Driven, determined and with an unrelenting desire for justice, he has quickly built a reputation as one of Australia’s most formidable medical negligence lawyers.

He leads Shine’s medical negligence practice in Victoria and has played a pivotal role in the firm’s drive to help regional communities impacted by the state’s rural health crisis.

"From the moment I had my case taken over from my previous law firm I was able to gauge the difference. Daniel Opare from Shine immediately saw the merit in my claim and devised a strategy to proceed. The plan involved various aspects and showed a higher level of professionalism and competence. I experienced true empathy with my situation which really showed that they cared about me. I received a great result and all the people at Shine should be proud of themselves for their excellent work."


"I just want to thank Daniel Opare and the medical negligence team for working on my case.

The outcome was truly beyond my expectations and goes a long way towards making my life better.

I felt supported all the way and understood what was happening, communication was excellent.

So, thank you again."


"Thank you to Daniel Opare, Sophie and the rest of the medical negligence team for their excellent communication during what could have been a very daunting and terrifying experience. They helped ease my anxiety throughout the already tough situation. Thanks again everyone."


"We highly recommend Shine Lawyers, in particular Daniel Opare and Linda Luc who were very positive and helpful, right from the start. It was a very daunting and scary thing to go through but Daniel and Linda made us feel at ease and explained every step. They were encouraging when we wanted to give up, they never gave up, they gave their all. Their knowledge and determination never failed and we went on to win our case, it still doesn't seem real. Thank you everyone at Shine, A+++"
