Highly recommend!My father died at the hands of physicians, caregivers and staff members at a long-term care facility. He was neglected and abused during his final weeks of life. His required tests were not done, his medications were not administered properly, and his physical condition was not checked, despite staff being paid to attend to his needs. Although we had visited him regularly, during the week that I was unable to stop in to see him, he was ignored, overdosed and finally whisked off to the emergency room only after a nurse who had just returned from vacation noticed his desperate condition. He was not able to recover. Certain that what was done to him was not up to standards, I contacted Mr. Newman. I wanted to be sure that this did not happen to anyone else and that the facility changed how they cared for the elderly. Dan helped us attain records and testimony, relentlessly working to discover what happened, establish a timeline, and prove to the courts that my father had been neglected to the point that he suffered irreversible and unrecoverable harm that led to his untimely death. Without a doubt, the aggressive pursuit of the truth by Mr. Newman and his associates along with his willingness to answer our questions and support us led to a positive outcome to an otherwise bleak and desperate situation. I would highly recommend Mr. Newman to anyone has a family member that has experienced a similar situation.

Dan genuinely cares about the elderly and disabledDan was invaluable in helping me achieve a favorable result in a lawsuit against a national hospice agency that placed money above the suffering of its dying patients. My preliminary interviews with several so-called elder abuse lawyers were disheartening, until I met Dan. I selected Dan for many reasons, including his extensive experience with elder abuse litigation; his calm and reassuring professionalism (minus the usual arrogance); his understanding of my need to focus attention on—in hopes of deterring—the hospice’s mistreatment of those entrusted to its care; his willingness to invest the time and resources necessary to attain these goals; and his sensitivity to the overwhelming emotional issues involved in these cases. Dan was not only responsive to returning my calls and answering my questions and concerns, he went the extra mile to provide exceptional service (e.g., taking time out of his busy schedule to drive 35 miles to my home for meetings when I was unable to drive to his office). Dan genuinely cares about the elderly and disabled. For these reasons, I give Dan my highest recommendation without any reservation.

They were there for me throughout the processI was referred to Newman Law Group at a very traumatic time of my life. My mother was the victim of abuse, which eventually led to her death in a care facility. The representation and care I received at Newman Law Group was very professional and satisfied my needs. They were there for me throughout the process.

We were honored to have his representationAfter the unexpected and unexplained death of our Father in 2006, Daniel Newman performed a dedicated investigation and provided our family with answers to many questions. His compassion, knowledge, and unending commitment provided our family a final resolve in this matter. We were honored to have his representation. Our family deeply appreciated his efforts. We are confident he will continue to provide that same resolve to many, many others.

Dan is someone you can lean on for support and to do the right thingMy father's death was so unexpected because he was murdered in a convalescent home. The home tried to cover the cause of death and I was lied to. With calls from investigators, the coroner's office and still getting no answers, I reached out to a law firm. They too gave me the run around and I was still not getting answers to what happened. Finally, after much frustration, I reached out to Dan Newman. He was compassionate, listened to my frustration and struggles to get the answers to my questions on what happened to my father. Dan worked extremely hard for us and was very aggressive in seeking out the facts. Dan discovered the truth and pursued justice for my father's horrible, inexcusable death. Dan is someone you can lean on for support and to do the right thing. He will work extremely hard and recommend what is best for you and your family because you come first in his eyes. Dan is someone that you know will be there for you even after the dust settles. I can call him a friend and I know whoever he represents will feel the same.
