4.5 stars 19 totalReview Thomas Barton
Tom fought tooth and nail to make sure I got the best possible outcome in my case which was a dismissal on a charge of possession for less than 1 oz. He let me know from our first conversation whether or not he felt confident he could help me and told me he does not take on cases where he doesn't think he can get the charge reduced or dismissed. I liked that alot about him, he's very honest. Him and his assistant Amy were very helpful and pleasant through out the entire process. If I could not talk to Tom, I was always able to get a hold of Amy to find out what was going on with my case, this kept my mind at ease. Thanks to them for the thorough communication and making sure I understood all the details. He's reasonably priced and worth every penny!
I cannot thank Mr. Barton enough for his assistance with a speeding ticket that my 19 year old son was given. He was able to negotiate the consequences of his speeding into terms that really made a difference. Defensive driving school, a 3 page written paper and a fine. Mr. Barton also went out of his way to explain to my son the importance of having a clean driving record not only in the eyes of the law, but with insurance companies. Thank you so much for all of your help and guidance!!!
He worked extremely hard to prove my innocence and cared about me coming out on top told me to stand by the truth which I did and got my case dismissed! I can breathe again and move on with my life like I planned on doing.
Tom gave me several options/ paths of ways to approach my case. Once I chose how I wanted to proceed he supported my decision and fought for the best outcome. Easier and more attainable options were available, but he still gave me advice on all possible scenarios. I have already recommended Tom to friends and co-workers.

I got a DUI after being pulled over because of failure to maintain lane. This was my first experience ever with being in trouble with the law. My situation was more complicated because there was a minor in the car. This counts as another DUI along with child endangerment which takes it to another level. My friend who use to work in law enforcement told me to call Tom Barton and no one else. I called Tom immediately and he told me to come by his office and we would talk. This was a start of a pattern he had of always being available for me when I needed him. There was always a real person to talk to when you called Tom's office and you got attention to any concern quickly. Tom asked me a favor and that was to stay steady through this process and not to worry because that is what I paid him for. He wanted me to be calm and continue with my life without letting this dominate my thoughts for the next several months. He didn't worry at all because he is smooth, confident and very experienced. I did everything that Tom asked me to do before my court date which was a huge part of the positive outcome. Tom is highly respected and people listen to him. Tom never came to me with doubt even though the outcome of what the prosecutor wanted was very different than I could have ever imagined. I was facing 30 days in jail along with fines, community service and losing my license. Tom never quit until he got what he wanted for me. I truly felt like he was fighting for a family member. He did the same for his other clients as I listened to their cases before mine. His heart was in it 100 present. The outcome of mine was beyond my expectations. Some of my charges were dropped to a lesser charge. I didn't lose my license and my jail time was 48 hours which ended up getting cleared after 24. Tom and God make a great team! Tom cares about the case and also my future. Many times our conversation would turn into how this has been a positive experience for my future. He doesn't want repeat business. He truly cares!

I was facing my 3rd DUI in the worst county HENRY, but Mr. Barton helped me out, to where he saw nothing but the facts to the case to where he left the prosecutor speechless in defending me, from my seat I've had people asking me for his info and where others where appealing to the judge they needed more time to hire a lawyer they wanted to hire Mr. Barton on the spot, yeah he had that type of charisma in the courtroom. I am very very happy with the out come where i kept my license and found not guilty of DUI, he is the real deal and he is truly respected in the courtroom from him to and his assistance when they says everything is going to be alright trust me when i say it everything is going to be alright. No run around just straight truth to the situation I'm sorry that you have to look on this review but stop, this is as far as you need to go, give him a call. If you need someone who will fight in your corner again, give him a call. He is truly the BEST!!! Thank you again Mr. Barton

Mr Barton represented me well in my case and treated me like a family member. He is a lawyer, who believed in my innocence from day one. He looked at my eyes and knew that I was wrongly accused and fought until my case was dismissed.

I could not find my son after he had received a DUI. I called Mr. Barton and his promptness and kindness help me find my son. He was so kind and answers every phone call and email. This is a plus for an attorney because most don't . I would recommend him for any case!!
