CALL right now before your ex does.
Best lawyer in Benton County by far. She's courteous, honest, professional and hardworking. She handled my case and made sure all was fair for my kids. Can't recommend enough.

Thorough and Efficient
Sue Ann was professional, courteous and effective throughout the process. She did an excellent job explaining my options, and always responded quickly to me and the opposing counsel. I got the best result possible, and it only took six weeks. I highly recommend Sue Ann and would definitely retain her again if necessary.

Concise and effective
Sue Ann did an excellent job helping me rework a botched divorce order. She was professional and knowledgeable and gave excellent advice on the best route to take. She was very professional and personable with the judge and our outcome was just what I was hoping for. Highly recommend.

Exceptional Attorney
Sue Ann V. Newman handled my divorce. She gave excellent counsel throughout, always responded quickly to phone calls and emails, and court documents were prepared accurately and completely, and delivered when promised. When mediation became necessary, her guidance through that process was assuring and effective as well. She also continued to provide counsel after my divorce was final when some financial challenges emerged in the process of refinancing my home. She and her staff were always very kind and professional, and I will never forget how they helped me in a most difficult time in my life. I will always highly recommend Sue Ann V. Newman to anyone needing a skilled, compassionate and exceptional attorney.

Sue Ann is an excellent lawyer and very personable.
I went to Sue Ann Newman for my divorce and she made it very simple for me and pain free. I will definitely go back to Sue Ann in the future hopefully not for another divorce...

Best family law attorney
Sue Ann is a fantastic person and the absolute best lawyer. I had a very hard and complicated divorce and she made everything so much easier. We had to go to court more than once over child custody and each time she was outstanding. In the court room, she was professional yet tenacious and it was evident by the great outcome. She knows the law very well and lets you know upfront of worst/best case scenario so that your expectations are grounded. She is smart, clever and a very good attorney. If your looking for a lawyer who's going to fight for you and do all she can to ensure you get the most just and fair outcome, then Sue Ann is the right attorney for you.

Great lawyer
I had never hired a lawyer before but when me and my husband decided to get divorced I went to Google and Mrs Newman came up and had great reviews so I decided to call and set up a free consultation. I immediately felt comfortable in her office, she was very personal and professional at the same time. I hired her and never regretted it she's very quick to respond to emails or calls and the whole process of my divorce went by very smoothly. Her assistant Brandy was also very easy to work with. I will definitely use Sue Ann again for any legal needs I might need.

Divorce
Sue was great. She explained the process perfect, she was very up front but gentle during the stressful time of divorce. Her connections made the whole divorce quick and relatively painless. It was one of my better decisions I've made.

Best Decision
I talked to several attorneys about my case before I hired Sue Ann. Then I talked to her. I walked out of her office feeling positive about my case. She delivered. Custody, divorce...Good luck finding an attorney that could do it with as much respect, and intent as Sue Ann. I am a father, now a single father of an amazing little girl. Sue Ann took the time to listen, understand, and worked flawlessly. She can be intense at times, but it is due to her knowledge, and intent for YOUR outcome. I spent little time in the court room, my divorce and custody issue was worked out and finalized in less than 2 months. Sue Ann and her assistant Brandy are a fantastic team. They had an answer for every question, always had my case on hand. They could not have been more reassuring that my case was being handled, and that they were there for me. Please do not look for another lawyer, do yourself a favor and call her office.

Sue Ann Newman rating
I appreciated Sue Ann's patience with me in the handling of my custody situation. She is very knowledgable in this area and gave me multiple options to pursue once she had an understanding of the situation. I really liked how her options ranged from least aggressive to most aggressive but her overall intentions were to do what was best for me and what I thought was best for my family. I did not get a sense that she was just trying to make as much money as she could. I gained a strong level of trust with her through consultations and felt confident having her at the mediation table with me. She was responsive and available to my emails and phone calls and prompt when it came to drafting paperwork or making modifications to existing paperwork. My situation was handled timely and she was incredibly flexible with me on what I could do financially.
