LaPorte County’s Largest Law Firm
With over a century of service to Northern Indiana’s individuals, businesses, schools and governments, Newby Lewis Kaminski & Jones LLP embodies a rich, long-standing commitment to our community and Northern Indiana.
Our firm is the largest in LaPorte County and the majority of our attorneys and staff were raised here. So our familiarity with the local economy, the courts, and institutions enables us to provide our clients with experienced legal representation that is thoughtful, efficient, and cost-effective.
Newby, Lewis, Kaminski & Jones, LLP received a metropolitan Tier 1 ranking in the 2017 edition of U.S. News – Best Lawyers ® “Best Law Firms” in the areas of commercial litigation, criminal defense, insurance law, litigation – labor and employment, medical malpractice law, and personal injury litigation.
Law firms cannot pay to receive this ranking. Instead, this Tier 1 ranking was determined through the firm’s overall evaluation, which was derived from a combination of its clients’ impressive feedback, the high regard that lawyers in other firms in the same practice areas have for the firm, and information provided by the firm in response to a law firm survey from Best Lawyers.
We are here, and will continue to be here, to assist you.
Consider the many areas in which our firm has experience: personal injury and wrongful death, medical malpractice, state and federal criminal defense, estate planning, wills and probate, labor and employment, real estate and zoning, business law, family law, general litigation, civil defense, appeals, bankruptcy, environmental law and school law.
Our attorneys remain updated on how best to serve their clients through continuing legal education.
More than anything, we understand the importance of being community leaders. We take active roles in community organizations, legal associations and serve the La Porte community as board members of non-profit agencies.
Areas of Practice
The induction ceremony at which David Jones became a Fellow took place recently before an audience of 900 persons during the recent 2017 Annual Meeting of the College in Montréal, Québec.
Founded in 1950, the College is composed of the best of the trial bar from the United States and Canada. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of ethical conduct, professionalism, civility and collegiality. Lawyers must have a minimum of fifteen years trial experience before they can be considered for Fellowship.
Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyer population of any state or province. There are currently approximately 5,800 members in the United States and Canada, including active Fellows, Emeritus Fellows, Judicial Fellows (those who ascended to the bench after their induction) and Honorary Fellows. The College maintains and seeks to improve the standards of trial practice, professionalism, ethics, and the administration of justice through education and public statements on independence of the judiciary, trial by jury, respect for the rule of law, access to justice, and fair and just representation of all parties to legal proceedings. The College is thus able to speak with a balanced voice on important issues affecting the legal profession and the administration of justice.
David Jones is a partner at Newby Lewis Kaminski & Jones, LLP, and has been practicing law for 24 years. The newly inducted Fellow is an alumnus of Valparaiso University School of Law.
Novak, a Michigan City native, joined NLKJ in 2014 and has built a busy legal practice advising individuals and businesses in various corporate matters, estate planning, probate, and real estate and land use. Additionally, Anthony has been active in the community serving on various boards including Michigan City Chamber of Commerce’s Lakefront Career Network, Hours for Ours, and Barker Woods Enrichment Center.
On Thursday, October 26, 2017, the NWI Times will host an awards dinner at Blue Chip Casino, Stardust Event Center, to honor Anthony and his fellow 20 Under 40 inductees. Information about the awards dinner can be found here.
