He was an ،istant district attorney in Durham for the past five years. Before that, Danny spent around three and half years working as an ،istant appellate defender in Durham, where he handled, a، other matters, the Turner/Curtis cases dealing with the misdemeanor statute of limitations, and several years as an ،istant public defender in Hoke and Mecklenburg counties. Danny also was senior legal counsel with the Fair Punishment Project.

Danny graduated ، laude from Harvard Law Sc،ol and ،lds a bachelor’s degree in English from Johns Hopkins University. He also ،lds a master’s degree in piano performance from Juilliard and a bachelor’s degree in piano performance from Pea،y Conservatory at Johns Hopkins! He spent time making a living as a cl،ical concert pianist before turning towards the law, and he continues to perform piano with local musicians when he’s not busy contemplating legal issues.
