Powerful Attorney
Danielle is the attorney you want and need on your side! She’s honest, intelligent, and an attorney to be feared in any courtroom. She helped my husband get through a case that many attorneys would have feared. We even came out with all charges being dropped! She’s a tough cookie that you will love when everything is said and done.

Thank God I hired an attorney
I had never been in trouble for anything in my life until I got my DUI. Scared and clueless as to what to do I was told to call Danielle, who came very highly recommended to me. I called her and she had me come in immediately to discuss everything. She had a copy of the police report when I arrived and had already gone over it. I was so embarrassed and ashamed of myself I didn't know how I could face anybody in the court room. Danielle took care of all my court dates for me. I didn't even have to go once and what a relief that was. I am a NJ resident so DMV told me I wasn't entitled to a Florida Hardship license. Danielle told me I absolutely was. After going back and forth with DMV, Danielle was able to get me that Hardship license. Even the DUI instructor asked how I got that. My reply was I have an amazing lawyer and he agreed. She was also able to get my license back for me on the DMV side of the case which nobody thought was possible. She also got my charges dropped to a lesser charge on the criminal side. I didn't know the first thing about how the system worked but Danielle and her staff definitely know their stuff. I was just granted early term probation as well. Again with the help of Danielle. Honestly, without Danielle I don't know what I would have done. I just know I couldn't have done any of this without her.

Exellent Lawyer and cares about her clients and the outcomes of their cases - Highly Recomended
For starters, Danielle O'Halloran is an excellent lawyer who truly cares about her clients and the outcomes of their cases. After consultation with over 3 different lawyers in the Fort Myers/ Cape Coral area, my organization decided to choose Danielle. After our free consultation, I knew Danielle was without a doubt the best and right choice. She is extremely personable, professional, dedicated and is upfront from the start. She also makes herself very available. There was never a moment in the entire process of hiring Danielle where I felt abandoned. When I called, she answered. When I sent emails, she responded quickly. We had several face to face meetings in her office and she even drove out of her way to come meet me at a more convenient location days before the hearing. I can't stress enough that Danielle actually cares about the outcomes of her cases. In addition to Danielle winning our case, she also met with me to offer guidance, detailed advice and encouragement on seeking a profession in law, something I had mentioned to her. Danielle is a do it all lawyer and is truly committed to her work. I would highly recommend Danielle to anybody going through any legal issues. 10/10!

Exceptional lawyer
I would highly recommend Danielle she was very professional, She went above and beyond , compassionate yet stern when needed. If not for her skills I fear what would have become of my son she helped turn his life around and gave me piece of mind.She was available when needed , always prepared to answer any and all questions in a very prompt manner.

Best Attorney in Fort Myers
When it comes to criminal defense, there is none better than Danielle. I've had the opportunity to work with Danielle when she was a former prosecutor, and now as a defense attorney. As a police officer, I have the opportunity to go against hundreds of attorney's on my cases. Hands down, Danielle is the most thorough, knowledgeable, and aggressive attorney out there that I go against. She is very passionate about her cases and does everything possible to win for her client. She is the only one I would personally hire if I needed criminal defense. There are other good attorneys out there, but none are as great as Danielle.

Fantastic Experience & Excellent Lawyer
Danielle handled my case for me quickly, cleanly, and left no detail unattended. Throughout the process I faced with many difficult questions and choices and Danielle took the time to explain everything to me carefully and fully. She's also highly ethical and fair. I was very pleased with my result. She's a tremendous advocate for her clients and her professionalism is only exceeded by her legal competence.

She was terrific
I hired Miss Liguori to handle a DUI case for me where the cop arrested me falselty. I was impressed with how knowledgable she was right from the beginning. She took me through the case process step by step, helped me navigate through the DMV suspension and ultimately got my case reduced down to nothing more than a reckless driving! I am so thankful and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants an attorney.

"I have known Danielle for a number of years. During her time as a prosecutor as well as her years in private criminal defense, Danielle exhibits some of the best traits you could look for in a lawyer. She knows the law, fights for her clients, and always puts up a formidable skilled defense. As a defense attorney myself Danielle is one of the few people I would trust with my case should I ever find myself needing legal services. I absolutely endorse this lawyer."
