Joe was a tremendous resource during my divorce. He listened intently during our initial consultation, and ultimately understood how to work WITH me. Throughout the process he was interested in how I wanted to handle and approach each step. He didn't hesitate to recommend alternate approaches to reach my end goals, but never overstepped. He understood that I was the one who had to live with the result.
Joe's legal knowledge and guidance was always spot on. He helped me fully understand the difference between my "wants" and what the law would allow. No Surprises. That was critical to managing my expectations, and helped me to better prepare for the next stage of my life.
Joe was GREAT at helping me manage the financial side of the process. He explained his costs and the billing process. No unnecessary phone calls, no unnecessary meetings. We spoke when we needed to, period. In the end, costs for the process were about 1/3 of my ex-wife's. Not because his rates were cheaper, but because he and I managed the process better.
I would recommend Joe to anyone who, God forbid, needs to go through this process.

Attorney Barnes worked for me on a quite complicated and contested divorced case. I contacted Attorney Barnes when I was in a desperate situation from my divorce case. From the start , I felt that Attorney Barnes was there to look out for the best interests for me and my child. He cared about my particular needs and keep working on those frustrating issues. His help definitely changed the life for me and my child. Attorney Barnes is very knowledge of different fields of laws and I have benefited tremendously from his generously sharing. I strongly recommend this lawyer.

Attorney Barnes is a well respected attorney. He is to be commended for dedicating himself to helping others by taking his valuable time to assist those who may not be in a position to help themselves by providing sound counsel on public forums such as AVVO. His dedication to the profession of law is apparent as is his compassion for those in need of legal services. His responses are clear, very helpful and quite on point. Bravo!!
