Danielle Kaboudi was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and moved to Aventura, Florida when she was 8 years old. Danielle graduated magna cum laude from Florida State University in Sociology and Political Science. At FSU, Danielle did a legislative research internship during the 2014 legislative session and became even more interested in the law and in politics.
In addition to being an excellent school, Danielle decided to attend UF Law in order to diversify herself and increase her network. Further, UF Law has the best professors the state has to offer, which was a big deciding factor for Danielle.
After 1L year, Danielle split her summer in half – the first half was spent interning for the Honorable Judge Spencer Eig in the Eleventh Circuit Family Court and the other half was spent at an e-Discovery externship for Inspired Review.
In the fall of 2014, Danielle made the Alternative Dispute Resolution (“ADR”) Team and the Trial Team, ultimately competing in the Final Four negotiation competition for the ADR Team. Danielle competed in the ABA regional negotiation competition and for the fist time in UF law history, will be taking UF law to the national competition this year in San Diego, California.
Danielle has a certificate in county-level mediation training. She is the social chair for the Jewish Law Student Association and a member of the steering committee for the UF EDRM Conference. She currently has a pro-bono outstanding certificate.
This upcoming summer, Danielle will be working at the Chepenik Trushin law firm in Miami, FL doing estate planning and business litigation.
Other than law school, Danielle’s interests include traveling, ice-skating, cooking, horseback riding, watching plays, and watching movies.
