Testimonials

“Phil Newman demonstrated an excellent knowledge of state and local laws and how they could best protect myself and my children.  He was a trusted advisor, not only with legal approach and supporting strategy, but general divorce related issues as well.  His legal support team was equally capable.  Phil’s strong relationships and knowledge of Nashville’s judges and lawyers were also an asset to my case.  Finally, he approached my case in a highly ethical manner, for example avoiding unnecessary legal conflict and related expenses when possible.  Combined, I felt confident with Phil backing my interests and those of my children in court.  The outcome of my case proved this confidence was well founded.”
