Posted by Rhonda
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 Barrett and Donna Albert, his Paralegal, were wonderful to work with during my Daddy's Estate settlement. John was very patient to explain the legal process, guided me through each phase, and advised me, as the Executor, to carry out my Daddy's wishes.
John and Donna make a great team helping people like me navigate through what could be a difficult, emotional, and stressful experience.

John is a great guy, straight forward, and to the point. He didn't promise anything, explaining both the pros and cons in my civil case process. I will not only continue to use his services should the need arise, I would recommend him to anyone needing representation.

I hired John Barrett and Donna Albert on a friend's suggestion. All issues were forecast by them before they occurred and eventually resolved. There were no hidden fees and the divorce proceedings went as smoothly as possible.

John Barrett and Donna Albert did exactly what I hired them to do. How do you beat that? Good communication from start to finish, no surprises, no hidden fees, and extremely professional. I highly recommend.

John Barrett guided us through a very difficult time. He was very professional and understanding of our situation. He was always there to answer any questions and guided us through the entire process. Would highly recommend John Barrett for your attorney.

Divorce is never an easy thing as many of you may know, even if it is exactly what is needed in some situations. I was in one of those situations and let me tell you, the last thing you need at that time is a law firm wasting a lot of your time and money. That happened to me not only once, but twice over a six month period.
I was fortunate enough to have a friend of mine recommend John Barrett and his team to me concerning my divorce. From the very beginning, I could tell things were different. They genuinely listened to what I had to say. They were truly concerned about my thoughts and feelings throughout the entire process. It wasn't always fun and games though. They didn't blow sunshine my way if at times there was bad news. They told it to me like it was and I appreciated that. They did it though in a caring way. I felt assured throughout the entire process that my attorney knew his stuff and had my back!
Today, my divorce is final. It is a bitter sweet pill to swallow and my wish is that no one ever has to go through it.... But if you have to, I highly recommend that you allow Mr. John Barrett and Ms. Donna Albert to be your representation throughout your proceedings.
As I move forward from this experience, I look at John and Donna as not only just a good team, but also two good people and two good friends. Thanks you guys.......

I could not day enough good things. Mr. Barrett was always extremely profession and always did what he thought was in my best interest. He was always on top of everything that pertained to my custody case. He is always avaiable if I had any questions and explained the entire process very thoroughly. I have no complaints and would recommend him to anyone. He was extremely knowledgeable and I will always trust and follow his advice. No other lawyer could of represented me the way Mr. Barrett did.
