About Daniel

I am the son of a farmer and a public school teacher. I am the grandson of a missionary and a preacher. My wife Erika is a nurse in this community. We have two beautiful children, Harper who is 3 and Grafe who is 1. I have a half Lab half Weimaraner named Jameson who has enabled us to meet several of our neighbors over the years when he decides to go on adventures in Lamar County. 

I grew up on a farm where we raised cattle, had a few horses and grew cotton, soybeans, and corn. I remember my first "paycheck" came when I rode on the front of the tractor spraying weeds that were springing up in a cotton field.

After high school I attended a community college. I transferred to Mississippi College where I graduated with a degree in political science in 2007. In 2010 I graduated from the Mississippi College School of Law. I am now a partner in the law firm of Johnson, Ratliff, & Waide, PLLC in Hattiesburg where I practice primarily in the areas of employment, civil rights, and personal injury law.

I am a partner at Venture Church in Hattiesburg where my wife and I will substitute in the child care area when needed.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment and that an unborn child has rights which should be protected. I believe that education and workforce training are the keys to a stronger Lamar County and better Mississippi.
