I am a partner at LaMonica Herbst & Maniscalco, LLP (the “Firm”).   I joined the Firm as an associate in March 2004 and was made partner in March 2007.

 

During law school graduated law school, I clerked at the Massachusetts Superior Court, assisted in the denaturalization and deportation of Nazi war criminals residing in the United States while serving at the Department of Justice Office of Special Investigations, litigated numerous criminal cases as a public defender in New Mexico, and worked on a variety of contract, copyright, trademark, and communications issues at National Public Radio's Office of the General Counsel.

 

After graduation from law school, I worked as an Assistant District Attorney in Nassau County for nearly four years, prosecuting a variety of petty and felony crimes.  Prior to joining the Firm, I worked at the Law Offices of David J. Sutton, P.C., as an associate, where my primary areas of practice were general and commercial litigation.

 

I am admitted to practice before the courts of the State of New York, the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and the United States Supreme Court.

Excellent Attorney!
David is a very knowledgeable and excellent attorney. He paid attention to every detail of our transaction. I hired David in 2017 in order to draft the sales agreement and closing documents for the sale of my business to one of my former employees. Together, we came up with a plan on how the deal should be structured in order to best protect my interests. He came up with many great ideas that I never would have foreseen. He took the time to listen and understand the parties involved. Not only did David oversee the initial transaction, but when the buyer defaulted, he helped me successfully navigate the situation with a 100% favorable outcome where both myself and the buyer walked away satisfied. David is detail oriented, knows the law, and is a caring and all around good guy in a sometimes challenging field. Well done David! I will always highly recommend him.

Very Knowledgeable
David was instrumental in creating and negotiating a fair and reasonable operating agreement between myself and 2 other business partners. We went through dozens of possible scenarios, both good and bad, based on his past experiences and foresite. It was a seamless process and has been smooth sailing for our business since completion and execution.

A true professional.
A former employee illegally charged a large sum of money to my personal credit card. Two different attorneys took 18 months trying to correct this situation. Mr. Blansky was recommended to me so I decided to take a chance with him. All I can say is, "Wow, what a difference". We had a relatively brief conversation of the background of the case and he went right to work. Within a comparatively short time Blansky not only won the case but got me some money back. I would recommend him to anyone looking for the best legal representation out there.

Fantastic Attorney - Highly Recommend
I live in MD but needed representation in NY to amend an erroneous default judgement. I spoke to a number of attorneys before finding David. I knew immediately that I was in good hands, as he quickly understood how to handle my case, concisely explained all of the technicalities while providing a swift resolution. Without a doubt, David went above and beyond and established a trust and confidence that left an impression. I will certainly turn to his services again if the need arises and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an honest, expeditious and highly skilled attorney.

Great Service
David was able to understand my unique requirements for a contract that I needed to create and was able to reduce my risk and liability by identifying unforeseen events that could occur in the future. His analytical skills were very impressive. I definitely will recommend him to anyone. -Andrew Malik
