Danielle Trombly

Associate Lawyer

Danielle completed her undergraduate degree at York University in 2009. After completing a certificate in advertising and media sales at Humber, Danielle realized she was unhappy with her career path. Family reminded her that she had been telling people she was going to be a lawyer since she was a child. 


Danielle took the leap and studied at Bond University in sunny Gold Coast, Australia. Since being called to the bar in 2014, Danielle has made it her goal to find the grey areas in situations that seemed black and white. Ultimately she wants to help people in their time of need, which is what drew her to practice Criminal, Family, and Estates law.
