Daniela Labinoti is not your typical trial advocacy attorney in El Paso—her qualifications set her apart, and her story is one of inspiration. After escaping civil war in Albania in 1997, over 22 years later, she is one of the most recognized and awarded attorneys in the city. She has been awarded Super Lawyer Texas Rising Star 2017-2019, won Top 100 Verdicts in Texas in 2016, has one of the highest employment discrimination verdicts in New Mexico, and is consistently rated in the top three employment and personal injury lawyers in El Paso.
She emphasizes that, “I think our results speak higher than any award or advertisement ever could.” Also, as to discrimination and wrongful termination cases, Daniela says: “I am proud that my partner, Mr. Duke and I, go above and beyond to get clients great results.” She believes her specialization, practicing exclusively in employment and personal injury law, has honed her skills as an attorney within those fields. Her experience in overcoming hardships has proven her more than capable in helping others overcome their own legal hardships, right here in El Paso and Las Cruces. “I would call myself a lawyer with a heart,” she said. “I am blessed that I have been given the opportunity to be a warrior of justice and I hope to continue to do it for a long time.”
