Daniel Van Slyke

Attorney at Law

Daniel started his legal career in civil litigation, where he worked on dozens of cases involving deceased and incapacitated individuals. As a litigation attorney, Daniel observed countless ways that things go badly for families, friends, neighbors, and closely held businesses when people do not properly plan for their passing or for possible incapacity. Strongly believing that he would provide more value by helping people plan for death and incapacity than by litigating after something goes wrong, Daniel developed a passion for estate planning. With compassion, Daniel strives to meet his clients’ planning goals and bring them peace of mind about their estates and assets.

Daniel is admitted to practice law in California, Texas, and Missouri. Daniel earned a J.D. magna cum laude at Texas A&M University School of Law, a Ph.D. at Saint Louis University, an M.A. at the University of Dallas, and a B.A. at the University of St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto.
