Daniel G. Ecker

Founding Partner

Daniel G. Ecker, a founding member of Lever & Ecker and an experienced personal injury lawyer, represents our clients with passion and great skill. Dan’s top-notch work has been recognized by the legal community, as he has been selected to the New York Metro Super Lawyers List for 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, representing recognition as among the top five percent of plaintiff’s personal injury lawyers in the New York metro area. Dan was also the 2022 Chair of the Trial Lawyers Section of the New York State Bar Association.

More importantly, perhaps, is what our clients have to say about Dan’s work on their behalf. They write of Dan’s “guidance every step of the way” and that they “were treated with the utmost care and professionalism throughout the process – from the initial consultation and continuing through the very satisfactory resolution of [their] matter – and left feeling, quite literally, like family.”

Dan leaves no stone unturned in his representation of our clients, and in his pursuit of the evidence that is needed to help our clients obtain the outcome that they deserve.

Dan received his Juris Doctor from Fordham University School of Law in 1996 and his undergraduate degree from Cornell University in 1993. He is admitted to practice before the courts of the State of New York, the United States District Court for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, and the United States Supreme Court.

Dan was the 2022 Chair of the Trial Lawyers Section of the New York State Bar Association. In that capacity, he worked with and advocated on behalf of the nearly 1,500 members of the Trial Lawyers Section. Dan was the recipient of the Trial Lawyers Section’s 2015 Exceptional Contributions Award.

Dan is also a member of the Justice Brandeis Law Society (JBLS), and serves on its Executive Committee. He is also a member of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association and the Westchester County Bar Association.

Outside of the office, Dan resides with his wife and two children in southern Westchester, New York. He is an avid golfer and roots for the Giants, Mets and Knicks.
