Daniel Zumpano is a manager partner of the firm, a leader in our Litigation Department and Family Law practice.  A Harvard University graduate, Daniel received his Juris Doctor from the University of Miami in 2004.  He is a member of the Cuban American Bar Association and American Bar Association. 

As a lawyer, Daniel is a natural litigator.  He represents multinational and domestic businesses in resolving commercial disputes, with special emphasis on business torts, contract disputes, and dissolutions.  Daniel has successfully represented clients and defended matters in Federal and State courts - from strategic pretrial and discovery practice, to evidentiary hearings, to appeals.  In the area of business partnership disputes and dissolutions, Daniel has developed a well-deserved reputation as an effective advocate and counselor, advising clients on the most effective means to preserve their controlling interests while protecting their businesses from being torn apart by internal conflict.

Fluent in Spanish, he also actively represents our clients on international litigation matters and has handled multijurisdictional disputes for our clients with interests in Latin America, including disputes involving Mexican, Costa Rican, and Bolivian entities and legal issues.

More than a litigator, Daniel applies the tactical and strategic skills he developed in his practice to bear in advising our entertainment and media clients.  He represents several celebrities and professional athletes, advising them on a variety of contractual and investment matters.

 He is also committed to public service and has donated numerous hours of service to the Miami Rescue Mission.
