Daniela F. Henriques began her legal career at Leav & Steinberg in 2002. Motivated by her desire to make an impact as an advocate for the seriously injured, she continued to work as a paralegal at the firm while attending law school full time. She received her J.D. from New York Law School in Manhattan, where she graduated cum laude. She was the recipient of the New York State Bar Association Legal Ethics Award. Upon joining the firm as a lawyer in 2005, Ms. Henriques continued to work on all aspects of case investigation, client and witness interviews, drafting and overseeing pleadings, writing and arguing appeals and motions, plaintiffs' and defendants' examinations before trial, court appearances and trial preparation. Mrs. Henriques became the managing attorney at the firm in 2012, and partner in 2013. Mrs. Henriques has been named in Super Lawyers magazine as one of 2013, 2014 and 2015 New York Metro Rising Stars. Ms. Henriques's specialty is legal research, analysis and writing. Ms. Henriques's insights into what is necessary to support or defend a particular legal argument has made her a valued asset in both providing support to the trial attorneys and winning motions and appeals. Because of her astute abilities to research and analyze legal issues, Ms. Henriques is often asked to prepare and argue pre-trial motions concerning labor law claims, municipality and premises liability, as well as motor vehicle accident cases. Since joining Leav & Steinberg, she has prepared and argued appeals in both the Second and First Departments of the Appellate Division. Often, Ms. Henriques's ability to argue the application of a given set of facts to governing law, secures a favorable judgment, thereby eliminating the need for a liability trial. At other times, her vigorous opposition to dismissal motions, defeats a defendants' motion, thereby keeping viable defendants in the case to contribute towards a settlement for plaintiffs.
