    I have known Barbara for about 5 years and consider her, not only a peer and a colleague, but also a friend.Barbara is extraordinarily knowledgeable and competent in all areas of family law. Moreover, not only does she possess a high level of expertise in her field, but also her degree of attentiveness and responsiveness to her clients is a virtue often not found with other firms. Without reservation, I recommend and endorse Barbara E. Kristal.
