MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Danielle Ciraola

Co-chair of the Young Lawyer’s Committee, Danielle began her involvement with the BWBA in 2018 as a mentee in our mentorship program. Danielle concentrates her practice in real estate administrative law, primarily advising property owners on how to best navigate legal issues related to rent-regulated properties in New York.  She is an Associate with the law firm of Kucker Marino Winiarsky & Bittens, LLP.

Who or what inspired you to become an attorney?

In my last year of college, I took a media law class and realized the history of rights surrounding the First Amendment was something I was passionate about. This introduction to the law inspired me to pursue a transformational path.

How did you get into administrative real estate law? Why did you choose it?

 While I was a law student I interned with the legal departments of two New York State agencies. I enjoyed the practice of administrative law and appreciated its effects on the community. When starting my career, administrative real estate law felt like a natural progression. Now, I find it gratifying to advise clients on administrative law processes in our state.

What is a fun fact about you?

I lived on the Caribbean island of Saba for a short time. I had the opportunity to experience a different culture, which included attending elementary school, taking piano lessons, and learning to speak some Dutch.
