Mr. Barnes represented me with regard to an auto accident and did an excellent job. I was very satisfied with the result of my case and believe that this matter resolved favorably because he was my attorney. I was impressed with Mr. Barnes’ knowledge not only as to the legal issues in my case, but also with his knowledge regarding my injuries and the medical issues as well. Mr. Barnes’ was aggressive in resolving my case, but most importantly, he maintained a level of professionalism at all times. I found Mr. Barnes to be an excellent speaker and someone who can really advocate for his clients. Mr. Barnes’ staff also worked very hard behind the scenes, and I am very grateful to them. I would without a doubt retain Mr. Barnes again in the future and would recommend his services.

Steve was really great to work with, he was very trustworthy and kept me informed on what the status of my case was at all times. I would highly recommend Steve to friends and family and in fact I have recommended him to many people already.

My legal matter, while appearing straightforward on the surface, was problematical because of my extensive medical history from previous accidents and a service-connected disability. I needed an attorney who could work through the obvious obstacles and get results, and Steve Barnes came through. Steve and his outstanding legal staff handled my situation in a most professional manner. They successfully negotiated a fair settlement for me and reduced my outstanding medical bills resulting in a higher portion of the award coming to me. I would definitely recommend this attorney to my friends and family.

I was referred to Mr. Barnes after my initial case for my accident was one with the first insurance. Mr. Barnes was very professional in assuring that all our bases were covered when we continued forward trying to get a settlement from my insurance. His great staff was dilegent at keeping me informed as the case went along.

Attorney Stephen Barnes really came through for me at my Jury Trial. I gave him as much information I could about me personally & auto accident related. He was able to create a factual timeline, after reviewing all my personal & medical information. He really impressed me with his vast assortment of medical knowledge. He was able to discuss medical terminology with ease, when questioning the medical experts on both sides. He was quick to catch any medical misleading statements from the opposing side, and that did not relate to my specific case. There were countless legal rules to follow during trial. He was well versed in staying between the lines. This was one of the most important events in my life. It was very hard for me to put my full trust in someone. I was so relieved once I saw how he handled everyone. At one point I was speechless after a great line of questioning. The only thing I could do is look at him & say “ You ROCK!” Keep in mind I am a 44 year old woman, but he had just blown me away. Needless to say, the Jury Verdict was in our favor & we won. He was able to make the Jury see the ‘truth” & do the right thing.

I am an expert in the field of economics. I have had a working relationship with Steve Barnes for approximatel 17 years. He is very thorough in his representation of his clients' interests and is very astute in his understanding of the economics in his cases. He listens to feedback given, regarding my area of expertise, but retains control of his client's best interest.

In my years of working with attorneys, I was recommended to Mr. Barnes and I have yet to meet an attorney who has an outstanding client contact (every single time I called, he took my calls), extremely professional and his legal knowledge in his field far exceeded my expectations!! He fought for "me" and the results were far beyond of what I expected because he did not "give in or gave up"!!! His trial experience and knowledge of the law was incredible. He is one of the best or best trial attorney that I have ever met. I will always recommended him to my family or friends because I know that he will give them the 150 percent given to me!

I have had Steve for my personal attorney for over two years and I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for an attorney that truly cares about you as a person and not just a client. Steve is very thorough and never fails to stay in contact with you. The ladies on his staff are warm and friendly and do return your phone calls in a prompt and courteous manor. Any person would be in great hands with Steve as their attorney.

Mr. Barnes represented myself and my mother in a wrongful death case against a hospital regarding my father's death. He not only got my mother some compensation to help her live on her own now that my father is gone, but he also got us some answers regarding what exactly happened that night when my father died (which at least provided some closure for our family).
One thing that I really liked about him was that he was sensitive to what my mother was going thru, but he was also very straightforward with us. Early on, he told us what we could expect to get (and not get) from pursuing this lawsuit with him as our attorney and then he was able to deliver on what he told us he would. He also was good about explaining to us how the law worked regarding these cases, what we could expect during the various stages of the process, and he was always consistent with what he said to us. His paralegal was also really good about explaining exactly what all the papers were that we were signing and what was going on with the case.
I hope I’m never in a position of needing Mr. Barnes services ever again, but I would highly recommend him to anybody who needs an attorney to represent them in a medical malpractice lawsuit. He is honest, straightforward, and seemed to know the law inside out regarding medical malpractice.
