Luke was professional, thorough, and very accessible! He was upfront about all fees, his honest opinion of the case, and all the possible outcomes! He not only went above and beyond the norm, ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED! He immediately saw my case for what it was... and handled it accordingly! I can not begin to express my respect and appreciation for his skills. I will definitely be recommending him to others in the future!
Mr. Newman is clear about his plan for the case and immediately takes action. He is fair with fees and tells you up front what will be expected. He always returned calls and emails with promptness, even after the case is over, he is willing to give guidance if you have questions. I came to him panic stricken and he listened to my case and took action right away. I was always in the loop, as he contacted me with updates, and he gave clear and honest guidance on situations when they arose. I felt completely at ease having him represent me and am thankful for his help in getting my charges dropped and case closed.
Mr. Newman was truly a blessing when i need one. He handled my case with great Knowledge and kept me the loop from beginning to end. If you are looking for not only the best lawyer in town but a great guy you don't have to look any further.
I wanted to take a minute to comment about Mr. Newman and how helpful he was for me during a very difficult time. Back in late January my son who is a college student in Tallahassee was arrested for a couple Felony offenses. Not being from Tallahassee I was at a disadvantage not knowing anyone there who I could get help from. After attempting to use the Public Defender in my son's case I could see that the PD's office was inadequate to say the least.
I contacted Luke Newman and after he explained his process and plan I hired him to defend my 19 yr. old son. Mr. Newman went to work immediately on his case. From May to September the legal process worked it's way out. In the end Mr. Newman was able to have one of the most serious charges dropped altogether. The other charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. During this ordeal I had numerous conversations over the phone as well as emails and text messages from him. I can truly say that he was always prompt in contacting me and even after hours he would either call me or text me about my concerns depending on the situation. In the end I was very pleased and felt blessed to have him fighting for my Son. I would recommend him most definitely. Thank You Luke for your help.
Luke Newman was never available to speak with me ONCE I paid my money for my case. Every time I called him he would let his secretary answer and give me the run around about my case. Then he would file motions that I was unaware of. The only time he responded to emails was when he wanted money.
Luke has been a great lawyer for me! The state attorney was set on sending me to jail but after several plea offers Luke was able to settle my charges with probation. I then hired a different lawyer to handle my early termination of probation, what a nightmare! I immediately went back to Luke and he saved me out of the mess I was in. Luke is very professional as he always answered phone calls or responded immediately. He will also always keep you informed of what is going on with your case. I would recommend Luke Newman.
“My family hired Luke to represent my son in a serious criminal case. The Office of the State attorney initially wanted to send my son to prison. Luke investigated the case and eventually worked out a probation agreement. This was a massive relief to my family and me as we were bracing ourselves for prison. After the agreement was entered, a couple issues arose during my son’s probationary term. Luke effectively handled those issues quickly and discretely. Luke then coordinated the early termination of my son’s probation at the appropriate time. Many months after that, Luke got involved with a professional program that was giving my son a hard time about enrolling. Luke communicated extensively with the program officials, he provided documentation and even a letter of support which led to my son’s eventual acceptance. Luke has never asked for a nickel following the payment of the initial fee on the case. Even after the criminal case was closed, Luke has responded to our repeated requests for assistance in a timely and professional manner with positive results.”
Luke is highly recommended in my opinion. I went to his office in tears. Niot only did he reassure me, he also listened to my long-winded story. He kept in touch w/ me via e-mail, was very knowledgeable, got back to me in a very reasonable amnt. of time & even gave me a huge price break. If anyone is in trouble...you need to call Luke Newman!!
Luke represented me in several cases that I had neglected to take care of in my youth, that had been haunting me for years. I was finally able to pay for a lawyer to take care of this for me and Luke more than surpassed my expectations. He was more than fair with the fees he charged, and stayed in touch with me throughout the VERY quick process. It is because of Luke that I now have a clean slate to start from and am able to breathe easier while being a wife and mother to my two children. Thank goodness for trustworthy and reliable lawyers out there like Luke!
