What Clients and Peers Say About H. Joel Newman

N. Aronoff - Client

Joel has represented my interests for many years with excellent results. He has the ideal attributes for a trial attorney.

Joel is thorough, but cost conscious. He does not over-charge and he allows the client to decide how deeply he will dive into the details of documents (which takes time).

Joel is unusually intelligent, creative and tenacious. He drills to the core of the issue at hand. He does not get diverted into trivial matters; he focuses on substance. This is both cost effective and (I find) is the best way to achieve a desirable result.

Joel is ethical and fair. Judges and opposing attorneys know this about him. These attributes are highly advantageous in trial, and they also enable Joel to establish both leverage and trust in negotiations, which is essential to achieving a favorable result.

Every attorney brags about how good they are, how they look after the client's interest and how hard they will fight. Joel is the real McCoy...and he doesn't brag about it.

Richard Flaum - Client

I have known Joel for over twenty years. He has represented my interests in all manner of cases in a number of different venues. Joel is extremely intelligent, and able to grasp the heart of the problem quickly, in order to facilitate the most expedient conclusion. I have always found him to be forthright, honest and has always put his clients interest first. As a result of this and his ability to work expediently through the court system we have never lost a case.

Carolyn Riegler - Client

Joel is a great attorney to work with. As a client I appreciated his patience and ability to work with different types of personalities to achieve the best results. He is very good at strategic thinking. I have also worked with Joel professionally, and can assure anyone he is one of the "good guys".

Greg Wilson, Driven Communications - Client

Joel is a thorough, conscientious attorney. Though his specialty is listed as business litigation, he is always available to offer proactive advise to prevent his clients from getting into situations where litigation is needed.

Norman Lippitt, Litigation Attorney - Peer Review

I endorse this lawyer. Joel had been my partner for over 20 years. While we operate in different firms today, Joel and I still work together on complex litigation matters. Joel's painstaking attention to detail and his brilliant legal strategy have led to many courtroom victories. I highly endorse Joel; he's one of the best.

Ryan Plecha, Litigation Attorney - Former Associate

Joel was a senior partner in the litigation department at Hyman Lippitt. I had the privilege to work directly with Joel on several cases. Joel has an extraordinary ability to digest complex legal and factual scenerios in devising novel theories and stratgeies to best represent his clients. He is a true tactition and legal theorist. I recommend Joel without hesitation.

Kimberly Stout, Criminal defense Attorney - Peer Review

I endorse this lawyer. Joel and I have worked together on several matters and I can attest to his excellent litigation skills. He has won all his recent jury trials. Although a tough advocate, he is very personable. I consider him a fine lawyer and a good friend.
