Great Lawyer and Amazing Person!!
She is an excellent lawyer and I can honestly say she really cared about my situtation. I have never felt so at ease with a lawyer as I did with Barbara Futter. She always kept me informed and did what she said she would do. She goes the extra mile for you and is just amazing! I highly recommend her and if I ever need to hire another lawyer it would be her, hands down. Thank you Barbara for being a great lawyer and a great person.

I was served with a frivolous Order of Protection by my sister, which risked fracturing my entire family. These actions are difficult to defend and judges rarely dismiss such orders. However, thanks to Barbara's diligence, professionalism, and aggressive legal work, the judge ruled unconditionally in my favor, dismissing the entire claim. Justice was served for my entire family, and for that I am immeasurably grateful to Barbara Futter.

Truly there for you
I was faced with a very unexpected custody dispute and called Barbara in a state of shock. She calmed me immediately and gave me supportive and detailed information on how to proceed. She is extremely responsive and kept me informed of what to expect and what was needed of me every step of the way. I was very pleased with her professionalism, yet very personal manner and would highly recommend her. I hope that I will never require her services again, but she would be my first call if legal help was ever neccesary.

Fantastic Lawyer
My husband was represented by Barbara Futter in his social security disability case, which had a positive outcome. Barbara Futter is an excellent attorney. She genuinely cares about her clients, and has a knack to explain relevant terms in a manner that you can understand. She stayed in touch with us and would always return calls and inquiries in a prompt manner. She always greeted us with a friendly demeanor, great attitude, was honest and straightforward with us. I highly recommend Barbara Futter as an attorney.
