Excellent Legal Work
John has such a great command of the law. Had an intellectual property agreement that needed to be drafted and John was able to consult me on the project and ultimately prepare the legal document for both parties to execute. Most importantly, John was objective and able to foresee and explain the trade-offs in writing the document. He understood my risks and objectives in the deal. Simply put, the agreement didn't get us caught in the weeds when the final negotiations were happening. Can't give him enough praise and his fee was very reasonable for the time and expertise he provided.

Civil Judgement Warrior - Judgement thru Award
Jon Barash was the only attorney I contacted who would take the time to listen to me and come up with a step by step plan to secure a judgement and monetary award. Three lawyers told me I was wasting my time and to accept the $45,000 loss. My case was against an elusive, high net worth, professional scofflaw who preyed on everyone he came in contact with. After failing to pay rent ($6000/month) and subsequently trashing my $550k furnished home, I had this man evicted. Jon helped me a win a judgement in Fayette County and then doggedly and efficiently secured an award for the full amount. During the 18 month process Jon clearly explained my options every step of the way. It would be hard to imagine another attorney communicating, explaining, educating, empathizing to the degree Jon demonstrated. My decision to engage Jon Barash yielded 100% satisfaction.

SVP & General Counsel
I contacted, consulted with and hired Mr. Barash fairly soon after I joined the company as its General Counsel. I was very pleased with Jon's representation of the company in a complex business dispute. I believe both of us were learning quite a bit about the company at the same time and Jon’s organizational skills and analysis of the case were critical in helping me pull the facts and history together and allowed us to objectively focus on the substantive issues in the case.
