A native of New York, Alan graduated with honors in finance from Syracuse University and went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from the University of Miami School of Law in 1975, He is a member of the North Dade Bar Association, Florida Bar and the Florida Bar Trial Lawyers Section. Alan is recognized among the best Miami personal injury lawyers in the South Florida Legal Guide.
In a highly publicized auto negligence case, Neufeld was co-counsel with his partners David Kleinberg and Robert Pinkiert in Edwin Mejia and Nelly Mejia vs. Manheim Auctions Government Services. In a horrific car accident, Edwin Mejia was left severely brain damaged requiring round-the-clock care. In a highly contested case, the lawyers won the largest verdict in state history for an automobile accident case, resulting in a $23.5 million damage award.
In Riles v. Bonaventure Golf Course, et al, the jury agreed with Alan after a two-week trial that resulted in the highest jury verdict ever recorded in the U.S. against a country club. When a golfer’s errant shot veered off course, a golf ball hit Mr, Riles in the eye while he was working as a general contractor on a nearby house, and he was blinded. The defense called the accident an unforeseeable incident, but Neufeld persisted. He enlisted a golf course architect/designer as his expert witness who determined that the course had a defective design. Consequently, the jury rendered a verdict against the country club for over $2.9 million, later upheld by the 4th District Court of Appeals, resulting in the plaintiff collecting over $3.3 million.
A dedicated family man and active member of his community, Alan is on the Board of Governors for the North Dade Bar Association and is currently the president of the Citizens Advisory Committee for the Metro 6 Intracoastal Police Department, He is also a member of North Miami Beach Optimist Club for which he volunteers his time organizing the annual Special Olympics.

I would certainly recommend
I would not hesitate to recommend Mr Neufeld or to go to him again should the need arise. He was one of two attorneys I consulted and found him to be far more knowledgeable, straightforward and concerned for my welfare that the other lawyer I spoke with.
I would recommend
It was a great deal to have them on my case, I was well informed at all times of the process and they responded to all my questions in a fast and honest way. I have a busy schedule that includes a special needs child and Jason was always sensible through all my situation. Thanks so much for all you did.
I would certainly recommend
I endorse this lawyer without hesitation. I have known Robert for as long as I can remember. He is a passionate, skilled, and zealous advocate for his clients.
Great Personal Injury Attorney
When I was looking for an attorney who would represent my husband in a medical malpractice case, David Kleinberg was the only attorney who wasn’t looking for a quick and easy case to settle out of court.
