Mr. Kwok enjoys a strong relationship with the press, based on credibility and integrity earned over 30 years of handling high profile newsworthy cases. Says Mr. Kwok - "The art of the personal injury case begins when we first meet the client and decide whether to pursue a case or not. We routinely turn down more cases than we accept; turning down a losing case is just as valuable as taking on a winning case. We have surrounded ourselves with wise counsel and round-table every single significant case we file."

In 2014, Mr. Kwok led the trial team in representing 13 Plaintiffs in the Channelview explosion at Oiltaking Partners that killed 1 and severely injured a group of workers. After a 5-week jury trial, the jury returned a verdict in favor of Mr. Kwok’s clients, landing the verdict in the Texas Lawyers Hall of Fame.

On January 24, 2020, a catastrophic propylene explosion at Watson Grinding in West Houston killed 3 people and destroyed 400+ homes. Kwok Daniel was honored to be at the forefront of that litigation, representing over 1,000 individual clients, including 160+ minors. Within days of the explosion, Watson filed for bankruptcy which took a year to get remanded back to state court. Mr. Kwok served on the bankruptcy committee and helped negotiate the case remand to state court before MDL Judge Mark Davidson. Once in state court, Judge Davidson entered a Case Management Order and Plaintiff Fact Sheet Order that kept the Firm busy through the Covid shutdown. Under the CMO, both sides selected track cases and commenced discovery under a tight schedule with all cases set for trial or face dismissal for want of prosecution. Mr. Kwok undertook 100+ depositions in one year, many lasting multiple days and many as first chair, including the CEO of Watson Grinding and CEO of Western International Gas.
