Dan Bronk is an accomplished attorney with over thirty years of trial experience.  He has handled thousands of Workers’ Compensation cases since 1992.  He has an established record of trial wins in State and Federal courts in New York and Connecticut.  He has handled more than eighty trials, including cases involving medical malpractice, nursing home negligence, product liability, fires, construction accidents, car and truck accidents and other negligence claims.  He regularly appears at Social Security Hearings on behalf of his clients.  While Dan’s goal as a legal advocate for his clients is to achieve the best possible result without litigation, he is equipped with the experience and litigation skills to achieve excellent results in court, when necessary.

 

 

 

Dan believes strongly that an attorney is not just an advocate for his client, but serves to give the client a clear explanation of the law, the legal system, and the options that the client has under the law.  In his opinion, an attorney’s role is to provide practical and experienced advice to the client, so that the client can make an informed and reasoned decision.  Dan’s litmus test is simple: Is this the same advice that I would give my mother?

 

 

 

Dan enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Stephanie, and their four daughters.  He has enjoyed coaching his daughters and their teammates in sports, including hockey and soccer.  Dan regularly plays ice hockey and keeps active by participating in mountain biking, home repair, woodworking, boating and water skiing.  He also enjoys cooking for his family and friends.

What a team
Dan has represented me for 3-1/2 years and because of his knowledge and experience he has always been one step ahead of courtroom appearances,opposing attorneys,and communicating with you that gets you the results you deserve. His office staff is second to none and together they are truly a force to be reckoned with.

Incredible Attorney!!!
Dan Bronk has been my Worker's Comp attorney for quite a few years. My case has had its challenges and Dan expertly and professionally took on everything the insurance company tried to do and won every time! He is not only a very, very intelligent man, but what sets him apart from the other WC attorneys I spoke with when trying to find someone to represent me, is he genuinely cares about his clients, and addresses my questions and concerns, whereas the other attorneys said I could only speak with them just before we were to go into the courtroom. My case was pretty complex and they didn't want to address the issues. Dan has been so kind. He returns calls and treats you with dignity and respect. He tells you like it is and doesn't sugar coat things. He has challenged the insurance company on a number of occasions to increase my payments as allowed by law. I doubt any other attorney outside of Bronk & Somers would even care what I was getting paid. There is not a better attorney you can find than Dan Bronk. I am so very grateful to Dan for all he has done for me. He is the best!!!

The best lawyer Rochester N.Y
I got referred to him back in 2012 when I injured myself at work, he took my case and its been forward ever since. The firm is excellent, he has a great staff, and one of the best secretaries, Mary Lynn. Mr Bronk got me the money I deserved and more, we went to court I didn't even have to say a word. He is one bad mama jama! I believe in him so much that I have referred many people to him and they have all left very satisfied.

Very knowledgeable...Awesome attorney
I was hesitant at first to retain an attorney for my Workers compensation case...but I did and it was the best move I made. He was very honest, didn’t sugar coat anything...explained everything to me. I actually learned a lot from him. He answered any question that I asked. Every time I sent email I got a response. When he was explaining case law to me, I was glued listening to every word he said. Dan is very knowledgeable, I would and will recommend him.

Competent and Compasionate
I have known Dan for many years as he was my husband's Compensation Attorney as well. I have found him to be very professional and prompt in the handling of my case. Whenever I have had questions, it wasn't always easy for me to pick up the phone but I would email him and he would respond within 24 hours. If you are looking for someone to represent you in an honest and thorough way then Dan would be the only one that I would trust and recommend to assist you. Thank you Dan for all that you have done for me and my case. Hope you and your family have a great Christmas and an Awesome New Year!!

#1 Workers Compensation Lawyer in Rochester, NY
Dan Bronk has represented me since 2007. He has continuously gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure I received prompt medical care. He worked extremely hard to obtain any additional monetary benefits as a result of permanent injuries. His Assistant, Mary Lynn, is also part of this magnificent team who equally vested in ensuring you receive the best care possible. Being in excruciating pain from an injury, and wanting results immediately to resolve the pain - is no small tast and Dan Bronk and his team continue to go the extra mile to advocate for me. I will continue to refer Dan Bronk and his team of professionals as they stand far above the rest.

The best lawyer
Daniel Bronk took over my worker's comp case when my first lawyer failed to inform me about changes to my case and my benefits got suspended for over a year. Not only did he take over my case but he got back my money that my last lawyer lost me and got my payments raised. He really knows what he is doing and really cares about his clients. Dan Bronk is a wonderful lawyer and person.

Extremely Knowledgable and Trusting
Dan represented me in my workers compensation case. It was an extremely taxing case with many hurdles to overcome .However, regardless of medical denials or whatever stood in the way , he worked tirelessly to get the job done. He remained patient and always provided me with nothing but excellence in our endeavor to finish and come to a resolution. If I had to do it over, I wouldn't consider hiring anyone else.

Recommended Lawyer Worker's Compensation
I highly recommend Dan Bronk as an attorney. I appreciate his thoroughness and detail to accuracy. After being assaulted at Rochester City School District, and suffering a Traumatic Brain Injury [TBI}, I had/have deficits in my ability to navigate and deal with the Worker's Compensation processes/system. Prior to the Traumatic Brain Injury, my cognitive approach was similar to Dan's. For The Worker's Compensation Insurance Company, it may be about the money, but to me it is about MY life. When it is a matter of my life and future, I want the best. The attorney of choice, can make a big difference.

SSDI
Dan Bronk is an absolute wonerful attorney. He represented me in my SSD case, after my initial application was denied, which I filed on my own in 2012.I was very impressed with the way he "handled" the vocational expert @ our SSD hearing. Well after that hearing the Judge rendered a fully favorable decison,this was in 2014. Mr.Bronk is a wise, knowledgable, caring attorney and he has my respect. So thanks Dan, keep up the good work!

Dan Bronk is a no-nonsense, knowledgeable, and trustworthy lawyer. I could not be more pleased with his representation. He is not one to sugar coat or coddle, he will be direct and honest. He followed through on all matters, showed up to every hearing, and was sure to keep me in the loop on each step of the process.
