Professional & quick
I hired Patrick Barnes to help me with an assault arrest. It was blown way out of proportion with the police. My first offense ever - and I am not young. Long story short, my case was dismissed and quickly expunged. He's quick and knows his business and his way around the courts.

Very Thorough
Had to have some real estate transactions, and some estate issues that I used Patrick Barnes to handle for me. He was very thorough with his work & actually gave me some options that I not only hadn't thought about, but didn't know about. Very satisfied and would highly recommend Patrick. Does very good work.

Was in total control
Was recently charged with a domestic assault charge, that should have never happened. Patrick went to court with me and was amazing to watch in action in the courtroom. He totally blew away the prosecutor and convinced the Judge that it was a bad arrest, and the Judge discharged my case. He knows his stuff and is very prepared when he walked into the courtroom.

Superman!!! :)
Patrick Barnes is at court at opening and gets you in and out. He worked his magic and got my case dismissed. He never lies and tells you everything on the front end. He is an AMAZING lawyer and I would definitely rehire him.

A gentleman and a A Scholar
Patrick went above and beyond in helping a good friend of mine with a legal problem in Memphis TN I would have no hesitation in recommending a truly fantastic and knowledgeable person who truly has his clients best interest ans well being at heart. Besides representing this client who is from out of state he went out of his way to ensure she was able to recover her property and get back on the road to her home state. Something that most other people I know would not have done so willingly. Without His help this would have taken a great effort on her family who reside in excess of 500 miles away and were unable to travel to Memphis to assist in this matter. I cannot recommend this man highly enough.
