Ben is an amazing Attorney who helps in all areas of your issue. He goes above and beyond to help you with your case; its just unbelievable. My best friend Michelle preferred me to him for what I'm going through and super blessed he became my lawyer. He is trustworthy, honest, sincere, dependable; he has a good sense of humor, and he is always there. If you need a child case lawyer; I highly recommend Ben!

My Kids and myself were the victims of domestic violence. Attorney Ben Barnett took our case and helped us through the Order of Protection process , the court hearings, and the final outcome...
To be specific, he kept me and the children safe through court orders of protection, was able to secure full custody of my children, get us state required child support, and get put in place a permanant order of protection for me and my children aginst a unruly and violent mother. Mr Barnett always kept in constant communication with me even on holidays when myself and my children were threatened.. I could always rely on him to promptly respond to me and rapidly give me solutions and advice..
He would always answer any questions my children and family had in the courtroom.
As serving in the law enforcement field earilier in my life, I have been in many courtrooms and watched many attorneys and have never seen an attorney who is personally concerned with his clients and fights for justice for his client as Mr. Barnett is. He is a fighter for his clients and will work hard to ensure that his clients rights are protected and justice is served.
In conclusion I have peace for myself and my children now and can return to a normal life. At the beginning of this ordeal I placed my trust in Ben Barnett and now my children and I do not have to ever worry again about being threatened, harrased, or stalked by a unstable person. I would reccomend him above any other attorney that I know of in East Tennessee..

Mr Barnett is a very competent and reliable lawyer. He was hot on my case from the minute I hired him. (literally). I always knew what the status was on my case and what direction it was going. He was well prepared and kept me relaxed. He was with me at my deposition even though he didn't need to be. When we went to court he kept me informed about what was happening and what the plan was. He even came to court when he was deathly ill. My case started out as a two day jury trial. His abilities in jury selection got us the best jury we could have hoped for. Mr Barnett may look like a young inexperienced lawyer, but that expression don't judge a book by its cover holds true for Mr. Barnett. He is far from inexperienced and he might look like a young pup but in court he is like a pitbull. In the end, my two day trial turned into 5 days and the person suing me got less than one percent of what they were asking for. Needless to say to say I am very happy with Mr. Barnett and would use his services again, but hope I don't have to.

Mr Barnett was very competent and kept me informed throughout all my dealings with him. He handled everything in a timely manner with a positive outcome. I was quite impressed with his knowledge since he is a fairly new attorney. He took care of an out of state drivers license issue for me that another lawyer had for over a year, in less than 2 weeks. He also helped my step daughter with a very tough child custody case. Both cases were resolved to our great satisfication.
