Danielle L. Sicari, Esq.

Prior to joining the Law firm of Michael B. Schulman & Associates in July of 2018, Ms. Sicari had been practicing civil litigation for almost twenty years. Ms. Sicari’s area was primarily representing individuals and small business owners as both plaintiffs and defendants in commercial law, personal injury, matrimonial and real estate matters.  

In her three years with the law firm of Michael B. Schulman and Associates, P.C., Ms. Sicari, after successfully defending against a motion to vacate a bifurcated arbitration liability award, was instrumental in obtaining a nearly $100,000 award of attorneys’ fees in the matter. 

Danielle has successfully defended numerous motions to dismiss in actions based on employment agreements, implied contracts for construction work, and early lease terminations. Danielle also successfully removed a lis pendens from a property embroiled in a related matter by arguing that the lis pendens was filed untimely.

Ms. Sicari was admitted to practice in New York in 2001 and the federal bar in 2014.  She lives in North Babylon with her husband and young daughter.
