Daniel Hyun - Class Action & Employment Lawyer
It’s About the Principle For Daniel
Daniel Hyun has always had a passion for helping others. In his youth, Daniel served his community through volunteer work at homeless shelters, fundraisers, and senior homes. As Daniel grew older, he witnessed people who could not defend themselves being taken advantage of by wealthier people and corporations. This motivated Daniel to become an attorney in order to help better his community and obtain justice for people who may not be able to afford legal services.
Daniel is dedicated to obtaining relief for as many people as possible, and as such, litigates employment and consumer class actions. Daniel strongly believes it is unethical for an individual or corporation to illegally deprive people of their hard-earned money, no matter how small the amount. As such, he zealously prosecutes the return of that money to its rightful owners.

Daniel was a Scholar in Law recipient and made the Dean’s List for being in the top 20% of his class. He also received the CALI Award for having the highest grade in his Mediation course and served as an associate editor for his law school’s Journal of Law and Policy.
