Brett Newman graduated with a degree in economics from Syracuse University in 1989. As managing partner of The Lien Resolution Group, Mr. Newman is known nationally by plaintiff attorneys for his expertise on claims avoidance and reduction.
During the eighteen years subsequent to earning his degree, Mr. Newman consulted with clients in both the business and financial sectors. In 2002, he established the New York based company, Plaintiff Solutions, to provide plaintiffs with objective financial advice at the time of settlement.
Recognizing the ever growing nature of lien resolution and the ever-increasing associated liability, Mr. Newman helped establish The Lien Resolution Group and Plaintiff Solutions. The mutual objective of these two companies is to assist both individual claimants of personal injury lawsuits and mass tort claimants in the protection of their proceeds and government benefits.
Mr. Newman is active in his community, and he takes particular pride in the role he plays in training settlement professionals to expand their knowledge beyond the traditional structure broker and attorney relationship.
