Highly recommend
Jordan dedicated over 2 years helping me and my children go through a difficult and challenging divorce. He never gave up on trying to achieve the best outcome for my children. Jordan was very effective at communicating with me in an open and honest way - how the process worked, what my role would be and how I could best support my case. His responsiveness to my emails was immediate, each and every time (and there were many). I trusted Jordan's judgment and would highly recommend him to anyone going through a divorce and/or child custody case.

Great attorney
I recently hired Jordan New to represent me in my child custody case. He was extremely responsive and worked very hard in ensuring I was given every possible option that would be best for myself, and most importantly, my child. His good judgement in everything that came up in my case gave me extreme confidence in him and his ability to guide me towards the best solution. I would recommend Mr. New to anybody in a divorce, separation, or child custody case.

Simply the best!
My family recently went through an unexpected upheaval, we believed we had no choice but to accept and move on from an unbearable and unthinkable situation. Then we had the privilege of having Jordan New and his firm make a stand on our behalf. Aside from being trustworthy, attentive, prompt and professional Jordan New went the extra mile to offer not only his legal expertise but his emotional support as well. Jordan was thoughtful, thorough, and patient. Not only did we prevail in court, the peace of mind Mr. New was able to give to my family is simply monumental. His representation far exceed even our highest expectations. We will be highly recommending Jordan New and his firm. Do not hesitate to hire Brincat & New they are FIRST CLASS.

Fantastic family law attorney
I hired Jordan for a custody and support dispute. He and the team at his firm were excellent. They were knowledgeable and responsive, and their billing practices were fair and transparent. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a family law attorney.

Jordan is amazing!
Jordan helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. He was thoughtful, thorough, had the utmost attention to detail, going above and beyond in every respect. He walked me through everything I needed to know about the process and assisted me by taking the stress off. I knew I could count on him to get the job done well. I would not hesitate to use him again, if I needed to and I refer him to everyone I know who needs a good attorney.

I highly recommend Jordan New for complicated divorce situations...
I have been working with Jordan New for almost 2 years to complete my divorce process with a highly uncooperative other party. This was a highly stressful process for myself and my children, we were faced with a lot of “unknowns” as we navigated through it. Not only was Jordan highly organized, efficient, and consistently available, he was a rock in my storm so to speak. While Jordan was very sympathetic to the situation my children and I were placed in, he helped to keep me grounded in the facts and the paths we needed to take forward to ultimately complete our process. Jordan is ethical, kind, and professional and these are the skills he utilizes to get the job done. Jordan is also highly intelligent and I never once had to question his legal advice or get another opinion. 18 months later, my divorce is complete and my life is finally able to start stabilizing. I recommend Jordan New to EVERYONE, He is the only attorney that I will ever use if future issues present themselves.

Outstanding Attorney!
I recently went through a divorce that lasted almost a year and a half.In the course of this divorce, Jordan's extensive knowledge in Family Law alongside Criminal justice has helped to take right decisions while dealing with a narcissistic and uncooperative ex. My divorce case in its nature was a bit complicated including an existing restraining order,extending restraining order, international law related to dowry and assets.Jordan's strong work ethics, attention to details,hard working nature,simplistic approach towards solving problem and amazing writing skills was added advantage in approaching this case a more professional and realistic manner.Anyone who has worked with Jordan will know his passion towards the work he has undertaken and how genuinely he is interested in helping his clients. In addition to the legal guidance , i am eternally thankful to Jordan New for the emotional and mental support he has provided me and my family throughout this difficult period. I would highly recommend Jordan and his law firm, Brincat & New to anyone in search of a thoughtful, caring legal crew.

I highly recommend Jordan as an attorney. I appreciate the way he handled my case from our initial phone call to our final settlement. I found Jordan to be professional, incredibly proficient in his family law knowledge and a man of integrity. He is a timely and effective communicator and always had my best interests at heart. I feel Jordan managed my legal aspects with candor, speed and an eye for detail. He is an expert in his field at what feels like a discounted rate.

Thorough and Knowledgeable
I was in need of legal advice on a short deadline. Mr. New jumped in, asked pertinent questions, and produced exactly what I needed, when I needed it. He was efficient and very fair with his fees. I have recommended Mr. New to many others and will continue to do so.

Very fair and reliable attorney
When I needed a prenup done, Jordan listened very carefully and addressed all of my concerns, and answered all of my questions throughout the process. His rate was way beyond fair, and any other attorney would have raked me over for all the unforeseen issues and added tasks that popped up. He is extremely personable and easy to reach. I highly recommend his services. Like many that have been through the various legal avenues, I'm not very fond of attorneys as a group, Ha! But I would trust him every time for any future family law services!

Family Law Lawyer Extrodinaire
Little did I know that when I hired Jordan New as my lawyer he would become one of the most important people in my life and my kids’ lives. I will eternally be grateful to him for being our advocate. He has been an incredible lawyer who has successfully navigated us through an incredibly difficult divorce (both legally and emotionally). He has won legal battle after legal battle with a finesse that demonstrates his natural gift for the law. I am so grateful for his ability to stay calm in the midst of the highest emotion. Jordan’s legal writing is breathtaking as well. He has a keen ability to integrate both straightforward and nuanced arguments into documents that present extremely compelling stories to the court. More than once have his briefs brought tears to my eyes as I read the words he wrote protecting my kids and me. I can depend on him to guide me to take the right actions when decisions have to be made both quickly and long-term. I would never hesitate to recommend Jordan New as a lawyer. He is worth his weight in gold.

Thorough and Honest
I sincerely appreciated the honesty and candor Jordan gave me. While trying to clean up the wreckage of my past, Jordan was an intrical part of that. While I didn't always like his answers, they were honest and upfront. In short, a very good man, and great attorney. Anyone who is privileged enough to hire Jordan will not be disillusioned, and will know first hand just what a great attorney he is. Kuddos Jordan!

Jordan New is an excellent attorney who clearly has his clients best interests in mind. Obviously one would think that is a given, but due to my past dealings with other attorneys, unfortunately that is not the case. Mr. New always returned my phone calls and other communications in a timely manner and made me feel that my legal issue was his and that ultimately I was in great hands. I felt extremely comfortable at all times with Mr. New and I am glad that I retained his services.

Comptetent and Practical
If you need to retain an attorney, I highly recommend Jordan. I had the pleasure of working with him at his previous law firm. He has a great reputation and is known for being highly competent and practical in his approach to resolving legal disputes.

Incredibly competent
We wanted a divorce but not a messy battle with the attorneys lining their pockets while we capsized under the court system. The decision of divorce is hard enough. Now add the part to try to restructure your life with financial stability. And then add the part to pay an attorney to sort through your mess. Money spent on getting mad or getting even, is money wasted. Way too often I witnessed the uncertain landscape of a messy divorce, end up as a platform to financial disaster. In the beginning, we felt we were bypassing additional pain and agony by not spending time and resources on an attorney. After we divorced, unfortunately, the journey had just begun. Doing it ourselves in the end, didn't work. Post divorce, I experienced a never ending struggle to stay the course. There were endless excuses as to why things were not done. Payments that were not made. Endless emails were received to try to counter and delay what we agreed on, after we had finalized our divorce. I wish I had met Mr. New from day one. His call backs and emails were quick and tidy. He let me dive in, sort through everything and tell him what I needed. He's professional, yet thoughtful, and worked thoroughly to meet my objectives. And he's competitive with a passion while he wanted me to get the best possible situation I could, given my circumstances. What surprised me the most was how fast and effective he was. He won't string you out, which saves time and money. He's a quick study without coming off as impersonal. And he knows the priorities of what needs to be addressed. He managed everything carefully and in the end achieved what was always needed. Sharon S

Impressive and prompt service! Truly a pleasure to work with!
When my ex-husband’s loan officer informed me that the underwriters needed clarification of our divorce decree, I did not think it was possible with my time constraints, because I am currently in the process of trying to close on a house in less than a week. My ex-husband is also in the process of refinancing our home to remove my name from the loan and title before I can close on my new purchase. My broker's attorney friends recommended Jordan New to assist with amending my divorce decree, which also required a signature by a judge. I contacted Jordan on Tuesday evening to explain my situation and provided him with the information he needed. Jordan had the documents ready the next morning so that my ex-husband and I could have it signed/notarized and returned to him before Friday. Jordan was willing to drive to the Washington County Courthouse to obtain a signature from a judge to expedite this process. It was early Friday afternoon when Jordan returned my Modification Judgment so I had adequate time to submit this to my ex-husband's loan officer before the end of the day. Jordan's fee is also quite reasonable, and he was willing to waive the filing fee, which exceeded his retainer fee. I highly recommend Jordan New to anyone who is looking for an attorney with his expertise.

Thorough, empathetic and responsive
Living through a divorce was emotionally draining and the last thing you want to deal with is all of the legal issues surrounding your transition. Jordan was extraordinarily helpful - he was not only responsive but also was able to help keep me grounded and focused on only the issues that needed to be resolved. He was a true advocate for me and I would highly recommend him to handle any divorce case.
