My son was facing potentially serious alcohol and drug charges. Through Steve's work and relationships with the DA's office, he was able to help reduce the charges that resulted in a fine with no probation.
My son was facing a class 4 felony with 4-16 years in prison and 3 misdemeanors. Steven Barnes worked with the DA's to get the felony dropped and the charge was 1 misdemeanor with supervised probation for 1 year with an alcohol evaluation. Thankful
Mr. Barnes was not only very knowledgeable of the law, but he was genuinely interested in the facts and truth of my case. It is frightening to know how easily an allegation of criminal wrongdoing can be made, and that is especially true regarding allegations of a sexual nature. Mr. Barnes listened to the facts of my case with an objective mind and upon accepting my case, he kept me informed every step of the way during my 2+ year legal nightmare. Mr.Barnes was truly compassionate and worked tirelessly to prove my innocense. He never pressured me to accept plea bargains even though it would have made his life easier and avoided the toll it would surely take on me and my family. When I had questions, Mr. Barnes never made me feel like a bother and he always responded to my calls in a timely manner. Mr.Barnes is a man of integrity and I have no doubt that he represented me wholeheartedly. He believed in my innocense, he fully realized the gravity of the allegations against me and that he held my life in his hands. I hope to God I never need an attorney ever again, but if I did, I would have no reservations in hiring Mr. Barnes to represent me. With all sincerity, thank you very much...
