Danielle founded DGVE law, LLC in September of 2008 with a vision for a new kind of law firm based on a philosophy of compassionately providing high quality, holistic legal services in a friendly and relaxed manner, in a comfortable setting and in an environmentally conscientious way. Danielle enjoys the privilege of working with people of all ages, in all stages of life, from all types of families, through enthusiastic referrals from clients to their friends and family members. As a mother of 4 young daughters (currently spanning a range from Kindergarten to High School), Danielle is deeply empathetic regarding the time constraints and pressing legal needs of families like her own, doing her best to make the process of obtaining legal assistance as painless as possible. Originally from Swampscott on the North Shore, Danielle earned her B.A. with honors from The George Washington University in Washington, DC. After earning her J.D. from Boston University School of Law in May of 2001, Danielle was licensed and sworn into the practice of law. She then spent 7 years working as a lawyer for national nonprofit organizations. In 2007, Danielle decided to shift practice areas and pursue her dream of starting her own law firm. Danielle serves as Immediate Past President of the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts Forum of Estate Planning Attorneys, and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Hingham Cemetery in downtown Hingham Square.
