Danelius is currently the associated partner at TGS Baltic law office (Varul, Grun, Sutkienė). Before becoming a lawyer, he served as prosecutor for 16 years and left the prosecution system in 2013.

Danėlius represented presidential spokeswoman Daiva Ulbinaitė in the case where she was charged with leaking a state secret. Ulbinaitė was cleared of all charges.
