Janice Deutsch

Lead Paralegal

Before joining the Law Offices of Adam Dayan in 2020, Janice Deutsch spent sixteen years as paralegal for various civil litigation defense firms and freelanced as a general practice paralegal for several overworked and understaffed solo attorneys. Her legal background encompasses a wide range of practice areas including estates, matrimonial, real estate, personal injury, malpractice, and more.


Janice's background in Special Education comes from the classroom. Janice spent four years at a public high school in East Flatbush, Brooklyn, teaching a variety of subjects to teenagers with learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, intellectual disability, neurological conditions, deafness, and speech/language impairment.


While earning a B.A. in Secondary Special Education from CUNY’s Brooklyn College, Janice simultaneously completed three related degree programs in Education of the Speech and Hearing Handicapped, Speech Pathology and Audiology, and Linguistics.


Janice is a native New Yorker, raised in Brooklyn since she was three. She is an avid reader (with too many bookshelves), cook (with too many recipes), and puzzler (with a 6,000-piece Map of the Ancient World and ten 1,000-piece puzzles mounted on her walls, plus daily subscriptions to a mountain of crossword, logic, and quiz-type puzzles).
