     After graduating from Valley Forge Military Academy, I was accepted at the University of Baltimore where I completed my Juris Doctorate in 1973. I was admitted to the Maryland State Bar in 1974, as well as the 8th Judicial Court Supreme Bench of Baltimore City, the Maryland Court of Appeals, the United States Federal and District Courts and the United States Supreme Court.   Since then, I have been a practicing trial attorney in Cecil County for over 40 years, successfully representing thousands of clients in automobile and truck accidents, criminal cases of all kinds, DUI and dwi, serious traffic offenses, and divorce and child custody cases.

Awesome Divorce Attorney
I hired Mr. Barnes to represent me in my divorce case. Because of Mr. Barnes' knowledge and experience my divorce actually went smoothly. Mr. Barnes worked with me through my separation agreement and divorce providing me with advice and clear expectations. Not only was Mr. Barnes a pleasure to work with, but so was his staff. I would recommend Mr. Barnes to anyone looking for representation in a Divorce case.

Trial Lawyer
I had a case in Cecil County Circuit Court for a Jury Trial in which I was represented by Mr. Harry Barnes. The charge was second degree assault in an incident where I had an altercation with a man in Perryville. I could not have been more pleased with the way this man handled the case and I was found not guilty. If you have a criminal case where you want awesome representation, then he is your man. He is thorough, professional, courteous, and knows his way around a courtroom as best as any I've ever seen.

I am 100% Satisfied
I was involved in a car accident and was injured. I wasn't sure what to do. Thankfully I reached out to Harry in March 2016 and he took care of everything! Him and his team did everything they could to make sure I was compensated! They kept me in the loop with everything and answered all of my questions, and most of the time Harry Himself reached out to me. I am very satisfied with the way my case was handled. I have his number on speed dial. He will forever handle all of my legal cases!

Harry Barnes
Harry is an amazing attorney. He got all of my husband's charges dropped. We have complete trust in him and am so thankful to have been given his name. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for defense attorney.

Oh, yes he did!
Harry has that southern gentlemanly way about him. He puts you at ease and he gets the job done. I was a first time DUI offender at 50 years old and he navigated me through the Cecil County Courts so that I did not lose my job and many other benefits. If you desire a lawyer with experience, Harry has it at 44 Years.

Absolutely Dominant!
I was issued a slew of charges when my vehicle struck a telephone pole. With my credentials and personal life in jeopardy, I disclosed my situation to a colleague and he didn't hesitate to point me in Harry Barnes direction. Following my first conversation with Harry I knew he was the man for the job. It wasn't long after he took the floor in the courtroom that the charges were dropped and I was on my way home. Harry represented me professionally and confidently, delivering a flawless and powerful defense. I would recommend Harry Barnes and his team to anyone under any circumstances! I can't say thank you enough to Harry, Matt, and Marilyn for their guidance and representation!

Traffic violation
Mr. Barnes and his associate were very professional throughout my case. My case lasted about six months his office was always there to support me and answer any questions. I was very pleased with his professionalism confidence and knowledge of the law. Each time that we met he would review my case from the start to the end to ensure we were on the same sheet of music.

Kimberlie Perez
We hired Mr. Barnes one year ago to represent our daughter who was arrested and charged with a serious felony offense. His representation was above excellent and He was able to relieve the stress that was placed on Kimberlie and our family from the very beginning. He accomplished everything that he told us he would and eventually convinced the state prosecutor and the courts to nol process her charges. He then went as far as getting the necessary papers filed to expunge her record of any involvement in the case. For this we are extremely grateful and highly recommend Mr. Barnes and his staff to any and all that require a first class attorney, Kimberlie can now get on with her life as the decent person that she is. We extend our thanks to Harry, Marilyn and Matt for their legal and personal services.

Divorce
I would consider Mr.Barnes the best choice for as a defense attorney in Cecil county. I am a divorced father of three girls that I love dearly. My greatest concern was equal cusody of my girls and that was easily achieved because of Mr.Barnes reputation alone. I was briefed about my rights and given options at every step of the process. I was treated with genuine concern by Mr.Barnes and his staff. I'm very satisfied with the outcome of a extreamly stressful divorce.

No fooling around
Harry picked up my case after another lawyer was unable to support what I wanted. He was awesome in a very short period of time to prepare for trial. I got exactly what I wanted in my custody case. He is no nonsense and goes for all he can get, no compromising with the opposing party.
