My life was changed.
I am now on a first name basis with Mr. Newland. I call him Gary because `I consider him a part of my family. He managed a very stressful situation calmly and secured all the funds from the insurance company without any stress. Thank you Gary.

A sigh of relief!
On the advice of a friend, I consulted with Mr. Newland. I believed I was in serious legal trouble but he patiently explained why this was not the case and lifted a tremendous weight off my mind. I'm sure there are a lot of lawyers that would have taken my money but Mr. Newland simply treated me with respect and assured me I was fine.

Stressful but worked out thanks to Gary
There really is no need for me to explain to anyone how stressful a court case might be, especially when it happens at a wrong time. Gary Newland is a person who made mine and my wifes life at that point much easier and from the very first meeting assured me that I have nothing to worry about. These are not just words. He really solved a difficult situation for us. Thank you Gary from the bottom of my heart.

aggressive and professional
Mr. Newland represented me when I fell at Walmart. My life was forever changed. He was very experienced with Walmart cases and obtained the video. He was able to convince Walmart to pay a significant amount of money. Two lawyers turned down my case and then I was referred to Newland & Newland by a friend that happened to be another lawyer. I highly recommend Mr. Newland

Peace of Mind! It matters who your attorney is!
If you are not sure who to use then go to Newland & Newland LLP. I met with a several lawyers. Gary told me it was good to shop around and put no pressure on me. I chose Gary because he new the doctors involved, he had cases with the adjuster, he new what treatment I had and what I would need and could explain it clearer than my doctor at times. He also told the truth about how long the case would take. Was not in for quick short money. My treatment went on for sometime. I chose him because of his experience although he is a good guy as well. I know I made the right choice. The settlement was everything I needed. I highly recommend the entire firm. Helpful and responsive.

I was looking to hire a lawyer to defend me in a lawsuit so I went for the free consultation. He told me that my homeowners insurance should cover my case. He suggested that I file a claim with my insurance. He was right. His free advise saved me a lot of money and headaches. I am thankful that I went to see him.

An Attorney Who Cares About Your Peace Of Mind
Sit down with Gary Newland and you begin to feel at ease. Here, in front of you, is a professional—a man known to a lot of people as a friend—who has a thriving Law Practice in the hub of Chicago’s NW suburbs, Arlington Heights. From his pictures, it looks like he has a thriving family as well. Sure you need timely and accurate legal advice, and you have made some mistakes along the way, but at no time are you judged. If anything with Gary, he tells you--and you truly feel—that you are not alone in your situation. In itself, that is comforting. But again, the lecture just doesn’t come. Hackneyed legal phrases and solutions swirling on the web and plucked off-the-cuff from every legal wannabe you would give ear to gently fade away at the onset of Gary’s questions: “What is in your family’s best interests,” and “what actions will allow you and your wife to sleep well every night?” This type of line of questioning continues. Adherence to the Law becomes your new tenet as you listen to Gary; even if you were a prudent person previously, your good character and sound practices are strengthened. Gary brings his new brand of Law, a “holistic legal approach,” right to you, meshing many facets of your life into a legal ‘road map’ you will construct with him. Funny, but after feeling the ‘punch to the budget’ by corporate attorneys in my professional life, I had no sense of the consultation’s time or any meeting’s time, for that matter—you are on Gary’s Team and he will see you through this difficulty. And so it was during my encounters with Gary. I solved my immediate legal problems as quickly as was possible and set up a path with a new network of people in place to ensure that dealings would be handled correctly going forward. I believe Gary’s firm handles a wide variety of legal work. My guess after many office visits and many hours speaking with Gary is that his “holistic” approach carries through to his entire staff across all legal arenas. I would highly recommend him for all Law matters—although I am told he excels in Personal Injury, Workers Compensation, Food Poisoning, Foreclosure Ddefense, Estate Planning and Real Estate Law as well. 8-8, 7 days a week: That might be the answer to the question, “what are his office hours?” He is a hard-working man: Very impressive. Quite often I would receive a response to a quick e-mail; Gary and his staff are always looking to put your mind at ease when they can. Finally….. The costs involved now appear to be miniscule compared to the return I received—and the sleep I gained: My wife too. I highly recommend Gary. Hope your experience is equal to mine.

Knowledgeable and Reasonable
I came to Gary Newland for help because I was injured, fired, was loosing my house and my wife was leaving me. I think I did not really believe things would get better but a friend of mine that was represented by Newland & Newland explained my life was worth fighting for and talked me into meeting with Mr. Newland. Mr. Newland explained that the process was not going to be a sprint but a was a marathon and he took a great deal of time to explain how he would be compensated and set me up for a payment plan to save my house from foreclosure. He also explained he did not represent folks with divorce and wrongful termination and referred me to other lawyers. He handled my work comp claim and was paid in the end and also found out that he could file a personal injury claim as well. His staff was very nice and he always called me back but since he is busy it was not as quickly as I would like. Mr. Newland was always willing to meet with me when I was stressed out. I have had a total of 4 lawyers and there is a difference. I thought it was interesting how when we went to court everyone new him so well from the sheriff to the other attorneys. I felt very comfortable because he was very familiar with the system. People from the court house came up to him and other lawyers asked legal questions of him and it was fascinating to watch and listen. This guy is a good guy to have in your corner wants to leave you better. He deserves respect and that is why I call him Mr. Newland even though he asked to be called Gary. Everything worked out real well and I have a good life.

Truly excellent lawyer
Gary is not only an excellent lawyer, he is an excellent person. He has a way of handling stressful situations in a very calm and understanding matter. He handled my situation to perfection and maximized what I could get out of it. Highly recommended.
Posted by Alex | April 13, 2013
Thank you Gary
I met with several lawyers before hiring Gary Newland. Gary had a systematic approach for dealing with my issues and I had several. He said how important it was to leave me better over all. Basically Newland and Newland LLP represented me in a workers compensation case and a personal injury case. With money collected my family is taken care of and I will not need to return to work. He also got me a loan modification on my house. The firm also represented my parents and helped them keep their home. Gary always got back to me when I called although sometimes not as quickly as I would like but would even call me on weekends and evenings

When you need help go to Newland & Newland LLP
It is a long story but I have 14 properties left and had 20 investment properties. Gary and his firm got me out of a mess. Several lawyers referred me so I new who to use for my problem. I went form being over 5000 cash flow negative to over 6000 cash flow positive. Got out of several bad real estate investments and I did not need to file for bankruptcy. I also had a second mortgage foregiven and 14 loan modifications. Talked with many lawyers but the only that really understood was Gary. The fees were reasonable and the temperment and professionalism is outstanding.
