Newville has won victories at the Minnesota Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals, and various state and federal trial courts. He led the successful fight for marriage equality in two states, secured protections for vulnerable Minnesota workers, and has emerged as an expert authority in civil rights litigation. Newville is a frequent speaker at civil rights events, community forums, colleges, and law schools. He has taught numerous continuing legal education courses, has been published in legal publications, and frequently appears in the media.

For five consecutive years since 2015, Newville has been recognized as a Super Lawyers Rising Star by Thompson Reuters, a rare distinction awarded to only 2.5% of practicing attorneys based on a combination of peer nominations and objective criteria.

In 2016, Newville was awarded The Equality and Justice Award by the Minnesota Lavender Bar Association for making significant contributions to address equality and justice. He was also one of 25 attorneys recognized nationally by The Advocate.

Newville serves on the Federal Practice Committee for the United States District Court for the District of Minnesota, a committee that works to improve the administration of justice in Minnesota’s federal courts. He was nominated to the Committee in 2018 by United States District Court Judge Patrick J. Schiltz.

Newville also serves as an investigator on the Hennepin County (4th District) Ethics Committee, has served on the board of the Minnesota chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association, and regularly volunteers as a judge for national and regional mock trial and moot court competitions.

Raised in rural Wisconsin, Newville was the first person in his extended family to attend college.
