Dzenitis Newman, PLLC

Dzenitis Newman is a law firm dedicated to the defense of healthcare professionals. Before forming the firm, the attorneys at Dzenitis Newman built the medical malpractice and long-term care practice groups of a large, multi-state law firm. They left in January 2016, to create a firm better suited to meet the needs of their clients.

The attorneys at Dzenitis Newman have decades of trial experience defending doctors, hospitals, long-term care facilities, and other healthcare providers. Our attorneys provide clients with effective and efficient representation, starting with the first phone call and continuing through trial.
