About Danielle LaBelle
Danielle LaBelle is a family attorney through and through—she has focused her practice on family law matters since the day she became a lawyer. Her goal is to help clients in critical family situations achieve a resolution that is not only advantageous to them under the law, but also leaves them feeling optimistic about their future.
"I want my clients to feel like their voice was heard and their interests were well-represented," says Danielle. "These are difficult and emotional issues. It's my job to ease their stress by tailoring my strategy to best represent the needs of each specific client, whether they need me to be aggressive on their behalf or more collaborative."
Danielle works from the McKinley Irvin Seattle office and has handled dissolutions, legal separations, child custody and child support actions, paternity actions, adoptions, modifications, and domestic violence protection orders in King, Pierce and Thurston County.
Danielle is known by her colleagues for her endless energy and strong work ethic. Her skills are amplified by her passion to help people.
"I find family law very rewarding because I'm able to help people through one of the most difficult times in their lives," she says. "After I hear their stories, I can't help but feel strongly compelled to be their advocate and protect what is most important to them."
When she's not working or rooting for WSU as a die-hard Cougars fan, Danielle enjoys spending time with her very large family.Next >>
