There are times in your life when you need an attorney for mundane purposes. Be it drafting a will, contract writing, or even fixing a parking ticket. And don't get me wrong, these are all very important elements and practices within the legal profession. However, to utilize Talmage for such things would be a waste of his phenomenal talents.
I have had the misfortune of requiring Talmage's services on more than one occasion, but I have had the incredible fortune of having Talmage on my side. Never in my life have I encountered a person so brilliant and so insatiably attracted to his chosen field.
Talmage is not your average attorney. And by saying that, what I mean is that he eschews every standard I can think of in the legal profession. He won't lie to you about your chances. He won't sugar coat bad news. He won't follow a standard path. And he will most certainly do things his own way (much to the chagrin of the other attorneys.)
Talmage is, in his essence, an outside the box thinker. His brilliance in law has very little to do with the confines of the law. I don't even know if that makes sense but if I were to make a comparison, imagine you are trapped in a mine shaft. There is no escape and it looks like you are going to die. If you had Talmage with you, he would somehow pull a magical escape tunnel out of his pocket. That is how surprisingly innovative he is in the legal profession. He sees things no one else does, and he approaches legal puzzles with a passion.
He is not a get out of jail free card...but he is the closest thing to it.
Obviously I cannot say enough good things.
One thing I struggled with initially was taking his advice...but only at first. When I first started working with him, he would tell me to do things that I didn't understand, or that my plan was "the single worst idea he could think of." Of course, I pushed back...I mean, it's my life, I should have some say. But I quickly learned that not only does he know what he's doing, he's doing it in such a way that no one else will expect it. Like I said, brilliant. Once I stopped thinking I knew how to handle things, and just let him have control, the process became almost entertaining.
Please trust me on this...Talmage is the single best Attorney in town for criminal matters. And if you ever need a funny, but terrifying letter written on your behalf...he's great at that too.
Call him...do it now...seriously

Talmage Newton has helped my construction firm collect debts from past clients over the years.
Talmage also defended my firm against false construction malpractice claims.
Talmage does a great job building a case based on facts, and he makes it obvious that you are his priority. He uses the perfect combination of aggressiveness and common sense in all of his cases - this is clear to all sides.

Talmage is an experienced attorney with a proven track record. I regularly seek his advice on labor and employment matters and have referred clients to him, knowing that he does a tremendous job. I endorse this lawyer.
