Milwaukee Attorney Noah Domnitz Named Outstanding Young Trial Lawyer
December 12, 2019 (Milwaukee) The Wisconsin Association for Justice (WAJ) is proud to name Noah D. Domnitz of Milwaukee as the Outstanding Young Trial Lawyer of 2019. Domnitz received the award and was honored in front of his friends and colleagues at WAJ's annual President's Dinner on December 6 in Milwaukee.
Noah is a Shareholder at Domnitz & Domnitz, S.C. in Milwaukee. His practice is dedicated to helping injured individuals and representing families in wrongful death cases. He relishes the daily fight for justice on behalf of his clients.
Noah has tried cases to verdict in numerous counties around Wisconsin. Most recently, in 2019, he obtained a substantial verdict in Racine County on behalf of an 80-year old military veteran who suffered an injury in car crash.
The right to a civil jury trial, embedded in the U.S. (7th Amendment) and Wisconsin (Article I, § 5) constitutions, is one of our oldest consumer safety nets. The frequency of jury trials, however, has long been in decline, making Noah's skill and record all the more impressive. For example, in 2018, there were only 201 civil jury trials in the state of Wisconsin (for tort cases).
In 2019, Noah was involved in several significant cases, however, his most rewarding accomplishment involved working with his partner and mentor, Ric Domnitz, on behalf of two former Michigan State University gymnasts who were sexually assaulted by Larry Nassar. He credits his clients, along with all the sister survivors, for being unyielding inspirations.
Noah's dedication to the cause of wrongly injured people is not limited to the courtroom. Noah currently serves on WAJ's Board of Directors and has been a member of the organization for his entire legal career. Nationally, he serves on the national Board of Governors for the an Association for Justice (AAJ) and AAJ's Public Affairs Committee. Noah has authored multiple articles for WAJ's magazine, The Verdict, has been a presenter at multiple WAJ CLE seminars, and authored op-eds and other commentary on legal and political issues.
Noah is a proud graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the University of Miami School of Law. He lives in the Milwaukee area with his wife, Rebecca, herself an accomplished trial lawyer, and their two sons, Hersh and Levi.
