I highly recommend Mr. Newsom. I couldn't be more confident in what I am doing without his voice of reason and consistent advice. He is skilled, forthright, professional and easy to communicate with. In a court room he is organized, respectful and to the point. He is a solid attorney who understands the realities of divorce and custodial procedures, not just while dealing with the court but also in guiding his clients towards a fair and realistic resolution. Having been a client with Gearing Richner and McGrath for several years (Mike McGrath successfully handled my divorce and recommended Andy for new issues) I have been very satisfied as a client and continue to receive sound advise. I wouldn't want to walk into any negotiation or courtroom without him. Linda Moore, his assistant is a valuable asset and support.

Andrew was my Divorce Attorney for almost 2 years. Because of him my court outcomes could not have turned out any better. Andrew was informative, thorough, and always professional. At an extremely difficult time in my life he guided me through making sure I was awarded a fair settlement. Linda Moore, his assistant was also always available to answer any question I had.
Thank you to both of you.

Divorce is awful, but Andrew immediately put me at ease when I met him. He listened and asked questions, he gave me guidance and advice and this was BEFORE I hired him. Andrew is an honest attorney that works with integrity and honesty. Andrew continues to be available to me for questions and advice and I appreciate knowing that he is there if needed. Andrew is an attorney you can trust to work for you and with you to et a favorable outcome.

If you want the most favorable outcome to a divorce, hire Andrew Newsom. Believe me, divorce is not a time to put you future, or the futures of your children, into the hands of anyone else. As a father of two, I was blindsided by divorce. When I hired Andrew, I got a lawyer who knew the law, inside & out. I got a lawyer who listened (often when I was emotional) and calmly kept me updated through the entire proceeding. And I got a lawyer who put me at an advantage every time he walked into a courtroom. As a result, I got a resolution to my divorce that few Dads experience. I'm a dad with sole custody of my sons. And Andrew Newsom knows the names of both of them. I also received a judgment that was financially favorable. He's a pro, and if you're lucky enough to retain his skills, you'll get the best possible outcome. I know I did.

Mr. Newsom started representing me towards the end of my very contentious divorce and custody case. He made me feel like he was involved in my case from the beginning. Andrew stood his ground against the opposing attorney and always fought for the best interest of myself and most importantly, my young children.

Andrew and everyone I worked with on his team were professional and caring for me as a person, not just a case. He is an attorney, good at what he does, who also worked to provide the service needed in the most efficient manner. I will use him in the future for any items that remain from the divorce and highly recommend him.

Divorce, separation, and child custody issues are draining. There are so many things to know and to take care of. Having someone who can guide you, keep a level head, and help you make decisions that make sense for everyone is a must. Andrew Newsom is that kind of lawyer. He helped me do what needed to be done in a way that was kind, thoughtful, and made sense. He is professional, caring, and knows his law! Without his help, I don't believe I would be where I am today, and for that I am truly grateful.

I can't say enough great things about Andy and his team. My case had many complicated facets involved including: Child Custody, Relocation (out of state), Substance Abuse, and Mental Health. Andy came up with a plan of action to help me move forward in my life without having to even enter the courtroom. He listened to the facts and based on his knowledge and experience developed a plan to help me get divorced quickly (2 months from the point we sat down together), coached me on how to communicate with my ex effectively, and explained the best and worst case scenarios along with the risks and rewards of each course taken. His service to me was invaluable. I can't recommend Andy Newsom enough!

Would I recommend him? Absolutely yes! Andrew Newsom is an extremely well-educated lawyer! When I first met him I was apprehensive to his youthfulness, but that quickly faded as I decided to hire him and we met to discuss details. He definitely knows case history / laws. Add to his knowlege, he is personable, compassionate and likeable! He listens, takes notes, learns every detail about your situation that would provide background for research he may need to proceed with your case. He is also extremely polite to opposing lawyers - I witnessed that several times when my own feathers were ruffled and I wanted to lash back. His professional maner during deposition, trial and email correspondence is to be commended. That gives you a good feeling. I have had a wonderful experience with Mr. Newsom! And yes, he won the case for me.

My experience with Gearing Rackner Engel & McGrath has been wonderful! Mr. Newsom is professional, knowledgeable, incredibly intelligent, and is probably more adept at seeing all angles of a situation than anyone I know, which has proven to be of great significance in the matter for which I have engaged him. Further, he always kept me informed and updated with the status of my case; always made himself available; and kept his eye on mitigating litigation costs. I can say without hesitate or reservation, I would use him again because of his professionalism, diligence, helpfulness, and sense of humor..
