Great Attorney
We hired Mr. Newby following a catastrophic auto accident last year. We found Mr. Newby to be professional, personable, very smart and a very reliable attorney. Our case was complicated and he was very good at helping us understand the legal jargan. Mr. Newby was always accessible when we had questions, checked on us regularly to see how my husband was progressing and kept us very well informed about our case. We highly recommend Mr. Newby, his Paralegal, Lisa, and the whole team at Tronfeld, West and Durrett.

Assessment of attributes of Mr. John Newby
Mr. Newby was experienced, conscientious, and well-prepared for my case. He, in the courtroom,exhibited an excellent review of my case, cited other cases in the same domain, and was extremely well-versed on the topic. He had control, but at the same time, was compassionate and sincere. I would very, very definitely refer anyone who needs a lawyer to Mr. Newby.

I am very fortunate/blessed to have met Mr.Newby. I was involved in a rear end collision in which I wasn't at fault. After meeting with Mr.Newby he insured that he would take care of everything. He did. He delivered exactly what he promised and then some. He kept me informed, educated and stress free throughout my whole case. I highly recommend him!

This was my first time utilizing a personal injury attorney. I never met Mr Newby, only spoke with him on the phone on several occasions. Would like to have had the opportunity to talk with him face to face. Would like to have had the attorney initiate more calls to client to talk about the progress in the case. Overall, I was pleased with the service, would recommend law firm.
