  • It was really a miracle that I met you and asked you to represent me as my lawyer.
    Jeremy, I don't think that I can thank you enough for helping me with my case. It was really a miracle that I met you and asked you to represent me as my lawyer. Even though the police arrest report was so derogatory to me, you were able to speak on my behalf and convince the prosecutor that I was the actual victim in the case. And today at the Office Conference, it was such a pleasure watching you defend me to the Board of Pharmacy representatives. Every year of your experience showed through the things that you said to them to persuade them to keep my record as pharmacy professional clear. I'm so grateful for the opportunity of having you represent me twice, in two different settings. Each time you exceeded my expectations in what an attorney could possibly do for a client. Thank you so much for believing in me throughout my case and doing such a superb job as an attorney. I wish you all the best and continued success in all of your cases!

  • Looking for an outstanding criminal defense attorney? I found one in Jeremy Lessem!
    Mr. Lessem represented me in a stalking case; I was the victim in this matter. I had tried previously to obtain a protective order but failed; however, with Mr. Lessem as my attorney, a years-long problem was finally successfully resolved. Mr. Lessem was professional, extremely well-prepared, and incredibly persuasive in court. Just as important, he made sure that I knew just what to expect in court so that when the time came to testify, I felt confident that by just telling the truth and describing what had transpired, justice would be served and it was.
  • Going to Battle with the Best
    Frivolous attacks and threats can come from anywhere at any time. The one I received recently was potentially damaging to me personally and to my business. My heart was in my stomach, my life was in disarray, I couldn't work effectively, and this issue took over my personal life. The end result if it had gone poorly could have been devastating. I called Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP and attorney Joshua Newstat assisted me. Immediately, the threat was dissected and analyzed at all angles to determine how to best approach my serious problem. I feel that was a very critical component, as the wrong move could have definitely created a nightmare for me. Joshua made several key and strategic calls with various parties and within a few weeks, he had checkmated my attacker. The matter was no longer an issue. What started as an enormous ball of stress for me, quickly diffused into nothing and my life continued back to normal. Nothing replaces your peace of mind. There is no better feeling, than to know you are going to battle with the best. Joshua Newstat is an advocate that is polished yet aggressive, thoughtful yet decisive, intelligent - both book smart and street smart, extremely resourceful, crafty...I could continue on. The firm and Joshua Newstat needs to be in your contacts whenever you need help, an incredible asset to have on your side in your most desperate times of need.
  • An absolutely huge thank you to everyone at Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP
    When I unexpectedly ran into legal problems, to say I was at a low point in my life would be an understatement. In addition to the circumstances that culminated in a criminal charge, I was now facing a criminal record, the loss of my job and I couldn't exactly rule out jail time. After searching online, I gave the offices of Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP a call and was immediately patched through to Mr. Lessem. Despite the misgivings I had about the rather rushed research I had done before calling, he quickly put me at ease and gave me such a sense of relief. He explained the process in front of me, the possible outcomes and the financial terms clearly, answering my panicked questions. Immediately he and Mr. Newstat set to work and took care of everything. I was under personal stress, I knew nothing of the criminal justice system, I was blindsided by a criminal charge and they took care of everything! Leading up to my court date, Mr. Newstat was in regular contact, making sure I had my ducks were in a row. My emails to the office were even answered during weekends and evenings. I reside out of the country and he was able to represent me in court and arranged everything so that I wouldn't have to quit my job to board an airplane destined for court or jail. This whole time I was able to stay home and emerged from this whole ordeal relatively unscathed. Today I have such a heavy burden off my shoulders and I have put this period of my life in the past, thanks in no small part to the professionalism and efficacy of the firm.
  • I was very pleased to hear of the outcome
    Thank you so much for your job on my son's behalf. I was very pleased to hear of the outcome and he was very relieved and motivated to continue his work towards establishing himself as a productive person who is an asset rather than a detriment to the community. I appreciate all your efforts and your patience in listening/working with David and myself late into the evening. He truly has a good heart and is fighting the battle of his life. Again, many thanks.
  • We have the “A” team working for us.
    Thank you for meeting with me and C this afternoon and for spending so much time with us. It is reassuring to know that we do indeed have the "A" team working for C. I am confident that he will be fully exonerated, hopefully sooner rather than later. Patience never has been a hallmark virtue of the Davis family, however knowing the process is really helpful and relieves some angst.
  • Their No. 1 Priority is Achieving Positive Outcomes for Clients
    Recently, a member of my family had a scrape with the law. I contacted the Law Firm and requested their representation. Joshua E. Newstat, Esq. accepted the case. He explained what to expect regarding his investigation from beginning to end. He kept me well-informed in every step of his investigation, going to the ends of the earth and back to get a case dismissed everyone else said would be sadly impossible. Mr. Newstat's support staff was always responsive and he was always available which helped settle my anxiety and the pressure I was feeling. My compliments to the Law Firm of Lessem, Newstat & Tooson, LLP. Clearly, their No. 1 priority is achieving positive outcomes for their clients. Thank you.
  • No Jail Time
    Getting my DUI was a very scary thing for me. Not knowing what I was up against, I turned to the law firm, which came highly recommended through a friend. I was amazed to learn that I didn't have to do anything else from the moment my case was in their hands. Blowing more than twice the legal BAC, Joshua Erin Newstat got me off with no jail time. He handled my case thoroughly and with professionalism.
  • I just want to say thank you for your expert handling of my son's case this summer.
    A definite lesson learned for him. We won't hesitate to contact you again should the need arise (but we hope it won't!).
  • Thank you for all the work you put into my case and for believing in me
    Yesterday, I found out that my case was dismissed! I was so happy to find out, there were tears in my eyes.
  • Having a clean record has allowed me to pursue a successful future
    I received my CA insurance license today. In order to become licensed I had to pass an exam and a background check. This would have never been possible without your tremendous success on my cases. Having a clean record has allowed me to pursue a successful future. I can't thank you guys enough for what you have done for me.
