Attorney

Danielle Bruno is originally from Grand Island, New York. In 2012, she earned her Bachelor’s degree from University at Buffalo where her internships included the Niagara Falls Police Department and the Erie County District Attorney’s office.

Danielle went on to earn her Juris Doctor from Florida Coastal in Jacksonville, Florida, where she was a Dean’s Scholar, editor on the Law Review, and completed internships with the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Florida and the Jacksonville Human Rights Commission. Danielle also attended the University at Buffalo’s Law School where she interned at the Assigned Counsel Program of Buffalo and the Criminal Law Practicum.

Admitted to practice in New York, Danielle spent some time with Neighborhood Legal Services (“NLS”) before joining the William Mattar team. While at NLS, Danielle frequently appeared in Niagara County courts where she represented tenants facing eviction. She is passionate about helping people and making a difference within the community.

We asked Danielle what she likes most about her job. She said “I chose to work as an attorney at William Mattar because I thoroughly enjoy helping those in need. Not only do I find enjoyment in getting clients compensated, but I also value my time in the office with remarkable staff members. I am happy to be a part of the William Mattar team, while together; we are getting the best results possible. Making sure that we hold those accountable for their negligent acts is very important to me. It is only right to compensate individuals who have been wrongfully injured. I could not imagine a career in any other area of the law, or any other firm at that.”

When not in the office, you can find her enjoying time on the water either boating or jet skiing.
