    • I recommend Lawrence Newman.

    Larry was an immense help when I ran into some legal troubles right before I was supposed to leave the country for a few months. He remained calm and responsive to me even when I was not as cool and collected. As a college student, he was able to understand my needs and was able to help me only receive an ACD for everything, meaning that I could leave the country without any problems. I would most definitely recommend Larry to anyone who requires legal help.

    My daughter is a freshman in the Cortland area and we live 5 hours away. She has her car up there and on her first trip home by herself, inexperienced with interstate driving, she found herself getting a speeding ticket going 95 in a 65 zone and swears she had no idea she was going that fast! I was so reluctant trying to look through a see of lawyers in the area to represent her, knowing all too well, this would cost a fortune and I had no way of knowing the difference. I came across the website for Larry Newman and was instantly comfortable reading up the reviews, seeing his videos and learning of his credentials. He was the first call I actually made and I left my message. Within minutes I received a call back and we spoke of my daughter's situation at length and he immediately put my mind at ease. I was so upset and worried and had never been in this situation with any of my other children and didn't know what to expect. The distance factor was also a terrible burden that I could not wrap my head around to handle with my daughter. He assured me this was not a life or death situation and that it could have been much worse. He explained in detail the potential of the charges she could incur and what his intention was in reducing her charges. He made absolutely no promises or guarantees on the outcome, however, he made me feel confident that he would handle everything from beginning to end. Then he told me his rate and I was shocked then breathed a sigh of relief. It was not the astronomical amount I had conjured up in my mind, and from that moment on, I was perfectly at ease with this process. I knew I chose the right man for the job!!!!

    As promised, exactly 3 weeks later, he contacted us with the final decision and was successful in bringing down her fine from 95/65 to 80/65. Points were reduced to avoid the DMV charges.

    Larry Newman is absolutely a fantastic lawyer and I would highly recommend his services to anyone looking for an honest, reliable, competent lawyer!!! No hassles, no worries !!

    THANK YOU AGAIN LARRY NEWMAN!!!!!!

    Mr. Newman was extremely helpful in fighting my speeding ticket and getting it reduced so that I could keep my license. Due to a previous speeding ticket and a second one almost a year later with such a high speed the possibility of losing my license was high. Thankfully Mr. Newman did all he can to get my ticket reduced from a 101mph in a 65mph zone to an 86mph in a 65mph zone.This reduction allowed me to keep my license and gave me another chance. I'm very thankful to Mr. Newman and highly recommend him. His communication with me kept me up to date throughout the entire process.

    Larry is the lawyer to call if you are facing a serious traffic ticket.

    I was pulled over for going 51 in a 25 – in a school zone. That area typically has a 45 MPH limit, but school had recently come back into session, and I just plain blanked out. I was in tears after receiving the ticket.

    Then, when I looked into what I was potentially facing – loss of license, huge fines, and perhaps even jail time – I cried some more. It was all so overwhelming, and I just knew I needed help. I started to Google, and I came across Larry’s blog, website, and YouTube videos. I had heard good things about him from a friend, and the positive reviews made me feel a little better, so I shot him an email.

    He responded promptly, and though he didn’t make huge promises, he took my case. His fee was modest, and his results were spectacular.

    He handled everything from start to finish. I didn’t have to appear in court. He negotiated with the DA, and he got me the best plea bargain I could have hoped for. Without Larry’s help, I would have been facing a huge fine, a bunch more points on my license, and massive DMV fees for YEARS to come.

    Even with his help, I was still expecting a hefty fine for my stupid, stupid, speeding infraction, but when he sent me the fine notice, I was pleasantly surprised. It was about a tenth of what I had anticipated.

    Larry is nothing short of incredible, so if you find yourself in serious trouble, contact him. He is personable, his fees are affordable, and he will save you so much time and grief. You absolutely will not find a better attorney for traffic violations.

    First of all, when this happened to me I was in a complete panic! I was depressed and confused. This website and reviews just like mine was why I chose Larry. He got back to me right away, himself. There is no secretary between you and him. Larry is ALWAYS available and has a way of looking at life that make a DUI seem manageable. He got me the best options available. He also navigated the frustrating multiple court cases and got everything done as soon as possible. I lost my job and had to move. It was a real low in my life and Larry never let me forget that even though bad things happen to everyone, good highs can come after the lowest lows. Hire him, you will NOT regret it!

    I received a DWI in NYS and pleaded guilty in April 2012. I satisfied all fines and penalties for the state
    of NY but had an NDR entry by another state. I tried for months to get the other state to remove the
    NDR entry but they flat out refused. As a result, I could not get my full NYS unconditional license.

    I finally gave up, but, found a video which Mr Newman explained exactly what the NDR
    was and how it worked.

    In desperation I contacted Mr Newman and explained my situation. He agreed to take the case and
    immediately began working with NYS and Georgia. I know it was frustrating but he plugged away
    and finally got a resolution. I am thrilled to report that he got me my full NYS unconditional license back at a reasonable rate I could afford.

    I am so grateful. I highly recommend Mr Newman to anyone with a DWI or NDR issue. I know he will
    work tirelessly to resolve it to your benefit. Many thanks Mr Newman.....

    Sincerely,
    PJP

    My experience with Mr. Newman is excellent. My college student child received a traffic ticket that would have cost thousands of dollars in fees between fines and insurance. I found Mr. Newman and I am glad I did! He explained he thought he could help, but said he must review the facts first. He did not want to take on the case if he could not help! Great to have an honest person, BEFORE paying any fees!!! I sent him the ticket and copies of my child's driving record. He promptly replied that the ticket was worth fighting and he went to work. He was very reasonable in his fees, great with his communication, a pleasure to deal with, and truly a nice person. I give him my highest reccomendation!!!!

    • I recommend Lawrence Newman.

    Excellent is the right word to describe the quality of service I received from Mr. Lawrence A. Newman. He was accessible which was very important to me and he kept me well informed from the beginning to the end of the case. We had over half a dozen meetings. He was punctual. I was never kept waiting. He was excellent in returning calls. In the course of the meetings he was direct, focused and efficient. I enjoyed conversing with Mr. Newman and recommend him without reservation.
