Barclay represented me in a divorce case. I would not recommend him to anybody. He overcharged me for the work that he did. I eventually severed all ties with him in the middle of my court proceedings. He did not seem familiar with family law so I'm not sure why he takes on such cases. I had another lawyer review his charges and were found to be gross overcharges. In this lawyer's opinion, I was gouged by Mr. Barclay. I'm not sure if he is any better in personal injury trials but I would not recommend him for anything related to family law. I would also review his billing practices as he clearly overcharged. Whatever legal actions lead to maximum profit he took. For instance, he drove 2.5 hours to file my petition when he could have just e-filed it for 10 dollars. He also inventoried my home for several hours and proceeded to charge me more than 2000 dollars for something an assistant or myself could have done for much cheaper. These are just a few examples. I would not recommend Mr. barclay to anyone.
Byron helped me recently with a delicate and complicated legal matter. He was extremely professional, intelligent and I valued his advice. I highly recommend him.
I am a contractor for medical testing. A company I worked for owed me for testing I had done over a period of several months - but refused to pay. I tried over and over to work it out with them but they still refused. Finally I told them I would have to take legal action, to which they replied fine, we'll see you in court. Their attorney sent me several legal documents including a demand for the small claims court judge to drop the case. I didn't know what to do. I was afraid I would lose several months of my income. A friend of mine referred me to Byron Barclay.
Mr. Barclay was a great relief. He took the stress of dealing with the lawsuit and their intimidation away from me. We moved the case out of small claims into the big arena, and I was no longer on the defensive. Mr. Barlcay continued to press them for information and to justify their refusal to pay, all the while keeping me apprised of the situation and asking how I would like to continue. In the end, the company settled the case out of court and I was able to recover my lost wages in full. For me, the stress relief and knowing I was able to recover the much need pay has been a great blessing. I would recommend Byron Barclay to anyone in need
Mr. Barclay represented me in a suit I brought against a service provider who deceived me and mistreated me. The suit was complicated because the "injury" spanned a fifteen year time horizon. Mr. Barclay was methodical in his preparation for depositions and trial. He thought "outside the box" which lead to a recovery which exceeded my expectations. I would definitely hire Byron Barclay again to represent me.
10's across the board would be my rating for Mr. Barclay.
Mr. Barclay was extremely professional. He never promised something to me that he couldnt/didnt deliver. He was able to help me through 2 personal injury cases that changed my life dramatically. He was able to help me find avenues to receive medical help, advice, diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, while the cases were being developed.
With Mr. Barclay's help I was able to get my life back on track.
Thank you, Byron.
