Chris and Mike Newton have opened their new law practice, The Newton Firm, with an emphasis on personal injury litigation, disability claims, wills and estates and business disputes. The Newton Firm brings more than 50 years of combined legal and business experience.

Mike spent a majority of his 25-plus year career as a partner in a large regional law firm, where he represented national insurers, big box retail stores, national restaurant chains and other major corporations and businesses.

From automobile accidents, slip and fall incidents, workers compensation claims and dog bite cases to defective products and tractor-trailer accidents, Mike has a broad range of trial and litigation experience.

He is one of a small number of lawyers who has been designated as a board certified civil trial specialist by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He has also been recognized as a Mid-South Super Lawyer since 2013.

Mike now focuses on helping individuals and families who have been injured due to the fault or negligence of another. Contact him at mnewton@thenewtonfirm.com.

Chris brings over 25 years of legal and business experience to the Newton Firm. For over a decade, Chris worked as an in-house attorney for a large disability insurance company. In that capacity, Chris handled a substantial number of litigated matters throughout the country involving both individual disability insurance policies and group disability insurance policies governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.

Chris now seeks to help individuals who have been denied, or are seeking, disability insurance benefits. He also focuses on representing clients in all stages of social security disability proceedings, general business matters and wills, trusts and estates.

In addition to being an attorney, Chris is a certified public accountant whose experience includes work with a big four accounting firm. Contact him at cnewton@thenewtonfirm.com.
