Competent and extremely confidant
Let me start by saying success in law requires boldness and as a customer I expect my Attorney to not just be bold but competent and extremely confidant. Clint (Barbour) has all three traits that makes a great lawyer. Of course I can say he’s knowledgeable and responsive because he is, most good lawyers are, but Clint sets himself apart by taking a pragmatic approach to your personal situation with the law and does not complicate things unnecessarily. With that said, he is VERY capable dealing with complex matters such as my own. I always felt as if my needs were put first and was treated as a friend rather than a number. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained in words I understood. It is in confidence that I can recommend Clint for your unique situation and to work your case as efficiently as possible. Let me end with this. Clint Barbour is intelligent and has a competitive spirit. He is a Lawyers Lawyer and a Working Man’s Lawyer. I am a past client, a current client and if needed a future client.

Above and Beyond
I was referred to Clint by another attorney. This should speak volumes alone. However Clint is an excellent attorney the firm as a whole are friendly and professional staff. Clint has represented me over the years for a child custody battle and finally over the years. I have attempted to negotiate with the other party. However he provided EXCELLENT ABOVE and BEYOND REPRESENTATION. I could not have been more pleased with his service and representation

Response from Clint Barbour June 6, 2019
Thank you for your kind words, William. It was my pleasure to represent you in such a hotly contested custody case. It is always awesome to see a dad get custody of his daughter.

Best Family Law Attorney
I hired Clint Barbour for a child support modification case. He was detail oriented, reliable, and he always responded in a timely manner. I believe he understood my needs and his professionalism put me at ease. It is obvious he is very organized and cares about the well being of his clients. I highly recommend Clint and I would definitely hire him again.

Trust & Communication
I rarely give reviews, but this is something I feel very strongly about. Without going into details, a divorce, I needed help. The level of communication, compassion, trust, and understanding of what I was going through, exceeded my expectations when I selected this firm to represent me. All of my concerns and questions were met and answered without the issue of more questions. If there were, it was a "Time will tell.". On the day of the final hearing, the courts decision, I (a father) was granted custody of my daughter. I know some of that has to do with myself. BUT - If it weren't for C. Barbour and this firm to help me through the obstacles, I doubt the outcome would've been the way it is. I highly recommend this firm for your representation.

Best attorney ever!!!
I had an attorney before hiring this firm. This previous attorney was much like many I had hired in the past. He cared nothing about me or my case. He was in it for a quick payday. Mr Barbour was willing to offer his consultation for free and I felt at ease as he listened to everything I had to say. He offered sound advice and he was doing more for me than the attorney I had hired. I eventually hired this firm and had him represent me in my divorce case. His expertise and excellence triumphed as he soon realized that my case was taking a turn toward a custody case. After he reviewed my case, he discussed with me all my options and the cost that would be incurred. I chose to go for custody with his 100% support. His knowledge and experience with dfcs and family court combined with his strong will to fight and litigate for his client was unprecedented. Being a male fighting for custody in a female dominated system I was unsure and this wasn't going to be an easy task, but Mr Barbour kept me positive and he had a vision of a positive outcome and he remained positive throughout my 3 1/2 year long case. He took control of the helm like a pro and knew his way around a system as if he was in his back yard. He made me feel confident, in control and assured that he was doing his very best to represent me and my interests. He was never demeaning or condescending and I always felt very at ease with him. His advice was amazingly correct, even when I had doubts. His skill was impressive as was his patience, honesty and professionalism. I now have custody of my three young children and am so very glad I chose to hire this firm and Mr Barbour to represent me in a challenging civil case. Mr Barbour was, by far, the very best attorney I have ever spoken with and hired. He is the ONLY attorney I have ever referred to anyone and that recommendation doesn't come without merit.

No follow up
I wanted to hire BBT law group to review an issue with a CCW license in Fulton County Georgia. I spoke to a Lawyer in Mr. Barbour office and was instructed to collect the documents and they would contact me again after a review. The documents were forwarded to the firm and no call ever came. I called back to the office and spoke again to the Attorney. He was apologetic about not calling when he said he would and that he could help me clean up my issue pretty easily, but needed to review the documents further. I never heard from them again even after a few calls to the office and left messages. I did sort out my issue with the District Attorney helping me out, rather that these guys. I really should thank them for saving me the money. Find a Attorney that will return your calls.

Criminal defense Attorney | May 25
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Clint is the first call I make when I have an issue arise that I want a trusted colleague to weigh in on. He never lets me down and continues to pay the price for it! I recently had the pleasure of working with him on a criminal case where we each represented one of two co-defendants. That experience no doubt made me a better attorney having the chance to learn from him. Clint is the man and one of the few you can truly trust no matter what kind of case you have."
