Daniel J.
Solinsky

Dan Solinsky comes to Fellows Hymowitz with a mastery of all facets of the accomplished trial attorney. Dan’s ability to achieve unusually high verdicts in notoriously conservative venues throughout New York State brought him notoriety among his peers.

"I treasure the connection developed with my clients from the inception of their case until its very end. Only with this special bond can I tell their story to a jury."

At 35 years of age, he began to teach other trial attorneys about Jury Selection, Depositions and Municipal Liability. Dan was last at another prominent personal injury firm on Long Island serving as a trial attorney. Four times a year, with the New York State Academy of Trial Lawyers, Dan continues to lecture other lawyers.

A Unique Perspective

His legal career began as an Assistant District Attorney in Bronx County where he was assigned to the prestigious A34 Trial Bureau. After sharpening his Courtroom skills in the rough and tumble halls of the Supreme Court, he then became a Principal Court Attorney assigned to two Administrative Supreme Court Justices. There he continued to hone his critical thinking and writing skills.

“I am extremely fortunate to have been able to participate in trials as both a litigator as well as a law clerk to Judges, I believe this not only gives me a unique perspective when I am preparing and trying a case, but also when drafting motions, and legal memoranda, I feel I am keenly aware of what Judges are looking for.”

“Why do we do what we do? It’s not for prestige, it’s not for money, it’s because, for me, at some point, I have been a victim too, I have also been wronged: I feel a kinship with every one of my clients that I have the privilege to represent and it has always been my honor to tell their story.”

Dan is the founding member and sole administrator of the “Plainview Dads” Facebook page – Dan started this local Facebook page in 2013 and it has grown to over 1,000 members. The site is extremely active and made up of local members who regularly network and recommend various businesses.
