Paul D. Dansker


Mr. Dansker co-established the law firm of Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP with Salvatore Aspromonte in April 1989 at 30 Vesey Street, on the edge of the World Trade Center site in Manhattan.

Mr. Dansker grew up in South Jersey and graduated in 1976 from Rutgers University with a degree in Business Administration and a minor in Art History. As an undergraduate, he was President of the Economics Honor Society and owned and operated his own student travel business. He subsequently entered Brooklyn Law School, from which he graduated in 1979. After taking the bar, he traveled extensively in Europe and the Middle East before returning to New York where he became an associate at the law firm of Weisberg, Sieven & Mammana. It was there that Mr. Dansker learned his craft in trial advocacy, exclusively in the field of personal injury litigation. From 1980 until 1985, he tried hundreds of personal injury cases with consistent success. As his expertise and reputation grew, he attracted a substantial client base. This eventually led him to establish Paul Dansker Associates in January 1986 before merging his practice with Mr. Aspromonte.

Mr. Dansker’s mission statement for his practice was remarkably simple: Treat every client with respect, and represent each client as if he or she was a member of his own family – never forgetting that the firm has hundreds of cases, but the client has only one that they depend on to secure their future.

It was that drive and philosophy that carried over to the firm of Dansker & Aspromonte Associates LLP. Since 1989, Mr. Dansker has personally won over $300 million for his clients through diligent preparation and persuasive trial techniques. Most notably, he won a medical malpractice suit for a young boy in the Bronx, which will pay out over $50 million during his lifetime; $10.3 million for a young woman who sustained traumatic epilepsy when she was hit by a truck; and $7.3 million for a woman struck by a police motor scooter, among many others.

Mr. Dansker personally oversees the litigation department and trains all of the firm’s attorneys in advanced trial techniques. He continues to build for a brighter future.

Most recently, he was inducted into Strathmore’s Who’s Who for demonstrating leadership and achievement.

Mr. Dansker was elected to Super Lawyers in October of 2011 in honor of his 32 years of success in the area of Personal Injury Litigation.

In his spare time, Mr. Dansker has written a novel and two screenplays, which he hopes to publish in the near future.
