Originally from Northern Idaho, Danielle is part of the firm’s workers’ compensation defense practice.  In this role, she helps clients understand the conditions and treatment recommendations for injured workers, as well as the expected recovery process.  She also participates in medical indexing and preparing initial reports about the conditions of injured workers for firm clients.  She particularly enjoys learning about medical conditions, causation, and treatment.

I enjoy helping keep the workers’ compensation process honest. Workers injured on the job are fully entitled to the benefits provided under statute, but it is crucial that benefits be allocated according to the legislative intent so that sufficient funds will be available for workers legitimately deserving of such benefits.

Prior to joining the firm, Danielle’s practice included criminal prosecution, family law, and criminal defense, as well as lobbying efforts for public safety, workers’ rights, and agricultural policy.

Since moving from Idaho, Danielle has fallen in love with the Portland area.  She greatly enjoys going to small venues for live music, reading forensic anthropology and true crime novels, and experiencing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. As an avid outdoor enthusiast, Danielle also enjoys shooting, fishing, and hiking.
