Birth Injury Settlement
Sandy did an excellent job representing me and my child in our birth injury case. While friendly with us, she stood up to the hospital and their attorneys. She is knowledgeable, informed, organized and easy to work with. I recommend Sandy to anyone whose otherwise perfect child was injured during labor and delivery. We are now equipped for the needs of our child in the future.

Outstanding attorney
Attorney Sandra Neuman is at the top of her field. Not only is she a talented attorney, she truly cares about her clients. Sandy will fight for you every step of the way. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who needs a medical malpractice lawyer.

Top notch attorney
I have already recommended Sandy Neuman to another person who was the victim of medical malpractice. She was so kind to my entire family. When we were unsure of the future Sany was there to pick us up and get the job done.

Highly Recommend!
I called several legal firms in the Pittsburgh area for advice on an injury my elderly father sustained in a doctor's office. Not one was interested...that is, until I reached out to Sandra Neuman. She answered the phone, listened to our case, and asked me to jot down details in an email. I soon received her call, saying she would happily represent my dad. I was immediately impressed with her successful case history in the malpractice field and her assurance that she could secure just compensation for my father's injury. Not only is she exceptionally competent, but Sandra treats her clients with respect, compassion, and kindness. My parents and I are eternally grateful to Sandra and highly recommend her services.

Medical Malpractice
Sandra was an exceptional attorney and attentive to the complexity of my case. She was thorough in evaluating the records and sought appropriate expert advice. Sandra was professional, honest and a genuine advocate for someone that was compromised by a medical error. Excellent communication skills throughout were appreciated.

Excellent Lawyer
Even though Sandra is a Medical Malpractice Lawyer, we contacted her for a personal issue. Her knowledge of the law is extensive and she could not be more dedicated and compassionate. We also contacted her for advice when a friend of the family was in a car accident in another state and needed a lawyer. Sandra helped them to find a lawyer that they were very happy with.

Underage drinking
Mrs Neuman was well prepared and did a great job in representing and defending me. She went out of her way to make sure I, along with the witness in the case, were properly prepared for what we would put through. She did her research and made the prosecutions case look like a child put it togheter. I was found not guilty and was cleared of any wrongdoing. I would highly recommend Mrs Neuman because of her intelligence, attention to detail, and ability to relate to her clients.

Legal help
She offered great advice to help me with my current legal situation that helped me get the results that I wanted/needed. Very intelligent and insightful and always willing to help you. She also never judged me for what i had done to get into the legal trouble and supported me throughout all of it.

Slip and Fall
Our case was handled very professionally with a friendly manner. Our calls and questions were answered promptly and we were kept informed of any developments. We were pleased with our treatment and the outcome.

Excellent lawyers/law firm
Several years ago I hired ms Newman and the firm she works with for my medical malpractice case. The outcome was excellent as we settled with arbitration without needing to go trial. All thru the process I was treated with the utmost respect.

A blessing
Although going through a medical malpractice case is painful, Sandy did everything and more to help lift the burden. She was truly a blessing in our lives!
Posted by Lauren | August 30, 2010
Compassionate and caring
I have already suggested to many people that if they suspect a medical mistake has occured that they should call Sandy Neuman. Sandy and her firm, Richards & Richards are the most prefessional and compassionate people I have ever dealt with. I cannot say enough about the way every person there treated us during this terrible time. Thank you Sandy. I will be happy to speak to anyone who wants to know what kind of attorney and person you are.
