Danielle Leo is a Senior Associate and Personal Injury Accredited Specialist in Maurice Blackburn’s Craigieburn office in Victoria. She specialises in providing motor vehicle accident compensation legal advice and representation for people making common law and TAC claims.
Danielle joined Maurice Blackburn more than 10 years ago. She helps her clients get their life back on track and makes them feel heard, valued and safe. Danielle changes the journey from complex to simple, enabling her clients to focus on rehabilitation.
Danielle holds Bachelor degrees in Laws and Behavioural Science from La Trobe University. She is motivated by the knowledge she can help her clients and their families during their time of greatest need.
"Transport accidents change people’s lives in a split second, affecting not only the injured person, but their family and friends, too," says Danielle.
"Accidents don’t discriminate; they affect people of different ages and all different backgrounds. If I can help these people get their life back on track, it is important that I do."
Danielle always remains focused on the bigger picture – helping her clients take charge of their future health and happiness.
"A client once told me that I 'gave her her life back'…This is what means the most to me. Helping people to obtain the medical treatment, income assistance or compensation to get their life back on track and make as much of a recovery back to their pre-accident life as normal is what inspires me most."
Danielle is the current President of the Western Suburbs Law Association.
