Daniel Rod

senior lawyer

modern lawyer
Danny recently joined the firm in 2017 and has had a number of years of experience at of the the other large Sydney law firms who specialise in family law. Originally from South Africa, Danny has grown up in Sydney and knows the Eastern Suburbs like the back of his hand.

As a Sydney lawyer, Danny’s second home is in the Family Court of Australia and in the Federal Circuit Court fighting hard for his clients. He’s a details man and can pull together complex information quickly and effectively to leverage it for the benefit of his clients.

At heart though Danny is people person – he cares deeply about his clients and works hard for what is best for them.  Danny uses his ‘out of the box’ thinking, sorting things out in a creative way to help people resolve their matters in a manner that works for them.  He is also a firm believer in the benefits that new technology and innovation offer, especially in the legal sphere.

He is passionate about helping to change the way the Family Law is practised in Sydney law firms and how it affects separating parties. Danny can fight hard in Court when that’s what’s needed, but he’s equally comfortable negotiating practical solutions using alternative dispute resolution methods on a client’s behalf.

Danny has a number of years’ experience in leadership roles within the Jewish Community. Danny was the NSW President of the Australasian Union of Jewish Students, a Director of the Zionist Council of NSW and is an elected Deputy at the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies.
