Ira Newman was plaintiff counsel in a complex employment discrimination lawsuit I defended a few years ago. Mr. Newman is one of the best lawyers I have known in my career. He is extremely smart, very well versed in the law, an effective legal strategist, and a persuasive advocate. He also is uncommonly decent and personable, a true gentleman. I strongly endorse Mr. Newman.
