Product Liability

We have spent decades fighting to hold manufacturers accountable for injuries and deaths caused by dangerous and defective products. During that time, we’ve helped families rebuild their lives, and forced nationwide recalls that saved others from suffering the same fate.

Trucking

Trucking companies put everyone else on the road in danger when they fail to follow the rules. We know the rules and have seen the severe and fatal injuries that follow when they are broken. That’s why we are passionate about fighting for the victims of trucking company negligence.

Catastrophic Injury & Wrongful Death

Some firms work on cases involving all types of injuries. We don’t. We commit our time and resources to catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases because big cases require focus and dedication.

Class Actions

Corporations often get away with fraud and other misconduct because they have expensive lawyers and endless resources. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Our class action team leverages our firm’s talent, knowledge, and resources to fight back on behalf of everyday consumers

Complex Civil Litigation

Some cases are simply bigger and more complex than others. We take pride in tackling difficult and unique cases through creative lawyering.

At the Newsome Melton Law Firm, we don’t just try cases, we get answers. We know: all lawyers do that. But in fact, it’s not that simple. Most law firms are built around volume practices. That means they take many cases, hoping to settle each as quickly as possible. For a lot of clients, especially those with relatively minor injuries, that’s good enough. But for those who have suffered the most severe sort of harm, it’s not. 

Their cases are complex, often pitting them against large companies that can hire top-flight legal talent to defend them. The cases are expensive to try, requiring expert testimony, detailed investigations, and enormous amounts of preparation, determination, and commitment. They demand resources most firms just can’t – and won’t – muster. The result: the most crucial issues and questions can go unanswered.
