This guy is a diamond! He's darn good at what he does! From the high profile to the minutia, he is the king. "I just want to win in the courtroom," he says again walking our a WINNER and I smiling at him in awe, trotted behind. What a guy! He's a winner!!!
I am glad he's in my corner. I would not leave 'home' without him.

I am still overjoyed. I am still awed at Mr. Helfand. I am bubbling over! I can hardly contain myself. My long ordeal is over! Over! In a flash! Can you believe that? I am still trying to digest it. I don't know how he does it, but he did. This is my first time working with him and this only goes to confirm what I believed he could have done for me had I been able to retain him back then. He is awesome. He is the best. Do they make them like this anymore? This is my first time ever being this satisfied with the outcome from an attorney. I am still gloating and bragging about him. He is awesome.
Mr. Helfand's on the battlefield approach works. I would love to see this guy in court. You should have seen him today. He was like a bee going from flower to flower sampling for where to land and collect pollen. He was busy and I mean busy. He was here and then there and back here and then over there and ... He was making my head spin. He was busy working for me. I don't know how he does it, but he knew where to come down and land. It worked and he WON! I love you, Mr. Helfand. I really, really do. You gave me back my life.
On the first day Mr. Helfand looked at my papers he saw what no one else did and said, "You are not on probation for it had began on the day that you were sentenced so it is over." Mr. Helfand was going for two things besides getting the VOP dismissed: one to completely close out the case or two to define 'the no contact' to supervised contact. Now imagine this: he got both. The former supercedes the latter and I am free. FREE! IT IS OVER! I AM FREE! FREE! My life is unencumbered. He WON! No more thought of recidivism for me. It is OVER!
Thanks, Mr. Helfand. You are the BEST!

When Mr. Helfand walks into the court room everyone takes notice. He has the aura of a super star and makes one wonder if under his classy business suit is he wearing a superman costume because he definitely has super powers in court. He is worth every penny and with him you will get what you pay for! Amazing lawyer!

When I first met Mr. Helfand, he presented a confidence that comes only with knowledge and experience. Not only did his manner put me at ease, but he put at ease my opponents in my case.
Mr. Helfand was able to resolve my case in my favor before it ever went to trial.
If there is a better possible resolution to a case, I cannot think of one.
He explained every step of the case, including all of my options, succinctly and thoroughly.
I am more than satisfied with Mr. Helfand's performance and would use him again, if need be.
Mr. Helfand receives my highest recommendation.

Words can't describe the skills and type of personality he has, Wouldn't change him for any other lawyer as he has experience, maintained contact with me at all times and I can honestly say, I trusted him 100%

I hired Barry to assist me with some gun related criminal charges. Being a professional and having a brother as an attorney, I knew that I need to hire the most competent legal defense that I could. I asked my brother a corporate attorney who to hire and without any hesitation he said Barry! He told as expected he is not going to be the least expensive but should be fair. I was so scared that I wanted to meet Barry ASAP. He came in on Sunday to meet me. He discussed my case with great concern for my justice and well being. He ethically told me that he can not promise anything as far as an outcome, but he will do whatever he can to ensure I get a fair trial. I hired him, and as a result all the charges were dropped. Kristin in the office was great in getting the expungement paperwork filed. If you are in a jam I would hire the best and that is Barry!

Mr. Helfand is one of the, if not THE, best criminal defense lawyer in the state of Maryland. His comprehensive knowledge of the law, criminal law in particular, is unparalleled. Barry has been defending alleged criminals so long now that police officers and people at the State's attorney's office get nervous simply hearing his name. He has certain aura to him that I've never seen in any other lawyer. People are silent when he speaks, they do not want to miss a single word he says... chances are it will be either the funniest or most profound thing they've heard all day.
The lawyers I consulted with prior to Barry seemed like they had more important matters to deal with and made minimal efforts to retain me as a client or show any concern for my case whatsoever. Mr. Helfand, on the other hand, made an effort to carefully and diligently prepare a defense for my relatively trivial DUI case while simultaneously preparing for 2 other murder cases.
Barry's work over the years has not gone unnoticed; the name Helfand carries much weight in the judicial system. We all know how slow and long it takes to get any administrative thing done in any court. Not only do things get done when "Helfand" is mentioned, they get expedited. I've seen it happen before my very eyes.
In sum, Barry Helfand is worth every single penny. If you want the best chances of obtaining a judgement in your favor (or getting your case thrown out completely) the Law Office's of Barry Helfand should be your first stop. If you don't believe me, take one step into his office and you will immediate notice the flood of awards Barry has been blessed with over the years... Top Maryland Lawyers, Top Washington Lawyers, Washington's Best Legal Minds, the list goes on. I promise you, you will not be upset when you hire Barry Helfand as your lawyer.
