When I had my first meeting with Mr. Barry, I hadn't decided on an attorney yet. After our meeting, I felt very comfortable with his knowledge...My situation could have gone very badly, but with his knowledge and creative lawyering, I am very happy with the outcome decided by the prosecutor and judge...I feel Mr. Barry worked very hard to help me not have a conviction, and be allowed into the PTI program instead......I am very grateful for all of his hard work and knowledge of the law.......
Kevin proved to be not only an extremely competent advocate but an extremely caring person as well. He quickly managed the legal processes while always keeping family members informed and involved. He is a highly skilled lawyer but also someone you can depend on to make sure all necessary family members are continuously up-to-date with relevant information.
I cannot speak highly enough of Kevin and give him the highest possible rating.
Extremely supportive, knowledgeable, and always accessible. No matter how many cases, you always feel like yours is a priority. Handles dealings with parties involved with the case (prosecutor, judge, other attorneys) professionally and extremely well on your behalf.
I would highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking for a criminal defense attorney in NJ. He was a pro, and a good guy to boot! He represented me in a domestic matter, and delivered a victory for me in fairly routine order... Then he took on another project for me that was supposed to be a fairly easy, but was anything but! It was supposed to be a simple clerical/admin filing that would take a couple months to process through the courts. It wound up taking almost 2 years as a result of a ridiculously antiquated filing system in the courts of NJ. Kevin took on the job/project on a flat fee. I don't spend my day feeling bad for attorneys, but Kevin clearly lost out on that deal with me. However, he still stuck with it all the way through to the end! What more can I say... If you are looking for a lawyer with knowledge, experience, integrity and commitment to his client then look no further.
Mr. Barry handled a juvenile case for me and my son recently in Newark courthouse. I could have hired a family lawyer for the case, but I'm so glad that I went with Kevin. He has so much valuable experience dealing with Essex County jurisdiction. What I found was that he has dealt with most of the judges (on both sides -prosecutor and defendant) down there and he really explained the whole process in easy to understand, layman's terms. He handled our case with professionalism and gave us good, sound advice. I would definitely hire Mr. Barry again (hopefully not for the same offence!) if I ever need a lawyer who knows his way around the criminal justice system in NJ. HIGHLY recommended.
