Daniel G. Ecker, an experienced civil litigation and trial attorney, represents our clients with passion, skill and diligence. 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’s work has been recognized by his peers, as he was selected to the New York Metro Super Lawyers List for 2019, and therefore recognized as among the top five percent of plaintiff’s personal injury lawyers in the area.
Dan was a partner at a national defense firm earlier in his career. He uses that prior experience and knowledge to great advantage on behalf of the firm’s clients, from the moment he meets them until the resolution of their matters.
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 is an active member of several bar associations, including the New York State Bar Association, the New York State Trial Lawyers Association, the Westchester County Bar Association, and the Justice Brandeis Law Society. He is an officer (treasurer) of the NYSBA’s Trial Lawyers Section, serves as chair of its Lawyers Professional Liability and Ethics Committee, and was the recipient of its 2015 Exceptional Contributions Award.
