Everett Newton

  Everett Newton holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and has been awarded a Doctorate of Jurisprudence by the University of Houston School of Law.  Licensed to practice law since 1992, he is a member of the State Bar of Texas as well as several other professional associations, including the Texas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, Texas Municipal Justice Bar Association, Dallas Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, and Mensa.  He is also a past president of the Dallas Municipal Justice Bar Association.  For over four years, he hosted “The Everett Newton Show,” a law-oriented talk radio show, on CBS Radio’s KLLI-FM Dallas affiliate, and has appeared on “The Russ Martin Show” since 1997.   The Firm Berlof & Newton, P.C. was formed in March, 2001 by Darrin Berlof and Everett Newton, both of whom were solo practitioners for many years prior the formation of the firm.  By joining forces, both realized that they could combine their experience and skills to better serve the community’s legal needs.  Our attorneys, as well as our staff, have the training, experience, and know-how to get the job done.  Our firm is large enough to undertake your legal matter with confidence, yet small enough to remain personable.  Many of our new clients are referrals that we receive from existing clients, or are referred by other attorneys who know our reputation for excellence within the legal community. At Berlof & Newton, P.C., we understand that you have a choice when selecting an attorney.  We realize that your legal matter is important to you.  It’s important to us, too.  Whether you are charged with a first degree felony, a class “C” misdemeanor traffic violation, or any other case we might undertake on your behalf, rest assured we will zealously represent your interests.  We hope you will consider choosing us to assist you with your legal matter, and we look forward to having an opportunity to serve you!
