Forever Grateful
Jay Dankner. You did it Jay! You saved our case. You gave us a future. I don't know if I properly thanked you after the jury verdict came in 100% for us. I was kind of stunned. In shock really. But I guess I shouldn't have been. I mean, you told us it would be OK. That we would be OK. But you were the only one who said that. The only one who believed we could win. When every other lawyer said our case was too difficult, you said not to worry. When not just the opposition, but the insurance companies, the hospitals, even the court system, all seemed to be against us, you were there. Calming. Caring. Always kind, always available. Answering every question we had. Addressing all our concerns. And so ridiculously knowledgeable in EVERY aspect of the law that we knew we would be OK. That we would win, even when everyone else said it couldn't be done. And you didn't just win for us Jay. You crushed it! You guided us through 5 years of legal quicksand after my husbands accident. You turned one of the worst times of our lives completely around. You saved us. You gave us a future. And we are forever grateful. Forever thankful. You're 1 of a kind...and simply the best!

Top Notch
Jay Dankner is an excellent attorney who represented me in a product liability case in which I suffered physical harm due to a silicone implant. He is hard working, diligent as well as compassionate. I would highly recommend him.

Jay Dankner is several cuts above the rest
When an injury devastated my life, his professional and personal skills allowed me to take care of my healing process, physical and mental, while he and his team took care of the rest. He was always available to answer questions and concerns throughout my case. Emails were returned right away and if he was unavailable, someone would contact me to let me know of when I should expect to speak with him. I was never made to feel like I was just another client, and when someone is in a situation like mine, that means a tremendous amount. Besides his caring demeanor, his knowledge as a seasoned trial attorney eased me during an otherwise nerve-wracking process. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Car Accident - Insurance Finally Paid!
My parked car was struck in Manhattan by a commercial driver. I witnessed the accident and the offending driver provided me his license and insurance details. When I contacted his employer, the story changed. I needed legal help and Mr. Dankner pursued the claim, taking witness statements, and the insurance company responded and settled in-full as soon as Mr. Dankner got involved. The experience was great. Thank you Mr. Dankner!

Jay is a wizard in a courtroom
I had previously retained jay dankner to handle a matter on my behalf. I was extremely happy with his representation. Jay was very knowledgeable, highly skilled, caring and achieved an excellent result. The jury loved Jay. I think Jay could sell ice to a jury in the winter. Hire him!!! He gets my highest recommendation.

Excellent Personal Injury Attorney
I was in New York on vacation, fell and fracture of my wrist. I needed surgery including the placement of a metal fixation devises to hold the bones of my wrist in place. I live in California. Despite the distant, Jay is always emailing update reports and keeping me posted on what is happening. He is excellent at explaining the legal system and making sure I understand what's going on. Whenever I call, he gets right back to me. The other thing I think is really important is that he explains to me the defense's arguments and our responses. I consider myself very fortunate to have found Jay Dankner to represent me.

Review by Alan G. Kraut, Esq.
I have known Jay Dankner for approximately 30 years. I have referred a number of clients to him due to his expertise in the field of personal injury. Without exception, each client has reported that they were extremely satisfied with the service he performed. On a personal level, he is very impressive with his knowledge, ability, responsiveness and caring. His professionalism has never wavered. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to any client.

A SUPERB HIGHLY SKILLED ATTORNEY
I am an experienced attorney and have had the privilege of working as co-counsel with many of NYC's top plaintiff's personal injury attorneys. In this select group, it is my strong opinion that Jay is among the best there is. On the cases I referred to him, Jay got fantastic results and in doing so he displayed all of the qualities one would expect from a top-flight attorney. But above all, his strong commitment to each client and his superior reputation in the legal community sets him apart from the rest --Jay is definitely a "go-to" attorney to handle big cases where the stakes are high. I sincerely hope to work with Jay and his law firm on future cases.

Best choice in NYC
Jay was smart, strategic, thoughtful, empathetic and really knows how insurance companies think. He was able to resolve a very unique case that involved negotiating with parties that had no real reason to give in...but they did. We were so lucky to work with him. He is top notch.

Hire Him!
Jay Dankner became my attorney a year after being in the legal hands of another firm, who had unfortunately mishandled my case. What a breath of fresh air! This man is on top of everything. Absolutely everything. And while I'm not easily impressed by "Best Lawyer" awards, I now understand why he has so many. It's also reassuring how he keeps me in the loop and makes me aware of all the details and progress of my case. And he's always been very reachable. Knowing that I can call and email him at any time is quite comforting. This has been one of the most difficult times in my life. I had a very severe accident, multiple surgeries, and am dealing with all sorts of issues. There's just so many things I have to worry about...but thankfully my lawyer isn't one of them. I highly recommend Jay Dankner, and his team, for anyone looking for a high quality firm, that has a very personal touch. Call him. You'll see. He's a great lawyer. And just as important, a really good man.

Lawyer's Lawyer
From my perspective as an experienced trial lawyer who, on occasion, has reached out to a colleague for assistance in high value, complex matters, Jay Dankner is invariably my first choice. He has earned the excellent overall rating noted above, and then some. I would add to the list of attributes that he brings to bear on his clients' behalf, a worthy combination of courtroom and negotiating skills which produce documented,, enviable results.

Professional personal injury attorney
Jay was an adversary on a case which I was defending. He was professional, courteous and we were able to resolve the case on very favorable terms for his client. This was due, for the most part, to the manner in which he conducted himself in a very difficult litigation with difficult facts and parties involved. We have seen become colleagues, and I have referred a number of personal injury matters to him. His clients are in good hands.
