“Attorney Newman was hired to represent my son who was facing felony changes punishable by up to 40 years in prison on a crime he did not commit. He was a 19 year old college student athlete. John was the utmost professional and explained every step of the process along the way. He successfully formulated a methodical plan and approach to defend my son. There were times in this long process where we felt hopeless and John was always there to reassure us and was determined to show the facts of the case and prove my son’s innocence. The future of my sons life was in attorney Newman’s hands. Through his diligent work all charges were successfully dropped and I will forever be indebted to him. His knowledge experience and calming demeanor were without question the difference in the case. I highly recommend his services for anyone facing criminal defense.”
