On my initial meeting which was supposed to be 250- he decided my fee should be 4 hours worth of work at 325-- and expected me to turn over full payment of 1550 for work he hadn't even started yet! When I reacted quite shocked he said-- ok I will lower it to three hours. When again I pushed back saying it seemed like a lot of time for a standard severance agreement he responded - "it could even be 2 and 1/2 hours". !! So so dishonest. Money hungry. And a basic liar. There's a reason why he hasn't been reviewed since 2010. Run. Away. Fast.

I own a construction company in Queens, New York and have been a client of Mr. Newman in many matters and over many years. He is the most able, knowledgeable and professional attorney I have ever dealt with. He explains legal options and alternatives to me and answers fully, effectively and in language I can understand, not lawyerspeak, any and all questions I may have relating to my company's legal and business issues. He has an uncanny ability to anticipate the likely results if various alternatives are pursued.He daels with matters efficiently and cost effectively.

Mr. Newman is, unqualifiedly, the most knowledgeable attorney by whom I have been represented during the past several years.
His litigation and negotiating skills, zealous client representation, high
professionalism, and years of dedicated experience litigating complex
matters at the trial court, Appellate Court and Federal Court levels, serve to define Mr. Newman as the consummate practitioner.
As a certified paralegal, I am not unfamiliar with numerous aspects of
the law, legal research, and civil litigation. Hence, I can state without
reservation that Mr. Newman maintains a masterful grasp of the judicial
process, utilizing the most up-to-date resources to achieve maximal
results. His judgment and advice are a cut above, eclipsing those of
prior attorneys I retained.
On a personal note, I must say that Mr. Newman is, at all times, gracious and attentive. He does not marginalize my concerns, answers
all questions in an understandable, clear, concise manner, and responds quickly to telephone calls or messages. His caring, sincerity
and devotion make the attorney-client relationship a profoundly

I am happy to provide my unqualified professional endorsement for attorney Ira Newman. In a complicated probate case commencing approximately three years ago, involving multiple parties, each of us representing different clients, I have found Mr. Newman to be highly knowledgeable and able in his advocacy, yet easy to discusses issues and differing points of view with, all with the objective of furthering our clients’ respective interests in a meaningful problem solving way.
