About Danielle

Learn Danielle’s areas of practice.

Prior to joining Essig & Evans LLP, I served as a law clerk for nearly five years to the Honorable Judge Jon H. Sieve, Hamilton County Court of Domestic Relations.  I limit my practice exclusively to family law.  I am also trained as a Guardian Ad Litem.

I am passionate about the practice of Family Law because it gives me the opportunity to work directly with clients and help them navigate through the difficult and emotional period of transition.  From my experience, I know the importance of educating and empowering clients to make sound decisions about their personal and financial futures.

Highest Recommendation
No matter how prepared I thought I was for my separation, realistically I wasn't and that's why I was so thankful/fortunate to have Danielle on my side. Not only did she manage the process and work tirelessly on my behalf, but she helped keep my expectations in check. Instead of allowing my emotions to make decisions, she always helped me think thru what the issue was and consider both the short and long term impact/benefits. When the separation was over, I felt comfort knowing I had the best representation I could have hoped for and I owe that all to Danielle and her firm.

Expert in Her Field
For 17 years, I did not receive the knowledgeable representation I so desperately needed to help my daughter. In comes Danielle, who not only knew exactly what she was doing, but was sensitive to my needs and my daughter’s needs. She spent countless months preparing for trial, and handled a difficult trial with grace and expertise. She effectively and impressively handled the difficult opposing lawyer and helped me receive the ruling I had hoped for and needed. She protected my best interests, but also those of my daughter, and for that I thank her from the bottom of my heart. My daughter’s quality of life has immediately improved for the better, all thanks to Danielle Levy. I highly recommend her services.

Wonderful Attorney!!
Danielle has been such an amazing lawyer to me! I was separated for sometime before filing- thought doing it on my own would be ok…ha! I could NOT have done it without her and her team! She got me divorced and custody of my babies!! Most importantly my babies!!! She is a hard worker and was a very dedicated lawyer!! Her team is also super dedicated to their clients as well! I would highly highly recommend her!

Divorced and happy!!
Danielle did a wonderful job explaining the process and carefully guiding me to a fair settlement not one balanced for his benefit. She was kind, knowledgeable, great listener, professional and very supportive. She made a difficult situation easy and I felt cared for as an individual. Thank you to Danielle and her amazing staff!! I appreciate them and recommend them as they were recommended to me! Five stars for sure!!

Amazing Work
When I came to Danielle with my case I was drowning in stress and overwhelmed with fear. The first thing she said was I will let you know if you need to worry. Something as small as that stuck with me throughout the entire process. I had made mistakes not with bad intent and she knew that. When I went to court it was the hardest day of my life to that point to make sure that I got my points across so that my daughters best interest was shown before the court. Before I even testified Danielle was able to have half or more of the exhibits from the other side tossed out and the opposition didn’t have a leg to stand on. I was more than impressed at what she was able to bring to the court room. We won the case and my daughters life did not have to get all jumbled up again. I had no idea what to expect going into everything but she knew exactly what needed done and took great care of me as her client. I will no doubt turn to her again for any help that I need in the future. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who is going through family court. Rest assured that she will do her best work for all of her clients and that you or anyone close to you would be in the best of hands with Danielle. I am so thankful for all of the help, advice, and hard work she has put in for my family and I.

Excellent Communication
I was referred to Ms. Levy by an atty in Kentucky to handle a domestic relations case between me and my ex-wife. She was easy to communicate with and was very quick to respond. My outcome was extremely favorable. Glad I hired Ms. Levy to represent me

Danielle Levy is a fantastic lawyer
If you have to get divorced, the collaborative dissolution is the way to go. It is a way to end a relationship with respect and honor. It is hard enough to end a marriage relationship. The collaborative process was the least traumatizing for me. Danielle was an integral part of the process. She was very kind, highly communicative and encouraging. Most of all, she didn't let anything get by her. Now that the dissolution is final, I feel like I was heard and protected!!! No one wants to get divorced but if this is the direction you are unfortunately headed in, I highly recommend Danielle Levy legal services.

WONDERFUL, WONDERFUL & WONDERFUL!
From the first moment I spoke with Danielle I was completely comfortable! She took the time to genuinely listen and take notes and it was only the initial inquiry! I decided to take some time to think about moving forward. When I called Danielle back she immediately answered and called me by my name. It felt as if we had known each other for a while. Due to her taking notes during our initial call we were able to pick up right where we left off. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, understanding and efficient! Her turnaround time is unparalleled! She is professional, personable and punctual! I have already recommended her to a friend needing assistance and I would highly, highly recommend Danielle to anyone else needing assistance. Her paralegal team is amazing as well. Everyone helped answer any questions I had, explained all of the steps and did not delay on handling paperwork. All of my friends and family said that this was the smoothest and fastest divorce they have ever seen. I know that's due to such an amazing team! Divorce in my case was definitely a stressful and traumatic ordeal but having Danielle and her team working on my behalf gave me peace through the process! I consider myself truly blessed to have come across her profile.

Danielle is an amazing Lawyer!!
I had a very difficult contested divorce with an Impossible Ex. Prior to hiring Danielle, I had another attorney for two years and he basically did not help me with anything. Danielle was referred to me when I was looking to change my attorney. At my first consultation with Danielle, I knew she was right for me. She treated me like a friend and comforted me in many difficult situations. It was clear to me that she cared about me and my daughter from the beginning. Basically, within one month of hiring Danielle I started receiving child support which my prior attorney couldn’t do in two years. Danielle Levy is an excellent attorney, she is very hard working, loyal and very passionate towards her work. She did a wonderful job representing me during my divorce hearings. I was so impressed with how much preparation she has done for the trial. I was not at all scared in the court room as I had Danielle on my side. She cares a lot about her clients, she made sure that I was comfortable in the courtroom. She is very quick in responding to emails, calls or any questions I had. She doesn’t care about money at all. There were several situations where she would have increased her income, but she would always say upfront that it would cost me more with no better results. She always suggested me to choose less expensive path with better outcome. I believe I got the best possible outcome for my situation. I think it would have not been possible without Danielle. I was ready to give up so many times, but she kept fighting for me and my daughter. Thank you for the effort and hard work you put into my case and thank you so much for everything you have done for me and my daughter. We pray God will bless you and your family. I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who needs an attorney to represent them in a divorce case!!! I would hire her again for any family law representation in the future.

Awesome representation
Getting divorced isn’t easy. It can be crazy and lonely. However, no one should stay in a toxic marriage. Being married to a narcissist is hard, divorcing one is harder. I knew I’d need someone who was mentally strong, mentally tough, and who’d fight for me. After I met Danielle, I knew she was the right person to represent me. I really appreciate her listening to my concerns and checking on me mentally throughout the process. (Divorce can take a toll on you mentally.) She was my voice when I needed to be heard. She kept fighting for me even when I was ready to give up. She’d tell me “I’ll take care of it.” and I knew whatever I was dealing with, she’d handle it. I appreciate her so much for being there and getting the job done!

Excellent legal representation!
Danielle Levy did a wonderful job representing me during my divorce proceedings! Not only is Danielle extremely sharp and knowledgeable regarding family law, she is also a kind and compassionate person, which helped me to feel more comfortable during this difficult process. She never failed to impress me with her ability to propose sound, rational responses to problems that came up during the 3-year period that she represented me. Danielle is also a very good listener who always got back to me promptly to address any questions or concerns that I had. When any challenging situation arose regarding the divorce, it was so reassuring to know that Danielle had my back, and that we would be able to work through whatever the problem was that had presented. At the same time, Danielle was always sensitive to the financial implications for me of any particular action we considered taking. There were several occasions when she recommended against a particular course of action because she felt it would result in higher costs for me with little chance of a better outcome, even though it would have increased her revenue if we had gone down the more expensive path. Danielle intervened very effectively on my behalf both in her interactions with the court and when negotiating the terms of the agreement with my ex- wife’s attorney. There were multiple occasions when she was able to shift the direction of the proceedings in a way that was much more favorable to me. As a result of Danielle’s hard work and excellent counsel, we were able to achieve a separation agreement that was fair for both parties, despite numerous obstacles being thrown at us during the course of the proceedings. To summarize, I would highly recommend Danielle to anyone who needs an attorney to represent them in a divorce case or any other matter pertaining to family law!

Exceptional and Effective
Danielle far exceeded my expectations as my divorce attorney. She is detail oriented and very capable in handling complex financials. As busy as she is, she was never too busy to speak with me and address my questions. I believe that I am financially set now because she was my attorney, I got more than I expected. I could not recommend her highly enough.

Trustworthy and Professional
Danielle made a very hard situation much better by keeping me informed and giving me the advice that I needed. Danielle described exactly what would happen and how it would happen, and always made sure I understood what was going on and that I was involved in the final decision making. As busy as she is, she always made time for me and got back to me quickly when I had questions. Having Danielle by my side put me at ease during an incredibly stressful time in my life. I believe I got the best possible outcome for my situation, and I couldn’t have gotten through this without her.

Simply the best
After my first consultation with Danielle at the beginning of this difficult process, I knew she was the right fit for me. Danielle exemplified everything professional, compassionate, knowledgeable and supportive. She was able to help me feel completely comfortable and 100% trusted her and her judgment. Danielle was instrumental in helping me through such a painful process. I would highly recommend her!

Best lawyer
Danielle is brilliant, professional, communicative and was extremely helpful at all stages throughout my divorce process. This was an extremely stressful and scary time for me. Danielle helped me determine the best outcome for me and my children, and protected my most valuable assets. I could not recommend Danielle highly enough!

Great Lawyer
From first consultation she was very knowledgeable, considerate and empathetic. I never felt rushed or like a client. Felt like a friend! Would recommend her to anybody. She refused to let you do things that you would regret later.

We hired Danielle to represent us in a situation we had to address immediately. Danielle was very professional, timely, and great with sticking to the facts of the case. Due to her great work, our case was resolved in our favor. Highly Recommend her and if needed, we would hire her for representation in the future.

Sales & Marketing
Danielle stepped into a collaborative situation 1 month in after I fired my first attorney. He basically was not representing me to anyone's advantage but his and my ex husband. Danielle is bright, hard working, loyal, well versed on the law and completely professional. I admire her and hiring her was the best decision I made after the first lawyer basically told me I would end up in a disgusting one bedroom apartment. Danielle came in took over and I ended up in the best scenario based on my ex husbands current financial situation. She accomplished all of this in 2 months. It was inexpensive and as painless as a divorce would allow. If you had 10 stars I would be rating her with that instead of 5. Her compassion and devotion to her profession and her client's well being is invaluable. We still have a friendship and have given her name to many people. Her firm is very fortunate to have her on their team

Danielle and her staff were attentive and accommodating. An absolute pleasure to work with during such a difficult time...worked magic in the courtroom and had my case wrapped up within the hour on said day! Their office was referred to me, and I've already refererred them to two others! Your attorney can make or break the process for you...
