Associate Trial Attorney

Bri Datelle joined the firm in 2021 as a clinical extern and worked in the capacity of an attorney under the California Bar's Practical Training of Law Students (PTLS) program. 

During her externship, Bri participated in trials, preliminary examinations, felony negotiations, and argued complex motions. 

While in law school, Bri worked with the renowned California Innocence Project during law school, helping to exonerate clients who were wrongfully convicted. 

Before moving to San Diego, Bri worked as a legal intern in Atlanta assisting with a variety of casework ranging from criminal defense to personal injury. In addition to her case work, she also assisted in conducting research studies on the contributing factors to mass incarceration and recidivism. Her research and work experience have provided her with invaluable insight into the systemic challenges faced by defendants in the American legal system. As an associate attorney, Bri continues to seek innovative solutions that prioritize healing and rehabilitation over outdated, primarily punitive measures. 

Outside of work, Bri volunteers with restorative-justice-based organizations that seek to spread awareness on the profound impacts of early childhood trauma and the need for trauma-informed policies throughout the justice system. In doing so, Bri aims to foster understanding, empathy, and fairness not just for her own clients, but for all individuals caught up in the legal system.
