If I were charged with a crime and knew that I would have to go to trial, I would not hesitate to use Zak. He is passionate about defending all his clients, but when someone persists in professing their innocence, Zak is a zealous advocate. He's also a really good man, and he relates well to clients. I highly recommend Zak Newman.

Zach is rare commodity in the world of trial lawyers these days - he loves a good jury trial. Rumor has it this guy actually had a trial on a civil commitment case to Moccasin Bend.... nobody does that... well, nobody except Zach.

I was very lucky to have Mr. Newman recommended to me. He not only gave my case plenty of attention, he got me the best possible outcome! Zac is very sharp, easy to communicate with, and most importantly he wants to help and never made my case feel less than a top priority! Friends I recommended to Zac were equally impressed. He is very friendly and flexible to your situation.



Zak' s overall intelligence and knowledge of the law was demonstrated with confidence on my case. He is a sharp one, getting me my best possible outcome each time I faced the judge in recent troubles. He is one of the best in my opinion. Believing in what is fair and just. Always shot me straight with all possible outcomes explained to me thoroughly. He seems to genuinely care.

Zak is the best attorney in Chattanooga! When I went to my husband’s very first court date... all charges were dismissed and he got it expunged from my husband’s record like nothing had ever happened. I’m glad we chose to go with Mr. Newman because we could not be happier with the outcome. :)
