John has represented me for 4 years and has done an excellent job. Being a small business man I need help from time to time on various situations. He has handled contract disputes and civil matters along with advising me on responding to governmental agencies. I have never been disappointed and John responds in a timely manner with sound advise. He also has a good support staff. Donna, his assistant, has been very patient and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him to handle your legal needs.
John Barrett and his paralegal Donna Albert were extremely helpful in my family's recent legal needs. I needed to be named conservator of an inheritance for my minor child. John and Donna both were attentive and knowledgeable in what steps needed to be taken and promptly moved the process along. I would give them my highest rating and would recommend them every time for their specific areas of legal practice.
John Barrett helped me through a difficult divorce. His expertise in family law is superb! I would highly recommend John Barrett to anyone needing a family lawyer. Not only is he extremely knowledgable, he is also compassionate to his clients.
I have known John Barrett for nearly 5 years when he first handled my divorce case. Since then he has handled numerous contempt cases, a custody battle along with a modification of child support for me. I can't speak highly enough of his legal expertise. John practices in multiple areas of the law which makes his experience extremely beneficial when different issues arise. He is very respected in the legal community and well liked which is one of the many reasons he is always my first choice for legal representation. Each time I have been to court I have felt completely safe and confident with John by my side. I appreciate his calm and direct communication . I highly recommend John to any one I meet who is in need of an attorney.
I met John Barrett through a business partner some years ago. He has since guided me confidently through several business ventures and some legal issues, all while providing me with sound advice along the way. No business person in today's volatile economic climate can survive and make well informed decisions without good legal council. I feel confident with John in my corner and he's always a phone call away. He has also transitioned into my personal attorney as well and is helping me navigate through situations that would otherwise be much more difficult to handle. John Barrett is rare in that he is a lawyer who treats his clients like people and understands that their problems are more than just another day's work--those problems affect their lives.
Mr. Barrett handled a very sensitive personal matter, for our family, at a difficult time in our lives. He and his staff always kept us up to date, and was always there to answer the many questions that arose from day to day. I feel like I could not have had better representation during the entire process.
Mr. Barrett was a great lawyer. He always responded immediately, and gave me the best legal advice. He always wanted to do what was best for me and my case. My case was long and seemed grueling, but Mr. Barrett always made me a priority just like he does all his clients. I would recommend Mr. Barrett to anyone and will use him for all my legal needs.
Mr. Barrett has been an extremely exceptional lawyer. He always kept me informed and gave me the best legal advice. He was always honest and always dependable. I could not ask for a better lawyer.
Sloppy clerical mistakes, remedial lack of knowledge of specific case issues, evidence presented during initial meeting deemed as "unimportant" and dismissed - and then subsequently (after hearing) viewed as "important" after all, entire discussions of issues seemingly forgotten, contradictory legal advice which resulted in opposing side gaining legal precedent. A bar complaint is in the process of being filed, but learn from my mistake and trust your instincts. If something doesn't "feel right" or if you feel your attorney is not capable of handling your case, do not delay - find another one immediately!
John was extemely pleasant to work with on my divorce case. He was very professional, no nonsense, knowledgeable and compassionate. He listened to what I had to say and we worked on a plan together. His paralegal, Donna, was always available to help, somtimes just by lending an ear or tissue. Although the divorce was long and drawn out, their response to issues were in a timely manner. A great combo! I would recommend them to anyone going through this difficult time.
