How would one say, "The lawyer is less hungry than him"?

It'd be: Avukat ondan daha az aç.

But, we don't say that. We rarely use "less" in comparisons. Instead, we would say:

Avukat onun kadar aç değil. - The lawyer isn't as hungry as him.

or

O, avukattan daha tok. - He's more stuffed than the lawyer.

Yes in colloquial Turkish in a specific context (namely, if "ondan" is a person that you have been talking about already). In written Turkish or in many other contexts, it is wrong.

I understood from the comments on other sentences that daha was optional. But Ondan avukat aç was marked wrong. Is it wrong?
