I have been a court reporter for 45 years both in the federal system for the Eastern District of New York (Brooklyn, New York) and at the state, civil and criminal levels in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties, in Florida. I have, as a court reporter, served on major cases such as Abscam, Agent Orange, a plethora of mafia-connected cases, and as one of the reporters on USA v Manuel Antonio Noriega in the federal court for the Southern District of Florida (Miami) and have worked on many, many family court cases.
I introduce myself to you, the reader, in this manner so that you will know I have some background and credentials to assess the prowess of those in the legal community, having worked with the brightest and the best. This leads me to my opinion of Barry S. Franklin, Esquire, whom I count among that community of attorneys - the brightest and the best.
Barry S. Franklin is an attorney in Aventura, Florida specializing in family matters.
Over the period of time that I have been fortunate to work with Mr. Franklin, in a court reportorial position, he has never failed to impress with his skill, expertise and knowledge.
It is a unique and enlightening experience to hear his words when representing a client. In each instance, whether a hearing, a trial or a deposition, you can be assured of Mr. Franklin's presentation being erudite, cogent and well-informed, and that he will champion the best interests of his clients with vigor and tenacity.
He is, as they say, a lawyer's lawyer. His success rate vis-a-vis client repesentation is excellent.
For those seeking legal counsel concerning marital or family matters, you cannot have your interests better served than by Barry S. Franklin, Esquire.

Barry Franklin embodies all that a professional should demonstrate in advocating a client's interest. He reflected great understanding of the various areas that clients are impacted during the divorce process including, emotional, financial, parental, and self esteem. His demeanor is very low keyed and expresses himself in a manner that a lay person can understand. His knowledge of the law is extensive and more importantly, Barry understands its application in the areas relevant to divorce cases, He is thorough and communicates well with other professionals making the experience less stressful than it normally is. I highly endorse Barry Franklin and believe that any individual, man or woman, would benefit from his representation of their interests.

All I can say is "Thank God for Barry Franklin and his associates!"
I retained Barry Franklin as counsel after my initial divorce attorney and a second post litigation attorney gave me the feeling that neither of them cared enough or believed that I had a strong enough case to fight against my former husband.
Barry came as a recommendation from a friend of the family and subsequently when my parents divorced, he was the counsel for my father.
From the moment I walked into his offices and had out initial consultation, I knew Barry should have been representing me from the get go. In hindsight, I may not even being going through all this post litigation whoop la if I had just bit the bullet upfront, but hindsight is 20/20.
Barry is a remarkable attorney, extremely knowledgeable and skilled in his profession. His office staff are so friendly and always on top of my case! I don't know how I would have kept my sanity intact without them all!
While we are still in the trenches, I am certain that with Barry and his team at my side, I am in the best possible place (case wise) that I could be in.
If you are looking firm, friendly yet aggressive attorney, Barry is your man! I can't say enough good things about this group. I am forever grateful for their hard work and compassion through this very nasty ordeal.

Barry is the best attorney around. He and his office reflect his character, they are kind, caring and always professional. I have to thank Barry for for all that he has done for me and my son. He worked tirelessly on my case and was always so pleasant and fun to work with even in my messy battle.
His office is run "family style", his wife, daughter, plus the staff all work together on your case, Barry oversees the group and they are a great caring team! Barry is an excellent writer, my last attorney filed cryptic motions that went no where. Barry has such great style, his motions are clear,compelling and backed up by relevant case law.

I visited Mr. Franklin a month ago regarding a landlord/tenant situation I was having. Mr. Franklin assisted a family member of mine some time ago and came highly recommended. I immediately felt at ease as he was knowledgeable and honest with how I should proceed. Mr. Franklin addressed my situation immediately and he and his office staff were in contact with me throughout the week with updates. I appreciate the honest professional advice that did not lead me down a legal road that was not necessary. I would recommend Mr. Franklin to anyone who is looking for a fair knowledgeable attorney who truly cares about his clients.

I ( Lorie Masters) had the pleasure of working with Mr. Barry S. Franklin and his staff for 17 plus months. Mr Franklin with his 28 plus years in family law, know his stuff. During this time, I found Mr. Franklin and his staff to be professional, direct and demanding to meet all deadlines and orders, without delays. Although, we were confronted by many challenges, and disgusting frivolous delays from the opposing counsel, Mr. Franklin continued to work hard to reach a fair settlement in the best interest of the minor child.
Despite all this, Mr. Franklin remained compassionate, caring and true to his word. For this, I am truly grateful. Mr. Barry S. Franklin is a man with integrity and truly a man with a Big Heart.
For these reasons, I highly recommend, Mr. Barry S. Franklin and Associates to represent you in family law.

Mr. Franklin has handled two cases for me with excellent results. He was always available to discuss any issue. Simply the best experience i have had with an attorney. He is extremely courteous as well as his entire staff. He took his time to learn all the details of my case and then worked diligently towards a quick and fair settlement. He is also an excellent litigator, definitely not a pushover and is extremely knowledgeable. This is a guy you definitely want on your team!

If you are in need of an experienced attorney, I highly recommend Mr. Franklin.

I came here because I'm a big believer in the power of reviews. I am disappointed to see them used for personal vendettas. Some people just shouldn't be allowed to get behind a keyboard...because they're only goal is to destroy hard-earned reputations. I can read right through them...and hope you can too.
I talked to several attorneys before a co-worker recommended Barry. He had a difficult case also, and assured us Barry was the right choice. One of many things that impressed me during our initial consultation was that, unlike the others, he seemed genuinely interested in getting to know our family dynamic, and that of the opposing family. This was especially important to me because your attorney is your voice, you need to be able to trust them to speak for you. How can someone effectively represent you if they don't know your values, beliefs, etc? It was crucial that we find someone who is as passionate as we are about family, Barry's that guy.
Our case went on for a year, during which, he was the utmost professional, but always with compassion. He is a man of integrity and demands it of others. He is an expert in his field. He is surely NOT a pushover, and won't be bullied...isnt that the guy you want on your side? It is evident that he is highly respected by the court. I trusted his advice , but there were times when I asked for his reasoning...he was patient in explaining the 'why'. He listens, even during the emotional times.
We were always provided with a detailed financial report that was more than fair for his experience and expertise. They were honest about charges, and sensitive to our financial situation. Throughout the year, he consistently tried to resolve issues without frivolous motions and court appearances that drives up the cost...too bad the other side wasn't as ethical.
ONLY with Barry's guidance and caring , were we able to stay the course and get what we needed ...what was RIGHT for the children.
Many thanks and appreciation to Barry and his team...he is our attorney for life.
