Danelle (Els) Nel
Practicing attorney in family law
Membership number: M44492

Danelle's interest in Law started in her grade 11 school year. Her high school had a project where you had to go work for three days at various firms, and give a report on how the working environment was. She worked at Vaalweekblad, their local newspaper, for three days. Journalism clearly wasn’t for her, in her favour, she was taken to the Magistrate Court in Vereeniging on her last day. This was when she realised she wanted to go into Law.

Danelle enjoys being a qualified lawyer, applying her studies in practical situations and being able to help other people who are in difficult situations, to do justice and to strive for an ethical and just future in our country.

She works hard and strives for success, which she believe makes her determined in her work. Loyalty and consistency are very important to her, and Danelle believes her personal touch and relationship with her clients are what makes her different from other lawyers.
