Client Testimonial: Dear Brian (Barone Defense Firm Manager), When I spoke to you the night after my arrest, you gave me a lot reason for hope. Yesterday, at the arraignment, Mike had my charges reduced to careless driving. I want to thank you and Bridget and Patrick and especially Mike for everything. I feel like my life has been saved. The $6800 I spent to retain your firm is the best value I have ever gotten for my money. Thank you. D.R.
