would highly recommend him. 

Rik Deitsch (CEO, Nutra Pharma Corp.)

Dan has represented our company in one lawsuit we had against former employees who broke a non-compete clause and in minor legal situations as well. He is quite eloquent and knowledgeable. I recommend him in the highest possible terms and without reservation.

Moshe Segebre (President, Estetique Inc. USA)

Daniel DeSouza is probably the best attorney I have used in many years. He is highly knowledgeable and fights for his clients. I was very satisfied with the outcome of the case on which he represented me. I would use Daniel again for any type of legal issues. I cannot recommend him more highly.
