She also represented clients who were in removal proceedings.
Daniele Volfe attended law school in Brazil at the Universidade Estadual de Maringa. In Brazil, she worked along a State Prosecutor on civil cases involving State matters by drafting motions and briefs for state trial courts. She also graduated from Southern Methodist University where she obtained her LL.M. degree in International and Comparative Law in 2010. Daniele was admitted to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas in May of 2013.
Daniele Volfe is originally from Brazil and, as an immigrant herself, she understands the struggles of dealing with the American immigration legal system. Her own immigration challenges moved her to become a passionate immigration law advocate.
