I’ve been a client of Phil Newman since 2003; he calls me a repeat offender because I’ve usd him and his office several times over the past 14 years.

When I experienced divorce for the first time, I didn’t know who to turn to.  I was intimidateed by attorneys and was devastated by the situation.  I happened to find Phil in the Yellow Pages (of all places) and, after our first meeting, immediately knew I could trust him to do a good job.  He was confident, determined, direct and fiercely protective of my rights, and made sure that my son and I were taken care of in the end.  At times, when I let my emotions take over, Phil even brought me back to reality and kept us on track.  Thanks to Phil, a sad and scary situation was made much easier.  I knew nothing about the process, but Phil left no stone unturned and walked me through the entire ordeal with compassion.

Three years later, I was in a terrible automobile accident and, knowing my medical bills were going to be high, I immediately turned to Phil for his help.  Once again, he worked tirelessly for several months to insure I was taken care of in the end.  Thanks to Phil, we were able to settle the case in mediation and avoided a court trial.

Several years later, I called Phil again asking for help with a real estate matter.  His partner, Chas Morton, represented my second husband and me in a bizarre case and, at the last moment, was able to settle the case out of court.  Chas knows real estate and has great relationships with his colleagues in the industry.  His direct, no-nonsense approach was a huge asset to us in the final outcome of the case.

Unfortunately, I faced a second divorce recently and, once again, turned to Phil for his assistance.  He knew exactly what was needed and didn’t back down from helping me through every step of the process.

I can’t say enough about this firm.  I am treated like family and have the utmost confdence in all of hte attorneys and staff there.  I refer them at every opportunity I get, and am grateful to have stumbled upon thier office years ago.  You won’t find a more confident, down-to-earth, direct and savvy group of attorneys.  They are well-respected and work with great integrity and experience.
