Senior ParalegalDanielle Leppar is a Senior Paralegal in the firm’s Pittsburgh and West Virginia Offices.
Danielle has been a Paralegal with Chaffin Luhana since 2013 and currently serves as the firm’s Senior Case Manager focusing primarily on Personal Injury and Premises Liability cases. She started her career in the legal field in 2005 working for a plaintiff’s firm in Akron, Ohio. Danielle loves being a part of the Chaffin Luhana team and advocates the firm’s core value of “Doing Good by Doing Right.” She makes clients a priority by working diligently to help resolve their cases as efficiently as possible.
Danielle attended college at Kent State University where she majored in Psychology. She has always been an avid traveler and has visited several countries alongside her husband, with intentions of seeing the world. When she isn’t working or traveling, she enjoys being outdoors, cooking, and spending time at home with their animals.
For 2018 and 2019, Danielle nominated the Animal Welfare Institute (AWI) for her Chaffin Luhana Foundation Charity Donation. Danielle’s contribution will help support AWI with the numerous programs aimed at helping animals. These include preventing pets from being used in research facilities, banning steel traps which can harm pets, ending the dog meat trade and puppy mills, and efforts to minimize the impacts of all human actions detrimental to endangered species.
In 2020, Danielle’s Chaffin Luhana Foundation Charity donations were to A Little Bit of Snuggles Dog Rescue, Inc. Founded in 2003, this rescue travels around the US rescuing dogs and cats and are a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization supporting NO-KILL shelters. 95% of the animals come from shelters that are full to capacity and need assistance. Once rescued, the animals are fostered in a home environment, or boarding kennel, and receive all necessary veterinary care, with a goal to find them a loving and permanent home. This organization relies heavily on donations to support their efforts, and I am so fortunate that the company I work for supports this cause.
