Daniel Covich has an extensive background in social justice and civil rights cases. He was lead counsel in Browder v. Harris County, which challenged the county’s policy related to peace officer training and the use of deadly force. He was one of two originating attorneys who first recognized mortgage industry misconduct in loan underwriting for minorities. This early insight helped lead to the historic NAACP class action suit brought against many mortgage lenders. It was one of the first such lawsuits in the nation at that time. In 2015, Daniel was a member of the legal team that helped overturn Texas’ discriminatory Voter I.D. Law, which disenfranchised many minority voters by requiring a photo I.D. The team’s victory resulted in the state legislature changing Texas law.
Daniel is a NAACP Silver Life Member and is co-chair of the NAACP Legal Redress Committee. He has served on the State Bar of Texas Judicial Screening Committee, Elder Law Committee and Legal Services for the Poor.
