The overall rating speaks for itself!i would recommend Mister Barner anytime!i am very happy with him as my lawyer,and I know for sure you will be as well!
Mr. Barner has been and is a great pleasure to work with. He is quick to respond to any questions or concerns that my husband and I might have with our immigration case. I would be more then happy to recommend his services to everyone I know. Thank you very much.
Bill Barner has handled 3 traffic related cases for me over the past four-five years. He has always delivered sound advice on all cases and delivered a realistic and accurate expectation for the result of each case. Along with his extensive knowledgable, Bill also has a very disarming and humorous side which only makes the experience of his representation that much less stressful.
Bill also specializes in immigration law. With his proven track record and positive word of mouth from others who've acquired his representation, I did not consider anyone else for handling my current immigrant visa application.
Mr. Barner has assisted our family in many legal issues in the last 4 years, ranging from traffic violations to criminal charges. All the charges were very well defended and dismissed properly through his extremely knowledge and professionalism. We were kept informed all the way and felt totally confident in his ability to represent us.
Mr. Barner had already helped my husband and I with all our immigration needs, specifically for me to move to the United States, after our marriage. He prepared all documents, prepared us for all that can be expected in the whole process as well as responded to all our questions/emails in a timely manner. He made the whole ordeal so easy for us that everything that happened, happened without any bumps in the road. He did such a great job, that we have returned to him now that it is time to remove the condition on my Visa, so that I can be a permanent resident here. He is very thoughtful, thorough and simply a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend Mr. Barner to anyone who needs a great immigration lawyer! Thank you for all your previous and continued help!
After my UK citizen husband was seized by ICE and held at the detention center, we retained Mr. Barner. I am a US citizen, had filed for my respectable, law-abiding husband's permanent residence but he had overstayed his visa briefly before we were married. I cannot begin to say how frightening and frustrating the whole experience proved to be and if it wasn't for Mr. Barner's superior legal skills and professionalism, my husband would have been deported back to the UK with the prospect of his being barred from the US for 10 years. From the very beginning, Mr. Barner impressed me with the speed and thoroughness of his legal research--even on the weekend, his fast drafting and submission of documents to ICE, and his sheer tenacity and initiative. He literally ended up saving the day at the very last possible moment when they had my husband about to board the plane back to the UK!! After he had been continually evaded by the Deportation Officer, Mr. Barner didn't give up. He contacted the DO's supervisor, and when that didn't yield results, he sought out the supervisor's supervisor!--a senior official in charge at ICE--and was able to secure a favorable outcome and my husband's subsequent release from detention. My husband and I cannot begin to thank Mr. Barner enough for his terrific work on this case. No ordinary attorney could do that! Based on our experience we would wholeheartedly and unequivocally recommend Mr. Barner to anyone looking for legal representation or advice.
I have have known Richard W. Barner since December 2012; he was my defense attorney whom provided outstanding final result. I can, with confidence say, that he is extremely competent and to the point. He is a person that puts in all his might into a task. He is a person of character, knowledgeable and honest. I would highly and gladly recommend Mr.Barner to any person I know.
My best friend recommended me, and since then my whole Immigration process has been in his hands, and I already have been approved fiance visa, and are now in the process of change of status, work permits, permission to travel, beside that he is a very nice person and has been very professional in the whole process making sure everything is well done since the very beginig.
Mr. Barner's guidance through this process was absolutely helpful to clear any doubts i might have. He told me how every step of the way was supposed to be carried on. He answered every single one of my questions and without a doubt was a very helpful lawyer.
I would highly and gladly recommend him to any person i know that is in need of a lawyer.
Mr. Barner is an exceptional attorney that I would recommend to anyone seeking legal counsel. He assisted my wife with her citizenship application and was swiftly able to coerce the United States Department of Homeland Security Citizenship and Immigration Services into making a decision on my wife's case. We had dealt with several other immigration attorneys prior to this but none were able to bring this matter to a resolution. We made over a dozen trips to our local immigration office and all it took was one trip with Mr. Barner.
