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.
