Bill Barber
I hired Mr. Barber for my divorce and defense of my son on several occasions throughout the years. Mr. Barber is honest and has provided excellent service and I would highly recommend him. Mr. Barber knows the law and helps obtain the best results and advice. Whomever is represented by Mr. Barber will not be disappointed.

Excellent lawyer
Bill Barber is very knowledgeable and helpful with any legal issue regarding crime, misdemeanors, custody, divorce, and Wills. My husband and I had our Wills (along with Health Care Surrogate, Living Will and Power of Attorney) done with him. It eases our minds in knowing these are ready if something should happen to one of us. We were treated with kindness and respect.

Bill has always proven that ' the law is there to protect me' And he understands how a person can 'feel'.... so victimized ..and Bill takes that personal! reminding me that I have rights that I am Someone!! . I wouldn't believe in our town of Owensboro Ky , and in my opinion ANYWHERE that there is a more Qualified , Caring and Competent Attorney than Albert William Barber III ( Bill ) He KNOWS the LAW !!
