Danielle understands that litigation issues can feel like a crisis on both a corporate and individual level.

Danielle considers herself something of a crisis manager. Her career is all about litigation, and she defends companies and individuals in a variety of complex matters including commercial and business issues, real estate, employment, health law, and product liability. She also represents physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers faced with professional board complaints. Her products liability experience includes defending death and personal injury cases for major automotive, mobile home, tire, and industrial and consumer products manufacturers. In addition, she has experience defending construction defect cases and medical malpractice claims. 

Before entering private practice, Danielle was a term briefing attorney (law clerk) for a federal judge. Her intimate knowledge of the judicial system helps her achieve successful results for clients in both state and federal courts.  Danielle is also a member of the firm’s innovative eDiscovery Solutions team, which emphasizes a transparent, trustworthy, and cost-effective discovery process.  

Danielle enjoys the excitement of thinking on her feet, and how providing good defense can lead a company into a more stable position.
