Commercial Litigation Paralegal, Daniel Maul, was recently spotlighted in The Paralegal Journal:
“Daniel Maul is a commercial litigation paralegal/case manager at the law firm of Durham Jones & Pinegar. Mr. Maul has worked as a paralegal for the past 11 years, but when he first entered into the legal profession, he started out as a court runner. As a court runner, he was able to go to school to obtain a Paralegal Associates degree and, thereafter, he worked his way up the corporate ladder. While Mr. Maul still has hopes of continuing to climb the corporate ladder (maybe even going back to school to earn a juris doctorate degree and become a lawyer), he has found a passion for volunteer work as an Educational Surrogate. As an Educational Surrogate, Mr. Maul advocates for the educational needs of disadvantage students with special needs and provides a voice for children that would otherwise not have a voice. Mr. Maul’s passion for helping special needs children comes from his upbringing where both his mother and grandmother have worked most of their lives assisting special needs children. For 2 consecutive years (2015 and 2016), Mr. Maul was presented with the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s Volunteer Surrogate Award. Outside of his career in the legal industry, Mr. Maul enjoys going to the movies, bowling and hanging out with his friends. Additionally, over the past 3 years, Mr. Maul has dedicated his life to becoming healthier (losing over 120 lbs in 15 months). He has participated half a dozen races, one of which was a half marathon (13.1 miles) in May of 2015 in which he achieved a personal record of a completion time of 1 hour 42 minutes (that’s an average of 7 minutes 47 seconds per mile). This upcoming April, he will be participating in a marathon – – or 26.2 miles – – where his goal is to complete the run within 4 hours. From Court Runner to Paralegal to now Marathon Runner – Mr. Maul truly has gone full circle.”
Congrats to Daniel!
