Danielle holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Criminology and Criminal Justice from Griffith University.
Danielle began pursuing her career as a criminal lawyer by working as a law clerk in the practice's criminal law section. Her professional interests were strengthened when she participated in Griffith University’s Innocence Project, a pro bono service committed to freeing innocent persons who have been wrongly convicted in Australia. It was here that she was able to get hands on experience with how the criminal justice system works, and the errors that stem from it. “It made me particularly aware of how important it is for those who are accused of a crime to have strong, competent, and diligent legal representation”.
Danielle personally appears in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts, and interacts with clients, the prosecution, and Magistrates and Judges on a day to day basis.
