Swindled a single mother with little income and charged for services never rendered. represented me once, and withdrew. 3500 out the door. Poor representation, poorly dressed with poor hygiene in front of a judge. If you have a child custody case steer clear. I don't know how else she does in her other fields. Hired someone else and it was resolved with half of Barkus' retainer.

Lori is an excellent, professional and ethical attorney that will fight to get your case resolved and settled. She understands the issues surrounding child support and alimony and believes in reaching a settlement when possible instead of prolonging your case unnecessarily. If your case has to go to Court, she is always prepared and ready to fight for you. Believe it or not, my Florida divorce case ( including after-divorce alimony and CS issues) was dragged through the Court system for more than 15 years due to the broken Florida laws that we have and by other attorneys that preferred litigation. Then I hired Lori and she closed my case in a few months. I am now a free man with closure who can go on with his life. Thank you Lori.

Several years ago I was faced with having to file for divorce and didn't know where to turn. I obtained Lori's number through a recommendation and met with her to explain my particular case. Lori was professional, competent, understanding and fair. I ended up hiring Lori as my counselor for my divorce and could not have been any happier with the outcome. She kept me well informed and provided through answers to all questions. She provided sound advice during a very emotional and confusing time. Due to my divorce being "complicated" (as if any aren't), it was great to have a very knowledgeable and experienced counselor in my corner. Through her superior representation I was able to reach an amicable and fair dissolution of marriage. Unfortunately, over the years I have found a number of friends who found themselves in need of a Divorce Attorney. I always refer them to Attorney Barkus knowing they will be in competently represented.
Thank you Lori for all your hard work.

I met Ms. Barkus a few years ago when looking for an attorney that would support my strong views on equality. She always listened and effectively remembered my concerns. I know I am not th easiest client but she has demonstrated patience with me and is a hard worker. She is also very thorough in her filings which in turn offers her clients a sense of confidence. You will be in good hands with Lori.

My original divorce was finalized in March 2004 and I was ordered to pay a large monthly amount of permanent alimony. I met with Attorney Barkus in July 2014 to move forward with a modification action. She was the only attorney that I met wirh over the last several years that believed in my case. As a result of her reprsesentation, I was able to completely elimate my permanent alimony by providing a one time cash settlement to my ex-wife. I recently retained a Cerfiifed Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) designation and plan to work with attorney Barkus and her clients.

Lori is a professional, compassionate, and competent lawyer. I have collaborated on cases with her for many years as well as utilized her services myself. She is thorough, effective and personable. I highly recommend her to anyone needing a family law attorney!

Working with Lori and her staff was a very positive experience. She is very professional in her approach to the law. We developed a good working relationship that minimized my legal fees and more importantly my exposure to many of the unwarranted claims and demands of opposing counsel. Divorce in Florida is a ridiculous event and Lori navigated the process extremely well.

Lori is an amazing attorney. Lori took on my alimony modification case that was 5 years old and mid trial. Lori was the 3rd attorney on my case, and in a short amount of time she had my case settled. Not only is Lori an amazing attorney she is also a compassionate human being. A very rare find in an attorney.

We used Lori to handled our second-parent adoption. She was professional, knowledgeable and kept us abreast of everything that was taking place and what would happen during the court proceeding. She was fully prepared and always available to answer any questions we had, making it a smooth and easy process. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney.

Was a client for divorce mediation and court document preparation. I found a general lack of attention to detail. Unfortunately, we were forced to hire another attorney to fix the inadequacy of her work.
