If you are looking for someone to represent you that is knowledgable, hard working, professional and also genuinely cares about his clients, then Michael Barber will not disappoint. He handled all my motions, including Early Termination of probation, and got the best result possible each time. My Early Termination motion was granted from a judge that is typically difficult to convince. Mr. Barber works to develop a positive working relationship with the state attorney's he deals with in order to help his clients get the best result possible. I fully recommend him to anyone needing representation.

Our experience was impeccable representation from Attorney Barber! I express "our" because Attorney Barber went into my fiancé's case with extreme knowledge while sharply skilled into his craft as well high expectations of the fight, trial and outcome. All and more in which he delivered!
We then later needed representation for a more delicate member of my family. Because I/we had witnessed his skill, and were not just happy with the outcome of an impossible win, but EXTREMELY Impressed in our last experience with Attorney Barber, we did not hesitate and both entrusted Attorney Barber with this situation as well.
Our end result was overwhelmingly surreal!
In our prior situation where facing a minimum of 12 years D.O.C. and a maximum of 30 years to include priors, a current conviction as well as current violation of felony probation Attorney Barber got us Off on not 1 Extra day served; for 18 months total and the 18 months to be ran concurrent with the felony violation and what was left on the current D.O.C. sentence.!!!
Our recent and last situation, Attorney Barber did the same as far our fight, his skill and determination led us from a plea offer of 4.5 years and or 10 years minimum if found guilty to another very remarkable workmanship witnessed/done, only 213 days county jail time and minimal probation was our outcome.!!!
Thanks to Michael our family is as a whole again and are All free!!!
Words alone can Not thank this attorney for what he has given us all!!!
We will forever be thankful for the quality of service he provided and for what he has done and given us.
