Danielle M. Waltz is a Member in the Banking, Construction, and Government industry groups, focusing primarily on litigation and government relations. She practices out of the Firm’s office in Charleston, West Virginia.
Danielle has a wide range of legal experience, including handling complex multi-party construction matters and litigating commercial banking cases. With many of her clients in the construction industry, she knows the business side of construction as well as the law. Danielle is a natural problem solver who enjoys helping her clients find solutions to their issues, which oftentimes requires tenacity and out-of-the-box thinking.
Danielle has published and lectured on construction matters, including authoring the West Virginia portion of the 2009 Defense Research Institute Desk Reference. She is extensively involved in the Defense Research Institute Construction Law Group, holding several leadership positions through the years, including National Seminar Chair.
She also has a great deal of experience in government relations – providing services for local, state, and national business clients. Her government relations clients count on her to help them navigate the passage or defeat of legislation and to develop rapport with elected officials and government agencies. Danielle is the perfect person for this, as she’s a people-person who likes connecting with others. She has a definite knack for bringing people together for mutually beneficial partnerships.
Danielle is a proud native of West Virginia’s Northern Panhandle and takes fierce pride in its signature DiCarlo's Pizza. She holds her undergraduate degree in mathematics from West Virginia University and likes solving math problems for fun. She also holds a law degree from WVU, so it’s no surprise she’s a big fan of WVU sports. On weekends, if she's not cheering on the Mountaineers, you're likely to find her playing squash or exercising. With her quick smile and genuine warmth, Danielle is always the most winning person in the room – despite the fact that she exercises and does math for fun.
