He almost single-handedly outperformed a very large and very expensive team…

I secured the services of Scott Newar and his team in late 2014 after making extensive inquiries and as a result of both positive references and a telephone interview. As a former senior executive of a large, multinational firm serving the energy industries from its headquarters in the Houston area, but as a non USA citizen based in Europe, I needed someone who could quickly grasp a very complex and potentially multi-jurisdictional employment related case, advise me on the range of options open to me and represent my interests on a day to day basis.. I found Scott to be thorough, a great communicator, fast to take action and someone who kept me appraised every step on the way. He crafted and executed an outstanding strategy that resulted in a settlement prior to trial well in excess of my expectations. It played out exactly as he said it would. His performance during depositions and hearings was flawless and he almost single-handedly outperformed a very large and very expensive team that my former employer lined up against us. His interpersonal skills and professionalism clearly led to the appointed judge having great sympathy with my case, which I believe was a factor in reaching a settlement. His dedication and professionalism never wavered for a moment.

Scott demonstrated tenacity in negotiating with my former employer’s lawyers

I am very grateful for being referred to Scott Newar following a professionally devastating experience. Scott successfully navigated negotiations with my former employer, and I received a settlement that I never would have been able to get without him. Scott demonstrated tenacity in negotiating with my former employer’s lawyers and always kept me informed of the progress. His communication was at a high professional standard. I would highly recommend his practice.

I am a lawyer. I have practiced for many years. Courtroom litigation. High stakes. Heady stuff. Yet, when I needed someone to represent me in the courtroom, I went to Scott.

He worked relentlessly to build the strongest case possible

I knew I had chosen the right attorney during my first meeting with Scott.  My complex case was handled expertly every step of the way by Scott and his hardworking staff.  He worked relentlessly to build the strongest case possible, answered all my questions and was accessible for concerns throughout the lengthy process.  I feel fortunate he took my case.

Win, lose or draw, Scott Newar is my first and only choice.

I have known Scott Newar for more than 20 years. Our association began as lawyers working for a nonprofit legal services organization (East Texas Legal Services). At ETLS, Scott showed himself to be a passionate advocate for the rights of the underdog. I saw, early in Scott’s career, that his passion, combined with his growing skill as a litigator, would make him a force to be reckoned with. I continued to observe Scott’s legal activities over the years, including his professional development through Legal Specialization in Texas Labor and Employment law and his designation as a “Super Lawyer” in Texas. On several occasions, I required legal representation in civil matters. My first and only choice, hands down, was Scott. Scott listens, he advises, and he advocates. He directed me when decisions were clear, and he helped me to decide when strategies were a matter of choice. He allowed me to participate where possible and always kept me informed. Win, lose or draw, Scott Newar is my first and only choice.

My only regret, I did not know about Scott when I first filed my lawsuit…

I highly recommend Attorney Scott Newar “bar none.” He has a unique ability to explain the judicial process in simple English. He acts as a a guide down the confusing highway of the judicial process. Scott gives you better than his best. If you need to go against a giant like Goliath, it is great to have Scott as your David. He will fight as your justice warrior until all avenues have been exhausted. Regardless of the outcome of the case, you can be sure that you gave it your best using an ethical, hard working and committed attorney like Scott.  My only regret, I did not know about Scott when I first filed my lawsuit, he came into to salvage my case after the work of another less committed attorney. Don’t make the same mistake I did…

Former pharmaceutical employee

I cannot thank Mr. Newar enough for all he did for me.

I am a middle aged female who worked for a large oil company as an Accounts Payable Supervisor.  I became ill and was out on FMLA leave.  While I was on FMLA leave, the company delivered a letter to my home stating that I had been terminated but gave no reason why.

Upon receiving the letter, I was devastated, embarrassed, lost my self-esteem, became very depressed and it almost destroyed my marriage due to the mental condition of being terminated without cause I became very different person.

I was only familiar with a few labor laws, had never had to hire an attorney but felt I was unjustly terminated. Therefore, I knew I needed an attorney to find out if there was anything I could do.  I didn’t know where to go or to call except to consult with the company’s union attorney.  He advised me he could not take my case due to a conflict of interest due to me not being in the union and stated since I did not have an employee contract with the company my case was little to none.  However, he highly recommended me to attorney Scott Newar.

I called Mr. Newar and explained my situation to him. Mr. Newar was very honest and upfront with me from the beginning. Due to his truthfulness, professional manner, knowledge of labor laws and being upfront with me, I chose to hire Mr. Newar to represent me.

Mr. Newar proved the company did unjustly terminate me and won the case against the company.

Today, I have my self-esteem back and can proudly look at any of the company’s employees with dignity when I see them from time to time at a grocery store, movie theater, club, etc.  I cannot thank Mr. Newar enough for all he did for me.
