A legal assistant with over 24 years of experience in workers' compensation law, Danelle is the first point of contact for many new clients at Monast Law Office. A proud graduate of Briggs High School and the Northeast Career Center in Columbus, Danelle has her associate's degree in legal assisting with certification in workers' comp law from Columbus State Community College. When you call our office, you can be sure you will be speaking to a knowledgeable assistant who will answer your questions and help you get started on your claim or appeal.

Danelle's duties at Monast Law Office include intake interviews with potential clients, filing initial claims with the Bureau of Workers' Compensation (BWC), working with our settlement consultant to prepare claims for settlement, communicating with doctors to get the records and evidence necessary to file a successful claim, and making sure Jim and his clients are prepared for hearings before the Industrial Commission.

In her free time, Danelle enjoys camping at Deer Creek with her family and is an avid Stephen King fan—something she has in common with Jim! Danelle has dedicated her professional life to workers' comp law because she loves helping people who have been injured get the benefits they need to get well and return to work. She loves the quiet, family atmosphere at Monast Law Office and enjoys the challenges she comes across on a daily basis.
