Posted by Kim
Every person's legal situation is different but without a doubt, hiring Luke Newman was the best decision our family made. I've personally worked in the legal field for over 15 years and am very familiar with the behind the scenes operation of a law office and the effort (or often times, the lack thereof) most attorney's put into legal representation. Luke was not just another attorney trying to collect the next retainer deposit, he actually cares about his client's (and their family) and expressed sincere compassion to our situation. Luke is a very thorough and realistic appellate attorney. He was very straightforward and his knowledge of the law far surpassed any of the attorneys we have worked with in the past. His proficiency and continual search for applicable case law was exceptional. He researched every angle of the case and found errors made by the trial attorney and trial court that provided an outcome we never thought would be possible. He was always well prepared for each hearing and kept the lines of communication constantly flowing. More times than not, a client is forced to communicate with the attorney's legal assistant and this simply was not the case with Luke. He always knew the specific facts of the case at hand each time we spoke. Luke always made sure we knew what to expect and was always available to personally answer questions. He proved to be successful where prior attorneys were not and it didn't stop there. He went the extra mile to prepare our family for the process following the conclusion of his appellate work. For anyone who is ever in the unfortunate position of needing to hire a criminal appellate attorney, Luke Newman would be an asset to your case and someone you would want in your corner fighting on your behalf. Our family will forever be grateful for Mr. Newman and the results he achieved.

Luke helped me to get a ridiculous injunction dismissed in July 2015. His fees are reasonable, he is very competent, and he made me feel that I was taken care of. I would recommend him to anyone.

In our first meeting, Luke explained clearly the process we would be going through together to resolve my case. Everything went exactly as he had predicted, one step following the next. I was never caught by surprise or blindsided a single time. He did a tremendous amount of research and work on my behalf in a thoroughly professional manner, and my case was ultimately resolved to my complete satisfaction. I can recommend him wholeheartedly.

Luke represented me in a traffic case. I contacted other local attorneys beforehand and no one had the confidence that he expressed about winning my case. The citation was dismissed with only court cost and traffic school. Don't call a huge firm where you will have no idea who is representing you. Call Luke he is very professional always answers questions and returns your calls promptly.

Luke was professional, thorough, and very accessible! He was upfront about all fees, his honest opinion of the case, and all the possible outcomes! He not only went above and beyond the norm, ALL CHARGES WERE DISMISSED! He immediately saw my case for what it was... and handled it accordingly! I can not begin to express my respect and appreciation for his skills. I will definitely be recommending him to others in the future!

Mr. Newman is clear about his plan for the case and immediately takes action. He is fair with fees and tells you up front what will be expected. He always returned calls and emails with promptness, even after the case is over, he is willing to give guidance if you have questions. I came to him panic stricken and he listened to my case and took action right away. I was always in the loop, as he contacted me with updates, and he gave clear and honest guidance on situations when they arose. I felt completely at ease having him represent me and am thankful for his help in getting my charges dropped and case closed.

I wanted to take a minute to comment about Mr. Newman and how helpful he was for me during a very difficult time. Back in late January my son who is a college student in Tallahassee was arrested for a couple Felony offenses. Not being from Tallahassee I was at a disadvantage not knowing anyone there who I could get help from. After attempting to use the Public Defender in my son's case I could see that the PD's office was inadequate to say the least.
I contacted Luke Newman and after he explained his process and plan I hired him to defend my 19 yr. old son. Mr. Newman went to work immediately on his case. From May to September the legal process worked it's way out. In the end Mr. Newman was able to have one of the most serious charges dropped altogether. The other charge was reduced to a misdemeanor. During this ordeal I had numerous conversations over the phone as well as emails and text messages from him. I can truly say that he was always prompt in contacting me and even after hours he would either call me or text me about my concerns depending on the situation. In the end I was very pleased and felt blessed to have him fighting for my Son. I would recommend him most definitely. Thank You Luke for your help.

Luke Newman was never available to speak with me ONCE I paid my money for my case. Every time I called him he would let his secretary answer and give me the run around about my case. Then he would file motions that I was unaware of. The only time he responded to emails was when he wanted money.

Luke has been a great lawyer for me! The state attorney was set on sending me to jail but after several plea offers Luke was able to settle my charges with probation. I then hired a different lawyer to handle my early termination of probation, what a nightmare! I immediately went back to Luke and he saved me out of the mess I was in. Luke is very professional as he always answered phone calls or responded immediately. He will also always keep you informed of what is going on with your case. I would recommend Luke Newman.
