Daniel J. Solinsky

Trial Attorney

Daniel Justus Solinsky began his legal career at the Bronx District Attorney’s Office in 2003. As an Assistant District Attorney, he tried armed robbery, gun possession, and assault cases among a variety of other felonies and misdemeanors. After his tenure at the D.A.’s office, he clerked in the Bronx Supreme Court under two administrative Justices.

He has been commended by judges and adversaries alike for impressive results in both conservative and liberal venues.
