Daniel A. Schlanger
Attorney Daniel Schlanger has dedicated his legal career to the protection of consumers’ rights. A graduate of Harvard Law School and former clerk for the Hon. R. Lanier Anderson, III of the United States Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit, Dan got his start in consumer protection at the Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, where he was a staff attorney in that organization’s Consumer Law Unit.
In 2007, Dan went into private practice as a partner at Schlanger Law Group, LLP, where he has built a federal litigation practice dedicated to consumer class actions and the representation of victims of inaccurate credit reporting and identity theft.
Dan’s passion for consumer protection extends beyond the personal service he provides to victims of identity theft, overreaching debt collectors, false advertising and other unfair and deceptive business practices. He regularly speaks and presents CLE programs on topics relating to the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), auto fraud, usury, collection defense, and related consumer topics.
In 2013, Daniel Schlanger received the New York State Bar Association President’s Award for Individual Pro Bono Work (9th Judicial District), and the Jim Gardner Business Ethics Award from the Rotary Club of White Plains. He was named to the Super Lawyers New York Metro Rising Stars list in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.
Before entering Harvard Law School in 2001, Dan spent seven years working in sustainable agriculture, including five years as the owner and manager of a certified organic vegetable farm located outside of Sacramento.
