Former LVK Partner Danielle Hunsaker Confirmed for Ninth Circuit

November 6, 2019

The attorneys and staff of Larkins Vacura Kayser are honored and delighted that our former partner Danielle Hunsaker has been confirmed by the United States Senate for a seat on the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Along with the other federal circuit courts of appeals, the Ninth Circuit is below only the U.S. Supreme Court in our federal court system.

Judge Hunsaker joined LVK as an associate attorney in 2009. She became a partner in 2014, and remained with our firm until she was appointed to the Washington County bench in December 2017.

While practicing law here, Judge Hunsaker handled a heavy caseload of civil litigation matters, while also teaching at Lewis and Clark Law School, doing pro bono legal work, and making great contributions to various bar and civic organizations. In addition to providing great legal service to the firm’s clients, she was a mentor to our more junior attorneys and a friend to everyone in the firm.
