About Danielle

Outside the practice of law, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  My family includes my husband and four children, who are under the age of four and a half years, and two English Cocker Spaniels. I fill much of my free time with photography and travel, which often go hand in hand.

I enjoy my adoption law practice which involves representing birth parents and prospective adoptive parents.

I also enjoy photography, traveling and spending time with family and friends.

The best. A+++
Real review from an actual client. I'll keep it short and sweet. A genuine interest and compassion for your case. Extremely attentive. Keeps your head out of the clouds and focused on realistic solutions and outcomes. Aggressive yet professional. My name is J.R. and I was a client from 2014-2016 for my custody matter. I couldn't be happier with my outcome.

Fantastic Attorney and Law Firm
I would recommend Danielle and her firm for any of your family law needs. She was always easy to communicate with via phone, e-mail, text, etc. and she was considerate to the needs of not only myself but my children as well. All legal filings were extremely thorough and timely. Danielle was extremely professional in court hearings and with opposing counsel. If I should ever need assistance in the future I would not hesitate to hire her once again. The firm as a whole is amazing on every level. I will be forever grateful to her for everything she did for me and my family!

Divorce
Danielle has been great to work with. She took on my case mid stream as my first attorney fell ill, she jumped right in as if she had worked with me from the beginning of this long divorce of approx. 3 years. When I felt like I couldn't do it anymore she was always there with encouraging words . She has always been quick to respond to my questions and concerns and to put my mind at ease when in doubt. I greatly appreciate all of her hard efforts into getting my situation resolved and being not only my attorney but now a great friend. Her hard work has paid off and I am thankful that she was my attorney during this most difficult time.

Complex Divorce Case
Danielle litigated a very difficult and lengthy case that went to a 7 day trial. It had immensely difficult child related issues, very complicated monetary controversies, and many emotional matters. Throughout the duration of this case, Danielle always remained fair and honest and was always overly prepared. She was up front with me about all aspects of the case so there were no total surprises one way or another. Danielle was easy to work with and I knew that she was doing everything that she could to fight for me and what was best for both me and my children.

Recommendation for Danielle Carter
Danielle has been our attorney for more than 6 years. She continually looks out for the best interests of the parties involved. Along with her vast knowledge, she is very patient and clearly explains all steps of the process. Danielle is down to earth and ensures we have a clear understanding of potential outcomes. Unfortunately, there have been several instances where we have had to contact Danielle on the weekends due to situations that have arisen. She has always been accessible and helpful, even though it was the weekend.

Incredible Attorney!
Danielle is an incredible attorney whose knowledge, expertise, professionalism, compassion and relationships within the court system were instrumental in ensuring the protection of my daughter over the last 3 years while going through a custody dispute. I highly recommend Danielle to anyone needing legal services of this kind and will continue to use her myself.
