Danielle C. Rivera Associate




Danielle Rivera represents established businesses and individuals in all aspects of civil litigation. Her practice focuses on the defense of claims related to general liability, automobile liability, premises liability and personal injury. 

After law school, Danielle worked for a plaintiffs' firm where she gained experience that assists her with being more objective in defense work. At her plaintiff's firm, she worked on her own litigation caseload and second-chaired her first trial in less than a year of being licensed. 

In law school, Danielle served as a law clerk for a civil defense firm where she worked closely with partners and mastered practices related to insurance defense and personal injury litigation. She also clerked at the Orange County District Attorney's Office, where she worked on major cases involving insurance fraud, and later clerked at the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office where she gained courtroom experience conducting or preparing more than 50 preliminary hearings in three months. 

Prior to law school, Danielle worked in the insurance industry where she successfully resolved property damage and personal injury claims filed with her company, and eventually moved on to handle major coverage issues working closely with in-house counsel and the underwriting department on investigations for potential policy rescissions.
