Wrongful Termination!
Through my >25year career, I had never been terminated. Within a 1 year span... I had experienced harassent for taking time off from work by my prior employer to take care of my Mom through PFL, heart attack, Mom passing away due to Covid, and then termination. All in less than 12 months. I was in disbelief and tormented, but luckily I was introduced to Daniel. He was patient and understanding. He gave me the support I needed and < 7months, I can honestly say I got what I was entitled and deserved. I can't thank you enough. I would nevee hesitate in recommending Daniel and know he would be the best person to assist any of my family and friends.

Wage dispute case
Daniel has been a fantastic lawyer. He is very competent, knowledgeable, professional, he is honest and upfront; but most of all, I felt he always had my back and fought hard for my rights. I am sure he has several open cases besides mine, but he made it look like I was his only client thanks to his efforts and dedication. I highly recommend his services.

Reliable, Professional and Supportive
I came to Dan with a harassment case, and was treated with the utmost care. Dan really cares about his clients and is exceptional at laying out the situation and suggested courses of action based on your needs/desired outcomes. I felt extremely supported through the whole process and was happy to have Dan on my side. Dan ensured I got what I wanted and needed both monetarily and emotionally by the conclusion of our case. Highly recommend!

A Gem of a Human and a Darn Good Lawyer
Dan is a true professional and was wonderful to work with. He helped me after the lowest point in my career. It’s been several months but I have to say that since the initial consultation, I always felt that he had my back. His approach to my discrimination case helped me regain my self esteem. He is a seasoned, results-driven professional who puts humans first. While I hope to not see him again with a work-related matter, I highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of someone to help assert their rights. I wish him nothing but continued success in fighting the good fight, thank you Dan.

Very responsive and quite helpful
I was referred to Daniel by the NYC Bar Legal Referral Service and I am glad that they did. Daniel was very helpful to me in reviewing a draft agreement and his counsel was concise and thoughtful. It greatly improved my level of comfort in how he distinguished between boilerplate language typical of similar agreements and areas where I needed to focus my attention to mitigate my exposure. I would absolutely recommend him.

Experienced professional on your side
I was given Dan's number as a recommendation by a trusted friend. I'm so grateful to have gotten in touch with Dan. He helped me navigate uncharted territory for me after my employment was unexpectedly terminated. Dan's steady hand helped guide me through the inevitable difficult decisions, and his counsel provided me with relief and comfort. Like I mentioned in the title, Dan is a seasoned professional as well as a straight shooter. He was logical and reasonable when discussing my options, and I'm unquestionably in a better position having had Dan's representation. I'm thankful I had Dan in my court to help me resolve my issue. Easy to recommend.

The People's Champion.
Highly recommend! Deciding to pursue litigation against an employer in itself can be a daunting idea. After having my first consultation with Dan Braverman - it was a no brainer to hire him. My case was on a sensitive topic and he handled it with the utmost care and compassion. He was empathetic, personable, patient, and incredibly thorough. He was available to answer my questions/concerns and took his time to guide me during the entire process. Very knowledgeable and assertive when the situation called for it. I would 100% recommend his firm to my family and friends!

Excellent labor attorney
I had Daniel Braverman as my labor attorney and could not have been happier. Since I met him for the first time, he explained the situation I was going through and answered all of my questions and concerns. He got back to me quickly and made it a seamless process. He helped me to understand legal documents and proceed accordingly with positive outcomes for me. His legal representation restored my faith in the justice system. I highly recommend him; he was an excellent labor attorney, I was very pleased with his service. Silvia C.V.

Fabulous Labor Lawyer
I was referred to Dan by friends. Hiring an employment lawyer was new territory for me and I was looking for someone who was both assertive and collaborative. Dan was perfect. He listened to my situation, put together a compelling argument and also kept my expectations realistic. In the end, he got me a fair settlement without ruffling the employer's feathers. I would recommend him to my family and friends, should the need arise.

I was referred to Dan by the New York City Bar Legal Referral Service, and feel I lucked out. He listened to my situation, advised on whether he felt I had a legitimate case, and worked closely with me towards a resolution. In the end, I feel I was made whole, and for that I'm incredibly grateful.

Very lucky to have Dan Braverman on my side.
I was referred to Dan Braverman by a friend and her husband who had great success with him. I was quite nervous because I had never hired an attorney before. My work situation was causing extreme stress and had come to a breaking point. From the very first call, Dan was attentive, thorough and straight-forward. He talked me through all my options and was incredibly patient. I was so nervous about taking action against my employer. I am so glad I took the plunge with Dan Braverman. He fought for me and managed to get me a comfortable severance and the satisfaction of exiting the job with my dignity and monetary compensation that I deserved. I will refer him to everyone I know who needs a savvy lawyer on their side.

Highly recommend
Daniel's help was indispensable to me considering that my company offered only 6 weeks of severance and cut off my health insurance coverage. Daniel pointed out the aspects of my work environment which were not met by my former company and helped to negotiate additional 3 months of severance as well as 4 months of health insurance. This made tremendous difference during difficult times for me and I highly recommend Daniel for such matters.

Dan Saved My Family
In the summer of 2022, I was let go by my company before I even started. With Dan's help, I was able to persuade the company to give me a generous payment to keep my family afloat during a challenging time. Without Dan's patience and expertise of employment law, this positive outcome would not have occurred. I will be forever grateful for his work on my issue. 5/5 highly recommend.
