Not only is Ted Barr an amazing lawyer but he is an amazing individual. He is non judgemental and truly cares. This really shows in the way he represents you. He has helped me out in more ways than even he probably knows. Ted does his job and he does it extremely well! If you have reached one of those "rough patches" in life and need some help and guidance, Ted Barr is the individual to get you the best results possible out of a bad situation.

Rather than just sluffing me off by recommending deferred prosecution like many attorneys do in this situation, Ted took the time and effort to really look into my case and give it the due diligence it deserved. There are a lot of things that can happen between an arrest and a conviction, and Ted's expertise and preparedness put us in a position to take advantage. Because of that, my case was ultimately dismissed. I couldn't be happier.

Ted Barr is truly in a league of his own. From start to finish he was extremely professional, compassionate and honest. Worth every penny we paid and then some. Would totally recommend him if you are looking for an attorney that will have your best interest at heart and get the results you need. It was totally reassuring when we arrived in court the first day and everyone in the court room greeted Ted warmly and it was obvious that he had a good relationship with all of them. Very well respected and he truly knows his stuff!! Top notch experience!!!

Presents well, but doesn't deliver. POOR communications, would typically get phone calls the night before court appearances to ask me to make tough choices. Typically to file continuances which cost me money. This was brutal, made for sleepless night.
Emails went unanswered for days and sometimes weeks. I would have to pen angry emails to get a quick reply to any question.
Overall this was a terrible experience and complete waste of my money paid to this lawyer, who was clearly not in the game and spread too thin.

A DUI is one of the most stressful and defeating situations any person can face. The emotional and physical toll is indescribable. I cannot say enough about Ted C. Barr. Ted honestly raises the “bar” when it comes to customer service. He puts you and your needs at the forefront when dealing with such a trying time. When you are at your lowest, Ted’s knowledge, experience, and confidence will put you at ease. Just his demeanor and charisma alone will give you the peace of mind that you have the best of the best in Ted.
To make a long story short, I was in a very difficult situation where I had retained council and was left with three choices. The first option was to plead guilty to DUI, the second option was to defer the charge with no history of alcohol abuse, and the third was to go to trial with no gameplan or even confidence that the case could be won by my previous representation. To say the least, this is not what I expected when I sought out council.
I reached out to Ted as a second opinion, which in hindsight should have been my first. At this point, I had nothing to lose. He was kind enough to review my case and meet with me immediately. Ted was thorough and knew every detail of my case and quickly put a successful gameplan in motion based on the facts of my case.
This man is pure genius. He is extremely meticulous, knowledgeable, and well prepared. He navigates the courtroom like the seasoned professional he is, giving you all the confidence you need that you have the right representation at all times. Needless to say, this case was dismissed when previous counsel had all but thrown in the towel.

Ted C. Barr has my full endorsement.
His knowledge of law along with his impressive attention to detail and grasp of the facts were instrumental in my difficult case which ended in a ruling of deferral after a short period of probation to prove myself honest and reliable.
As a multi-business owner, husband, father of a terrific son and an active member of our volunteer community I never anticipated needing the services of a professional like Ted. But, when I did, Ted came through for me with expert advice and readily available personal care - never missing a beat. I consider him on my "A-List" of professional advisors. And, even better, he's a genuinely great guy who truely cares.
If you're in the position, as I was, of being accused of making a bad decision, make a great one and put your trust in Ted.

I will say, Ted Barr is the reason I have a future with my current employer!! His ability and knowledge of the system is the reason I had a positive outcome for my case. Let me tell you, for the first time getting in trouble they wanted to throw the book at me!!! This one major slip up almost cost me everything I worked my whole life for. Thank you, Ted for all your hard work!
I will refer Ted C Barr to anyone who has an unfortunate mistake that needs fixing!

I hired Ted for a DUI about 7 months ago which I was able to put behind me just this past couple of weeks. This was actually the second time he has represented me (the other being 7 years ago) and on both occasions he was worth every dime.
I could go on and on about his charisma in the court room and his proactive (and helpful) relationships with everyone involved in the DUI process, from the people working in the court system to the councilors in the treatment programs and the various other people you might encounter while going through a DUI case.
During my most recent experience, I heard dozens of horror stories from other people I met along the way about their lawyers and the awful experiences they had encountered including jail time, lengthy court imposed treatment, 2 year license suspensions, scram and alcohol monitoring bracelets, prolonged active probation, and a litany of frustration with attorneys who are difficult to get in touch with and have to be reminded by their own clients about pending legal issues. I experienced no such issues. Also, keep in mind that most of these people were on their first offense. This was my 2nd and I had it much easier by comparison.
I could easily fill a page describing Ted’s aptitude as a lawyer and abilities as a courtroom orator, but I would place the biggest value on his gift for making you feel at ease throughout the process. Going through a DUI is an extremely stressful situation and there is no monetary value I can put on what it meant to me and my family to have Ted taking on the larger portion of that stress. With Ted, I always felt confident that my case was being well handled allowing me to worry less about courts and judges and focus on the more important aspects of my life such as family and work.
From your first consultation with Ted (which is very comprehensive and immediately begins to set your mind at ease), to your final day in court, he is with you every step of they way. I was always kept abreast of any new court developments, informed on how the prosecuting attorney was viewing my case, and kept in the loop on Ted and his team’s investigation into the facts.
I truly believe Ted takes a very personal approach to what he does and he really made a genuine connection with me and my family. He understood and reminded me that I'm not a bad person and I just made a dumb mistake one evening. The bottom line is that I would recommend Ted to anyone facing a DUI. Thanks Ted.

Ted Barr recently represented me in a case in Kirkland WA. Prior to meeting with Ted for my initial consultation, I was unfamiliar with the process and very nervous. Ted explained how my case would proceed over the next 6 months. His approach was detailed and reassuring. He was successful winning my DOL case, despite a very high BAC and breath test refusal, which were two huge hurdles to overcome. In my DUI case with the city of Kirkland he did an excellent job negotiating with the city prosecutors to have my sentence reduced to Negligent Driving - 1. I was able to keep my license avoid SR22 insurance and an ignition interlock. He was able workout with the court that my DUI will be deferred in 2 years - amazing! Ted was highly professional and knowledgeable. His sense of humor was a great help in getting me through a very stressful situation. I would highly recommend anyone charged with a DUI to use Ted as their attorney. I can't imagine there is a better option available.

Ted may be slightly tardy to appts, but the wait is worth it. He is a true professional and what you see is what you get. He understands DUI law and has the experience to walk clients through the process with minimal stress (in a very stressful time). I would recommend him to anyone looking for a lawyer to assist in a DUI/DOL case.
