Meet Dan

Dan on the street where he grew up in Washington Heights

Dan Quart grew up in Washington Heights, Manhattan. His dad, Irving, was a public school teacher for 41 years and his mother, Madeline, was a long-time teacher and now guidance counsellor at a Manhattan public school. Irving and Madeline instilled the value of service to others and giving back to the community in Dan from a young age.

After graduating from SUNY Binghamton and St. John's School of Law, Dan dedicated his time to pro-bono advocacy. For years, he volunteered on behalf of rent controlled and stabilized tenants who were facing eviction by unscrupulous developers. Following his work in the community, Dan was honored as one of New York City's top pro-bono attorneys by New York State's Chief Judge.

Dan currently serves as the State Assemblymember for the seventy-third district of New York, representing the Upper East Side, Midtown East, Turtle Bay, and Sutton Place. Since being elected in 2011, he’s been a staunch advocate for criminal justice reform and fighting for working families.

Dan Quart has been a champion for criminal justice reform

Guided by his experience as a pro-bono and 18-b criminal defense attorney, Dan has made criminal justice reform a central goal of his legislative agenda. After witnessing the harmful effects the failings of our justice system had on New Yorkers — particularly Black, indigenous, and people of color and low-income communities — he’s introduced legislation to end cash bail, fairly compensate exonerees, rework our ACD process, and reform campaign finance laws for District Attorneys races.
