If you are looking for a hard working, very honest, transparent lawyer who will explain the process to you, work effective with the other party, or go to battle for you, then Stephanie is a great fit for you. Stephanie came highly recommended from a large Law firm to me based on my particular situation where the opposing party was persuading the children for her own best interest. Stephanie ensured equality in this challenging matter and also counseled me in being the better person during a very emotional and challenging divorce. Thank you Stephanie!

Stephanie was the best lawyer I could have asked for. She was very understanding with the needs of my complicated case and made it as smooth as possible considering the circumstances.
Faced with non-communication with not only the other party but also with the other party's lawyer; Stephanie and the other lawyers in the firm consistently showed the utmost professionalism and dedication to settle my divorce. They went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with the conditions of the divorce.
Even after the divorce was final Stephanie Newton's firm continued to follow up and assured that all loose ends were addressed.
I cannot thank Stephanie enough for her hard work and dedication on my behalf. I highly recommend not only her but also the other attorneys working with her.

I was referred to Stephanie by a friend that worked with Stephanie is a child custody case. While my case was a divorce, I liked the feedback I received from my friend and I set up a consultation. Without a doubt, that was a pivotal and positive decision on my part.
After months of working with a mediator to attempt to agree on child support, property, spousal support, etc., it was clear there were going to be some sticky financial issues that looked like they would be decided by the courts. I heard it over and over from many sources that, nobody will like the result of what the judge will decide. I'm glad I considered this.
I interviewed a few firms before I contacted the Newton Plont firm. After the initial consultation, I knew the same day that I wanted Stephanie in my corner. Stephanie took careful time to understand my situation. Stephanie is personable and empathetic, as well as highly professional and very much to the point. Stephanie asked questions to make sure she understood specific details that were factors in my case that I didn't consider. This to me was key.
After a few weeks of meetings and e-mails, of considering (exhausting) all the possible and potential options, Stephanie helped me come up with creative options to propose. Initially, I was doubtful the options would be considered however, Stephanie's view of the offers combined with her insight, expertise, and experience, I was convinced the offer would be accepted. I was right. The offer was accepted and the judgement of divorce was signed the same day.
If you need to hire an attorney or if you're even thinking about it, contact Stephanie or the Newton Plont firm. Save yourself time and start with the best.
To whomever is reading this, I look forward to reading your words of praise of Stephanie in the future!
