Daniel A. Warshawsky
Professor of Law
Daniel A. Warshawsky joined New York Law School in Fall 2010 after 15 years at the Office of the Appellate Defender (OAD), New York City’s second oldest provider of appellate representation to indigent people convicted of felonies. As the Deputy Attorney-in-Charge of OAD, Professor Warshawsky helped structure and run the office and its training program, while representing hundreds of clients on appeal in serious felony cases, including homicide cases. Professor Warshawsky has appeared before courts at all levels of the state court system, and has appeared before New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals, numerous times. Professor Warshawsky trained and supervised scores of staff attorneys, volunteer associates from many of New York City’s largest firms, and students from New York University Law School, in all aspects of criminal practice and appellate advocacy. Prior to joining OAD, Professor Warshawsky was an Assistant Deputy Public Defender in New Jersey at both the trial and appellate levels. Among his proudest achievements was the reversal of a capital conviction that he won in the New Jersey Supreme Court for a client who had been on New Jersey’s death row. Professor Warshawsky was also a graduate fellow and Staff Attorney at Georgetown University’s Institute for Public Representation.
