Attorney Profile

A high-caliber litigation attorney, mediator, and Counselor at Law, Daniella earned 10.0 rating in global legal marketplaces (Avvo, Justia) and is among the <2.5% attorneys in Texas to be recognized by Super Lawyers. She currently sits at the top of Lyttle Law Firm PLLC as Managing Partner/Founding Lawyer/CEO while practicing family law, immigration, and wills and estate as attorney/counselor at law.

Previously trained at the Texas Rio Grande Legal Aid (TRLA) and Texas Attorney General (Tort Litigation Division) before becoming a qualified lawyer, Daniella provided legal assistance on immigration cases and civil personal injury and property damage suits and appeals as a law clerk.

Daniella is also a member of The College of the State Bar of Texas which, historically, only about eight percent of the licensed attorneys in Texas meet the requirements for membership and which recognizes attorneys who strive to maintain and enhance their professional skills and the quality of their practice through voluntary participation in a doubled number of hours of continuing legal education (CLE) classes annually.

She possesses a career history in customer-facing roles, and she continues to receive commendations for delivering the highest standard of client care, support, and concern.

Primed to create an impact on the community, Daniella wears a heart for public service by providing pro bono/volunteer legal services and participating in outreach events. She received the 2019 Award for Contribution to Minority Community from the Travis County Women Lawyers' Association.

Recently, she was selected as one of 50 women leaders from eight states (who seek to serve their community in the political arena) to form the 2020 inaugural class of the LBJ Women's Campaign School – a prestigious program of the University of Texas, LBJ School of Public Affairs whose goal is to increase the number of women in elected office and campaign senior staff positions, regardless of political affiliation, through training and guided practice.

Daniella stays on top of her game by demonstrating a combination of multidimensional management, people, communication, technology, and personal skills to thrive in the practice and business of law.
