Meet Daniel, Our Founder

Daniel's commitment to helping others has been a driving force throughout his endeavors. Initially drawn to public service, he immersed himself in government work, driven by his desire to make a meaningful difference in people's lives.

His passion for aiding individuals led him to pursue studies in government and policy analysis, earning both his undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Florida. Following his tenure in state and local government roles, Daniel recognized a deeper calling to directly assist people.

Upon completing law school and obtaining admission to the Florida Bar, Daniel established Rudez PL to fulfill his aspiration of positively impacting individuals' lives. He considers it a privilege to serve his community and support individuals through significant legal matters.

Daniel's roots trace back to Croatia, and he cherishes any opportunity to visit the region. Outside of work, he finds joy in spending quality time with his wife and two sons, embracing the moments they share.

Community Is Everything

Our firm began by serving patients of Daniel's father who arrived in the USA as refugees from war-torn regions like Bosnia, Croatia, and Serbia. Since then, our dedication has been unwavering in assisting and supporting this community.

We will always give our support and energy to our community. They need someone to represent them and understand where they are coming from, and we strive to fill that role.

We connect with them by putting ourselves in their shoes, actively listening to their problem, taking time to visit them, and reaching out on a personal level.
