Being charged with a DUI/DWAI put me in one of the worst situations I have ever been in. It is extremely stressful. The system is set-up to make you feel as if you have no legal options, and are therefore simply screwed for being in this position. I am lucky enough to have found Barry Lancaster. Upon taking time out of his vacation to speak with me on the phone, I got a sense that Barry would work very hard to do what was right for me and my case. This foreshadowing could not have been more correct. Barry kept me informed of the different hearings, what would happen in them, and how that would relate to my case, as well as the fastest way to get my license back.
Barry is extremely smart, and when this is matched with his knowledge on the subject of DUI/DWAI, the outcome is providing the best chance for one to win a case. He takes a scientific approach that I personally really like. I would not have felt better with anyone sitting next to me in the courtroom. Barry ultimately helped me to be acquitted. If you want the best possible chance to win your case, hire this man.
Would like to thank Berry L...for his Frank and straightforward responses to my inquiries surrounding my issue with a 4 count citation I am burdened with brought on by an illegal stop of my vehicle and 4 trumped up charges, the intend only to line the pockets of Britton judicial system. Their avenues to replace budget cuts with illegal trumped up citations.
I hired Barry Lancaster as my attorney to protect me against a wrongfully filed restraining order from my ex-girlfriend. I was kicked out of my own house and I figured that I needed a lawyer since I obviously don't know the law (getting kicked out of the house that had my name listed on the loan documents seemed unlawful to me).
Barry prepared me for court by having me bring evidence that I wouldn't have thought to bring to court. Barry took command of the courtroom when he was representing me there. He proved to the judge that the restraining order was a farse.
When my mind was flooded with emotions of injustice Barry was able to provide clarity and direction.
Even after the restraining order issue was completed, Barry went above and beyond what I had paid him for by acting as a mediator between me and my girlfriend to figure out what to do with the house that my girlfriend and I had bought together.
In this society of men being guilty until proven innocent in these types of cases, I'm grateful to have had Barry represent me. I know that I wouldn't be able to represent myself as well as Barry represented me and I'm very grateful to have hired him for my lawyer. The restraining order would have stayed on my criminal record if the judge decided that the restraining order was justified. I highly recommend Barry to represent anybody who has had a restraining order filed against them.
Berry is a great lawyer and did everything he said he would do! Very lucky I found him! I went from having no hope at all and scared this charge would ruin my future but berry was confident and honest with me and walked me through the whole process and ended up getting my case dismissed! Without that I would be in a very bad spot and not able to fulfill my goals had this charge not been dropped! So yes I would recommend him to everyone he Is amazing!
I was arrested for a DUI last June and I was referred to Barry through a family member. Upon our first meeting Barry reassured me that everything would be alright and hopefully he would get my DUI charge dropped to reckless driving or less. He was very kind and made me comfortable talking about the arrest, etc.
The entire court and payment process was very smooth. Since being a recent college graduate he set me up with a payment plan that was suitable for me. My charges ended up being dropped to a temporary reckless driving charge for a year and I had to do 40 hours of community service, take a MADD class, and pay a small fee.
Through my experience with Barry I would absolutely refer him to anyone in my life, whether it be family or a friend. You're in good hands!
I contacted Mr. Lancaster at the recommendation of a friend and he did a wonderful job handling my case. He was very upfront and honest about his expectations, recommendations, and what options were relevant to my specific case. What I appreciated most was his knowledge surrounding the ever increasingly complicated DUI/DWAI laws, his patience with my constant questions, and his ability to answer every question promptly and keep me in the loop during the entire process. I was very overwhelmed at the beginning of the legal process and Mr. Lancaster did an excellent job easing the stress and anxiety of all of the pre-trial hearings, DMV hearing and DMV appeals. He worked very diligently and hard and as a result my case was plead down to a non-alcohol related offense, I can't thank him enough! I would not have wanted another lawyer, he does an excellent job and I would recommend him to anyone in the event they have an alcohol related driving citation.
Barry was found online by my sister who lives across the country. He was contacted on a Saturday afternoon and went to visit me in jail that same day. I had never met Barry, but he brought such comfort in this nightmare I was living in. From that point on Barry was very professional and guided me throughout the entire case. Barry made it a point to always return a phone call when I needed anything. He is very competent and knew exactly what we were going to do from the day we first met. He made a very hard time in my life much easier for me because of his honesty and intelligence. I am very grateful for Barry for getting my case dismissed!
I had a very positive experience working with Barry on an auto accident that I was involved in. He handled my case in a very professional and efficient manner. There's no question in my mind that I would come to him again if need be. Thank you Barry!
I never expected to be in the situation I was in, but Barry made me feel comfortable by handling everything, keeping me updated, and providing me with all the information I needed in order to make calculated and informed decisions. He was a great source of knowledge regarding most everything having to do with my situation, and he had no problem answering any questions I had. He fought as hard as he could to make sure I received a fair result. I felt that I was in good hands with Barry every step of the way.
I didn't believe there was such a thing as a trustworthy attorney, but I was proven wrong by my experience with Mr. Lancaster. He proved that he would work hard and care about my case. I would recommend him to anyone.
