The most important part of practicing law is getting to know my clients and coming up with creative and efficient resolutions to the problems that they face. I recognize that the litigation process can be stressful and overwhelming, and strive to provide both quality representation and peace of mind to my clients by treating each case as if it were my own.
Danielle focuses her practice primarily in the areas of medical malpractice, nursing home litigation and professional liability defense.
