High-profile Michigan attorney opens new law firm
Online PR News – 22-July-2011 – – BIRMINGHAM, Mich., — Birmingham attorney H. Joel Newman has formed a new law firm that specializes in complex litigation and trials, including commercial litigation, shareholder and partnership disputes, attorney malpractice and stockbroker fraud. Mr. Newman was a founding shareholder of Hyman Lippitt, PC. He will remain in the former Hyman Lippitt office suite at 322 North Old Woodward in Birmingham.
Newman, a founding member and shareholder of Hyman Lippitt PC, has won multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients, including the defense of an automotive company in a case brought by two major mobile home manufacturers seeking eight figure damages. Newman secured dismissal of more than 90% of the claims and settled the remainder for nuisance value.
“At this point in my career, I am grateful that I now have the ability to focus my work solely on trials and litigation and less on management,” Newman said.
Newman is a University of Michigan Law School graduate and holds a bachelor’s degree from Wayne State University, where he was selected to join Phi Beta Kappa, a prestigious academic honor society that promotes excellence in liberal arts and sciences at American universities and colleges.
He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan (Masters, Business Law, Litigation and Real Property Sections), the American Constitution Society, and the Oakland County Bar Association.
