I thought I was screwed when I fled the scene of a car accident after driving drunk. The cops came to my house looking for me, and I ended up getting charged with DUI and Hit and Run. I had never used a lawyer before, but knew this was not going to turn out well, if I didn't get a great one. I found this firm from a friend who had a great experience, and so I hired them. The firm partner Keith Hall, assigned my case to Brad Barshis, who used to be a prosecutor and is now a defense lawyer. Brad kicked the prosecutors butt and was able to get all charges dismissed. The moral of the story is don't drink and drive, but if you do, hire these guys!

I got my first DUI. I was a nervous wreck and knew I needed a real lawyer, not a public defender. Mr. Hall helped calm me down and listen to my needs. He kept me informed and let me know exactly what to do and when to do it. He was prompt and leveled with me about what kind of trouble I was in. The staff at his office were very all very helpful. The situation was unpleasant but he was extremely cool-headed. Keith treated me like a friend, I appreciate his demeanor. Keith is the best attorney I have ever worked with and turned a terrible experience into a bearable one. There were no hidden fees and the price he quoted me did not change. I would recommend Keith to anyone in my position!

I would imagine that most people who hire a criminal lawyer are a little hesitant to write a review, but I really appreciated what Keith and his team were able to do for my son, and so here it goes. My son is far from perfect, but I love him as only a mother can. He made a big mistake, the sexual kind. When he was arrested we did not know where to turn, my husband and I had never hired a lawyer, other than for business matters. Our company attorney referred us to Keith's firm, since they specialize in sex cases. I am so glad he did, as Keith was able to keep my son from going to prison. My son got the counseling that he deserved, and probation. He never even went to jail. Our family really appreciates Keith's hard work on our case. In addition to the legal work, Keith is a great listener, and really took the time to get to know my son. All in all, we could not have asked for more, during this difficult time.

This Attorney with his law group totally did nothing that I myself in law library could have not have formulated. Very Needless individual. Mr Hall's last remarks to me were
"Your Momma gots money..." then his facial expression went blank as he took off to his high price Mercedes /AMG that i am sure my family's money went to pay for.
I drive a Honda hybrid to save our country gas and money. Chose wisely. I don't understand why James Newton would stand for this person.

I was in a one car accident in early December – I took a wrong turned, overcorrected and ended up going up an embankment and flipping my truck. The WA State Patrol responded, I was transported to the hospital and subsequently arrested for DUI because, while on a backboard being wheeled into the ER the trooper as me if I would take a blow test and I said "not right now"... I was on a stretcher and could barely breathe! Apparently, if you refuse to blow no matter the circumstances you are arrested AND you automatically lose your license for a year! For the sake of argument, I blew a the blood tests showed .8.
Enter Keith Hall at Jim Newton Law who I hired to represent me a few weeks. We entered a plea of not guilty and he worked with the prosecutor to have the charges “reduced” to reckless driving. Because I did refuse to blow, the DOL is still mandating that I have an ignition interlock device in my car for a year – AND I have to pay for high risk insurance which I couldn’t get through the carrier I had been with for two decades. This is DOL and it's mandatory because I didn't blow while on the stretcher! Bottom line, if you are asked to blow - just do it! Not blowing is the only way your license can be suspended automatically. Had I said yes, the results could have saved me a lot of money!
I was initially wanting to represent myself but was strongly encouraged to hire an attorney and am thankful I did. Keith did a great job representing me. I recommend Jim Newton Law if you're charged with a DIU
