Practice Areas

Justice Sandra Schultz Newman has spent more than 30 years in court on both sides of the bench. She has tried or heard thousands of cases dealing with issues ranging from family Law and personal injury to medical malpractice, workers’ compensation and zoning matters.

Some of her best known decisions include the resolution of the Ralph Nader for President nomination papers, the implementation of electronic voting machines in every county in Pennsylvania, and the finding that limousine drivers are independent contractors.

After leaving the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Justice Sandra Schultz Newman focused on appellate practice, arbitration and mediation. Since then, she has established Newman ADR – an alternative dispute resolution company.


Practice Areas

Family Law

Family law cases may be some of the most emotionally charged cases an attorney may handle.

Worker's Compensation

A work-related injury impacts the employee and employer. Such an injury could lead to life-long disabilities and lower income for an employee.

Personal Injury

A personal injury case may be a high-stakes affair, with millions of dollars riding on it.


The zoning process has many moving parts, any one of which can entangle a client.

Medical Malpractice

Beyond the impact on the plaintiff’s life, medical malpractice suits can be complicated and unsympathetic.

Environmental Law
