Daniel Keane is Michael’s life partner. He was a high powered lawyer and now he works mostly on pro-bono cases.
Daniel comes from a wealthy New England family, in contrast to Michael’s lower-middle class Long Island background. He is medium height, with a bit of a paunch. He is calm, rational and wise. He keeps Michael on an even keel and knows how and when to pull back.
The relationship between Michael and Daniel is solid and much to be admired.
