Who We Are

What makes our firm different than the “typical” law firm? For starters, we understand that you are busy. Busy building a family, a career, a prosperous future. You want to be sure that you’re making the right decisions for yourself and your loved ones, and that your plan will work when it is needed most. You need to know that your children will be taken care of if anything happens to you.

In short, you want lawyers who will help you through every stage of life’s journey, and do so in the most convenient, courteous and effective manner possible.

At Newman Law Group, we have developed unique systems to provide you with the counsel you need to build and maintain a life of prosperity and wealth, and to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with having a plan in place for the future. We encourage steady and open communication with all of our clients. This is why you are never considered “on the clock” when you call with a questions. We bill on a flat-fee basis, with the fee agreed upon in advance, so you will never get a “surprise” bill from our office in the mail.  We have an entire team in place to serve you. If you call the office, you won’t have to wait hours or days for us to get back to you. When you want to meet with us, we will work around your schedule, not ours.

In addition, we strive to keep your plan up to date, to take into account changes in your family, your financial situation, and the law itself. We have created unique membership programs to accomplish this, and utilize a “funding coordinator” to ensure your assets are safe during your lifetime and available for your loved ones after you pass away.

Finally, we believe your financial wealth is only part of what you wish to pass on to your children and other loved ones. We design plans to address issues such as your values, your hopes for the future and that of the people you love, and other intangible matters.

We invite you to contact us and set up a meeting to get to know one another. We welcome the opportunity to serve as your lawyers for life.

Our Team

Nicole Y. Newman, Esq.

nicole-newmanNicole formed Newman Law Group to fulfill her dream of throwing out the old, broken down model of the estate planning industry where documents are prepared and no real relationship with the client is formed. Instead, Nicole aims to become a trusted source to guide her clients through the complicated and often confusing maze of financial and legal decisions to create plans that ensure the well-being of their families and the accomplishment of cherished family goals. Her considerable legal expertise includes family protection, wealth preservation, and values-based planning, as well as planning strategies for unmarried couples and divorced individuals. Nicole also excels in guiding her clients to pass on more than just their financial wealth, but a far more valuable intangible wealth – who they are and what is important to them. Nicole resides in Anaheim Hills with her daughter, Jilana, and their three dogs. She is licensed to practice law in California.
