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.

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

Excellent
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.

Knowledgeable Employment Attorney
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%

So thankful to have had Diego represent me. He was very professional and always took the time to walk me through the process ahead of time. He came very well organized and prepared to settle my case which took a lot of stress off of me during a very stressful time in my life. Excellent attorney!

Lawyer Barros is a great lawyer. He was able to win the case for my friend and was also able to contact me diligently to see if he could have my support on the case. I recommend using this lawyer.

Great lawyer!
Diego Barros was a ray of hope for me and my co-worker when we were unfairly fired from our jobs. We thought we had no solution to the problem we were facing. However, Mr. Barros proved to us that the chances of a resolution were indeed high. Not only was he able to defend us vigorously against an unfair accusation, but his empathy and hard work offered emotional relief to both me and my co-worker. Mr. Barros went above and beyond to guarantee that we receive the compensation that we deserved. I will be forever grateful for the outstanding and tireless service received from him. I recommend Diego Barros to anyone facing any employment-related matter.

A Pleasure to Work With
For starters, Diego is an absolute great person and I knew from the very first moment I met him that he was going to be great for my case. Diego is not only a tremendous lawyer, but he is also compassionate and understanding. During the duration of my case, Diego has been able to reassure me time and time again that he believed me and that we were not going to go down without a fight. Diego you were the sun behind my wing and I will be forever grateful to have had the pleasure of working with you. I also wanted to say that I appreciate Diego’s communication with me throughout the entire progress of my case. Diego, you’re awesome!

Relationship: Friend
"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."
