Patrick T. Barone has been a top-rated, nationally-known Michigan lawyer for almost three decades. Few practicing criminal defense lawyer have received more honors and accolades. The six attorneys at the Barone Defense Firm have more than 100 years of total legal experience in State and Federal Courts.


Mr. Barone launched his legal career in 1988 when he served as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Richard D. Kuhn of the Oakland County Circuit Court. During his three-year tenor Mr. Barone began honing his trial skills while learning from the veteran Judge and many of the State’s top trial lawyers who appeared in his courtroom. In 1992, he opened his own law practice where he began his concentration in criminal law. Since 1993 Mr. Barone has been admitted to practice Federal law before the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. In 2003 Mr. Barone became the principal and founding member of the Barone Defense Firm, headquartered in Birmingham, Michigan with offices also in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Since this time Mr. Barone has handled thousands of cases on behalf of citizens charged with many disparate crimes in the adult and juvenile courts throughout Michigan. 


It is believed that Mr. Barone has defended more criminal law trials of DUI-DWI cases in Michigan than any other private practice lawyer. Winning your intoxicated driving case is the first best option, but where necessary, Mr. Barone will take the case up on appeal as far as necessary to obtain the best result. Past clients facing the nightmare of a driving under the influence, drug possession, or serious injury by vehicle or vehicular homicide accusations have no other option but to try every possible legal tactic to win.


In addition to his law practice, Mr. Barone currently serves as adjunct professor at the Western State University/Thomas M. Cooley Law School, has been on the faculty of the Michigan Trial Practice College and is a graduate of the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer’s College. He also frequently teaches law, trial skills and forensic science to others at national and state conferences, workshops and seminars attended by lawyers, judges, doctors and scientists. Mr. Barone is often called upon to provide expert commentary in newspapers, on television and on radio.


Mr. Barone is the author of several books on criminal law, gun law and DUI defense, including the well-respected two volume treatise entitled “Defending Drinking Drivers (James Publishing)”, “Michigan DUI Law: A Citizen’s Guide”, “An Entrepreneur’s Guide to Michigan’s Medical Marihuana Laws”, "Armed and Educated, Michigan Gun Law" (in print), and a chapter entitled “Bringing the Scriptures to Life with Bibliodrama” for the book entitled “Action Explorations”. He has also written several chapters for the West/Aspator Books “Inside the Minds” series on various aspects of criminal law, discovery and trial practice; and he is a regularly contributing author for various legal periodicals and has written 100s of articles that have appeared in some of the Nation’s premier Law Journals.


Mr. Barone has received much peer recognition and numerous prestigious awards, including an “AV” (highest) rating by the “Martindale-Hubbell Law Dictionary”, and since 2009 has been included in the highly selective “US News & World Report’s America’s Best Lawyers” while The Barone Defense Firm appears in their companion “America’s Best Law Firms.” He has been rated “Seriously Outstanding” by “Super Lawyers” and rated “Outstanding/10.0” by AVVO. Mr. Barone was further distinguished through an appointment to the advisory board for the Michigan edition of “Leading Lawyers Magazine.”


Additionally, in 2018 Mr. Barone became a “CP” when the American Board of Examiners Certified him as a Practitioner of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. Soon thereafter he reached the next level of certification, that of a Practitioner Applicant for Trainer (PAT). Mr. Barone is the only Michigan lawyer so-certified by the American Board. He is currently a 2022 candidate to become Board Certified as a Trainer, Educator and Practitioner (TEP) of Psychodrama, Sociometry and Group Psychotherapy. Mr. Barone’s psychodrama and sociometry training and certification informs his courtroom jury trial practice and has contributed to his teaching of law and trial skills. He also utilizes this training in his business consulting practice which includes leadership development and the exploration and improvement of group dynamics and performance in the workplace.

The youngest of 6 children, he grew up in Oakland County, Michigan. He has been happily married for over 23 years and is the father of two girls, both of whom are now young adults.

DWI Case
Patric Barone is very professions and very dedicated to his clients. He listened to my story and translated it into an end result that was more that I could have ever expected. I could not have gotten through the process without his guidance and expertise on the matter.

I had recently worked with Patrick Baron on my case, and I cannot express how grateful I am for the outstanding legal assistance I received from Him. He demonstrates remarkable ability to explain person when it comes the complexity of the Cases and the potential outcomes in a very clear manner.

I observed his exceptional negotiation skills and legal expertise in the court room. I respect him when it comes to professionalism and integrity in dealing the case. Patrick Barone is very knowledgeable and committed to get the best possible outcomes.

A Lawyer that knows his business.
My husband and I own a bar, and your liquor license is a key factor. Patrick handled every aspect in helping us keep our license plus to keeping me out of jail. I was facing a lot of jail time for my 3rd offense drunk driving. So Anyone knows that being short staffed in business is a jail sentence in it’s self. Jail wasn’t an option for me. We would have closed our bar. If you are facing anything near what I was Patrick is your man. He is well versed in every aspect when it comes to drinking and driving offenses. He wrote book on it! (Literally) He save our business, and my life for that matter. He will have your back.

My Experience with Mr. Patrick Barone
Patrick Barone, was hired by me to represent my son that was wrapped up in a sexual assault case while at the age of 16. He came highly recommended by my corporate attorney at the time. My wife and I met with Patrick and went through the case and we all concluded that it was the right case for Patrick to tackle and so we moved forward with him through the process. Like any case of this nature it's never easy and you feel like your child is under attack and being wrongfully accused of something they didn't do. From the moment we began the process with Patrick, he methodically moved through each and every step with us within the court system. The most important message I want to make very clear to anyone reading this review is from the word go Patrick began digging very deeply into the accusations. What was very different about him was the attention to detail and the desire to understand the circumstances surrounding the whole case. Patrick was very careful to not paint an unrealistic picture for my wife and I until he began to understand for himself the true nature of the accusation and its' validity or lack thereof. Once the due diligence and research was completed he knew what path and outside professionals we needed to assemble for our team and he did just that. Hands down the best representation I have ever had. Patrick is a no BS guy that sticks to the facts and prepares you very very well for what's ahead.

Response from Patrick Barone November 3, 2022
As a parent I have an understanding of how difficult it is to have a child in a situation like this. It's probably one of the most difficult things any parent can go through. In evaluating the facts of this case, and interviewing all of the witnesses, it soon became clear to me who was telling the truth. Thankfully, I was able to persuade all involved, including the prosecutor and Judge, and ultimately in my view, justice was served. Thank you for your kind and heartfelt words. It's cases like this and clients like you and your family that make me job fulfilling.

Mr. B
Mr. Barone was referred to me by a well respected attorney in Northern Michigan . My small business was dependent on a dismissal of a DUI and 2 felony charges of resisting arrest . There was much more to the case and Patrick was very patient with my wife and I explaining it to him . He really took the time ( over an hour) to listen and to actually get to know what we were like personally . Well, to make a long story short Patrick armed with his years of experience with DUI cases challenged the charges with the prosecution. We relied on the discovery evidence which he requested immediately. I couldn’t have been more fortunate with the result. The charges which included a possible two yrs in jail and loss of driving privileges, and my business ended up a restricted license for 90 days , a visually impaired misdemeanor, community service, and court costs , and Peace of Mind! If your in a tough spot which can happen when you least expect it by all means talk to Mr. Barone or anyone at his law firm. You won’t regret it .

Response from Patrick Barone November 3, 2022
Watching the video of the arrest, and seeing how the police abused you, was quite literally horrifying. Unfortunately, the law of R & O in our State unjustly favors the police, and as I told you, because the law is so bad, I was concerned that the charges were technically but not factually correct. In the end, I think we obtained the best possible result short of trial, thereby avoiding all of the associated risks. It was a pleasure serving you both in this case!

Don't Settle for Second Best
When your freedom and your life are on the line, you never want to settle for "second best." Retaining Patrick Barone and his team was the best decision I made when I found myself in legal trouble. I was charged with 3 serious felonies and was scared of what might happen to me. His team immediately made me feel like family and brought me confidence that they had my back no matter what and that they would fight to the end for my case. Ryan Ballard, who did my initial consultation after I first called the firm, was remarkably humble, honest, and reassuring. From a person who was navigating the legal system for the first time, Ryan being able (and willing) to answer the phone for my family at 9:30 pm when I got arrested or calling me back in 30 minutes after I called the firm, showed me right away the Barone Defense Firm has one goal: client satisfaction. Patrick is also one of the most experienced attorneys around and his connections within the justice system PAY! Without Patrick and his prior professional experience with the prosecution in my case, there is almost no chance we would have gotten the results we did. Patrick was able to pull off an incredible feat and got the "best case scenario" plea deal that was initially very unlikely to happen. Then he got me the best sentence. He sent the judge a letter that had all my background information and he helped me find the best words for when I talked to the Judge at sentencing. Instead of possibly years in jail, I ended up with probation. I'd like to add that Patrick and his firm are very fair with their pricing methods. Often attorneys work on an hourly basis, but Patrick works on a flat rate, which means you don't have to ask yourself if it is "worth the money" to ask for more information or talk to him since it's all part of his upfront pricing. Patrick is a very responsive and attentive attorney who was always willing to answer any questions I had for him, which was very comforting while I was in a very stressful situation. Patrick has many years of experience in the legal system, which allows him to navigate the legal system and defend his clients with a level of expertise that few other attorneys could replicate. The past year has been by far the most stressful year for me and my family but having Patrick and his team on my side gave me the confidence and faith that I needed to make it to where I am today. Truly I am incredibly grateful for Patrick and his team and everything that he has done for me and my family. If I ever had to go through this again, there is no doubt that I would instantly hire Patrick. He really is just that good!

As I told you more than once, you are an amazingly confident, composed, articulate and intelligent young man. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I was also quite impressed with Ryan and the way he made himself available to you in your time of need. I am happy with the result in this case in that I was able to help secure your future. I believe you are going on to reach the highest levels of success, especially without the burden and the impediment of a criminal conviction!

The lawyer, that other lawyer's recommend
Patrick came highly recommended - a friend of the family DUI lawyer recommended me to another lawyer that "wrote the book on Mich DUI law". This "recommended lawyer" told me personally that if he had gotten a DUI on the east side of the state, he would hire Patrick Barone, and that "Patrick's probably the best DUI lawyer in the state". I don't know if you can get a higher recommendation than that. What pleasantly surprised me about Patrick is his character - additional to his superior competencies, wealth of knowledge, and experience- I felt his character best represented me personally. He's not some sleazy lawyer or your "better call Saul". Patrick is the legit legal consultant that you need if you are not messing around. No games, no bs. There's only so much that can be done, and with a DUI with some judges that is disappointing- but I do not regret paying a premium and hiring Patrick. I am confident I recieved the best legal advice and support available. I encourage you to make a similar choice and share that same confidence.

Response from Patrick Barone November 3, 2022
So funny, because I love Saul! Seriously though, the lawyer that referred you is one of the top lawyers in the State, so it was a great compliment that he referred you to me.Also, I was so happy we could get this awesome result in your case. The video of the breath test showed police error, and when I brought this to the prosecutor's attention, he agreed to make a great offer. The hardest part was selling it to the Judge. But we got around that too. Thanks for your kind words, and it was truly my pleasure to serve you.

Patrick Barone provide excellent representation
I would recommend Patrick Barone without hesitation. I was involved in a driving while impaired situation, which was both scary and disorienting given that I have never been in any previous trouble before in my life. I became calm and confident in the process through Patrick’s careful review of all facts pertaining to my individual case, discussion of the various possible outcomes and options going forward, and joint development of a going forward strategy. All of this was important to me. I was able to trust Patrick’s obvious expertise, rely on his candid assessments, and his patience to explain everything thoroughly, including answering my numerous questions. He left decision making up to me, but gave me the sound advice needed to come to the best decisions. I was confident in the preparation of my case by him and his firm being done very professionally, as well as his advocacy on my behalf. Actions by the court were never a surprise and usually well predicted by Patrick, and at the end of the process, I felt that we achieved the best possible outcome. Patrick is a great lawyer, but I also found him to be a decent person who gave me trusted representation and counsel.

Fantastic lawyer and person
Patrick and his firm were phenomenal in helping me navigate an out-of-state OWI case. He was not judgmental, made sure he was fully prepared at all times, and responded to my requests for more information or clarity with patience and kindness.

Every client faced with the awesome power of the government is intimidated by the system, and one of our goals is to help alleviate their trepidation, and that includes treating them with both patience and kindness. Of course it's all the easier when its reciprocated. Thanks for the review Nic!

Great valued experience
Patrick and his team are wonderful to work with. If you are considering the Barone defense firm I strongly recommend you spend the extra money to retain their services. In the long run, the cost of this representation outweighs the penalties our present government and judicial system can weigh against you. We all value our time on this earth. Although most legal situations take time to resolve themselves, Patrick and his team will methodically explore every option beneficial to your goals.

We hired Patrick recently to help our son who was facing complicated issue. We were worried about the case due to many unknowns. Patrick was very compassionate to us and assured us that he would do everything to resolve the issue. His knowledge of the law, his ability to put the clients at ease even in a difficult situation and his dedication helped us greatly. He successfully resolved the issue and helped us greatly. I highly recommend Patrick!

Was involved and engaged every step of the way. Very organized throughout.
After doing my research and consulting with several people I know within the industry, it became clear quickly that Patrick was the guy that I needed to represent me. From the time we started working together, Patrick had a plan/strategy. He was also very attentive and responsive to all my request and he was always well prepared in court. He knows every possible law related to OWI and DWI.

Hardest working DUI attorney of all time.
Right from the very beginning, Patrick Barone was honest, true to his word, and diligent about qualifying my case BEFORE he took the first dime. I am so used to attorneys that say they can move mountains just to get your money only to cower in the face of adversity. Patrick is a beast! He pressed and pressed the judge until he got our way! He is quick, concise, and worth every penny.

2nd DUI
I was arrested and charged with a 2nd DUI in oakland county summer 2019. While looking for a counsel I spend a lot of time weighting in the opportunity to retain a more expensive attorney. Throughout my case Patrick has provided me with excellent advice. He was able to obtain very favorable bond conditions (I didn’t have to pay a dime, I was able to go back to my home state), and I obtained a very favorable sentencing (I pleaded guilty) from a judge considered as the toughest in the oakland circuit court. At the court, everybody knows Patrick, from the clerk’s office, the probation department, to the judges who do listen to him. Bottom line, retaining Patrick was an excellent investment and money well spent. Being charged with a DUI (especially with a 2nd) is an extremely stressful experience and nothing is more frustrating than feeling you could have had a better outcome. Working with Patrick will guarantee that you get the best possible outcome and I couldn’t recommend him enough.

OWI - Civil Attorney
When I was arrested for Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), I thought my life was over. I knew Mr. Barone was an extremely reputable OWI attorney throughout the state of Michigan and the country, and so I called him for a consultation. When I met with Patrick, he immediately was able to console me, and assured me he would do everything that he could to obtain a positive result in my case. And he did. Throughout the process, Mr. Barone was readily available to answer my questions and provided extremely thorough and helpful responses and explanations. It is clear that he has an exceptionally extensive knowledge of the laws and legal process regarding OWI's, and it is also clear that he has solid and reciprocal relationships with the prosecutors. Perhaps most importantly for me, he also did a wonderful job of helping me personally and emotionally. I can say that, without a doubt, I am a better person since meeting him and having him help me. As an attorney myself, I can confidently state that he is one of the best trial attorneys I have ever met and worked with, and he will provide clients with the absolute best chance at obtaining a plea deal and/or winning at trial. I strongly recommend Mr. Barone to anyone who is dealing with a DUI/OWI. He will work extremely hard for you and will help you get your life back.

Outstanding!
Receiving a DWI is a traumatic experience. Your reputation and freedom is on the line so doing your research before hiring a defense lawyer is important. I scoured the internet looking for "The Best". Reading every review I could find. The Barone Defense Firm stood out and they delivered. Upon hiring them I had peace of mind that they would do whatever it took to get me the best possible outcome. Knowing you have a lawyer like this cannot be understated and cannot be given a price tag. I hope that I never have to go through an experience like this but Mr. Barone is worth every penny I paid. He is both a good man and an expert in the courtroom.
