4.5 stars 19 totalReview Patricia Barberis
Pat and her staff handled my divorce, and they were very thorough and helpful. She explained the process every step of the way, and offered advice when sought. I would highly recommend her.
I hired pat for over a year and 1/2, all she did was a temporary arrangement extremely over priced and dropped my case with out even finishing. I would never recommend her to anyone. This office is rude and not very experienced and find any excuse to drop your case after they have collected everything and refuses to give you an expiation of your case. WORSE LAWYER EVER

Pat Barberis is an exceptionally well-qualified, experienced, and talented attorney; moreover, she is prodigiously smart. Beyond that, she has strong principles, and is warm and approachable, qualities that do not negate how tough she can be when it comes to her cases. She has a lot of tools and tactics and subtle maneuvers, and it’s a tremendous thing to see her in action. She’s remarkably good at what she does. She kept me sane and on course during a very emotionally painful divorce, one the courts would designate as “high-conflict.” She always listened to my needs, while at the same time suggesting options I hadn’t considered. The end result was a generous settlement, much better than I anticipated and still within the realm of fair, fairness to my soon-to-be-ex an important factor for me. She is the consummate professional, and was respectful with the other side without giving ground. She was a staunch advocate, and her work shows how much she cares. She herself got back to me by phone or email on the same day every time I contacted her. Her staff was always available, discreet, professional, and friendly. Pat’s daughter, Colleen, also a lawyer, took a great interest in my well-being, though she herself had nothing to do with my case. Now that my divorce is finally complete, I can honestly say that I was in the best hands from start to finish, and the painful process was bearable because of Pat Barberis’ talent, intelligence, dedication, and deep empathy. She is a fine lawyer and an exceptional person. I recommend Pat Barberis and her staff highly.

You will not find a more caring and totally professional advocate. Her experience and expertise is unrivaled. As a former athletic coach, I know the importance of preparation and outstanding performance. You get both of these when Pat is handling your case. You also get the confidence that only years of experience can provide. From the moment of our first meeting I was absolutely sure that I was in very good hands. Her performance in litigation and mediation is nothing short of spectacular. I am so grateful that Pat Barberis was on my side at such a difficult time in my life.

I came to Colleen and Patricia Barberis, Attorneys at Law in November 2014 full of trepidation. I knew this was I came to Patricia Barberis, Attorneys at Law in November full of trepidation. I knew this was going to be a long and difficult road to navigate and I needed a team of professionals to help me through this. I had interviewed several attorneys beforehand and was becoming disheartened until my first interview with Colleen. Immediately impressed by her attentive and caring demeanor, I knew I had come to the right place. I was not disappointed.
Patricia took me through the process one step at a time, making sure that I understood everything that we reviewed. I sincerely appreciated that she was there for me at all times, even returning emails and text messages on the weekends. Her timely response to my questions eased my mind immediately without me having to wrestle with a mixture of doubts and emotions. Providing a client with peace of mind is a highly prized commodity in any lawyer and desperately needed for those going through this trying time.
Thanks to the team of Colleen and Patricia, this process moved along much quicker than what I expected and in a few short months, I will have my divorce. I would highly recommend Patricia and this law firm based on their professionalism, compassion and knowledge.
I would like to thank the entire staff of this law firm for their kindness, attentiveness and diligence. Truly stellar.

Pat has seen me through my divorce, as well as the three times my ex took me back to court to reduce support. Thanks to Pat's expertise, I came out on top every time. Pat is professional, ethical, knowledgeable and positive in her approach. At the same time, she is personable, friendly, and puts you at ease. I have recommended Pat to many friends and acquaintances; and all who have worked with her have been very pleased. I highly recommend Pat to anyone who is in need of legal representation.

I first heard of Patricia Barberis, esq, when a friend and I both agreed she should have had Mrs. Barberis as her attorney in her divorce. I should probably mention that I have referred over a dozen men and women to Pat in the 20 years I have known her.... and 100% of them have been extremely satisfied with her work.
When I was faced with getting a divorce, I chose Pat Barberis. I was concerned I might NEED a really good attorney. She proved to be just that. Proven expertise, level headed and non-reactive. Interested in a fair outcome in a timely manner. There was no acrimony in the proceedings.
I should mention, when my ex threatened a 2nd go-round several years later, Mrs. Barberis was able to convince his attorney (and the ex) that he would not benefit from that action, in very short order.
Patricia Barberis is a very competent, reassuring choice as attorney. I recommend her without reservation.

In my opinion/experience: Very disappointing representation. Extremely overpriced for a graduate of an unaccredited law school not even currently in existence. High overhead office with excessive staff producing work with many embarrassing errors, omissions, duplications and even misspellings in correspondence. Will drag things out as well as "drop the ball" when it counts. Will not own up to errors. Had to move on.

Through what I consider to be a on going, very messy, prolonged and difficult divorce, Patricia is there to guide, support, and even comfort me through the whole process. I personally feel that I receive the personal attention I couldn't have found with just any divorce attorney. The degree of professionalism and knowledge of the legal system she exhibits is astounding. We are in constant communication and I am informed almost immediately of things as they surface by her and/or her attentive staff.
p.s. I can always contact her by email and expect a response within a resonably short time frame .
