Mr. Newstat's office took care of our needs, and was successful in concluding the case. I appreciated how Arianna always acknowledged the receipt of our e-mails and communicated our needs to Mr. Newstat. The team helped us. Thank you!
When working with lawyer the business side is important to me. Joshua's firm responded quickly and got the paperwork started right away. They were very thorough explaining their process, what was involved and fees involved. So far so good.
To Whom It May Concern:
This is a letter to attest to the professionalism, acumen and personal care that Attorney Josh Newstat takes with my case.
First off I can tell you that my case is one of the most difficult to handle being a “white collar” crime and Mr. Newstat handled it with flying colors. What I felt I was charged with I honestly believed to be innocent. Mr. Newstat told me what I needed to hear not what I wanted to hear. He laid out all the options and every step of the way worked with me financially and strategically. To this day I still believe I could have beat my case completely if I had fought it in court but I am glad with the deal I took so I could move on with my life.
Mr. Newstat has a staff that is second to none. After speaking to several of the employees in his office they all know me by name. When there is an issue it is handled quickly and efficiently. They are always friendly on the phone and when I have visited their offices.
Now let me tell you about Mr. Newstat as an attorney. First of all, honest to the core. He will tell you exactly how he feels and will not mince words. I don’t know how you feel about that but there are three people I want unadulterated honesty from, my doctor, my wife and my lawyer. Mr. Newstat was very kind to work with me on a payment plan. My case caught me a bit off guard so my finances were not in the greatest shape. He was considerate to understand that.
I work in Professional Sports and have for close to 20 years. My career has included working in 3 different countries including the United States and is very high profile. Mr. Newstat was so detailed in what it would take to take the deal I needed to allow me to continue my career without being hindered with a Felony, he worked very hard to ensure this happened.
I am a purveyor of details, especially in my business of professional sports, we watch everything. There was one instance in particular I will point out. This is so important because it gave me the impression that Mr. Newstat was not only an “outside the box” thinker but also would look at all the possible resources involved.
As we were leaving the court room during my hearing, Mr. Newstat asks me to walk behind him, to wait for his signal. These instructions were given with a rather intense look on his face, this was important to him. I complied naturally. At first I was a bit perplexed that he would think it was so important to walk behind him and at his timing. As we exited the courtroom, Mr. Newstat, obviously knowing that I can hold a conversation pretty well and I would expect given the fact I had been asking him to give me an audience with the DA planned an impromptu meeting with the DA and the investigator. It was genius, I had my meeting all because of strategic planning and picking his move. I still feel to this day that chance meeting because of Mr. Newstat in the Ventura County Courtroom hallway was the reason why I got the deal I did. Mr. Newstat knew how difficult it is to shoot someone when looking them in the eye. Just the type of thinking you want when your life can be ruined because of a few bad choices.
As a man of God, while I was going through this ordeal I kept asking God for forgiveness. I was referred to Mr. Newstat by a close friend of mine who didn’t use his services. I feel that God will never give us more than we can handle but enough to teach us lessons along the way. I have addressed Mr. Newstat for professional courtesy but through this time I have got to know Mr. Newstat and I consider him a friend. If I ever need any legal services anywhere my career takes me, jurisdiction or not Mr. Newstat will be the first one I call.
I thank God every day that I found Mr. Newstat and his offices for my case. No matter how convoluted or simple your case is Mr. Newstat has the resources and acumen to handle it.
I thank you Josh for your strength and ability to see my case through to the end.
After getting my license suspended & facing revocation, I contacted Josh & his team for assistance. Given that Josh had gotten my previous charges from a separate, much more serious incident dismissed, I was confident in their ability to handle this. As predicted, Josh was able to help me reinstate my drivers license. In addition, he also got one of my traffic offenses removed (saving me a point on my license) and also saved me several thousand dollars in potential fees. His assistant Ariana was similarly diligent and helpful with my DMV-related issues. With this in mind, I thank Joshua Newstat & Associates for coming through again. I endorse them and recommend 100 percent.

As my lawyer, both Mr. Newstat and his support staff provided me with peace of mind and reassurance as my case proceeded to trial. Mr. Newstat's legal aide, Ariana, kept me informed and updated on the details off my case on a daily basis, which allowed me to continue working and living my daily life with limited stress and interruption from the legal process. Without Mr. Newstat's help, I would have an irrevocable blemish on my public record. I fully endorse Mr. Newstat's office.

Recently, a member of my family had a scrape with the law. I contacted the Law Firm of Lessem & Newstat and requested their representation. Joshua E. Newstat, Esq. accepted the case. He explained what to expect regarding his investigation from beginning to end. He kept me well-informed in every step of his investigation, going to the ends of the earth and back to get a case dismissed everyone else said would be sadly impossible.
Mr. Newstat’s support staff was always responsive and he was always available which helped settle my anxiety and the pressure I was feeling.
My compliments to the Law Firm of Lessem & Newstat LLP. Clearly, their No. 1 priority is achieving positive outcomes for their clients.

Getting my DUI was a very scary thing for me. Not knowing what I was up against, I turned to the law offices of Lassem & Newstat, witch came highly recommended through a friend.

Frivolous attacks and threats can come from anywhere at anytime. The one I received recently was potentially damaging to me personally and to my business. My heart was in my stomach, my life was in disarray, I couldn't work effectively, and this issue took over my personal life. The end result if it had gone poorly could have been devastating. I called Lessem & Newstat LLP and attorney Joshua Newstat assisted me. Immediately, the threat was dissected and analyzed at all angles to determine how to best approach my serious problem. I feel that was a very critical component, as the wrong move could have definitely created a nightmare for me. Joshua made several key and strategic calls with various parties and within a few weeks, he had checkmated my attacker. The matter was no longer an issue. What started as an enormous ball of stress for me, quickly diffused into nothing and my life continued back to normal. Nothing replaces your peace of mind. There is no better feeling, than to know you are going to battle with the best. Joshua Newstat is an advocate that is polished yet aggressive, thoughtful yet decisive, intelligent - both book smart and street smart, extremely resourceful, crafty...I could continue on. Lessem & Newstat LLP and Joshua Newstat needs to be in your contacts whenever you need help, an incredible asset to have on your side in your most desperate times of need.

I was researching attorneys online like most people that havent found themselves in a situation before where needing an attorney was necessary. Not knowing any attorneys personally and not fully understanding my situation I came across Lessem & Newstat website and am I glad I did. Josh and his staff were extrememly helpful. Josh went above and beyond to make sure I received the best possible outcome in my case. He was able to negotiate a better deal than I was even expecting. I can not say enough good things about this law firm. If you are trying to choose the right attorney for your situtation make sure he is at the top of your list. He made sure the outcome was quick and easy.
