I had originally retained Debra for my bankruptcy.. I also retained her for my foreclosure defense as well. In retrospect, that was probably a bad move, as I already was having issues with her, and her competency as an attorney. As time went by, it became increasingly difficult to contact her, i.e. phone calls not being returned, etc. Then, one day she calls me and informs me that she is handing my case off to another attorney, and is retiring from practicing law immediately due to the fact that her mother was ill. Little did I know that, at that point, she was facing a severe sanction, and possible disbarment from practicing law in Florida.. I would not recommend her as an attorney.

Debra is the type of attorney that "thinks outside the box". She's creative and finds ways to assist her clients that many lawyers miss. She is driven by a challenge and is motivated by her clients' very best interest as the underdog to the "system". She is well versed in the law, and if she is not familiar with an issue, will investigate and find out the best way to handle it. I recommend her highly.

When my lawyer disappeared, later to be disbarred, Debra Newman took over my Chapter 13 bankruptcy. She was competent and caring. Her personal touch was something I had found to be a "missing trait" in the lawyers previously contacted. I am thankful to have had her on my side in my time of need.

Debra has represented our family for more than 4 years. She picked up the pieces that were left by our previous attorney, who had been arrested. She worked with us, understanding our unique situation, keeping us informed, & things moving forward. She also is very intuitive to her client's needs, & is a most caring person! I'm VERY glad to have her on our side & to count her among our friends!

Debra is a very dedicated and caring attorney. She has been working diligently with our family for almost five years. Debra has been striving to clean up a disaster that another attorney left us in. She accepts payments and her costs are very reasonable. After working so closely with Debra for such a long time she is more than just an attorney, she truly cares and fights for what is right no matter how long it takes. I recommend Debra in the highest regard.
