Traffic ticket
I was in the state of New York for work and received a traffic ticket during my stay. I was referred to Attorney Barry Janay, and he reviewed my case, informed me of everything I needed to do on my end, he stayed in communication with me the entire time of handling the case, and successfully won a not guilty verdict. I would definitely recommend Attorney Barry Janay for your legal needs!

Attorney Janay helped me fighting with Apple Inc successfully
Attorney Janay had done a great work help me make a strategy and draft a demand letter against Apple Inc for a iPhone which is out of the service date. The iPhone 5 I used for two years had problem in the wake/sleep button and with issue in battery life. I have contacted Apple Inc for repairing, but got rejected since it is out of the service/warranty. Attorney Janay wrote a demand letter and requested the repairing with good reasoning. After a few weeks, I got a new iPhone 5 from Apple Inc. Thanks a lot for Mr Janay's help.

Excellent Lawyer
I feel fantastic about my experience. I was an emotional wreck when I first contacted Barry and his team survived all my emotional distress and helped me correct an extremely complicated will dispute. I think that any other lawyer would have told me that they couldn’t help me. Barry and Angelina and the rest of Barry’s team fought hard, against two people who lied, withheld facts, refused to cooperate, and even refused to communicate. Barry overturned a Will, which is extremely difficult to do. My two young children, in elementary school, will be able to have a better current situation and future situation because of Barry and Angelina and Barry’s team. Nothing could mean more to me than that. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Barry, Angelina, and everyone else on Barry’s legal team. Sincerely, Larry Schmidt

Last Shot on the clock !
I want to thanks Barry and his staff for handling something for me that it was said that it couldn’t be done. They helped me with an issue no one else wanted to do. My father passed and left a will but his will wasn’t filed until years later and under New York law you have only a certain time to contest. And to make matters worse this was the last year to get it done. But luckily I was consulted and given hope by the staff of Barry and Janay to pursue it. And I’m glad I did because we found out I was eligible to contest and win my case thanks again Barry you are the best and will use you for future issue if any.

Traffic Violation - Great Job!
Barry did a great job for us on a recent traffic violation case. He is very efficient and kept us well-informed. He did a great job explaining the issues relevant to the case, and even provided links to other cases to explain further. We were very happy with the results.

Barry and I worked together on a recent contractual issue. I was very pleased with his attention to detail and the responsiveness with which he works. I would highly recommend his services to those in need of professional and timely assistance.

Great job!
My experience with Barry was very short, as my problem was resolved, but in the short time I had with Barry he did a good job in helping me resolve my mortgage problem. Would recommend Barry for sure.

Excellent Lawyer, Barry Janay
Barry Janay was referred to me through a colleague, but I was taking a chance hiring him to defend my case. Barry spelled out step-by-step what our course of action should be, advising me of realistic costs and expectations. Sure enough, he was able to bring swift and satisfactory results, well within the estimated budget. I work with lawyers throughout the world, in my line of work. I'm experienced enough to know when I come across strong, keen and well-managed legal representation. I will absolutely recommend as well as work with Barry Janay in the future.

Consumer Attorney Services
Barry helped me in a consumer issue related to a car dealership. He was able to explain the situation to the parts involved and get to an agreement without filing a lawsuit. He kept me informed during the negotiation process.

The work Barry did for me was outstanding
The work Barry did for me was outstanding, and [hopefully] continues to be. Barry and I initially got off to a bit of a rocky start, but neither of us was entirely to blame. And in the end, I believe the work he did for me was of the highest possible quality. He may have bitten off a bit more than he thought when he took me on as a client, I had to agree to be a bit more patient than I would have preferred. I do admire Barry for honoring his word when it came to pricing and his commitment to our project, even though we had to renegotiate terms a time or two during the process. When all is said and done you judge attorneys by the quality of work they do, not by other, arguably less important factors.”

Meticulous and responsive
Barry is shockingly responsive. I brought my legal matter to him, at which time he told me to draft an e-mail outlining the details of the matter. I sent him the e-mail, and not only did he make edit suggestions to my letter, but he drafted a letter of complaint to the accused on his letterhead. It took him about 8 hours to turn the entire process around. Without me asking, he made a phone call on my behalf to explain my case to a third party, who had taken me to a collection agency over the matter. I have rarely someone deliver quality results in such a short time, but in this case, I can happily say that Barry delivered above my expectations.

legal advice on Wire transfer gone wrong
After using AVVO to get legal advice for my case, Frank Natoli responded to my request and I immediately contacted him as he refer me to Adam Steiner and Barry E Janay. They informed me of my rights and instruction in how to proceed with my case in which Barry has mentioned that he was confident about my case. Not far from the submitting the letter, my request was fullfill. I will not hesitate in asking Barry for any other legal advice in the future....

When I asked Mr. Janay to write a demand letter for the unjust withholding of a security deposit, he wrote the two page letter with exhibits in just one day.
Posted by Zain D. | May 5, 2013
Highly recommended.
Barry's service was consistently sharp, informative and helpful. His prices were very reasonable and he was accessible and forthcoming even after the fees were paid. He'll be our go-to legal guy moving forward.
