MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: Danielle Ciraola

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.
