Admitted to practice in the states of New Jersey and New York, he has appeared in the state and federal courts in both states at the trial and appellate levels, and has been admitted pro hac vice to handle his client’s matters in many other states.
Dan’s wide range of experience has included his appointment as an arbitrator for the American Arbitration Association and years as a volunteer arbitrator in the New Jersey Superior Court. He has lent his expertise and time as a trustee, supporter and volunteer to a number of non-profit institutions and public charities, including serving as Board Chairman at both the Dwight-Englewood School, an independent college preparatory (pre-K to 12) school, and The Community Chest serving Englewood, Tenafly and Englewood Cliffs in Bergen County, New Jersey.
