David Daniel celebrates 60 years on the roll!

Year Published: 2016

David Daniel, the ‘Daniel’ of ‘SAS Daniels’, has recently celebrated 60 years on the roll of the Law Society. This is a fantastic achievement for the local solicitor whose grandfather set up the firm Daniels in 1885 practising in Congleton and Macclesfield. The practice of Daniels merged with SAS Lawyers in 2006 to become SAS Daniels. Our firm has continued to grow since and now has offices in Stockport, Macclesfield, Chester and Congleton.

David Daniel Solicitor in Congleton

David Daniel

David qualified as a solicitor in 1955, the same year in which Disneyland opened its doors in California, James Dean starred in his first movie before his tragic death later the same year and the Guinness Book of Records was first published.

As well as his legal practice David has been involved in numerous local organisations, held a number of appointments including HM Coroner and has been involved in a great number of local charities in Congleton. He was awarded an MBE in the 2006 New Year’s Honours list for his service to the community.

The firm of Daniels began when David’s grandfather, Thomas Albiston Daniel, was admitted as a solicitor. He died in 1917 and the practice was taken over by his son, Rea Albiston Daniel until his death in 1959. Rea was also a coroner, a local Mayor and in addition to his charity work he held a number of official roles in Congleton including a commissioner for income tax. David is Rea’s nephew and continued with the family firm until he retired from legal practice in 1990, although since then he has remained on the roll and continues to take an active part in the community even now.

When David qualified in 1955 the practice had just five members of staff. Today, we have 130 employees working across all areas of law and have witnessed considerable growth over the last 60 years. We have also seen fantastic success in Chambers UK and The Legal 500, the leading industry guides for solicitors.
