About Diego

Learn Diego’s areas of practice.

Since 2005, I have worked under various capacities in the legal field. Specifically, I worked for nine years at the Richmond County District Attorney’s Office and upon graduating from Seton Hall Law School in 2016, I assumed the position of Assistant District Attorney and was re-assigned to the Criminal Court Bureau where I prosecuted misdemeanor crimes and handled a caseload from inception to resolution.

Subsequently, I worked as a Litigation Associate at a commercial litigation law firm that handled contract disputes, corporate formations and dissolutions. 

Currently, I am employed as a Litigation Associate at a law firm that handles a wide array of employment and civil rights matters.

Honest Kind and Professional
Though my (lack of a) case was not something to be pursued, Mr. Barros spent some time on the phone with me, went over everything I've done, everything I can do, and suggested ways I can take power back from feeling victimized. Mr. Barros was understanding, kind, patient, and an utmost professional!!!!! I will absolutely contact his office again in the future if needed. Youd want this guy on your side!

Greatly thankful
Not fully understanding my situation, I was highly recommended to Mr Barros from a friend. When I finally gained nerve to call and speak to an attorney about an issue, I immediately felt comfortable with Mr. Barros and was more confident in explaining my situation. He was extremely polite and pleasant to speak to. Most of all he took the time to listen and explain my reason for calling in a different way that I had seen it. He is very knowledgeable, understanding and helpful.. I would highly recommend him and he will most definitely be my go to person if ever needed.. thanks again, William...

Diego Barros
Diego is a great lawyer, he keeps in contact with his clients and responds on time. He doesn’t give up on his clients or the case (especially when the defendant party is being difficult).If you or anybody needs a lawyer, I 100% recommend Diego Barros! He will get you the justice that you deserve.

Client
Mr. Barros is a phenomenal lawyer. He takes time to really understand the case and he cares about his clients. You can tell he has passion for every case that he has and he’s not just in it for the money, can’t say that about a lot of people these days.

Determined and committed lawyer!
Mr.Barros has been my attorney for almost 2 years now. He has fought many uphill battles in my name, and in the end came to be victorious. It was a long and grueling process but throughout Diego has never once stopped fighting. I ended up receiving more than I could’ve imagined for this case. If you want a lawyer that will fight tooth and nail for you, this is the person to see!! Hands down super professional and great at his job. If I ever needed to hire someone again I’d choose him a million times. He was extremely diligent and reliable in this matter. I was very happy to have chosen him to represent me and left more than satisfied.

Experienced lawyer!
Finally found an attorney that answered all my questions straight forward and based on the law. I consulted with attorney Oswaldo. He is very patient and thorough. He is easy to contact and responds quickly to calls. Although he isn’t able to represent me in my matter, he gave a good referral. I no longer have to go in circles. I’m very thankful to attorney Oswaldo!

Awesome lawyer
I hired Mr.Barros and he's exceptional attorney who fought every step of the way against my former employer and delivered on his word. I can't thank him enough for his representation and the closure he has provided to an old chapter of my life. Former Client, Miguel

I had two legal consultations with Diego relating to an injury sustained at work and  a mediation in a pending legal action.  For both consultations, Diego was highly knowledgeable on the law and diligent in explaining my options.   Diego was also sympathetic and easy to talk to.  I will continue to use his services and highly recommend him.

Not your average lawyer.
Joseph & Norisberg should be made an example for law firms nationwide. They allowed me to be involved in every aspect of my case from the first call to the final resolution. My case was assigned to Diego Barros who has great communication skills. He was always readily available and responded quickly to assist with any issues that had came up. Mr. Barros consistently performed at a high level of service throughout the duration of my case. In addition to the impeccable service Mr. Barros and his staff have have shown, Mr. Barros graciously addressed all of my questions and concerns and was very empathetic of my legal needs. During my first meeting with Mr. Barros he had stated that the firm of Joseph and Norisberg was not your average “botique law firm”. He was right, and we need more firms that hold themselves up to such a high standard as Joseph & Norisberg.

I consulted with three attorneys before speaking to Diego and the difference was blatant. Diego took the time to explain the law and to consider the defensive mindset of my employer. His advice was valuable and imperative in resolving my issues. I recommend Diego 100%

"I have known Diego Barros for a number of years. His practice focuses on labor and employment law, and has represented employers as well as employees, in various capacities. He’s also dabbled in some personal injury work, where he has achieved good results with equal measure. He is the consummate professional who is hardworking, diligent, knowledgeable of the law, while compassionate. During his free time, he donates his time to bettering his community through supporting charitable causes. I recommend him without reservation, because he’s the person I turn to first whenever I need legal counseling."
