About Daniel

Learn Daniel’s areas of practice.

Danny Luneau was born and raised in Slidell, Louisiana, a suburb of New Orleans. He attended college at Southeastern Louisiana University and graduated in the top 5% percent of his class with a Bachelor of Arts degree in History. Danny was also inducted in the university’s Thirteen Club for outstanding academic achievement. After college, Danny attended Loyola University New Orleans College of Law, where he was a member of the Moot Court Program and Trial Advocacy Program. During Danny’s third year of law school, he was selected to participate in the Loyola Clinical Program, where he was sworn into the practice of law and was allowed to represent criminal defendants charged with felony crimes.

While in the clinical program, Danny achieved successful results in every case he was assigned, including not guilty verdicts in armed robbery, illegal possession of weapons, and drug possession. Danny also successfully argued a pretrial motion that resulted in the indefinite postponement of a pending second degree murder trial. The case was argued all the way to the Louisiana Supreme Court. Danny graduated from Loyola in the top 8% of his law school class, earning the designation of “William L. Crowe Scholar.” Danny was recruited to join the law firm of Charles L. Fife & Associates, P.C. upon graduation from law school, and now exclusively practices criminal defense.

Since working at Charles L. Fife & Associates, Danny has worked on hundreds of DUI and drug cases, winning not guilty verdicts in DUI, DUID, DWAI, Driving with Excessive Alcohol Content, Prohibited Use of Weapons (while intoxicated), and Threats to Injury Persons or Damage Property. Danny has also successfully dismissed or deferred prosecutions on various felony and misdemeanor charges.

Recently, Danny, along with several other attorneys, was asked to submit an Amicus Curie Brief on behalf of the Colorado Criminal Defense Bar regarding a DUI case currently before the Colorado Supreme Court. The case involves the admission of blood alcohol reports. Danny has gained notoriety for his expertise in blood alcohol reports as one of his DUI cases helped expose over 1,700 erroneous blood tests conducted by the Colorado State Laboratory. Danny has also published an article in The Colorado Lawyer regarding the admission of blood alcohol reports in DUI cases.

Excellent representation
Danny & his team provided honest and very accurate analysis of my charges. They carefully reviewed all the video cams, blood tests, and written reports. He was able to dismiss all but one charge - and that was finalized at a lesser charge. He correctly advised me of the potential outcome, financial obligations, and court ordered requirements. He represented me to the DMV and got all of those charges dismissed. He was available for consultations and all my questions / concerns. Highly recommend Danny to take on your case.

Very happy with my representation
I interviewed a couple of other firms before I chose Danny Luneau. At my intake appointment, Danny started asking questions about my arrest that no other attorney had asked. I felt right away that I was being listened to and that he would be acting in my best interest. I agree with other reviewers that communication from both Danny and his team was fast, professional and helpful. I was able to avoid jail time, as I hoped, and Danny even helped out when I missed an intake date.

Worth Every Penny
Danny and his paralegal Jennifer handled my case and I couldn't be more happy with my representation. I was in a situation where I had many charges against me, including a DUI. Within 10 minutes of sitting down on court, Danny had a deal hammered with the Prosecutor to drop all charges except the minor traffic infraction. Danny and Jennifer kept me in the loop at every step of the way and they always answer their phone or return your call-- a rarity with lawyers. Furthermore, it couldn't be more clear that the judge and Prosecutor of iulpin county respected Danny's tenure and the quality of his past arguments. That goes a long way. Gilpin county is notoriously difficult but Danny made it look easy. This firm is worth every penny. Don't cheap out on some pro forma lawyer. Protect you future and hire this firm!

Absolutely Excellent
Danny is second to none when it comes to helping his clients. He offers advice, helps you through the entirety of the process, and is honest and caring to your situation. You are not just a number to Danny and he will work tirelessly to get you the best possible outcome in your case. You need to hire Danny Luneau. I put my faith and trust into Danny and I am extremely happy with not only the outcome, but the amount of work he dedicated to my case. I'm forever grateful.

Danny "THE REAL DEAL" Luneau
This SUPER LAWER is truely just that !! Sharp as a tack, very aggressive, very thorough and on point.. He won't give you false hope or suger coat your situation just to manipulate a person to hire him because he dosn't need to. He is genuinely a honest professional that's not in any desperate need for clients or your money. If he dosn't knock your case out of the park, he will really push for a great plea bargin and likely return a good deal of your money, and he's worth every penny!! I can attest to that on two occasions and that's "the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help me God"!!! I can't wait to hear about him in future news reports. Extremely impressed with my guy!!

SUPER LAWYER AND CLIENT CHAMPION
I chose Danny Luneau to represent me after I read his reviews on Google. They were all positive. I had been charged with harassment. However, I had been lied on by the so-called victim and by the other witness whom both knew each other. I was disappointed by that and because the plaintiff broke a traffic law and escalated the incident, yet I too played a part in the verbal altercation which is my lesson to learn. Nevertheless, Danny Luneau was able to explain to the DA what really happened with the evidence that I gave him. Now, I understand why Danny has a long list of positive reviews and was awarded Client Champion this year by Martindale Hubbell. Danny Luneau was able to get my case dismissed with prejudice after I fulfill a few stipulations within 6 months, and the court will dismiss the case as if it never happened. I am truly grateful for the efforts that Danny made in my case to the DA because I prefer to be on the right side of the law than the wrong side of the law. Thank you, Danny Luneau. You are both A SUPER LAWYER and A CLIENT CHAMPION.

One in a Million!
Let me start by saying that I have unfortunately had to use Danny as my lawyer twice... The first time was several years ago for a DUI, let's just say I was in a lot of trouble but with Danny's confidence in the case he put my mind at ease and was incredible throughout the process! Danny fought for me and I was more than pleased with the outcome!!! The second time I needed his service was this year i had moved in with a girl and things went south fast! Needless to say dyring an argument the police had been called and I was charged with multiple offences... Once again Danny Luneau to the rescue he was tremendous in dealing with my court case and as always kept me informed through the process, at the end of my case I was charged with one offense a misdemeanor! Danny is an amazing lawyer and his firm Fife Luneau P.C. are very professional! I cannot say enough about the gratitude I have for Danny! If you are looking for an attorney look no further and make the call to Fife Luneau and ask for Danny!

Danny Luneau - amazing DUI lawyer
Danny Luneau is an exceptional lawyer with a superior grasp of DUI law. He has great communication skills, and he always kept in contact with me in a timely manner throughout my case. This was very important, as the experience had many stressful moments. My case had a motions hearing and eventually went in front of a jury. I was able to observe and evaluate Danny's preparation, knowledge and skill as a litigator. He did an absolutely fantastic job in every aspect of my case. If you find yourself in need of a superior attorney, do yourself a favor and contact Danny Luneau.

Excellent Attorney!!
Mr. Luneau took on my DUI case and got me the best results that were possible. He was affordable and keeps in contact with you with everything throughout the case. This was my second offense and was concerned about jail time and being able to keep my job. He worked really well with the judge and in explaining my work/life situations. He got me in home detention which let me still go to work and maintain my job through all of this. He also got me the minimal sentencing on community service and things of that nature. I used to think attorneys were kind of a waste of money in cases like these, but after seeing everything he did for me, I have a whole new opinion. I would recommend him for any defense cases, and will be recommending him to anyone I come in contact with.

Beyond Amazed
Mr Luneau did the impossible. I had a very difficult case to prove my innocence. Danny obtained a not guilty verdict in my case. I have dealt with many lawyers over the years, and I say Danny is one of the best legal minds I have ever met. He is compassionate, non judgmental and never gave up. His courtroom tactics were amazing. I just can not say how impressed I was with him. His arguments were beyond compelling and he found the little details it takes to win a case. My case was won on a small detail that no one noticed but Danny. He is dedicated to his clients. I can not thank him enough for his service to me. His court room performance is something you only see on tv. Not guilty on DUI.

This is the lawyer you want! Do NOT take the old guy with white hair!
This is the lawyer you want. My one friend told me about him, she said he's the only honest and smart lawyer in Denver. He does a GREAT job and he's not afraid to get up and fight for you in court. warning: The secretary or whoever will totally try and switch you to the old lawyer with white hair. Do NOT settle for the old guy, you want THIS guy, this lawyer is named Danny and he is young with dark hair. THIS guy is the guy who wins, he won two trials and one dmv thing, I am so grateful and so are my two friends he represented also. Thank you Danny Luneau, you are the best lawyer and you ROCK!!!

Tenacious, Formible and Prepared
Tenacious, formidable and prepared are 3 words that describe Mr Luneau! When he sees injustice he doesn't stop until he subpoenas every possible resource that could vindicate his client. His cross examining skills are refined and quite savvy. He is able to get police officer to say exactly what he needs to strengthen his case! In my instance, the cop didn't even show up to trial. Blatantly retreating to Florida and calling the DA the morning of the trial to say she wasn't coming. Wow! Judge dismissed. Danny was victorious once again! I'm so thankful that I chose for my attorney.

Amazing Results!
I was charged with my fourth dui and Mr. Luneau convinced a jury that I was not guilty! I was facing two years in jail and would have lost everything if I was convicted. I highly recommend this law firm!
