We used Lori to handled our second-parent adoption. She was professional, knowledgeable and kept us abreast of everything that was taking place and what would happen during the court proceeding. She was fully prepared and always available to answer any questions we had, making it a smooth and easy process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney.
Was a client for divorce mediation and court document preparation. I found a general lack of attention to detail. Unfortunately, we were forced to hire another attorney to fix the inadequacy of her work.
I had an extremely poor experience with Lori. The process was very different than she had explained. She never returned my phone calls or responded to my requests to speak with her.
However, Her secretary was very polite and helpful.
I am an attorney who does not practice family law. When I needed to obtain a relocation order in my divorce I retained Lori's services. I did not know Lori before this, but had heard good things about her.
From the start, Lori was incredibly responsive and kept me informed at all times. Lori successfully obtained my relocation order and her fees were very reasonable. I cannot recommend Lori highly enough.
I went through a tough divorce last year (they're all tough, especially if you need a lawyer). Originally hired a different attorney who was uncommunicative, generally apathetic and unprepared. I switched to Lori Barkus on a recommendation from a friend, and was amazed at the difference. She returned emails and phone calls almost immediately (and when she was unavailable, her acumenical assistant did), and even though her caseload was probably high, she still seemed to care about mine. I highly recommend Lori.
