Professional but Friendly
Obviously knows the law. Mr. Newport is highly approachable, easy to talk to, and unintimidating. He will tell you what is, not what you wish to be.

star only review
Animal shelter was refusing to return my dog and adopted him out. He was returned to shelter because he was having tremors so shelter called they were going to euthanize my dog because of tremors. I did get my dog back and his tremors are due to extreme stress so shelter caused the stress then wanted to kill my dog.. He was very helpful and informative even though the shelter did own the dog legally since 3 days had passed i did have options I could pursue that may help He is very kind to have responded and will keep him in mind if I'm in need of a lawyer in future I appreciate (more than he'll ever know) him taking his time to respond

I spent a few days trying to get a legal question answered. I would leave a message with other law firms and was told the lawyer would call me back within a day or two but that never happened. I was referred to Jordan Newport and called the same day and spoke with him. He listened, asked questions and provided a written response to my question within an hour or so. I did not expect that and would have been happy with an answer the following week. He exceeded my expectations for sure and I am grateful. Thank you!
