About 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. We have the medical and legal expertise required to stay at the forefront of the law. And we try cases that other lawyers settle.
