Daniella Smith has been working as a paralegal in the field of family law since she graduated from Northwestern University with a Master’s degree in 2018. She is a motivated professional with versatile experience in many fields including administrative, management, client relations, legal services, nonprofits, performing arts and customer service. Daniella brings her passion for learning and goals to make a positive impact on her community and the world to her paralegal position at Anderson and Boback.
Daniella was specifically inspired to work in family law because she knows she is helping everyday people work through some of the biggest and scariest changes in their life. Daniella provides compassion to all clients to help reassure people dealing with family changes such as domestic violence, divorce, proceedings related to children, and more. She is an excellent listener, well-organized and provides excellent customer service with a personal, caring touch.
What Our Client’s Say about Daniella
Our clients appreciate Daniella’s calming and compassionate ear as she gathers necessary, oftentimes difficult, information relevant to their case. She understands how difficult things like divorce can be as someone who experienced her parents’ divorce as a teenager.
Our clients appreciate her motivation to help hardworking and caring parents advocate for their children, and her dedication to help keep proceedings focused on what is best for the children rather than conflict between parents.
Beyond Being a Paralegal
When not helping clients or keeping our team organized, Daniella enjoys gardening, cooking, taking long walks and cuddling with her puppy, Pepper. Daniella also has a Bachelor’s degree in vocal music performance, and enjoys exploring the Chicago music and performing arts scene with friends and the unique Chicago neighborhoods.
As a teenager she spent a lot of time reading books and novels, so was thrilled to meet her favorite author who named a character in her next book after her. Daniella is passionate about supporting the Black Lives Matter movement, environmentalism, LGTBQA+ rights, the importance of art and music education, and much more.
