I’m Danielle: I was born in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma (outside Tulsa), but am a proud Razorback and Little Rocker. Gamma Eta got me through the U of A and Karaoke at the Town Pump got me through law school at Bowen. You can still find my plate at The Flying Saucer and I am (okay, maybe used to be) on a first name basis there as a reigning trivia champ!
My work history includes banks, banks and more banks, which makes sense since my position at Lion Legal Services is handling business, real estate, and other civil cases. All of our transactional cases cross my desk at some point or another, including real estate closings, business formations, landlord evictions, and debt defense; as well as most of our civil litigation cases, including consumer protection work, suing debt collectors for wrongful collection tactics, business dissolutions, fraud, misrepresentation, and breach of contracts.
Lion Legal Services is my happy place with our no-nonsense, team approach to resolving clients’ issues. Unlike most folks, I’m non-confrontational and quiet. Don’t let that fool ya into complacency, though! Details are my jam; my introverted “woman of few words” demeanor complements well the other attorneys on my team who take a bigger picture approach.
Clients are apprehensive, sometimes, that my quiet personality does not belong in the courtroom. Being true to yourself (in and outside the courtroom) is the most effective lawyer-ing technique, trust me. My questioning and arguments are more persuasive because they are not hidden behind superfluous chit chat, talking just to hear myself talk (you know which lawyers I’m talking about!)
I’m a proud (and quiet) member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association.
My personal life is pretty traditional – dogs, plants, husband, and a baby! My son Grissom, craft beer, good food, Razorback sports, and my Emergency Room nurse husband Daniel (Danielle and Daniel..fun right?) are a few of my favorite things.
