I could NOT ask for a better lawyer!
There is not room here to adequately express my gratitude for what Hugh Barrow has done for me as I have divorced my abusive husband of 20 years. Hugh is the best! He is a man of absolute integrity. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. In addition to my divorce, Hugh was instrumental in me being granted a very necessary 3 year Domestic Violence Order against my X-husband. Even though my X-husband, a now established criminal, hired a VERY dishonest, incompetent and unprofessional lawyer, Hugh has done everything absolutely necessary to protect me legally. He is always accessible, always keeps me informed, always does things in a timely manner, and treats me as if I am his only client. I am very grateful to Hugh and would recommend him, in a heartbeat, to anyone! The world needs more lawyers like Hugh Barrow.

Great Work
I am so happy I was referred to Hugh. He was aggressive, but reasonable, which is exactly what I needed. The divorce process can be a bit insane. Hugh helped me understand what was happening and let me know what to expect.
