    • I do not recommend Curtis Barnes.

    I Hired Mr. Barnes to represent me in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. It was the worst experience . When I went in Front of the Judge .Mr . BARNES did not have my paperwork complete they gave him 24 Hours to get it to them . He missed a creditor in the amount of 1000.00 .He said he would take care of it . He never did . He would never respond to emails which I still have saved . Which almost cost me the repossession of my truck. He told me the creditor couldn't take it. Which in fact they could & I had to take care of that situation on my own & to top it off he never told me !!! I found out myself & contacted him . He has a lady take all his calls from her home & I would call and and call with . No call backs . I always received an excuse why Mr Barnes was not available .Than she would not even answer the phone . To this day my creditor was never discharged like Mr. Barnes said that he would take care of . It was a simple Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I Think I DESERVE A REFUND! SO I CAN PAY MY CREDITOR ...IN MY EXPERIENCE I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND MR.Barnes ...IF YOU DO ..GOOD LUCK!

    • I recommend Curtis Barnes.
    • I hired Curtis more than 3 years ago.
    • Curtis handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I was charged with felony burglary, criminal trespass, theft and other related charges in Berks County, Pennnsylvania. I told Curt that I couldn't be guilty because I wasn't present at the scene of the alleged burglary since I was working more than sixty-five miles away. Curt took the time to prepare me for a jury trial. He contacted and had my employer , who backed up my alibi, present for the trial. He also did a terrific job of cross examining the Commonwealth witnesses. After a two day trial, the jury came back in less than fifteen minutes and found me not guilty of all charges. I really owe a debt of graditude to Mr. Barnes.
