Testimonials

In late 2013, I came to the realization that I needed to end my unhealthy marriage of 27 years. I asked a friend to recommend a strong family law attorney and was referred to Phil Newman of Puryear, Newman + Morton, PLLC.

I made my first phone call to Phil in a very chaotic frame of mind.  Phil was able to give me advice on how to proceed until I could meet with him personally. The first time I met Phil he listened to my story, asked thoughtful questions and, was able to answer many of my immediate questions. I left our very first meeting feeling informed, and with a legal and financial plan.

I found Phil and his office to be very professional, efficient and caring. Going through any legal process is not pleasant, but I felt secure and taken care of by the entire PN+M Law staff. There were times during the divorce process, particularly at mediation, when I was given difficult decisions to make. Phil and his staff helped me make those decisions.

Phil may not tell you what you want to hear, but he will tell you exactly what you need to know to be informed during the divorce process. I am so grateful to have had Phil Newman and his team on my side.
