A TRUE SUPER LAWYER!!!!
I have been a client of Mr. Covert on a couple occasions and would like to share my experiences with people searching for a true super lawyer. I hired Barry based on a google search for a top rated lawyer. What i recieved from him was above all that i had ever expected. I have used 4 to 5 lawyers in my lifetime and none can compare to Barry. He is not the lawyer that collects your money and makes a plea bargain to settle your case. Barry fought my cases tooth and nail and exhausted every avenue in the legal relm. He did not take pleas and pushed for everything he believed in. My case had a better outcome than i believe 99% of attorneys would have been able to achieve. Barry is the best and i highly recommend him to anybody searching for a true super lawyer. There is no price you can put on your freedom and if you treasure that as much as i do hire Barry.
