My first riddle received pretty good reaction, so I'm trying a new one. The riddle goes like this:

My prefix is an amphibian,

My suffix heavier than you.

My infix abbreviates the thing the suffix describes,

And the whole word is a scientist and a lawyer.

I think the answer is

Newton

My prefix is an amphibian,

My suffix heavier than you.

My infix abbreviates the thing the suffix describes,

Wt - abbreviation of weight

And the whole word is a scientist and a lawyer.
