Barry was recommended to me by a friend that had used him for his divorce; I have since thanked that friend for his advice. Barry represented my interests in my divorce, my action against my ex-wife when she violated the divorce decree by defaulting on the mortgage(which got me a substantial judgement in my favor), and a successful case against my second wife's ex-husband when he violated the terms of their divorce decree. In all 3 cases he was calm, cool, collected, and very knowledgeable at a time when I was often none of these. I found that he had both a willingness to fight for what we thought was right coupled with a well-informed pragmatism about what was likely to work if we needed to go to court. I would not hesitate in the slightest to use him again and have recommended him to friends that needed legal help in their divorces.
Barry took on my case after a good sales job at a time I was in a huge bind. I was assured by him my good standing but when arbitration came about he did not fight for me but simply kept recommending we accepted a parenting plan that has caused me pain ever since. Either he is incompetent or did care for anything else than billing against the huge amount of cash I had deposited with him in good faith. Since then I have attempted to approach him twice in my needs and he has simply washed his hands, even citing that I am threatening, and warning me that he is done w my case, sending cease letters with threats of legal actions and police. He will not have a conversation. I cannot warn people in contested cases more against him.
I found Barry when on this website during my hunt for an attorney to help with a prenuptial agreement. I emailed him and he got back to me with a phone call in less than an hour. After our first call I could tell right away he was the man for the job.
Barry truly cares about you and makes sure you're getting the best representation possible. I had a lot of questions and he wasn't one to nickel and dime for each one. He is very effective with his time and is readily available -- which was very key with my situation.
I am completely confident in what he accomplished for me and can now rest easy. I'll continue to use him if any other matters around the topic should arise.
If you're looking for a lawyer that will really have your back, give Barry a shout.
I found Barry a couple of years ago as I needed to work through an interstate divorce and parenting plan. I found Barry to be a very personable attorney, extremely knowledgeable regarding my situation and options, and an excellent resource for reading the opposing party and their options. Barry gave me a lot of comfort with his wise counsel throughout the course of my very contentious process; my spouse went through three attorneys because Barry was so formidable that she could not get everything she wanted. This is a testament to Barry's capabilities and fortitude for a longer, drawn-out process. He thought deeply about my case, gave me sound and practical advice, kept me grounded, and always had an excellent plan to keep the case moving forward every step of the way. I'd recommend him to anyone who is going through divorce or family law proceeding.
Barry is fantastic! I was in a difficult, scary situation - being threatened in multiple ways by my boyfriend's ex - but Barry made me feel safe, and represented me incredibly well. He's articulate, kind, and really got to know me and my situation personally. All legal issues were resolved in my favor, and I would happily refer him to anyone who needs help with a family law issue. He's simply wonderful, as a person and as a lawyer.
