About Me

            Beginning his legal career as a Prosecutor for the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. Novack served his civic duty by protecting the rights of victims by bringing defendants to justice. Early in his career, Mr. Novack was designated a “DUI Specialist” for Orange County, charged with the responsibility of convicting multiple prior offenders for DUI.  As a felony prosecutor, Mr. Novack immediately took on the most egregious cases in protecting victim’s rights in firearm cases, sexual battery, home invasion robbery and second degree murder trials. 


Prior to leaving the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. Novack became a DUI Instructor and is certified to teach law enforcement agencies after having received his formal training by the Institute of Police Technology & Management through the National Institute of Traffic Safety Administration.  Mr. Novack received the same training specialized police officers undergo who conduct investigations and arrests for a wide range of DUI charges including crashes involving Serious Bodily Injury or Death.


After resigning from the State Attorney’s Office, Mr. Novack continued to sharpen his trial skills by working for one of the top criminal defense law firms in Central Florida.  Mr. Novack worked tirelessly in defending each person’s constitutional rights in ensuring the government did not arbitrarily take away his client’s basic liberties.  Despite constantly being targeted for working at one of the highest profile criminal defense law firms in Central Florida, Mr. Novack achieved an extraordinary success rate in securing a just and fair verdict for his clients.


               Mr. Novack has been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers magazine for 2014. All candidates for this honor are selected through a rigorous process highlighting attorneys who demonstrate an exceptional level of accomplishment in the practice of law.  While up to 5 percent of the lawyers in a state are named to Super Lawyers, no more than 2.5 percent are named to Rising Stars.  Both designations are determined through a patented, multi-phase selection process involving a statewide survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, peer reviews by practice area, and personal achievement.


               In addition, Mr. Novack has received the Martindale-Hubbell® esteemed “AV Preeminent” rating, which recognizes lawyers with the highest ethical standards and professional ability.  This is the highest possible rating and a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him at the highest level of professional excellence. The Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Ratings™ are generated from confidential evaluations of lawyers by other members of the Bar and the Judiciary.  Only a select group of attorneys are ever awarded with this premier distinction.  Mr. Novack has also received an invitation to the National Trial Lawyers for Top 100 Trial Lawyer, Top 40 Under 40 Trial Lawyers, and a “10.0 Superb” rating by AVVO. 


Mr. Novack’s passion for victim’s right has brought him to the Law Offices of Dan Newlin & Partners, which specializes in personal injury, auto accidents, and wrongful death.  Mr. Novack has rededicating himself to making a difference in the lives of victims in securing their rights.  Committed to each of his clients, Mr. Novack utilizes his previous trial experience in ensuring each victim receives their day in court.
