Danielle J. Barraza


Danielle Barraza is an associate attorney with Maier Gutierrez & Associates. Her practice focuses on civil litigation, including business, real estate, personal injury, and employment law in federal and state courts.

During law school, Danielle was a senior staffer for the Nevada Law Journal. She also served as a law clerk for the Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada’s domestic violence unit, where she provided legal assistance to domestic abuse victims going through divorce or child custody proceedings.

While studying for her undergraduate degree, Danielle interned for the Assembly Judicial Committee at the 76th (2011) Session of the Nevada State Legislature, where she gained tremendous insight into the law-making process and the measures affecting justice courts and civil practice and procedure.

“I wanted to be an attorney since I was 12 years old,” she says, “when I saw strong female attorneys on TV.” Danielle likes the closure she can bring to her clients at the end of a case.

As a Boyd Law School alumna, she enjoys mentoring students who are interested in employment law. Personally, Danielle’s hobbies include playing tennis, trying new restaurants, traveling, and learning new languages. She is also a Vegas Golden Knights fan.
