Sybil Vogtle Newton is a partner at Starnes Davis Florie and have practiced with the firm for over twenty-five years. I currently head the firm’s Appellate Law and Written Advocacy Group.
Prior to my position with the firm’s Appellate Group, I had an active trial practice, participating in over twenty jury trials, defending primarily medical malpractice actions across the state.
I have handled a variety of appeals on behalf of litigants and non-litigants who have hired me to intervene as amicus curiae as well. I was appointed by the Alabama Supreme Court in 2012 to serve a second term as a member of the Standing Committee on Alabama Rules of Appellate Procedure until October 2015.
I was recognized in 2012 as a leading Appellate practitioner in the Eleventh Circuit Benchmark: Appellate and in the 2012 edition of Alabama Super Lawyers.
