With over 12 years of experience in the legal industry, Danielle understands the needs of her clients and the unique challenges they each face. Prior to becoming a licensed attorney, Danielle spent several years working as a litigation paralegal in diverse practice areas, including family law, criminal law, personal injury and commercial litigation. As a paralegal, Danielle learned the value of a strong client relationship and its impact on a lawyer's ability to effectively advocate on their client's behalf. Danielle was involved in every phase of each case, from initial client-intakes through preparation and completion of trial. It was during this time that Danielle discovered her passion for the law and the plight of her clients. Their personal stories and the injustices they suffered had a lasting impact on Danielle. This invariably compelled Danielle to attend law school to allow her to better serve her clients.
Danielle continued to maintain full-time employment as a paralegal while attending law school at night. Prior to hanging her own shingle, Danielle was employed as a litigation attorney at a small plaintiffs' firm specializing in personal injury and insurance bad faith. It was at this firm that Danielle would conduct her first solo trial; obtaining a victory for her client.
An avid fitness enthusiast and a lover of the outdoors, Danielle enjoys running, skiing, wakeboarding and biking in her spare time.
