  • Samuel Michael Meyler

    I have had the opportunity to see David Newman's work firsthand on several occasions, and in varying settings. Whether at the mediation table, in the courtroom, or in the office meeting with clients, I have always found David to be knowledgeable, creative, honest and prudent. I have referred clients to him the past and will do so in the future because I am confident in his ability to represent them.
