Danielle Whiteman, Esq.

Zubrow Fellow

Danielle Whiteman joined Juvenile Law Center in September 2016 as the fifteenth Sol and Helen Zubrow Fellow in Children’s Law. As a Fellow, Danielle supports all aspects of Juvenile Law Center’s child welfare and juvenile justice work. 

Danielle graduated from New York University School of Law, where she served as a Publication Editor for the Review of Law and Social Change, co-chair of the Alternative Breaks program, and Secretary of the Women of Color Collective.

Danielle was one of nine students selected to participate in the Juvenile Defender Clinic led by Professor Randy Hertz, and one of fifteen students selected to participate in the Criminal Defense and Reentry Clinic led by Professors Anthony Thompson and Kim Taylor-Thompson. Danielle also worked as a summer intern in the Brooklyn office of the Legal Aid Society’s Juvenile Rights Practice.

Prior to law school, Danielle worked at Eastern Senior High School in Washington, D.C., first as a co-teacher and later as the Coordinator of Student Affairs. During that time, she began the “Easternship” summer internship program, which helped students develop employment skills through placements with local companies.

Danielle graduated from Boston College with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a minor in Sociology.  Danielle is an alumna scholar of the Jackie Robinson Foundation and is passionate about reforming both the education and juvenile justice systems.
