Having been born and raised in Edmonton, I have strong roots in this city and province. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with distinction from the University of Alberta in 2000.  After a few years working in the private sector, I went to law school knowing that I wanted to be a criminal defence lawyer. I attended Queen’s University Law School as they offered many courses in criminal law and supervised the Queen’s Legal Aid clinic, which offers legal services to low-income residents.  I volunteered and worked for Queen’s Legal Aid in all three years of law school, obtaining the Robinson-Ryan Award for service in my final year of law school in 2007.  Since being licensed to practice law in Alberta in 2008, I have represented over 2000 clients in all three levels of court in Alberta.  Currently I am on the executive board for the Criminal Trial Lawyers Association in Edmonton, Alberta.

My philosophy is to empower my clients to make informed decisions about their matters by providing objective research-based legal opinions.  To that end, I stay on top of developments in my field of practice by continually reviewing court decisions, attending seminars and conferences, and keeping informed of developments to the Criminal Code and related statutes.

Danielle came to the rescue!

I was going through a horrible experience trying to deal with a refusal to blow charge. I immediately hired the first lawyer I could find, being scared and not knowing what I was dealing with. Turns out this lawyer would not answer my calls, texts or emails.

As my trial date was coming close I knew I needed to do something and fast. I went and spoke with another attorney and that was when Danielle was recommended to me. She took the time out of her weekend to meet with me, and from the moment I sat down and started talking with her my mind was put at ease. She was very kind and well-informed on the situation. I hired her right on the spot and from then on whenever I tried contacting her she was always there to answer any questions or even just to calm my nerves. She was prepared and well organized going into trial, and I am happy to say I am driving again!

I would strongly recommend Danielle to anyone who is going through this unfortunate circumstance.

As a dad, I had full custody of of my two kids. In a desperate attempt to regain custody of our kids, my estranged wife alleged that I had sexually assaulted her causing bodily harm. I was devastated. I spend 30 days in the Remand Center, and my kids went to my family during that time. I hired Danielle Boivert to represent me. Best decision I ever made. She thoroughly explained my options and suggested the best course of action. She went through the steps to take, the trial process, and all the little things in between that I would expect at the trial. The jury selection was an added embarrassment.

At trial, she successfully outmaneuver and outwitted the crown at every turn. She cross examined the main witness, my estranged wife, so expertly, that no other witnesses (including myself) had to testify. Danielle had exposed her in so many lies, that the crown dropped the charge!! She preformed a miracle that had saved me and my 2 kids. I would recommend her for anyone facing any criminal charge. She has a keen intellect, an unbelievable memory, and, she actual cares about her client. Best outcome for a real nightmare.
