A straight shooter with a passion for the right thing.
Mr. Novey took over my case after another firm dropped the ball. He was patient and professional. He is constantly available to answer questions. His staff treat me like family. I cannot say enough about his being a straight shooter. Here you get the real story. He sets expectations and delivers. If something changes he will advise you about it. Professional yet to the point. Courteous and smart. Answers questions and delivers answers.

Actually Cares.
Don, is a straight shooter. Prompt, on time and explains things very well. There is no sloppy or lack of professionalism. I'm living out a better life now and he was there to make sure I got the help I needed. Not sure what else I can say. Its usually never a good time when we have to get a lawyer involved, but Don was an advocate and not just a lawyer. If you are reading this, you are in the right place.

Professional, Honest, Dedicated, and Knowledgeable
My corporation hired Mr. Novey for a labor claim our company was facing. In a short period of time the matter went to trial and Mr. Novey was extremely prepared. He engaged the other side, a quite formidable opposition, with total confidence and aggressiveness. Despite every effort made by the opposing side to shift the focus of the case, even to the point of introducing witness testimony about an unrelated incident in which a Black Bear was shot and killed by a fellow employee, Mr. Novey was able to keep his courtroom composure, recovered from the unsuspecting ploy, and persevered. Mr. Novey won our case and the plaintiff was awarded nothing. I would not hesitate to retain his services again, if needed.
