    • I recommend Robert Newman.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I hired Robert not only to help my with a civil dispute I had 3 years ago, which, by the way, we won, but also as my attorney for an increase with my child support. Robert handled everything in such a professional manner. He sat with me and went over the court process with me. My ex-husband decided he was no longer pay support for my children, ages 9 and 11. He was saving for a house! My friend recommended Robert to me. From the time I met him, I felt comfortable. We went to court and my husband not only had to resume paying support, the court increased it! Thanks to Robert for doing such an excellent job.

  2. Lack of Knowledge and experience.

    • I do not recommend Robert Newman.
    • I hired Robert more than 3 years ago.
    • Robert handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    After selecting him as my attorney to represent me, it became apparent he was not as experienced claimed.
    Favorable points brought up at my consultation were never acted upon, or just plain forgotten. It didn't appear he had my best interests at heart once I signed the retainer agreement. The inexperience showed when we went to court. I have grave reservations regarding his competence and knowledge of the law.

  3. Compassionate

    Going through my divorce has been very emotional for both me and my children. Robert's compassion throughout this whole process is so comforting. His new office in Santa Ana's Artist District is not only peaceful, the office itself is comfortable and quaint. I have referred several friends of mine to his office. If you need the peace of mind and true experience when your hiring an attorney, call Robert Newman.
