Ira Newman was my attorney in a very difficult employment matter. Exceptional, because he fully understood the nuances of my situation and through extensive negotiations with the lawyers for the other side achieved a fine result for me. On a personal level, Mr. Newman is both empathetic to his client’s concerns, listens, is very open to discussions about the pros and cons of various courses of action, and is comfortable and at home with recognizing and acting upon complex legal issues.

Very happy client. Attorney Ira S. Newman successfully represented me and two other plaintiffs in a complex federal labor law action resulting in an excellent financial settlement. Any time I called his firm with a question, I was able to speak with Mr. Newman or he would call me back the same day. He was extremely thorough and explained both the law and his strategy with us in easily understood layman’s terms. The opposing lawyers was a law firm in Manhattan. Would highly recommend this law firm to everyone.

Mr. Newman took time to explain the complexities of the law in reference to my case and didn't even charge for that time. Knowing that our case when it came to winning was going to be based on the few anomalies we decided to sit back and see how other aspects of the case were going to play out. Throughout the process Mr. Newman was very understanding and available. His administrative assistants are very helpful in passing messages to his staff and were able to provide any thing that I needed; which is hard to find these days.

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.
