Daniel Faessler is the Pride Law Fund Tom Steel Fellow at Transgender Law Center and founder of the Transgender Legal Services Project (TLSP). TLSP’s goal is to reduce the barriers in accessing legal services for the transgender and gender non-conforming community in the Bay Area with a primary focus on assisting community members who are low-income, people of color, and/or Spanish-speaking.
Daniel is a graduate of Brooklyn Law School. While in law school, he clerked at Bay Area Legal Aid, South Brooklyn Legal Services, and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project. Before starting the Tom Steel Fellowship, Daniel practiced at Weiss Law, a small litigation firm that exclusively brings employment discrimination claims based on gender identity or gender expression. Daniel is also fluent in Spanish.
