  • Samuel Louis LePrell

    I have worked with Barry on many occasions and endorse him. His expertise in real estate law is outstanding. I was the arbitrator in a hearing where Barry represented one of the parties. His preparation for the hearing and his presentation of his client's position were excellent. If you have a real estate litigation matter you should seriously consider retaining Barry as your attorney.
