To some, Dan Newlin can be described as a hero or a life saver. The attorney who has offices in Chicago and Central Florida has in the past few years made a name for himself as one of the best injury attorneys in the country. The attorney started out as a police officer and a firefighter for the Indiana Police Department and Fire Department nearly two decades ago. He went on to become an Orange County Sheriff detective and then as a detective in the Fugitive Division. While here, he helped put away many fugitives and was feted by the United States Marshall Service. In 1997, he actually attended law school at the Florida State College of Law and graduated in 2000.
He founded his firm Dan Newlin and Partners and the attorney is licensed to practice in both Chicago and Florida. The firm focuses on personal injury, auto accidents, construction site accidents, injury cases, medical negligence/malpractice, and wrongful death. The firm has been recognized as a Super Lawyer Law Firm, an award that places them among the top 5% law firms in Florida. It is an understatement to describe the law firm as a power house.
In 2014, he opened an office in Chicago, his home state that he described as a natural move for his firm. Attorney Newlin has time and time again helped his clients to obtain justice and has helped the citizens of Florida recover more than $150 million from injury claims.
In November 2014, Mr. Newlin obtained a $100 million verdict for Danielle Simpson and her family. In July 2012, while riding in the back of her family’s minivan was shot in the head by a stray bullet. The bullet came from a gun owned by a Tyrone Mosby, a renowned gang member. The verdict secured against Tyrone will cover hospital payments, punitive damages, and emotional distress. Tyrone was sentenced to jail and for whatever income he earns a portion of it will go into helping Danielle. Danielle’s mother, Alma Fletcher said that although it was a win, it was a small one since her daughter could still not talk to her. Danielle’s stepfather, Justin Fletcher touted it as the closest they would get to closure.
Just this year, he won a settlement case against the auto insurance company, Mainstreet America Group. He negotiated a 950,000$ settlement for the Edward Krutsinger, who was involved in an accident in November 2013. The Krutsinger’s filed a lawsuit against the company in March of 2014 after the company failed to compensate them in any way after the accident. The insurance firm questioned the injuries sustained and dismissed them as fraudulent. Daniel Newlin touched another soul by helping them get justice.
