Daniel R. Flaherty, founder and managing attorney of Flaherty Law, LLC, is a respected and accomplished trial lawyer with a history of success representing both plaintiffs and defendants. His practice focuses on personal injury matters, wrongful death, nursing home negligence, product liability, and worker's compensation.

Daniel began his career in insurance defense litigation representing individuals in personal injury and property damage matters. In 2010, he decided his true passion was representing individuals injured due to no fault of their own. Daniel joined a larger, Chicago-area trial firm and began exclusively representing individuals in various personal injury matters. In his nearly five years at that firm, Daniel recovered millions of dollars for his clients.

In 2015, Daniel followed his entrepreneurial spirit and founded the law firm of Flaherty Law, LLC. He continues to represent the injured and also assists individuals with workers' compensation matters.

Daniel attended the University of St. Thomas, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Entrepreneurship. He went on to William Mitchell College of Law, where he focused his studies on litigation. In just his second year in law school, Daniel was a member of his school’s advocacy team, which competed in the Association of Trial Lawyers of America’s national advocacy competition in Boston, MA. The knowledge gained in school and his many years of experience have given Daniel the foundation to be the trial lawyer he is today.

Daniel lives with his family in the southwest suburbs. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with family and friends, working on projects around the house, and rooting for his favorite sports teams. He is also an active member in the local Men’s Club and Knights of Columbus.
