Exceeds all expectations!
Mark Newman is the very best option as an attorney for you. Mark exceeded all of my expectations and is an excellent attorney. I was faced with an on the job life changing injury at a younger age in life unfortunately. I have known Mark on a personal level for years and when it was time to address my situation I contacted him immediately. He met with me right away. I presented him with a very difficult set of circumstances and a very powerful employer to challenge. Mark was very patient, detailed and extremely educated with his advice and legal counsel. I knew immediately Mark was the best option. He always handled everything on time, correctly and was very organized and professional. He met with me and contacted me regularly allowing me to take the time that I needed to prepare and answer all of my questions correctly. We went to court on more than one occasion due to continuances requested by my employer. Mark prevailed every time victoriously on my behalf in the courtroom. The final outcome was the very best that it could have possibly been. Mark is the best option. My family and I cannot thank him enough for what he accomplished for us. If you have taken the time to read this review then look no further. Mark Newman is who you should chose without any hesitation. Thank You Mark!

I Put My Trust in Him and He Came Through and More
I called Mark from a recommendation from my Doctor. I was injured and mentally beaten down from a concussion from work that trickled into one medical problem after another. Even when I just wanted to give up Mark took me through the process, listened and advocated for me time and time again. His final plea to the judge blew me away with, not only the legal knowledge but how much he really knew about me and my situation. We prevailed in what was a very unlikely win, mainly because of his apt knowledge and determination. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone.

Mark L. Newman, a Fabulous Workman's Compensation Lawyer!
In November 2006, I was injured on a field trip to a bowling alley that another teacher and I had taken our high school students on. I began medical care for my injury with my family doctor, but then after long delays on the submission of the necessary paperwork, and not being satisfied with the physical therapy I had been receiving, I switched medical care in August 2007 to my current chiropractor. In 2008, I received denials for medical care from Workman's Compensation, and after my chiropractor's unsuccessful attempts to get the denials overturned, my chiropractor recommended that I consult with a lawyer whose specialty was Workman's Compensation, and that's when he referred me to Mark L. Newman. Mark became my lawyer in May 2008, and from that time to the present, I never had to worry about who was doing what with the paperwork, because Mark took care of everything. When claims were denied, he immediately submitted the necessary paperwork to appeal the denials, consulted with my chiropractor, and kept me informed throughout. All questions that I may have had were answered within an hour, so his communication was outstanding, which was very reassuring to me. As important as it is to trust your doctor and believe in him or her, so must you trust your lawyer to do what is necessary, in order for you to receive the needed medical attention you deserve. Mark has been a phenomenal and exceedingly trustworthy lawyer for me. He succeeded in procuring two partial disability payments for me from Workman's Compensation, and we just settled with Workman's Compensation at a better than expected final settlement payment. Even my chiropractor was amazed with the two percentages of partial disability and the final settlement payments that I had received, and this says a lot due to my chiropractor being a certified Workman's Compensation doctor! I can't thank Mark enough for all that he's done for me, and although my back will never be 100% better, I'm able to live a quality life due to the medical care I received from my chiropractor, and thanks to Mark's intervention. Mark's knowledge, thoroughness, and expertise on Workman's Compensation law, eliminated the added stress of dealing with the law on my own, and allowed me to focus on getting the medical care I needed to heal my back. I highly recommend Mark L. Newman to clients who want to leave the law to Mark, so that they too can focus on healing their bodies after injuries on the job.

Caring, Ethical, Excellent, and Up To Date With Current Law
Mark has been my personal injury/workers compensation attorney since 2005. He truly cares about the client and it shows in his work ethic. My case was a little more complicated than most and Mark went above and beyond what I feel most attorneys would do to have the case heard. Mark continues to represent me and treats each issue that arises with my case as if it were his own.
