About Lawrence Newman

About me

Hi my name is Larry Newman. Originally, I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. My father was a NYS corrections officer, and my mother a waitress. I have degrees in Human Biology, and Doctorates in Law and Chiropractic. 


Our legal practice is 100% dedicated to the defense of DWI charges in Upstate New York. We cover the Finger Lakes region of NYS. Including the counties of Tompkins, Chemung, Schuyler, Tioga, Yates, Steuben, Yates, Broome, and Cortland. I am licensed in FL, NY, PA, and NJ.


We offer complete representation of DWI charges. This can include administrative representation of action upon any state license. DUI charges (alcohol and/or drugs) often have a collateral impact upon teaching certification, professional state licensure, healthcare licensure, application for licensure, gun permits, travel, and future employment. I am partner with attorney Michael Cyr in Ithaca, NY.  Newman and Cyr is a boutique law practice which focuses on New York DWI defense and criminal defense.


Under the Department of Transportation I am certified as a breath test technician, and under the guidelines of the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) I am Certified in the FSTS (Field Sobriety Tests). I am a member of the NCDD (National College of DUI Defense).

To learn more about DWI law in New York, I encourage you to explore our website, free books, blog, articles, and 600 plus You Tube Videos at


If you have a DWI or traffic related matter I urge you to pick up the phone and call me since it is likely I can answer your legal questions at 607-229-5184. I welcome your call.

My favorite quote: “Question Authority.”
