  • Keith Robert Hall

    I have worked with James Newton for over three years, and he has consistently shown a strong commitment to resolving the legal problems that his clients have faced. James is especially strong in the area of sex crimes defense, and other serious felony defense. These are cases where the accused faces the potential for lifetime imprisonment, as well as having to register as sex offenders. When these consequences are at issue, it is important to have a strong advocate in your corner, and James is just that.
