License Restoration Expert
I had 5 DUI's, multiple Driving While Suspended, and went at least 25 years without a license. Jason guided me in the right direction and successfully restored my driving privileges in Circuit Court. My life has completely changed. None of my latest success would be possible without Jason's expertise. Follow his Plan. He'll get you Results.

Excellent Lawyer!
Jason helped me out after I got hurt in an auto accident. He was able to collect the maximum amount of compensation for me, which I'm very grateful for after having to deal with the injury, having to my auto insurance company, and then all of the trouble of replacing my car. Jason charged less than I expected, was easy to reach whenever needed, and kept me well informed as everything progressed. I was really mad after the accident, but Jason handled the whole process and got me the best outcome! By the way, I was referred to him by a friend of mine who Jason helped with an OUIL (he got the case dropped!). When you have a legal problem, call Jason Barrix!

Very Positive Experience! -
Jason Barrix is a great attorney who is very thorough, and he ensures his clients are well-prepared. I had two DUIs several years ago and was ready to try getting my full driving privileges restored. I knew it would be a long and tiring process, but Jason was great at communicating, and it actually went very smoothly because of his dedication to my case. I was recently granted my fulIy restored driving privileges, and it wasn't the headache I thought it was going to be. l would highly recommend him to anyone who has been convicted of a driving offense, or anything else for that matter. You will not be disappointed!

Motorcycle accident/ leaving the scene
Jason barrix is hands the best in the business. Very nice guy who accommodates your needs and gives you answers all along thr way. I had a rider fall off my motorcycle and left the scene because I didn't have an indorcement. However I did leave the victim with two of my close freinds and called for an ambulance before leaving. Later in court they tried hitting me with a 5 year felony and 2 year jail sentence. Jason got the whole case dropped because he knows the law. He even proved my passenger was Intoxicated and lieing about false Injurys. Later Jason helped me beat a dui case where I slept in my truck in a bar parking Lot with it running in the winter. (Which I did use my vehicle for shelter) and didn't want to drive being I was drunk. That case was also dropped at 7pm that night by a email from. The judge/prosecutor. Hes two for two. Highly recommend. Both cases dropped. Knows the statue laws Stuff happens, Jason will be there for you along the way.

Review for Jason Barrix
Jason Barrix was terrific. I have never needed a lawyer and do not know much about the process of being charged with an offense. I didn’t try to contact Jason until the morning of my arraignment. I left a message him at 8 am and my arraignment was at 10 am. He returned my call within a half hour and was present for the zoom call at 10 am. Jason was great about explaining things to me about my case and what to do and the next step in the process. He took extra care to assure me that it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was and that everything would be fine. He also took extra steps to help me know I would be ok with my employer. I will absolutely recommend Jason to anyone I know who may need a lawyer in the future. Thank you so much Jason!

I have hired Jason Barrix on a few occasions and he is dedicated to his clients. I was on parole for utter and publishing and caught a felony utter and publishing while on parole and he got me jail time, didn’t give up. My last experience retaining him I thought I wasn’t guilty of the charges but Jason knows the details of the law due to his passion for the law. He told me straight up how it is that I will be found guilty it might not be fair given the circumstances of the case but he was straightforward with me. Jason will show up to court on your behalf without you there when the when the courts allow it, I missed a court date that Jason insisted I had to appear at but I had the flu and somehow he did what he did and a warrant wasn’t put out for my arrest luckily, I do not recommend ever missing court. Jason couldn’t appear with me before the judge on my one year misdemeanor, he got the second offense domestic violence dropped, so he had another lawyer show up on my behalf that believes in doing everything he can for his clients like him and I received 30 days jail no probation with a record of six felonies and twenty misdemeanors, that being said I highly recommended retaining Jason Barrix if you are in a situation which you need a criminal defense or personal injury attorney!

Jason and his legal team go above and beyond !
Jason was recommended to me from a family member. He met with me on a weekend. After we discussed my case, and he went through every detail I was impressed and I hired him. That was a very wise decision. Even after sentencing Jason is still there for me during the rebuilding phase. He is a man of Integrity, and I highly recommend him. He is not only available day or night, but for life :)

Best lawyer around!
Jason Barrix is very professional. I was charged with OWI, and he got it dropped down to impaired, with only six months probation. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a lawyer! Thank you Mr. Barrix!

BEST DUI Attorney in Michigan!
From what I've heard about other lawyers, they just want to charge you a bunch of money and help you plead. Jason will actually fight for your rights. If you get charged with DUI, it's a very scary situation. Having Jason handle everything and actually fight for my rights made all the difference!
Posted by Robb | November 30, 2014
Do you want someone that actually listens and cares about you?
Jason isn't like other lawyers I've worked with. He actually cared about me and wanted to make sure that I was happy with the results. I was impressed with every aspect of my dealings with Jason Barrix!
