He had been a labourer, carpenter, mason, minibus driver, minibus tout and security guard, but now he is a practising Attorney-at-Law.
After facing many trials and jumping from one job to the next, Ronald J. Daniels, was finally able to achieve his dream. He was recently admitted to the Bar.
He is the son of former Magistrate Fitzgerald Yaw and Marcia Daniels. His petition for admission to the Bar was presented by Attorney-at-Law Nigel Hughes.
Daniels attended the Grove Primary School, Central High School and the University of Guyana before proceeding to Hugh Wooding Law School. Hughes said that Daniels was a new breed of human rights advocate whose entrance into law augurs well for the profession.
Daniels was one of the paralegals who assisted Hughes on the treason trial.
One of his goals was to become a foremost Caribbean legal advocate advancing the interests of the underprivileged and challenged people. He also had an interest in revolutionizing Caribbean legal systems and Caribbean Politics.
In accepting his petition Justice Roxanne George-Wiltshire welcomed Daniels to the Bar and urged him to bring a human rights perspective to the courts. Justice George commented on the fact that it must be a proud day for his father who previously sat as a Magistrate. In accepting the admonitions of Justice George, Ronald Daniels indicated to the court that it had not been an easy journey to get here.
He thanked all those who had assisted him along his journey and it was a privilege to have been admitted before the Judge who he had always hoped would accept his petition.
Present to witness his admission were Social Activist Mark Benschop, Political Commentator Freddie Kissoon and WPA member Dr. David Hinds.
Hughes observed that most of the special branch must have spent the afternoon in the vicinity of the court given the members of the audience who were in attendance.
Daniels is currently practising in Trinidad and Tobago.
