I have worked with multiple attorneys in my professional career. I was referred to Stephanie from a close, highly respected local attorney and friend concerning an ongoing situation with my ex-wife. Upon meeting Stephanie I was immediately impressed with how she carried herself and quickly retained her to represent me. The dispute was in regards to the possession and ownership rights of the marital home. Our divorce was finalized three years prior to this event. After numerous negotiation attempts, followed by unfounded and unnecessary slanderous statements and mudslinging from the opposing party, both Stephanie and I decided that we had to go to Court. At our hearing, Stephanie was better prepared, poised and succinctly expressed the facts compared to the opposing party’s representation who appeared flustered and foolish even though the ex-wife’s attorney had been affiliated with the dispute for a year longer. A follow-up hearing was scheduled, but before either Stephanie or I returned to our respective offices, the ex-wife’s attorney had submitted an offer. Throughout this experience, I found Stephanie to be personable, understanding, composed, and thorough. Her communication skills and attention to detail give an advantage to her clients. Stephanie is an excellent attorney and I will continue to recommend Newton Law to family and friends.

I have been completely satisfied with the professionalism Stephanie Newton has shown working through my divorce. Stephanie is a no nonsense attorney that tells you straight forward what your options are from a legal standpoint and advise you how best to proceed. Meanwhile, always leaving the final decision with you.
She always made me feel as if my case was the most important, even though she is a busy Grand Rapids lawyer she always communicated with me like I was the only one. She was very knowledgeable on the process and always prepared for meetings and court appearances.
Stephanie was able to explain the process and requirements at each stage in the process very well, leaving me to fully understand the expectations and what needed to be done on my part.
I highly recommend Stephanie Newtow to anyone in need of legal representation in a divorce or family law matter.

Stephanie was excellent to work with while going through my divorce earlier this year. Stephanie was referred to me through a coworker who was very pleased with her services when she went through her divorce last year. Stephanie was very thorough and kept me informed step-by-step through the process and was always quick to respond back to my questions in detail.

Stephanie was great to work with. She was very prompt and informative. Any time I had a question she responded even if it was off-hours or on the weekend. I worked with her regarding a child support/custody case and I would recommend her to anyone with this kind of case. .

Ms. Newton was tremendously helpful. She was not only proficient at what she does, but she was also supportive during the process. She was informative and gave honest advice as to what the outcome could be based on the decisions I made. I would absolutely use her services for future legal matters.

Stephanie helped me with a Prenuptial agreement with my now wife. Although I reviewed the initial draft and did not see major issues, Stephanie found some key points to correct and made quality recommendations on specific language that would protect both me and my wife. Stephanie helped keep the process moving in a respectful way while keeping focus on the end goal of creating a document that, although we plan to never need it, can be useful.
Stephanie's communication along the way was effective and efficient and she was always mindful of deadlines that were set. Her quick response to both me and the other attorney involved was greatly appreciated.

Stephanie consistently remained calm and professional and returned my calls promptly. She helped ease my anxiety and took my lead in her approach to my case, never pushing me into a more aggressive stance than I was comfortable with. She gave advice when she felt comfortable and consulted an experienced associate when she felt my question went beyond the scope of the case she had agreed to take. She genuinely wanted to help me in any way she could.

I contacted Attorney Stephanie Newton regarding a post Judgment child support motion filed against me by my ex-husband. I was very nervous about the potential outcome of the motion. I was put at ease by Ms. Newton's quick response to my call, thorough review of my case, and professional opinion regarding how we would move forward. Ms. Newton was upfront about her costs and services, and was always responsive to my questions within a short period of time. Because of her expertise, we were able to avoid going to court, and the motion that had been filed was dismissed. I would contact Ms. Newton first thing if I ever had another legal issue at hand, and I have recommended her to others since.

An Attorney friend of mine recommended Stephanie Newton to represent me in a child custody case that I wanted to file. Stephanie was very thorough and diligent with fighting for my rights as a father. What really stood out to me was after our 1st court appearance. The judge ruling was not favorable and I was ready to give up, Stephanie would not allow me to lose hope. Stephanie developed a great game plan that eventually got us the win. Although Stephanie only has 5 years experience she is very sharp and tenacious! I will continue to use her services if needed and highly recommend her to anybody that needs a Family Law Lawyer!!!!

Stephanie was great in handling my very complex divorce. She guided me through the most difficult time of my life and was willing to answer my calls whenever I had a question; in fact, she is the only lawyer that I have worked with who actually gave me her cell phone number. She was very knowledgeable and kept me informed along the way. I have since referred friends and family members to her and will continue to do so in the future.

I loved how quickly she responded to my e-mails for concerns I had. She was thorough and explained things so I (the average) could understand the lingo and options. I will definitely use her services in the future if I ever need her! She is also well priced and was quick to refund my unused portion of the retainer fee.

We have worked with Stephanie Newton several times and have found her to be professional and extremely competent. Whether it is preparing legal motions, or in the courtroom, her work is impeccable. Stephanie looks at the big picture, she works toward a civil resolution of issues whenever possible. She always works in the best interest of her clients, listens intently and communicates clearly. We have found her to be friendly, truthful, straight forward, and knowledgeable. We highly recommend Ms. Newton.

Stephanie handled my recent divorce. Generally I work with lawyers as a part of my occupation rather than my personal life. Stephanie was great to work with. She explained the process to me very clearly and walked me through each step. I was extremely impressed with her attention to detail in the documentation and her personal presence in court. She is very well versed in Michigan divorce law and I felt quite confident that she was making sure that my interest was well protected and represented in the final judgment. Stephanie understood my financial situation given the circumstances and did everything in her power to avoid unnecessary costs. She was always quick to respond to my questions and suggestions for settlement.
Divorce is not pleasant, but Stephanie did everything she could to help me to get through the process while protecting my rights. I am extremely pleased with her work on my behalf. I would happily recommend her to anyone .
