I would have NEVER thought someone could be set up to be served divorce papers so swiftly as they did! But, with Attorney John Barrett and his AWESOME, THOROUGH, AND detailed, paralegal, Donna, my ex never saw what was coming! He was missed at the house by minutes, but then was served that same hour at his job, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Mr. Barrett. I have to say meeting Mr. Barrett was simply by chance as he works with some other very powerful attorneys as Mr. John Pugh, who ended up introducing myself and Mr. Barrett because Mr. Pugh didn't handle divorce, only John did. I was delighted because he handled my case without hesitation, as well as Donna and was able to secure my 401K without my ex getting a dime because of adultery! I'll tell you, he and Donna leave NO STONES UNTURNED!!! I loved the comfort, concern, thoroughness, and accuracy of his office. As well, I not only was able to secure my 401K, get a divorce, but also close on my house within the same few months as everything was going on around me, now that's what I call: A DREAM TEAM YOU CAN COUNT ON! I don't know how Donna does it with young children and a life of her own, but she made my case feel like it was PRIORITY at all times, and never failed to get things submitted into the court in timely fashions! I really and truly think she GOT NO REST during my case, nor John, for that matter, and that means a great deal to me and my children! I have to say once John got my Ex's attention, it turned out not to be a BITTER DIVORCE AT ALL, and I Thank God for that, because I honestly could rest at night, peacefully, and focus on buying my home. Which by the way has a "catchy name" : My new address name is: "NEW HAVEN", and indeed it is, thanks to the expertise of Barrett, Canale, Leslie and Pugh!

John Barrett and his paralegal assistant, Donna Albert epitomize true Christian ethic. People may make derisive lawyer jokes concerning, especially, legal matters in family cases (divorce, separations and other family matters). The jokes insinuate attorneys and their assistants are vampires without moral code. I will NEVER laugh at these kind of jokes. Reality is: this world often needs the counsel, legal and otherwise, of professionals who understand the various difficult and even dangerous situations which some families must face. Mr. Barrett and Ms. Albert LISTEN. They also thoroughly explain a case's process. They are attentive and astute, forthcoming and caring concerning legal, monetary, relational and personal details of a case. Should you ever need legal counsel, you will be in very GOOD hands here. I truly thank God for John Barrett and Donna Albert. I pray they continue to bless many with their excellent abilities and kindnesses.

I understand what an uncontested IS, what I did not realize is that I would get NO legal guidance what so ever from the attorney I hired to do my "uncontested" divorce. The divorce agreement that John Barrett and Donna Albert presented to me has been a nightmare, full of ambiguity and uncertainty. When I called Donna to discuss the best way to address my DA, she told me not to ever call the office again and disconnected our phone call.

John is one of the smartest lawyers I know. He is diligent and will work hard to find a solution set for even the most complex issue. His professionalism, model, and sense of humor make working on the other side as pleasant as possible.
