Travis Newton holds a B.A. in Psychology from Clemson University. The Oxford Dictionary defines psychology as the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behavior in a given context. The physiological response to a police traffic stop can activate the sympathetic nervous system, triggering acute stress responses that often mimic signs of impairment. Standardized field sobriety tests are unreliable based on the methodology used in developing the tests and the scripted instructions police officers are trained to deliver during DUI investigations.

After graduating from Clemson, Travis Newton spent three years as a Market Development Manager for a Fortune 500 Company before resigning to accept an academic scholarship to attend the Appalachian School of Law in Southwest Virginia. As a law student, Travis Newton was a founding member of the Appalachian School of Law Christian Legal Society and a summer extern for the 8th Circuit Public Defender's Office under the direction of Criminal Defense Attorneys Charles Gross and Rauch Wise.

After law school graduation, Travis Newton accepted a position as an associate attorney at the Cogdill Law Firm in Greenville, SC before founding Travis A. Newton Law P.A. in his hometown of Anderson, SC (2007). Since then Travis A. Newton Law P.A. has defended thousands of clients in South Carolina Summary and General Sessions Courts.
