Meet Dan

Dan grew up in subsidized housing in Washington Heights

Dan Quart is a New York State Assembly Member representing Manhattan’s East Side and one of New York City’s top pro-bono attorneys. A Washington Heights native, Dan grew up in subsidized housing with his working-class parents. His dad, Irving, was a public school teacher for 41 years, and his mother, Madeline was a guidance counselor 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 defended tenants’ rights and public lands as a pro bono attorney. Volunteering with the Legal Aid Society, Dan represented rent controlled and stabilized tenants who were facing eviction by unscrupulous developers. He has also served as an 18-b criminal defense attorney. 

Dan Quart has been a champion for criminal justice reform

Through his legal work, Dan witnessed the harmful failings of New York’s justice system for Black, indigenous, and people of color and low-income communities. Since being elected in 2011 to the New York State Assembly, he’s been a staunch advocate for criminal justice reform and fighting for working families. 

Dan is running for Manhattan District Attorney to hold police brutality accountable, fight white supremacy, end cash bail and mass incarceration, review wrongful convictions, stop the criminalization of poverty, and offer more alternatives to jail or prison.
