Fought Hard For Me & Will For You!
In February of 2014, Attorney Barron was the only attorney who would even think about taking on my wrongful termination case & not only did he take it on, but he fought harder than I could ever hope for legal council to fight for me & what was right. I would recommend Attorney Barron to anyone with any sort of Employment or Labor Law legal needs.

Professional and personal
Recently Attorney Barron represented me in an employment discrimination case against my employer. I was very satisfied on how he handled the case and the outcome. Attorney Barron was very detailed and always looked out for my welfare during the course of the law suit. Although he was always professional, he treated us like we were family. I would highly recommend Attorney Barron for any legal matters that you may encounter, because you will get an attorney that cares about you and your welfare.

Hire this lawyer! NOW!!
Attorney Barron has been representing me in a complex employment matter (involving a number of discrimination incidents, ADA violations, FMLA violations, civil rights violations, wrongful termination, retaliation, and other issues) regarding my previous (government agency) employer since 2013. Although my case still hasn't reached a resolution yet (due to court holding things up...NOT my awesome attorney!), I am confident that Attorney Barron`s extensive professional knowledge, impressive skills and talents, hard work ethic and genuine dedication will result in a successful outcome! I'm certain you too will be as confident with this attorney! Personally, what I especially appreciate and respect about Attorney Barron most of all is the genuine kindness, concern, respect, compassion, and dedication he always shows me, and every one of his other clients! For highly competent representation with personal service a larger firm could never begin to match, Attorney Barron is THE lawyer to have on your side!!!

In January 2016, I needed representation in an employment issue and my association (APTA) recommended Attorney Barron. He performed magnificently! As a client, I found Attorney Barron to be compassionate, personable & a great listener. However, my opposition discovered that he was brilliantly fierce and fiercely brilliant! Attorney Barron resolved my employment issue without repercussions which is exactly what I wanted!

Attorney Barron Fights for the Underdog
When it comes to injustice in the workplace, it's not so easy to prove, let alone beat big business at their game. George took my case and believed in me when other lawyers thought it might be a lost cause. Not only is he a compassionate lawyer, but he is smart and skilled at uncovering the facts and presenting his argument. No matter how many questions I had, George took the time to explain each component of the process; and he stood behind me every step of the way. If you're looking for an attorney who will fight long and hard to win your case, but in a fair and honest manner, it's Atty. Barron. He genuinely cares about what's right.

A trustworthy and knowledgeable lawyer.
Mr. Barron was of great assistance to my fiance and I. He knew we were between a rock and a hard place and gave every ounce of knowledge he had in his brain and helped us to go pro se to get the best result for our case. The best spent money I ever had to dish out. If I had to do this all over again or even had more funds to take Mr. Barron as my counsel full time - I wouldn't even hesitate to do so. Recommend you 100%! You listened and even assisted when no one else wanted to look at our case. Thank you! :-)

Very Satisfied!
I needed an immigration lawyer to obtain an official citizenship certificate for my daughter who was adopted from China. George was wonderful, knowledgeable, and always kept me informed. He also answered my phone calls promptly. I received my daughter's certificate recently--entire process took only 4 months. Very pleased with Attorney Barron!

Trustworthy and Effecient Lawyer
If anyone is going through the immigration process and is even debating on whether or not to get a lawyer, George Barron is your answer. The paperwork can be over-whelming and the deadlines are numerous and non-forgiving. Mr. Barron took any stresses we had and put them to rest. The whole process was taken care of from beginning to end in an extremely friendly and professional manner. The fee was minimal when compared to the amount of work that was done, not to mention the peace of mind that it was being done correctly.

His attention to detail, the task of teaching us, walking us through each step and his knowledge of the Law was/is impeccable. I highly recommend Atty. Barron to others and I know for my Wife and myself, he is our Legal Adviser and Counselor, our Attorney!!
