Daniel L. Owel focuses his practice exclusively on all aspects of family/domestic law. Following a lengthy career in the health insurance industry, where he managed a unit of health care fraud investigators, Mr. Owel earned his law degree while simultaneously working full time and clerking at a prominent Montgomery County law firm.
Mr. Owel began his law practice in civil litigation, representing various financial institutions in Maryland courtrooms. Before long, he shifted his practice to handling exclusively family/domestic cases. Today, he is a highly experienced litigator, equally adept at settling cases as he is trying cases in the courtroom.
Mr. Owel has volunteered his services to the Montgomery County Family Law Section of the Bar, the Montgomery County Pro Se Project and the Women’s Law Center of Maryland.
He earned his undergraduate degree (1991) and law degree with honors (1995) from the University of Maryland Law School. He served as Associate Editor of the Maryland Law Review from 1993 to 1995. He is a member of the Montgomery County Bar Association, Maryland State Bar Association, American Bar Association, and District of Columbia Bar Association.
