Mr. Barrows is a phenomenal attorney! I was referred to him by a friend that he represented in a family court case. She was very pleased with the successful outcome, his knowledge, professionalism and attention to detail. I retained him at the tail end of my divorce case and truly wished that he had been representing me from the beginning. My case would not have taken over 3 years to be settled, wouldn't have cost so much in legal fees and would have ended in my favor. He is still representing me in the ongoing child support case.
Mr. Barrows has a dynamic drive, energy and enthusiasm that gives me the upmost trust and confidence in his razor-sharp skills and ability to fight for me on my behalf. He is an extremely dedicated and honest attorney that I would recommend to anyone. His rates are more than fair, but what's more important is his character and integrity! I'm very fortunate to have him as my lawyer!

Attorney Barrows is truly one of a kind. I don't usually write reviews but I had to express my sincerest thanks to a truly exceptional attorney. Mr. Barrows helped me through an extremely difficult divorce with grace and ease. He was warm and understanding and kept me sane throughout one of the toughest times in my life. I am truly grateful to have found Mr. Barrows through a referral from a friend of mine and would recommend him to anyone facing marital difficulties.

Mike Barrows handled a few matters for me and I can say he was the best attorney I have had. Most attorneys I have dealt with in the past would be ill prepared and didn't really take a true interest in my cases, but Mike really cared and took things personally as if I was family. He was extremely easy to speak to, well versed in all areas of the law and always made himself available to me no matter what was going on. Do yourself a favor and hire Mr. Barrows as your attorney and you will not be disappointed.
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I run a storefront law practice in Manhattan and continually refer cases to outside counsel. Michael is one of the few lawyers I can rely on to find time in his schedule to meet me in my office and meet with my client on short notice. Every client has been effusive in their praise of his work and his demeanor. I highly recommend Michael for all divorce cases.
