Overview

Daniel Limés Rodríguez represents and advises clients on various aspects of labor and employment law. He defends employers against claims of discrimination, harassment, retaliation and other employment-related issues in state court and administrative agencies.

While working at the Legal Aid Clinic during his third year of law school, Daniel advised and represented plaintiffs on various issues, ranging from union disputes before administrative agencies, to discrimination and unjustified dismissal claims before local state courts. He further strengthened his litigation skills by participating in the 2017 Estrella Trial and Advocacy Competition and the 2018 Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition.

At different moments during law school, Daniel worked part-time as a law clerk at Schuster Aguiló, as a judicial intern at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and as a Research Assistant in Political Science. During summers, he worked as a law clerk at another litigation-oriented law firm in Washington D.C. in 2017, and as a judicial intern at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in 2016. Other extracurricular activities included serving as an editor at the UPR Law Journal and as a member of the Intellectual Property Pro Bono Program.

Before attending law school, Daniel's studies focused on issues of prejudice and stereotyping, from both a cognitive and an anthropological perspective, focusing on the social construction of racial and cultural markers. This experience helped prepare him for the practice of employment law.
