Very professional and just a honest brillant man
I lived in america from 2003-2009 I have returned home to ireland and remain here since those dates for family reasons. Barry came highly recommended I had a very important lose end to tie up which barry did it very efficiently and professionally. As you can imagine doing this from another country is an absolute nightmare but barry was there no matter the time of the day and out of work hours I am so grateful to barry as this was an ongoing situation for a while. Barry had all my correct information back within a few days and I was able to move forward with my life. I can only say fantastic things about this man and I would highly recommend him and his expertise in this field anytime no matter how complicated the issue was. Thanks again Barry .

Amazing Experience
Working with Barry and his paralegal Sue was a dream in a horrible situation. I met with Barry immediately following leaving my ex wife, and he took my case, compiled, and completed the separation agreement the same day. I was in a situation that became very contentious, and Barry and Sue helped me navigate it with grace. They were consistently available, gave me good advice, answered all of my (very many) questions, and helped me maintain distance from my ex. They were endlessly professional, compassionate, and willing to go the extra mile to make things work for me. Additionally, Barry was able to help me keep the divorce as amicable and affordable as possible, streamlined the process successfully, and got me in and out of court efficiently despite the complications that arose secondary to my ex becoming contentious. I cannot begin to recommend Barry enough.

I used Barry in the dot.com era and he was awesome
The person I married was not the girl I dated. I asked around to those fancy Ivy league lawyers and most said things like "You never know how a judge, jury... is going to..." Not Barry right off the bat he knew what to do and how to win the case, and he did. I walked out of Cambridge court with her paying me... yes you just read that. Barry is very honest affordable and most of effective. The Best.

Excellence in character and production
Barry and his paralegal the amazing Sue have made lemonade from lemons. My divorce is final, my finances have been sorted and I now have control of my life! Barry and Sue have been consistent in their support and availability meeting me at times not traditional for the 9-5 employee. I cannot say enough positive things about the amazing team of Barry and Sue!

Divorce Final!
My divorce is final. I have gone back to my maiden name. I have my life back. I hired Barry based upon his years of experience and it paid off. His instincts are spot on. This was a complicated matter that could have gone much worse. The response time from Sue was unmatched by any professional I have ever hired. Every time I had a crisis, she was there. Billing was very fair. I am so thankful for Barry and Sue.

Thank you Barry
I'm so glad that I hired Barry. After my first consultation I could tell right away that Barry was the right attorney for me. He's is extremely honest and personable, flexible, and seems to know everything there is to know about his line of work. Attorney Lewis is great at what he does and his office, including his wife Susan, is incredibly sensitive and empathetic. These are good people who will truly do everything in their power to helo you get what you deserve out of your divorce, and to make the whole process less difficult gift you. Thank you Susan and Barry!

Very Competent and Experienced!
I was very stressed and met with several attorneys when I needed to divorce my Husband. Barry wasn't necessarily the most polished, but he was the most knowledgeable and easy to talk to!. I went with my gut and I was really happy. He can answer any question you have about the process, the law and what is likely to happen any step of the way. He is very busy, but his assistant Sue is really smart and helpful too and they are very responsive to emails and phone calls.

Very Experienced and Caring!
Barry was able to really help me with my complex case involving custody and property division. He knew all about the judge assigned to the case and gave me really good advice as to what I should do and what would probably happen. He blew away the other attorney with his in-depth knowledge of every little detail and possible ways to close our differences in the separtion agreement and this saved me a ton of money!

A professional who listens and cares
I had been going through a divorce for almost 2 years, the case had delays and I was so tired and frustrated, that I fired my attorney. Someone recommended I call Barry, they had wonderful results. He listed to my concerns and knew the other lawyer and the judge. He specializes in divorce, and really had great insight into the legal system. He offered a realistic approach, suggested we obtain a GAL to help me obtain custody of my children. He quickly moved on the case, and for the first time I felt there was hope. Within 6 months, my case was settled. Barry and his team were so caring, they know that family is everything. An honest attorney who you can trust, no games, just experience and professionalism. I owe him so much.

Forced my Husband to Settle
After I had hired and let go of two previous lawyers, Attorney Lewis was fully prepared to take my case to trial and had the goods on my Husband. After my Husband saw the exhibits that Attorney Lewis was prepared to introduce, I got a far better deal than I had ever dreamed of!

Experienced lawyer who knows divorce!
My divorce was turning ugly, and I knew I needed to change lawyers. Barry Lewis was recommended by a friend and from my first meeting I knew he would ensure my interests were met. He explained how the court time would work, reviewed my options for visitation and support. He was able to get temporary orders for child support very quickly. His staff was very supportive. Emails and phone calls were answered promptly and he held meetings during evening hours and weekends, so I could manage this process while working full time. Once Attorney Lewis took over my case, things began moving quickly and my final settlement was more than I had anticipated, thanks to his experience in divorce. I am so grateful that I found an attorney that specializes in divorce. Hiring him made all the difference to my life.

So thankful I hired Attorney Lewis
Attorney Lewis and his staff are professional, considerate, and caring. In my situation they spent a good deal time of time explaining the process, assisting me through each step, and providing emotional support. If it wasn't for their expertise in divorce I don't know if I would have gotten the visitation I needed with my children. I can't speak highly enough of Mr. Lewis, and I would recommend his firm to anyone going through a difficult divorce.

He really went out of the way for me
Attorney Lewis or Barry as he likes to be called and his assistant Shannon really went out of the way he help me with my case when I couldn't find anybody else to take it. He visited me several times at my home and elsewhere and he got me a substantial property settlement when I though I was completely out of look. His office is always very responsive and has done a fantastic job of addressing the smaller details involved in my case!

Experienced , Reliable & Honest
When I met him him, it was obvious that he knew a lot more about divorce law law than the other 5 lawyers that I interviewed. My case had a lot of complicated issues involving child custody, removal, support and property division. Since they specialize in divorce law, his staff was also really knowledgeable and handled a lot of things for me saving me money. He was able to explain everything in detail and the strategy that he developed for me was really effective. I would definitely highly recommend him and his office!

My review of Atty Barry R. Lewis
Atty Barry R. Lewis is very professional, ethical and thorough. With nearly two decades experience, he knows both the law and the courts. He asked pertinent questions, paid attention to details, and guided me through my case with skill and sensitivity.

Knows what hes doing!
After 23 years of marriage, 3 children, extensive real estate holdings and an angry wife, I knew my divorce wasn't going to be easy. Barry kept me calm and focused, answered all my questions with skill, was able to accurately predict how the court would handle the difficult issues (inherited property and a lazy wife) and worked hard to get me a very good outcome! I highly recommend him. He's really busy (lots of clients I think) and his staff is excellent too!

The Best! Knowledgable, Smart, Kind and Passionate about his work!
The Best! Attorney Lewis is smart, knowledgable about the court system and gets the job done! He has a great court manner(demeanor) that does well in the court system. He handled my divorce excellently as well as a few others that I recommended to him. I know they also were very satisfied with his abilities as a lawyer. He truly cares about his clients and getting a positive outcome. He is fair and easy to talk to. You can call him anytime and he will offer support and peace of mind.

I will always and will continually recommend him as one of the best!
