Alyssa B. McDaniel

Of Counsel

As an award-winning moot court competitor and former judicial clerk, Alyssa knows what it takes to craft a winning case.  From the moment a client steps in the door until closing argument, she champions her clients’ causes with persistent determination and compelling advocacy.  Having served in one of the busiest federal districts in the country as a law clerk to the Honorable Ronald S.W. Lew of the United States District Court of the Central District of California, Alyssa knows what it takes to win over juries and judges alike, and she uses such knowledge for the success of her clients. 

Before joining the firm, Alyssa gained additional valuable insight clerking for the Honorable Edith H. Jones of the Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.  Alyssa is a Blackstone Legal Fellow, member of the Order of Barristers, and former editor of the Pepperdine University Law Review.
