Review Andrew Newsom

  • Portland's Best Family Lawyer

    5.0 stars

    Posted by Chris W.

    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..

    i highly recommend andy to be retained in any matrimonial matter. he handled my divorce proceedings with the uptmost of care and due diligence, including the settlement negotiations and appearances in court. we had full and complete discussions of strategy, process and procedure along the way, which eliminated the high anxiety associated with the resolution issues. among the issues, he was especially sensitive toward the mitigation of the separation impact to the children and the due care that was needed. andy showed a great deal of client care along with his substantial legal conduct.

    Andrew was referred to me through a friend, who I can’t thank enough for recommending him to me.
    I had a very unusual case and the circumstances were less than pleasant to work with. Everything I heard was that I would have to “settle” for 70/30 split and my ex would get full custody. Well, that wasn’t the case. Andrew worked extremely hard on my case, guiding me, coaching me on the steps, process and procedures of a child custody case. He was there for me anytime I needed him and I felt that I was his number one priority (even though he was working just as hard on other cases for other people as well). His attention to detail and knowledge of the laws are second to none.
    When all was done, Andrew got me what he said he would do and that was 50/50 with joint custody. I walked out of that court house knowing that I was protected and represented by the best attorney. Without a doubt, Andrew is a top notch, professional and extremely dedicated attorney.
