If you want the best, why try the rest'
I was blessed to work with attorney/judge Barber, his wife Patti and Darla. I gained a remarkable respect for both the professionalism and humanitarianism practiced in this firm. Leaving my job here, for an advanced position I felt led to take at that time, I still cried the whole way home and pray to this day that I was led along the right path. Mr. Barber is an attorney whose caliber surpasses all others. That's said from a legal support staff with 20+ years experience. During my time employed by him, I learned how it was our job to ensure that the law enforcement and DAs jobs were getting done. No stone was to be left unturned in defense of our clients...right or wrong. Every person is entitled to a defense...right or wrong. He gave it his all and we all slept well no matter what the case. If my son was in trouble (his dad is a lawyer), Mr. Barber would be my first call. God Bless you Mr. And Mrs Barber, and thank you for all you do Darla Smith!

Customer Review
Mr. Barber and his team were extremely helpful and friendly during my case. This was my first time dealing with the law, and they cared for my nervous needs. His secretary is absolutely splendid. They completed all the tasks required, which led to the prosecutor deciding not to pursue the charge. I would recommend him to anyone in need of legal help.

Excellent Lawyer & Excellent Outcome
I was accused of a DUI (Under 21 also) and a few other traffic misdemeanors so I was in a bit of trouble. I searched around a few days for a lawyer and Mr. Barber was one of my choices after narrowing it down to just a handful. I consulted with a few other lawyers before choosing Mr. Barber to represent me and I knew right away after speaking with Mr. Barber that he was the best choice for me. The other lawyers didn't seem real confident with my exact case but Mr. Barber had a confidence about him that the others were lacking. At first I wasn't 100% sure that this unspoken confidence would mean anything for my case but after getting the excellent outcome I got, I knew his stature and persona played a huge role in the outcome. Him and his staff were always easy to get a hold of and they were all very helpful throughout my case. I even called Mr. Barber a few times after business hours and he answered every time. I couldn't be happier with the outcome of my case. Without him on my side, I don't think I would have achieved such a good outcome. His fees weren't the cheapest but they weren't the most expensive either. You get what you pay for and I couldn't be happier. If I or anyone I know ever get into any kind of similar trouble, Mr. Barber will be the first call.

The Best in Statesboro!
If you are ever in a tough legal situation, Mr. Barber is definitely the lawyer you need. He helped me through the most challenging situation of my life. He takes the time to answer any questions that you may have and uses his expertise in the legal system when analyzing and working on your case. I am thankful I chose Mr. Barber and would not be in the same position today without him.

Thank YOU!
I was a little skeptic to begin with.... however; I now know it was due to my panic and anxiety attacks, that I suffer from since years ago. Mr. Barber did a wonderful job for me. He is not very talkative, however; he is a good listener and thinker, which you need in a lawyer. Thank you, again! JOB WELL DONE!

Highly recommend
We were thankful for the recommendation we received to seek Keith Barber as our son's legal counsel. It is obvious Mr. Barber is well respected in the Bulloch County court system and we soon discovered why. Mr. Barber guided us through the legal process, re-assured us and provided our son with advice that has positively changed our son's life course. We are very grateful to Mr. Barber and would highly recommend to all - just remember, after the advice is given, the client has to take the advised steps to acquire the positive results!

A superb lawyer.
It is difficult to express how thankful I am for his services. Mr. Barber did an outstanding job. He worked hard on my case and I am very grateful to have had him as my lawyer. I was in a very bad situation and with his help I was able to get a very favorable outcome. Based on my charges jail time was definitely possibility, but with Mr. Barber's help I was only convicted for a single misdemeanor and was placed on probation. Without a shadow of a doubt I would not hesitate to hire him again and I strongly recommend choosing Mr. Barber as your attorney.

W. Keith Barber, Excellent service
Mr. Barber was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He handled my daughter's case with care and compassion. He was able, through his expertise, to turn a "nightmare" situation into a very tolerable situation. Mr. Barber and his staff kept me informed throughout the process and did not add on additional charges. Mr. Barber proved to be a trustworthy, Christian gentleman. I highly recommend him. Thank You, Mr. Barber

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Keith Barber is truly a Southern Gentleman. That quality shows well in his dealings in the courthouse in Statesboro, Georgia. People respect both him and his opinions. That includes judges, juries, prosecutors, and law enforcement. Perhaps it is his experience as a police officer years ago in Fulton County, but more likely because of his hard work, that he is so successful as a criminal defense lawyer. He has helped me with trial in Bulloch County, and is definitely my go-to guy when my clients don't want to pay my out of town fee to handle their cases in Statesboro. When they do pay my travel fee, I always retain Keith as my local attorney to help me with his treasure trove of knowledge. He's a priceless asset. A really good lawyer."
DUI and DWI Attorney | Jun 19
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Keith Barber is the consummate legal professional and a true Southern gentleman. His knowledge of the courts, prosecutors and jurists in the Bulloch County area (and all the adjacent counties) is unmatched in that section of Georgia. Keith is the first person I call when I get a call from a person seeking legal help on a DUI or criminal matter. If I am going to handle one of my own client's cases in that part of Georgia, Keith will be sitting next to me at counsel table, giving me the local "scoop" on the case. Two thumbs up for Attorney Keith Barber."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jun 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Keith for nearly a decade. I don't practice in his neck of the woods. However, whenever I have a client in trouble near Georgia Southern University, he is my "go to guy." He has gotten terrific results for people charged with alcohol and drug offenses. As a former Municipal Court Judge, Keith is very well connected and knows how the legal system operates. He is an outstanding lawyer who shows great regard for his clients welfare."
