Danielle A. Perez, Esq., Associate Attorney at The Morgan Law Group, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of law.
Attributing her success to her parents, who instilled in her a strong work ethic and high morals, Ms. Perez has dedicated her young career to helping people deal with complicated issues. As an associate attorney and law clerk with the Morgan Law Group since 2022, she represents individuals and businesses in civil litigation, personal injury, unemployment, and property insurance claims cases—both commercial and residential alike. She previously cut her teeth in the legal field as a file clerk, legal intern, secretary, legal assistant, and paralegal with such firms as Farrell, Patel, Jomarron & Lopez, Aronberg, Aronberg & Green, White & Twombly, P.A., and Remer, Georges-Pierre & Hoogerwoerd, PLLC.
Equipped with a Bachelor of Arts in sociology, with a minor in political science and criminal justice, from Florida Atlantic University, Ms. Perez pursued her law degree at St. Thomas University College of Law—where she excelled in numerous mock trial competitions and displayed remarkable trial advocacy skills in a hybrid of virtual and in-person hearings, for which she earned many recognitions. She earned a Merit Scholarship, a C. Clyde Atkins Memorial Scholarship, and, most notably, the Order of Barristers—which is only given to a select few students. Balancing her academia with work at law firms, as well as serving as the Student Articles Editor for the university’s Intercultural Human Rights Law Review, she graduated with a Juris Doctor in 2022 and was subsequently admitted to the Florida Bar.
It was in 2017 that Ms. Perez gravitated toward a focus on homeowner insurance when family members of hers located in Puerto Rico were impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. In addition, she experienced many storms and hurricanes herself as a Florida native, and has found that these damages tend to leave homeowners with minimal options; she has been determined to serve as a strong advocate for her clients in need by recovering their assets. She takes great pride in being able to see her clients satisfied after they reached a settlement. Holding a Certification of Completion in Disaster Lawyering by the Equal Justice Works Disaster Relief Program, she has also been active as a member of the American Association for Justice, Florida Justice Association, Miami Dade Trial Lawyers Association, Federal Bar Association, and American Bar Association.
Looking toward the future, Ms. Perez strives to open her own firm, where she could utilize her experience in every type of role and would have a hands-on approach to training the legal staff. Outside of her primary legal endeavors, she contributes her time and efforts to St. Thomas University’s Center for Pandemic, Disease, and Quarantine Research, and enjoys dancing, practicing yoga, meditating, cooking, and taking part in outdoor activities.
