Travis Newton is a great lawyer
Travis Newton represented me on a serious traffic charge in 2012. I was impressed from the first meeting all the way through until the end. Mr. Newton's knowledge and confidence eased my fears throughout. I consulted with several attorneys before choosing Mr. Newton. If I had been convicted I would have lost my job. I would hire Mr. Newton again without hesitation.

BEST IN TOWN!
I contacted Travis, because acquaintances of mine highly recommended him. In doing so, I believe I received the best criminal defense around. During the process of the DUI charge, he knew loop holes and was able to help me obtain a driver's license in waiting on the ruling. He ruthlessly defended me, and did all he could to help the benefit of my outcome. He was very professional, made sure he contacted me in plenty of time before any court dates. And was always readily available if I ever had any questions or concerns. I highly reccomend Travis to anyone if you want the best chance of having a favorable outcome in your case!!!
