Extremely satisfied client
Mr. Newman was an excellent help to my case. I had a possesion of marijuana case and was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case. I will recommend him in the future to anyone I know that has a need for a criminal justice attorney, and should I ever need his services again I will gladly contact him. He is a very straight forward and no nonsense individual and it was a pleasure being assisted by him. - Philip
