    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. Link to review

    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. Link to review

    I've been going here for the past 5 years for all my traffic tickets and my one other incident with the law... Of all my 10+ speeding tickets they've handled for me none of them are on my record. I had some of them dismissed but the others I was just on probation for a couple of months or so. As for my other incident they handled for me.... Texas changed a law just recently that I "broke" a while back. So most likely I'll go and get it expunged or something and that's another review for later.  Also, Everett Newton has his own radio show where he gives "legal advice" on Live 105.3 and he does appearances for the Russ Martin Show every once and a while.

    This is an amazing firm from beginning to end. They make you feel like they  are emotionally available to your situation the moment that you enter the door. Maria is just as involved as the attorneys in our case. I have used them for traffic tickets, Public intoxication, felony. They always provide a favorable outcome. They are truly a Godsend.

    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!

    I ran into some legal issues when a few tickets from my past became warrants. I had completely forgotten about the other tickets! But thanks to Delsy and the team, they were able to track down all of my warrants and get them lifted. The process was quick and easy with complete step by step details on what actions they were taking.
