Local Lawyer Named Rising Star


SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Daniel J. McCarey, Esq. of the Law Office of Daniel J. McCarey, LLC located in Scotch Plains, NJ, has been named to the Rising Stars list as one of the top up-and-coming attorneys in the New York Metro area for 2012. This year’s list will appear in the Sunday, October 7, 2012 edition of the New York Times Magazine.

Each year, no more than 2.5 percent of lawyers in the New York Metro area under 40 receive this honor.  The selection for this respected list is made by the research team at Super Lawyers. a Thomson Reuters business, that rates outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. 

“This is quite an honor,” said McCarey.  “It means a lot to me that my own peers thought enough of me to not only take the time to respond to a survey, but they actually gave positive feedback about my practice and how I go about dealing with clients.  I get surveys in the mail for other lawyers, and it does take a bit of time, and for enough people to have actually taken the time to do that is really a compliment.”

McCarey began his career in California over a decade ago, handling a lot of A listers in the sports and entertainment arena.  “While I don’t run in those circles now, it gave me some unique experience.  Another unique aspect to my background is that I have actually taken the role of both defense and plaintiff in my career, and by having taken on both halves in my career I can anticipate the next step preemptively, having been on the other side myself.  That gives me an advantage strategically when clients retain me for their cases.”

McCarey moved his practice to Scotch Plains last year, and as a Fanwood resident, enjoys the short commute.  “I really like the feel of a small practice, and while I’m open to growing in the future, I’m not open to returning the concrete jungle of New York City!”
