More than everything i really appreciated Brian's availability and responsiveness. Icing on the cake he exceeded all our expectations.

Brian is intelligent, a hard worker, and has a keen mind for identifying key issues in cases and aggressively pursing them; yet, he is considerate of clients' needs, facts and circumstances.

Brian has been our corporate counsel since the company opened. He's responsive and diligent. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an aggressive attorney.

I've worked with many lawers and I have to say the Brian Barakat is the best attorney I've ever worked with.
In this particular case, I went through 3 attorneys to get to Brian. The others either couldn't help me or weren't knowledgeable enough to know exactly what to do. He knew what to do, took my case, and charged me a very reasonable amount (less then the others wanted to charge).
Brian will most definitely be my first call for any legal matter that arise in South Florida!

I recently won my DUI trial thanks to the attorneys at Barakat, Jacobs & Associates. They took the time to really listen to me and learn the unique facts of my case. As a result, they believed in my innocence and were able to convince the jury as well.
I strongly recommend Brian Barakat and Bruce Jacobs to anyone who needs real help with a criminal matter.

Mr. Barakat was recommended to me by another attorney. I have used him in two cases involving real estate in the Tampa area. They involved deposits on two separate condos. Mr. Barakat was able to negotiate without litigating and I received over 80 percent of my original deposit. He was up front with his guess on fees when questioned. I sent two close associates to him after my experience. They both had successful outcomes. The first was locked into litigation over a commercial property. He was represented but the case had continued for over two years. I convinced him to sit down with Brian and let him review the case. He decided to switch attorneys and won the case within a year. The second gentleman was involved in the same condos previously mentioned and also had a successful outcome. I feel that Brian's biggest asset is his way of viewing the case that he is presented. He combines knowledge with a methodical plan to succeed for his clients

As a transactional attorney, I need litgation counsel to be able to rely upon and to send my best client, family or friend to if the need arises, which I have. I confidently rely upon his services and know that my referrals to Brian are in excellent hands.

it is a privilege to recommend Brian. I have been practicing white collar criminal defense for 25 years. My experience with Brian is that he is well experienced inside and outside of the courtroom. He is knowledgeable of the law, has command of the courtroom and excellent communication skills.

Kept me informed of my case. He was always available when I had any questions and still maintains a relationship with me, his past client.
