I hired Mr. barry to help me with my pressing legal matters. These matters have been weighing on me for a number of years. The walls were definitely closing in. I didn't know what to expect. I have never had to deal with any real legal matters in my life. " I'm pretty sure Pete knew I was on autopilot." I had nothing to fear. Pete was the man I needed in my corner. Long story short. He's give me a new walk in life . Thanks Pete

Pete was incredible! From the beginning until the end, he was professional, informative and friendly. He explained everything in a way that made it all easy to understand and we felt calm and totally confident under his wing.
He resolved our judgement debt case in around a week, after we had been trying to deal with the debt collector ourselves for years without any resolution! He really knows what he is doing and he does it well and with ease. We highly recommend hiring him for your debt collection problems. We couldn't have had a better experience and we are just thrilled with the end result. Thanks to Pete for being so good at what he does!!!!!

I contacted Mr. Barry for a consultation. Despite there not being a case that he would suggest hiring his services for, he still took the time to help me out. Mr. Barry was knowledgable and provided excellent advice on how to approach my case in small claims court. He sent me information on similar cases and even suggested how to word some things.
He went above and beyond. If this is the type of information and service he can provide on a consultation, I can only imagine how diligent and invested he would become in a paid case.
5/5 Would recommend to friends and family.

There is no one in the country who will dedicate more time, who will have as much experience, who will fight as hard as Pete Barry on your consumer law case. I have watched as Pete has turned people's lives around; people who were trapped under mounds of debt with no end in sight, people who have been abused by debt collectors, people who truly needed help. Pete has come to the rescue time and time again; he has helped thousands and thousands of consumers. Pete is the perfect combination of aggressive, passionate, ethical, and generous. He genuinely wants to impact every life he touches. I am a better person and a much better lawyer for having known and been trained by Pete Barry. There is no one like him. If you need legal help, he should be your first call.
