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 hired Mr. Newman when a professional school in which I was enrolled had taken unwarranted proceedings against me. His representation, which involved a court proceeding against the school, was instrumental (indeed, indispensable), in reaching a result that was most favorable to me. This firm has litigated my case extremely effectively. I would recommend Ira Newman with no reservation, as a lawyer who can handle complex matters always with a focus on zealously advancing his client’s interests.

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-- okay 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". !! It seems clear to me that he was jacking up his fees for work he had not even begun to do- without even having a clear understanding about what it would entail. 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
