My situation was a long, drawn out, repetitious nightmare, but I could not have gotten through it peacefully without Joe. He took care of me from the beginning and saw it through to the end. He was patient with me, the opposing council, and the judge. He had much bigger cases that he could have been distracted with, but Joe and his staff made me feel like I was his only customer. Don't go anywhere else. Joe's your man.

We were in a frustrating situation and came to Joe from another referral. He and his staff were kind, patient, and very knowledgable. They took the time to listen and provided guidance that benefited our family and wasn't in it for the money - like most lawyers. We knew he had our best interest at heart and was straightforward with us through the entire process. In court he was professional and presented the case well. We will always recommend Joe for anyone going through any family legal issues.

When I contacted Mr Newberry I had absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into. Him and his staff was very patient and willing to help me through this difficult process and best of all it was not all about money with them. It seemed like they actually care about there clients when they are working a case. I would extremely recommend Mr Newberry and his staff to my friends and family if they ever are in need of his services.

Joe was my attorney over a 10 child custody month period and provided exceptional representation the entire time.
I was subject to a rather contentiousproceeding that had involved the Attorney Generals office coming after me for child support that had already been paid and an ex-spouse that was routinely threatening to move my children away from me.
Joe managed to help hold the AGs office at bay while this and other visitation issues where litigated. End result was increased visitation, all concerns with AGs office resolved and a geographical restriction on my ex-spouse preventing future moves
Fathers tend to fight an uphill battle in our legal system, Joe handled the entire stressful process with ease and ensured justice was attained
I highly recommend him, Thanks Joe!

My life would have been significantly enhanced had I received advice from Joe Newberry before I implemented any divorce action. He was a fantastic resource. I thought I could be a nice guy and structure a soft landing for my ex-wife. This ended to be a futile and counter-productive effort. Litigation is litigation and I never should have thought it could be “friendly". Joe set me straight and did a great job representing me. Talk to Joe first, you’ll be glad you did.

When I came to Joe I was in the middle of a divorce that had been going on for several years. I could not reach a reasonable settlement even though there was a relatively small estate involved. He and his staff worked very hard to get the deed done and after bantering with the other attorney for some time, we finally settled. I could not be happier with the outcome and I would recommend Joe to anyone that needs the tough things done. He has been very understanding and patient with my case, so 5 stars for Joe and his staff.

Joe came into my case in the middle and I was sure I was heading to court. He was able to negotiate a fair settlement and get me what I deserved.

I had a long and exhausting case with my Grandchild and let me tell you, this law office is the utmost caring and thorough law firm you will ever speak to. I hope that if you ever need an attorney you give them a try you WILL NOT be sorry. They were very prompt to contacting right out of the gate. I had a consultation the next day and the process started promptly after that. They were very organized and thorough and kept me in the loop the whole time. If I didn't understand I just shot and email it WOW they would turn right around and I would get a response. They held my hand through the roughest time in my life and even let me cried on their shoulders. This firm has my utmost respect and gratitude I deem them my forever blessing.
If and when I ever need an attorney I wouldn't ever goes elsewhere. FIVE stars in an understatement!!!

If you are reading this reference I hope your circumstances are different than mine were when I decided I needed to find an attorney. When I sought out the services of Leecraft and Newberry my criteria was quite simple I wanted a firm that was within walking distance of my downtown office and a family practice. At the time walking distance seemed more important, I could not have been further off the mark!
Our family, my wife and two children ages 9 and 11 were in a transition of moving from the Pacific Northwest to Austin; we had decided to leave the kids in school for the remaining 3 months of the semester and I would commute each week to Austin. In the process of getting ready to move I discovered that my wife was sharing our bank account and other things with a friend of hers; I decided to have and initial consultation with Joe Newberry to weigh out my options, 5 minutes into the consultation Joe’s assistant left the room, a few minutes later she returned with a background check on my wife’s friend that showed among other things he was a violent convicted felon. At that point Joe stated that for a person in my position there are three very important things to consider: the children, myself and our assets in that order, he then gave me some free advice and told me if I still wanted to hire his firm to come back once the subject matter of the advice had occurred.
My ordeal lasted a little over a year, instead of a few months mostly because I truly loved my wife and could not bear breaking up our family. Throughout the process I found out just how important hiring a family firm truly was, Joe, my representative, never lost sight of what was in my best interest, his partner who just happens to be his mother checked in occasionally and gave me guidance and advice only a mother could give and his associate a female, gave me a women’s perspective that proved invaluable.
On the day we stood in front of the Judge and he asked “what are we going to do with the gifts of the marriage?” I left the courthouse with custody of my two wonderful children and that is something most fathers only dream of! Thank You Leecraft and Newberry.

I met with Joe and his staff about 3 months before I actually filed. He drew up papers at that time so that when it came time for me to file, he had everything in order. He and his staff were punctual, thorough, and very fairly priced. He was very honest with me about what would happen, addressed any issues that MAY come up, and fought for my rights. Although it was not always what I wanted to hear, he still insisted on telling me the truth instead of just telling me what I wanted to hear. I would recommend Joe and his staff over and over. I have, in fact, sent several of my best friends to him and they are all very satisfied with his work.
