Counselor Dani: Reporting for Duty character explained

In Reporting for Duty, Counselor Dani is a defense attorney. She is a recurring character who shows up at the precinct whenever someone needs representation. Tenca Silva plays Dani.

Counselor Dani Junqueira first appears in the second episode of Reporting for Duty to meet the new chief, Suzano, and tell him that she can help if anyone at the precinct needs some representation.

Counselor Dani takes all kinds of cases, even if they are ridiculous. For example, she quickly chooses the side she wants to represent when the debate over the coffee machine is going on between Pardal and Zuleide.

Counselor Dani proves to be an exceptional attorney. She is intimidating, and even excellent cops such as Mantovani and Rabecão think twice when they are facing her.
