William J. Newstad, Esq.
(718) 668-6800


Since William started practicing law in 1996, his intention has been to connect with clients and fulfill their needs. William considers himself an average person fortunate to have the opportunity to master a profession that allows him to serve his community. He knows that most average folks don’t have regular contact with attorneys or the court system, nor do they have an in-depth understanding of the law. So, he takes his role as an educator, informing his clients of all pertinent aspects of the law that may affect their personal and business objectives, very seriously. Because only a fully informed client can make the best decision or commit to a necessary course of action. William hosts free monthly estate planning and elder law workshops providing extensive and valuable information on these areas of the law.
