Amazing Hard Working Attorney
I have used Erin Barnett on several cases from criminal to family .... each time I was beyond impressed. She is very attentive and responsive...honest about the possible outcome and will do her best to get the best most desired outcome possible.... I would highly recommend her and her firm for any case.

Have referred others in the past and still do...
I was referred to Erin by another lawyer, a mutual friend. Although I felt I was already in good hands because of this, she didn't let me down. Not only is she extremely professional, but her personality shines through her work. For example, she is very thorough and this was evident every time we had to meet up in or out of court. She is a hard worker and was always on top of my case (which took a year to close) and always kept me updated. I have already recommended a few people to her and one of those is currently using Erin's services. I have no reason to seek another a lawyer other than Erin in the future if needed. On a interpersonal level, she was great because she assured me of a positive outcome, while urging me to be realistic with my own requests while enduring this family case. I really appreciated that.
