I hired Larry after being charged with DWAI drugs, two charges of CPCS 7th, uninsured motor vehicle and unsafe lane departure. I was in active addiction when the incident resulting in these charges occurred, following the arrest I went to inpatient rehabilitation and relocated. Larry ensured I did not have to come back to upstate New York any more than absolutely necessary. Larry counseled me and ensured I understood the charges and potential consequences throughout the entire process. I was able to call him; ask any questions or verbalize any concerns I had and get a response, typically he answered the phone when I called, within hours at most. Ultimately Larry was able to have the two CPCS 7th charges, violation of unsafe lane departure and uninsured motor vehicle dropped and I ended up pleading to DWAI drugs. Following me pleading guilty to DWAI drugs I had to have a PSI/presentence investogation), something Larry had explained to me early on, with the probabtion department where I relocated to. The probation department where I relocated to is known for being very strict with driving under the influence charges; therefore they reccommeded incarceration and probation. Larry was able to explain the strict nature of the probabtion department in the area I relocated to so the Judge could understand. I ended up being sentenced to 2 years probation, what I consider to be the best possible outcome. I am a licensed professional and my license just came up for renewal as well, Larry has been walking me through the process of renewing my license with this new charge on my record. He has continued to always be available and answer all questions I have in a concise and clear manner. I am so very thankful to Larry for going above and beyond; he did an amazing job and continues to be there for me as a client even though my court case is technically settled.

When I first met with Mr Newman he kept talking about how he could get the case dismissed. He did an excellent job of pointing out all the officers mistakes. His knowledge and confidence sold me. After my first court date he continued to provide me with reassurance and made me feel very comfortable. After 3 months of court dates and continually telling me that he is fighting for me Larry suddenly told me we had no shot of winning and that the DA was getting upset with how long the case was going on and that I should just take a plea deal so that I didn't upset them further and get a more severe penalty. I would of had the same results with a court appointed attorney. One of the biggest dissapointments was that when I did plead guilty and sentenced he simply said good luck to me and that he had to go. He was in his car before I left the courtroom. Another attorney there was kind enough to explain what I needed to do from that point.

Lawrence Newman successfully defended me in a DUI case about 5 years ago. I did end up pleading to DUAI but that was much better than the original charge. However, this review is more about what happened this week. I was filling out some employment forms and had a question related to my case and I called Lawrence Newman and left a voice mail. He called me back in a timely manner and answered all of my questions in an extremely helpful and friendly manner. He did this without asking for any money. I highly recommend him!

If you're in need of a great criminal defense lawyer in Ithaca, NY you have no need to look any further. Larry Newman is easily one of the most competent and respectable lawyers I've ever worked with. Gave me a great rate and helped me get my charge dismissed. I even needed some clarification about my case 7 years later and he replied within minutes and helped me clear up my questions. Highly recommended!!!!!

I was facing a fourth DWI conviction with very serious consequences. Larry Newman and Michael Cyr were very sincere and professional about handling my unique situation. Without these guys i would have lost my son, job, and home! I can't thank them enough for what they've done for me. I first consulted with a huge name attorney always on the radio. Then i realized with the distance, how often would i see the attorney in person? So after reading reviews for local attorneys that specifically represented people with DWI offenses; i called Cyr and Newman because of the amazing genuine ratings i had read. My first call i spoke with Larry for about an hour. He immediately knew the only way i might have a chance is to have an attorney get my story out there. I'm a worry wart and Larry had tons of patience and time to help reassure me of every possible outcome of each court hearing. With Larry and Michael together i felt very confident that i had chosen the right attorneys to represent me. Every individuals case is unique but i can guarantee you that you won't find smarter, more thorough, sincere, and compassionate attorneys than these guys! The reviews were important for me to even make that first phone call. So to thank them i wanted to leave a heartfelt honest review. In hopes that my story might help convince someone else facing very serious DWI charges, to take the leap of faith and choose these two stand up gentlemen. I lost none of the things that were in jeopardy. I received no jail time for a fourth DWI. I'm not proud but doesn't that speaks volumes as to why you would want them on your team.I was facing a fourth DWI conviction with very serious consequences.

Everyone makes mistakes, it takes very special people to see past the bad and recognize the good in you! Make the call! I probably would be in jail or prison right now if i hadn't made that first call. Thanks again guys from the bottom of my heart! I'm forever in debt to you guys.

I hired Lawrence Newman for my personal injury case when I had a car accident and injured my knee.
I went through a very long treatment period including knee surgery and months of physical therapy.
During this difficult time it was relieving to have Mr. Newman on my side so that I knew I am in professional hands, I didn't have to think about my case and I was able to focus on my healing.
Besides him being very knowledgeable, very organized and professional, he cares about your health and well-being first.
He explained to me every detail about the case very clearly. He kept me updated all the time and answered all my questions very kindly. He was very realistic about what to expect and that turned out to be true when the case settled recently. It was the best settlement I could get from my case and I wouldn't be able to deal with this without Mr.Newman.
He is an outstanding lawyer, I highly recommend Lawrence Newman.

Larry gave a great impression from the moment we sat down and met. After my arrest, I thought my life was over and my future career was in jeopardy. Larry helped ease my anxiety and view it as a "life experience" rather than a necessary, legal obligation. He is always available by phone and open to any question. I wouldn't have wanted any other experience than I got working with Larry- he made me and my family feel hopeful. A friend of mine faced a similar (but lesser) situation ~4 months after my incident and Larry was very open to allowing my friend to reach out with some questions. 2 months after my court date, I still have contact with Larry. He reduced my 5 charges to 1. A very scary experience made truly comfortable.

I received a speeding ticket and contacted Larry. He was extremely helpful in walking me through the process, providing me with the necessary information I needed and was always available to address any questions I had along the way. I would recommend him to anyone in need of this type of service.

Larry provided good, attentive service when I was charged with a DWI in New York and made a difficult situation more comfortable. Nearly seven years later, He also wrote a letter that helped me secure a professional license. He provided the letter immediately and did not accept additional compensation, even though I offered.
I recommend and thank Larry.

Although Lawrence was not my direct attorney he offered more reliable and better information than the attorney I've hired. He truly knows his trade and is an excellent source of info.
