Bold and Kind Representation
Daniela Nanau was and is a ferocious defender of her clients, not just getting results, but the best possible results in a given situation. Working with Nanau make me feel both secure and like I had agency in a trying situation. I would absolutely work with Nanau again.

A standard-bearer for excellence
Daniela, pound for pound, may be one of the best discrimination attorneys in New York. Her practice may be small, but she punches far above her weight. My complaint was against an academic institution with resources and clout that made them appear to be invulnerable. Through her dedication, wit, and grace, we stood toe-to-toe with the defendant -- and their massive, predatory law firm -- at every step of litigation. Her confident, commanding presence, and willingness to stand up for you, is deeply reassuring, and she earnest regards you as a partner and an equal in the process. I am beyond grateful for Daniela and would highly recommend her.

Intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate attorney
I consulted Daniela concerning an employment discrimination matter. Even before being retained, she was very generous with her time. Although I was able to give her only short notice, she prioritized reviewing many gathered documents and provided suggestions to me. This enabled me to meet important deadlines. She impressed me as a very sensitive and detailed-oriented lawyer. She seems to have exceedingly strong loyalty to her clients.

Would Definitely Recommend
Daniela Nanau was my attorney for an extremely important, historic, civil rights case, involving the USDOJ and a landlord who hired a sex offender to be our superintendent. Ms. Nanau, represented 5 woman. She guided us through the whole deposition process, the trial prep, answered questions, emails, texts, concerns right away. She just made a horrible process a lot easier. I highly recommend her as an attorney.
