What can I say, Attorney Barber Jr. is simply the best. He is extremely knowledgeable and a game changer. He was upfront with us about my son's situation for both the a good the bad and the worst possible outcome. He kept us informed and taught my son lessons about picking and choosing his actions, his friends and knowing exactly how to behave when the police stop you. He genius mind did more then win us a victory he did a miracle for my son that we still can't believe it till this day. We thank God every day for leading us to him. I say to any and everyone who will read this, if you ever find yourself in trouble with the law remember ATTORNEY MICHAEL D. BARBER JR. You can't find a better lawyer.

I hired Michael over the phone. I am in NM, he is in GA. He was not only on point with the County court but with the DMV. I got my license back after 10 years. He did not know me, he just did his job. Not one time did I doubt his ability or perseverance. He knows his art and he shows his professionalism and regard for the client with each brushstroke. He facilitated a life changing moment that I have waited on for a decade. He is a true artisan of his profession.
Thank you, Michael. You are an honorable and diligent attorney. I am so grateful.

I was facing multiple charges in two court jurisdictions Mr. Barber handled both cases simultaneously and saved my professional career. I sincerely appreciate all of the work and effort that he put into my cases and I was overjoyed with the outcome and ultimate dismissal. I hope to never need these types of services again, but I will be sure to keep his number locked in my phone. He is worth every cent of the retainer. ....!

Mr. Barber was fantastic in handling my case. I had a DUI charge against me, as well as a speeding ticket and a "failure to maintain lane" ticket; and Mr. Barber was able to get my case dismissed!!
He was very patient, attentive, informative, and most of all, realistic in his expectations. He never made any promises of results he would be able to deliver just to make me happy. He frequently kept me informed of the progress and the outlook on my case. I am the type that likes to know "what are the possible outcomes with all factors considered," and he did a great job of explaining the nuances of my situation to me. He always kept me abreast of the different steps in the legal procedure for dealing with a DUI charge, as well as what his plan of approach was. Having Mr. Barber working on my case gave me a sense of ease because he is very knowledgeable and I could tell he was doing all he could to get me a favorable outcome. During this highly stressful and trying time in my life (no prior arrests or legal troubles), Mr. Barber really made me feel I had an experienced advocate fighting on my behalf. This helped take a ton of stress off my shoulders.
In the end, I got the most favorable of outcomes: a dismissal! Without any reservations, I highly recommend Mr. Barber to anyone who needs legal representation.

My son, 17 yrs old , was coming from a movie at very close to midnight hour. With the legal restrictions of midnight driving and my curfew he was speeding at 111 mph in 65 mph zone. He was caught by the cops for super speeding.
After doing some research, I had decided to get a lawyer, and after more research and looking at the credibility, reviews and ratings I contacted Michael Barber, which I am so glad I did.
We met Michael he went over the case thoroughly asked for all my son's school reports which included the college courses my son was attending in his senior year, his volunteer jobs at the hospitals, etc., Michael asked my son to do some community service before the court date. Michael presented the case well to the Judge and we walked out with zero points and just the speeding fine.
Thanks Michael again, I really appreciate what you did.
