Attorney Profile

In recent years, few lawyers have successfully tried as many serious and complex lawsuits as Dwayne Newton. From billion dollar natural resources cases to personal injury and commercial cases, clients have found that Dwayne's unusual combination of common sense, intuition and aggressiveness gets results. In cases that threaten the client's existence as a business, Dwayne's ability to see the big picture helps him focus on the crucial issues of the case when other lawyers get bogged down in details.

Board certified in personal injury trial law, Dwayne has been winning cases for 25 years. He has often been called upon to try cases that other lawyers thought could not be handled because they were too big, too hard, too complex or too dangerous.

Dwayne is a graduate of the University of Houston Law Center (J.D.) and Houston Baptist University (B.S.). He is a member of the Texas Bar Association, Houston Bar Association and the Texas Association of Defense Counsel. Dwayne has been named as a Texas Super Lawyer multiple times and has been inducted by his peers into the American Board of Trial Advocates. He has also received Martindale-Hubbell's highest rating for an attorney, AV*.

*CV, BV and AV are registered certification marks of Reed Elsevier Properties Inc., used in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the confidential opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
