Danielle earned her J.D. from the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, where she focused on her passion for family law. While in law school, Danielle had the privilege of working as a law clerk for the Honorable Judges David Prince and Robert L. Lowrey of the 4th Judicial District. This experience provided Danielle with the opportunity to better understand how the court views and assesses various legal issues, which aids in Danielle’s ability to advise her clients in private practice. Danielle also interned with Metro Volunteer Lawyers and the Family Law Court Program. Her time there was instrumental in expanding upon her knowledge of the divorce process, and the importance of access to justice for people of all backgrounds and resources. Danielle then began her family law career in private practice while still in law school.
