    What our clients are saying


    Managed to get rid of a very hard ticket thanks to them. They were always very honest and transparent and told me it would be very hard to get rid of the ticket because of the county it was on and because it was 30 miles over the speed limit. Still decided to try my luck and they managed to get it dismissed! They followed up and helped me make sure I submitted all additional documents on time and at the end of the day helped me save about $300 and keep a clean record. If you’re looking for good traffic lawyers this is the place to go!

    Everett Newton saved my life when i was facing two separate 7 year old charges, one for felony probation violation and another for a DWI failure to appear. I had left the country and straightened out my life and needed to resolve these issues for business travel but had little hope. Each of these could could have easily landed me in jail for sometime or at least have tied me to some stringent probation that would have inhibited my travel needs. From the get go Everett was straight forward and genuine about possible outcomes but never over promising as most hard selling attorneys had been. In both cases he came into action rapidly and assured my freedom and quick disposal of both cases. To top it all off his office worked out a payment plan and his prices were spot on and not nearly as inflated as others. I cannot thank him and his office enough and can get on with my business and family with these cases resolved in full.


    I contacted Mr. Newton regarding a felony violation of probation warrant and the potential consequences for myself were dire. To be clear, my case gave Mr. Newton very little to work with and knowing this I was very anxious over the issue. Mr Everett went above and beyond what I have come to expect from legal representation. He worked very hard to achieve a great outcome for me. He is experienced, ethical, very smart and took a genuine interest in me personally. Too be clear, if you are facing a serious legal issue, nothing is more vital than a hard working, intelligent and adroit attorney. I have been represented by good counsel at times, however none were as capable as Mr. Newton. Frankly, he was a Godsend.
