Highly Recommended!
I highly recommend Mr. Barry. Not only was he very professional and knowledgeable, he was extremely kind and helped to ease the stress that my family and I were going through. He took time to listen to all concerns and clearly communicated step by step in a way that was easy for us to digest. We are very grateful and can’t thank him enough for his service.

Amazing Attorney for criminal defense
I would recommend David to anyone who is looking for a competent attorney who is knowledgeable and has a eye for details. He got my case dismissed. It was a miracle. His eye for details and timeliness found the mistake in the evidence against me and at the right time used it against the prosecutor. Great job.

Review for Mr. Barry
I was arrested due to a false allegation. Due to that false report, I experienced issues with work. Mr. Barry took the time to explain my rights. He also supported me by reassuring me constantly. I was unsure about my future and did not understand my situation. Mr. Barry provided a clear clarification of what my disposition paper meant. When I feel unsure or worried about my job or future job opportunities, I know I can contact Mr. Barry for reassurance and support. He is a dedicated lawyer who is a professional. He also provided me with resources to help support my case. (posting this review anonymously due to personal reasons)

I am extremely impressed with the service, attention and detailed work that David Barry put into my case. Not only did he keep me abreast as to what was going on but was honest and helpful with his information. Thankfully, Collins, Gann, McCloskey, & Barry were able to get my case dismissed. I could not have asked for better representation.

Got the job done!
I had received a traffic ticket and was a wreck knowing that I would lose points and my insurance would go through the roof. David put my mind at ease with his professionalism and confidence stating he would reduce my ticket. Sure enough he came through and saved me big time. He was pleasant to work with and was able to articulate all the details of the case and what was possible. I definitely recommend David if you want results.

Fighter to the end.
I had a situation. Where I was a victim of a Nigerian scam. I got arrested for it though. Dave saw that I was a victim. Never gave up on me. Never agree to any of the DA deal unless it was right, It took over a year and half. The outcome came on our side.
