Phenomenal Attorney!
As a father, Danielle was amazing at handling all aspects of my legal matters. She is extremely knowledgeable, a great listener, and very tough in court. Her experience and expertise made me comfortable in knowing she was ready for everything we encountered throughout litigation. Danielle fought hard for me to win a legal battle that I thought would never end, gave me peace of mind, and most of all, helped my family. She is an absolutely phenomenal attorney that I would highly recommend!

Danielle Mays- Your Greatest Advocate
Danielle is a fabulous attorney. She helped me through some really dark times through a nasty 2 year long custody case that seemed unbeatable and 4 criminal cases. With her excellent legal counsel, we won the custody case, and all 4 criminal cases resulted in a "clean" record after probation. She communicates extremely efficiently, is a problem solver, and the best legal advocate you can find. Honestly, she's a role model for me, and I have grown so much as a person just from being her client. I can't thank her enough for what she has done for my family and me on a personal and legal level.

Excellent lawyer
I used Danielle Mays when going through a divorce. She did an excellent job and I got the results I was hoping for. She was professional, tough, prompt, and courteous. I would highly recommend her.

She gave my life back
Mrs.Britt gave me my life back two years I was charged with a crimes that I did committ and it was the worst time of my life going back and forth to court two to three times a month I never experienced things like that in my life. I live a simple life for me that was a life changing and shocking situation and Mrs.Britt took my case and believed in me and in my case she told me to trust in her judgement and that she will help me and she will get the job done and that she did she works extremely hard for her clients and does the best for you she got two felonies drop before court started then she got all felony charges dismissed I had 5 counts of felonies against me and she worked hard filing motions, holding people in contemp, contacting whomever regarding my case, communicating with you thru out my entire case her communication skills were excellent and she did amazing job and got my entire case dismissed august 2016 she gave me my life back and now I'm starting a business and going to live my life like no other she is a life saver gods angel so if you need a criminal defense lawyer Mrs.Britt is who you should hire one again thank you Mrs.Britt from the bottom of my heart I can travel for the first time out of the country

A Job Well Done
My husband hired Danielle Britt to get a modification on his sentence after a first attempt which was denied. She worked thoroughly and gathered pertinent information to build a case. She didn't hesitate at all but listened and gave us time and effort. She fought for us from beginning to end and answered all questions we had along the way. My husbands motion was granted and we could not have asked for a better result... Thank you Danielle a job well done

I could not have picked a better attorney! Danielle is intelligent, patient and cares about you and your case. Danielle represented me on a custody case and understood the sensitive nature that comes along with you and your children. She always kept me updated real time with any happenings in our case. I could go on and on, but Danielle Britt Mays is the best choice!

Family Attorney | May 30
Relationship: Friend
"Danielle is a very knowledgeable attorney in both family law and criminal law. Danielle is truly an advocate for her clients."
Unknown Attorney | May 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Danielle Mays is a brilliant, zealous advocate for her clients."
Family Attorney | Sep 01
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Danielle and I worked together on the same side of a thorny domestic case. She is extremely knowledgeable and has the capacity of a litigator who has been in practice for many more than her actual years of admission. Besides a thorough working knowledge of the law, she is a natural in the courtroom, which does not come easy to even a lot of trial attorneys. Danielle is extremely personable and a joy to be around. Although I was glad when our very difficult case was concluded successfully, I was sorry to have our time of collaboration come to an end. If I were to need legal representation for any matter, I would not hesitate to hire Danielle for myself."
