Hire John Newsome now!!!
You might as well call him Uncle John, this lawyer treats his clients like family. He really saved me and my life, got me the best possible outcome for my situation and he was there every step of the way and stayed in constant communication. I won’t hire any other attorney, John is the man!!!

Excellent Attorney
Mr. Newsome was excellent to have in my corner. He takes the time to patiently listen, understand and then thoroughly tells you your options and what to expect moving forward. Anytime I reached out with a question, I never felt like I was bothering him or was in a rush. He continually updated and followed up with me without asking. Mr. Newsome provides excellent legal and client relationship services.

Don’t go to court without him!
Mr. Newsome is very compassionate and understanding when it comes to matters of law. He explained things clearly, worked to achieve the best outcome for my family, and was understanding of our special circumstances. He is a great attorney and compassionate man..... I would definitely use his services in the future.

The real deal
I hired John with the advice of a friend for my divorce proceedings. He called me back on a Saturday... (who does that?) Then met me at length for free (free consultation) then walked me thru the entire process like a 'big brother' telling me straight without agenda, reminding me I was 'Madame President'. He was very clear with me there were issues with my case he wasn't in favor of..'but I go where you say, Madame President' when I needed time to decide or consult with family he didn't pressure me. He even came up with an alternative to the Quadro saving me money and time. He told me to hire a counselor and to lean on my family and friends. He is easy to talk to, timely and an out of the box 'thinker'. He is the REAL deal!! Kristina

The Best!
John has been my attorney since 2010. He has handled multiple family law cases that ranged from simple to very sensitive. He is a genuine person who does not yank you around with false hopes to bleed hours out of you. He's honest. He has now represented several people in our family and we consider him our Family Attorney and a friend. I could not recommend him more. Our experience with him has always been outstanding.

My legal savior
John Newsome has done it, again! I have used John's services several times since 2010. This week, he walked on water with his brown wing-tip leather shoes, to get DPS off my back. It was just a hearing, but Mr, Newsome was well prepared. He stated my case to the judge, conspicuously. I never had a doubt of my lawyer's abilities, but I have been burned before by a bad lawyer. The judge ruled in our favor, as he should, because I have a lawyer that walks on water!! Newsome Is Awesome! But, seriously, I am giving Mr. Newsome a 5 star rating for all of the times he has represented me. He is always very focused on his client's and very easy to talk to. If you're reading this review, and need a lawyer in the Houston area, call John Newsome.

Great lawyer
Thanks to Mr. Newsome for his thorough counsel we were able to win the battle. He is very knowledgeable about the law and explains it for people to understand. Great job.

I have known John for a while now and when some legal issues arose for us he was very honest. That is definately a word that has not been easy to associate with attorneys lately for us. I would definately hire John in the future if necessary.

Imo, a rising legal star...
John is diligent, reasonably priced, and reliable.. But, it's his knowledge of the law that sets him apart.. It's also what allows him to practice many forms of law, so effectively.. He simply lets no detail or legal avenue slip through his grasp, which is why I really think he could become a legal giant in criminal defense.. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who needs a legal defense, or contract advice..

John Newsome is a wonderful attorney!
John Newsome is an excellent attorney. I spoke with many attorneys during the course of my divorce and I knew immediately after speaking with Mr. Newsome that he was the right choice. His rates are fair and reasonable, he is trustworthy, and I never had any problems getting in contact with him when necessary. I was referred to him by a friend and now Mr. Newsome has handled 4 divorce cases for my friends and I. Great attorney, great guy!

I have known John personally for over 20 years. I recently had an unfortunate encounter with our justice system. Plain and simple John got two cases dismissed. After that I was able to finalize an employment position with Sutherland Mortgage Services which was placed on hold because of the occurrence. Thanks again to a great person and Attorney.

Great Attorney!
I have hired John Newsome several times in the last 4 years, on criminal and family matters. He is an excellent attorney, fair and reasonable. I really appreciate the fact that he fights so hard to get me the results I'm looking for. I used to think all lawyers were the same, do as little as possible for an outrageous price, but Mr. Newsome is definitely the exception to the rule.
