I am very satisfied with the way Mr. Barnes handled my case. He was very professional and got a much better outcome than what i had expected. He explained everything in great detail and answered every question i had. Even though i hope i won't need him again, if another problem occurs i will return to him. I will also recommend him to anyone i know without hesitation.

John Barnes handled my case in an effective and professional manner. He represented me and settled my case for a better outcome than I expected. It was a tough case and I am grateful. I would be pleased to have Barnes represent me again, though I am taking steps to change my lifestyle to not need such representation.
Overall: an excellent job and I recommend John Barnes and the Garza lawfirm to others.

I am extremely satisfied with Mr. Barnes' work. Mr. Barnes just handled a financial situation for me that had been hanging over my head for several years. Other attorneys told me that there was no way to settle the situation, but Mr. Barnes found that way - and he found it very quickly. Mr. Barnes is an excellent and knowledgable attorney, and in addition, his integrity is beyond reproach. I am pleased to recommend him to anyone needing legal assistance.

John is great! We hadn't met in person before we met at court so I had a little difficulty recognizing him. He is professional, helpful, and I was glad I had him there with me. He explained everything that was happening. He listened very well to all the information I provided and answered all my questions and concerns. He advised that while not being able to tell the future he explained to me what he expected to happen... And it did! We ended up with all of the citations being dismissed except one, a misdemeanor that I was guilty of. I would recommend him highly, and would not hesitate to hire him again under similar circumstances.

Mr Barnes considered everything in my case making it a completely personal experience. He was quick to respond to any of my questions, even if I asked the same thing multiple times. I felt confident throughout my case as Mr Barnes walked me through everything step-by-step and made sure that I understood what was happening. Apart from the great service on a personal level, on a professional level Mr Barnes was excellent in dealing with my case. This was the first time I have used a lawyer and I am extremely glad I employed his services as he got me the best result possible so I was very happy with the overall outcome. I Would highly recommend Mr Barnes to anyone needing a criminal defence lawyer and will definitely be passing on his details to anyone I know that is considering hiring a lawyer.

John was very professional, hard working and diligent in preparing my defense and succesfully resolving my situation. He has excellent communication skills and is able to explain the legal terminology in simple and understandable language. I never felt alone while incarcerated because I knew that John would faithfully bring me news and information as soon as he received it. This attorney is compassionate and will treat you as a real live person. I highly recommend John Barnes as a criminal defense attorney.
