    • I recommend Barbara Sylvester.
    • I hired Barbara 6-12 months ago.
    • Barbara handled my Child Support matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    Barbara Joe is a superior trial lawyer who has mastered her discipline. I have used her twice in two equally as difficult of cases with excellent outcomes. She conducts her business in the most professional manner like no other. In Pierce County, all trial lawyers know her and respect her.

    • I do not recommend Barbara Sylvester.
    • I hired Barbara 1-3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Child Custody matter.

    My case was mishandled due to Barbara Jo's awful demeanor in court with opposing counsel and the Judge. To be specific, Judge Arend. I heard that she was a "go-getter", but she overcharged me, rarely, if ever, returned emails/phone calls, and her aggressive style in court was repeatedly rude and unsuccessful. This was on a custody case in 2010-2011 and I would never use her again.

    • I do not recommend Barbara Sylvester.
    • I hired Barbara more than 3 years ago.
    • Barbara handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I had a bad experience with Mrs. Sylvester and her law office. I called her office several times and never could get a hold of her. She has too many clients and I did not feel like she had time to devote herself to my case. Because of that, I do not recommend her to anyone.

    This attorney handled a divorce case for me and I was not happy with the service I recieved. Phone calls and emails were not returned. I would not recommend you use her or the firm she works for.
