I needed legal help to represent me after I received a Palm Beach County residential foreclosure lawsuit. If you don’t answer and object to a Palm Beach County foreclosure lawsuit within 20 days you will lose by default.
After the lawsuit was filed against me, a friend referred me to Gary Barcus. I remain amazed how quickly Gary designed and filed his answers along with his defenses that enabled me to become the offensive Party.
With his 30 plus years of ligation experience and background in foreclosure defense, debt negotiation, collection and contract law, Gary extended the litigation for several years with defenses and counterclaim actions against 2 lenders who had pending foreclosures against me on the same mortgage that we were attempting to negotiate settlement with.
After the extended period of Circuit Court, Appellate Court and Florida Supreme Court denials, we forged on with Gary’s patience and efforts through his judicial demands for mediation and settlement negotiations. The fight was worth it!
I benefited from a short sale settlement that Gary negotiated that was conditioned with a waiver of deficiency on both first and second mortgages with no other strings attached. While my credit condition is improving, I became credit damaged during the process, but Gary gave me my life back and spared me the stigma effects of a foreclosure and post foreclosure financial judgment claims that could have been made against me.
If you are looking for a boutique hands on attorney for foreclosure defense, contract disputes or debt collection solutions in Palm Beach, Broward, Miami Dade and other Florida counties instead of a behemoth TV advertising law firm with junior attorneys who churn canned documents , then go to Gary Allyn Barcus,
Gary is an “Old School “ law library attendee lawyer who combs the law books day and night seeking case law to use for his intended result. He is well known and respected by opposing attorneys, and also respected by justice minded civil judges at all levels.

I have known Gary for many years as both an attorney, friend and personal attorney who has represented me in court. Gary is extremely intelligent, honest, professional and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Gary for any legal representation and/or any legal needs. He is bright, hard working and very pleasant to deal with. I have also seen his interactions with other lawyers. He is very well regarded by his peers and well respected and liked by his clients.

I first met Mr. Barcus as the attorney representing a plaintiff against my employer. He did such an excellent job representing his client that my employer chose to retain him after he successfully defended his client -- That was in 1999. Since then he has become my personal confidant and only person I turn to for legal matters or issues.
I have yet to meet a more trustworty and competent legal professional.
