William B. Daniels, II

Attorney at Law

Billy Daniels is the licensed attorney who assists Laguna Legal’s clients when they have an issue that requires an attorney to be involved. Billy Daniels has over 50 years of experience practicing law, specializing in personal injury. Billy Daniels is an excellent trial attorney and has argued cases twice in the Supreme Court. In Billy’s own words, “Every person I have represented; as well as every trip I have taken; and every trial I have been in has been a learning experience. That is what life is about. However, we tend to use a methodology that isolates a problem into compartments and segments, and we address each one according to the agreed strategy to move forward. We simply make decisions and solve the problems one at a time.”
