Kept my son in professional school
My son was charged with two assaults resulting from drinking. Barry Diamond worked out both cases, helping my son get alcohol treatment and keeping him in professional school.

Lawyers can only do so much
I had Mr Diamond handle my workmans comp case keep in mind it's not going to make you rich workers comp is very difficult when you get hurt on the job' they are more for the employer then the injured worker' Mr diamond can only do so much he laid my case out to the judge and that's it the judge gives you what he wants trust me the lawyer would love to get you a million bucks it doesn't happen in a work injury' Mr diamond will get you what he can by law that simple he will make sure you get your weekly benefit s or he will call them and make it happen' but he knows what he is doing trust me the rest is up to the judge thank you Mr barry

perfect guy if he didn't know Neil Lewis
Great guy to have on your side overall. Its unfortunate that he had to work with that crook Neil Lewis though... I don't get how Mr. Barry didn't catch on, he's a very knowledgeable man!? I dunno... I will 100% use him again if needed and refer anyone who needs an attorney to Mr. Barry.
