Dani Bolong is the family law or criminal law attorney you want on your side. Before coming to The Carlson Law Firm, she worked in a boutique law firm in Southern California. She is committed to helping families in the Killeen area navigate the complexities of family law, as well as helping clients in tough criminal situations.
Dani grew up in a small coastal town in the Philippines where her grandfather was a judge. Though her grandfather passed away at a young age, he remained influential on Dani’s lifelong aspirations. The legal books he left behind fascinated Dani as a child. As she grew up, she began to realize the essential role lawyers have in society—the ability to dramatically change the course of people’s lives. Because of this, she had dreams of using the law as a tool to serve the marginalized sectors of her country.
She passionately and tirelessly represents her clients to get the best resolution possible. Clients looking for legal representation for divorce, adoption, gestational carrier agreements, embryo and egg donation agreements or criminal cases can trust that Dani will strive for excellence.
Dani is a 2015 Master of Laws graduate from Harvard Law School. Additionally, she earned her Juris Doctor from Ateneo de Manila University (2011). She received Cum Laude honors when she graduated with her Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management at Ateneo de Manila University (2007). Dani served as the youngest Associate Solicitor III (2013-2015) in the Office of the Solicitor General in the Philippines. Additionally, she worked for one of the biggest law firms in the Philippines, Puno & Puno Law Firm. Dani is licensed to practice law in New York, California, Texas and the Philippines.
She moved to the Killeen area with her husband, an airman in the U.S. Air Force. Dani has fallen in love with her local community. She hopes to spend the rest of her life in Texas with her husband.
