Danny Little Joins CASA of Monterey County Board of Directors

Noland Hamerly is pleased to announce that attorney Danny Little has joined the Board of Directors of CASA of Monterey County, a vital resource for local foster youth. Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASAs) are volunteers from the community who advocate for abused or neglected children placed in foster care, standing by their side as stable adults they can count on as they go through the foster care system. CASA of Monterey County trains these volunteers, pairs them with specific children, and supports them as they uphold children’s rights while pursuing a safe and permanent home.

Mr. Little was drawn to CASA’s Board by a family connection – his mother serves as a CASA in Danny’s home state of Texas.  He stated, “I am particularly interested in CASA because I’ve been able to see the powerful, tangible impact CASA can have on a child’s life through my mother’s service as a court appointed special advocate.  I’m hopeful that I will be able to make a similar impact for children in our community through CASA of Monterey County.”

The Noland Hamerly firm has a long-held commitment to community service, and most of its 14 attorneys serve one or more non-profit and civic organizations.  Said senior attorney Christine Kemp, “Danny’s choice of CASA continues our firm’s tradition of giving back to the community.”

Mr. Little’s practice focuses on business and real estate transactions, real property issues, and healthcare matters for clients on the Central Coast.  Danny and his wife, Amanda, a Salinas native, moved from Austin, Texas to Monterey County in 2018.  Danny holds a Bachelor of Business Administration (2011) and Juris Doctorate (2015) from the University of Texas. In addition to CASA, he volunteers with California Rodeo Salinas.

Founded in 1928, Noland, Hamerly, Etienne & Hoss represents both plaintiffs and defendants in civil litigation, complex business matters, sophisticated estate and tax planning strategies, real estate and development transactions, water rights, land use, and environmental compliance; providing diverse services to individuals, families and businesses in Monterey, Santa Cruz and San Benito counties.
