As a first year law student, she worked for the prestigious Brooklyn Defender Services during Alternative Spring Break, and she has also served as research assistant, Professor Jane Rindsberg. Danielle has served as President of RWU Law’s Moot Court Board, as an intern to the Honorable Maureen KcKenna Goldberg of the Rhode Island Supreme Court, as an intern to the Honorable John J. McConnell, Jr. of the U.S. District Court of the District of Rhode Island.
