Great firm that got me the maximum settlement possible
When I was in a bad accident due to the negligence of the other driver, I didn’t know who to call to help me deal with the process of replacing my totaled vehicle and getting the medical bills paid. I was referred to the Barber Law Firm by a friend. From the first contact with them to the last, they were attentive to details and fought for me against the insurance company who was trying to lowball their offer. Emails and calls to the firm were always responded to in a quick manner, and the tons of questions I had throughout the process were always answered and explained. When the insurance finally settled, I received the policy maximum which was significantly higher than what the insurance initially had offered. I wouldn’t hesitate to use the firm again if needed, and would happily refer any friends as well.

Drunk driving accident
I hired the Barber law firm and that was the best decision I ever made. The whole team was very communicative, followed up, and broke everything down for me from start to finish. I could not have asked for a better team.

Kristopher Shane Barber - The Barber Law Firm
I was given two different firms for my case and after reviewing their websites I chose The Barber Law Firm. I was so impressed with their staff and the handling of my case. They were always in contact, explained each step, and were always available to answer questions. They made me feel that they had my best interests at heart. Their ability to negotiate a higher settlement amount was exceptional. I highly recommend The Barber Law Firm when looking for an attorney.

The Barber law firm was so helpful to me after our terrible auto accident. They took care of the details of collecting information and filing paperwork so I could focus on my medical care. They also took the time along the way to explain the process. Lori Sierra was always so patient and informative and caring during out check in calls. I am thankful to have had the help of Barber Law Firm.

So much help... both times!
The Barber Law Firm has handled 2 of my insurance settlement claims now, both involving car accidents that resulted in spinal injuries for me and they have done an amazing job. They are always available and respond to my questions promptly, and they have secured substantial settlements on my behalf. I'm extremely grateful for everything they've done for me the past seceral years.

Best decision I made
After being hit by a drunk driver, I was referred to the Barber Law Firm and I’m so glad that I hired them. I never felt alone. They answered all of my questions, and I always felt like I knew what was going on in my case. Terisa was wonderful to work with. She helped this process go smoothly for me. Thank you, Barber Law Firm.

Best Decision to have you as my law firm while going through trauma related to auto accident
I approached the Babar Law Firm based on extensive online search and decided on The Babar Law Firm after carefully reviewing multiple other law firms. It was the best decision I took. The Babar Law Firm provided guidance and full disclosure up front when we approached them after three of my family members were seriously injured in a road accident involving a speeding vehicle jumping the red light. It was a very traumatic and stressful period for us. Jared Mullowney along with Michele Buenfil, Andrew Strong and Roxann Knapp formed a formidable legal team to pursue our case in the best professional way. The Babar Law Firm kept us informed at each step of the process and never over-promised or tried to do a “sales job”. The approach of the firm was to put our needs ahead of everything else in terms of getting medical and rehabilitation support for the injured family members. The at-fault motorist was neither cooperative nor had adequate coverage. The team at Babar Law Firm handled the situation very professionally bringing their decades of experience to fight and prevail. On top of the legal aspects, The Babar Law Firm also contacted and negotiated with various hospitals and medical service providers to manage the medical bills. In the end not only all our medical bills were covered but the injured family members were also reasonably compensated for the pain and suffering. While our lives have been permanently affected by the trauma, it is also enriched by knowing that there are indeed such professional law firms around that will stand with you and for you if you have been wronged for no fault of yours.

Not only was I updated the entire process. The team would answer all my repeating questions when I did not recall the previous information between time periods of updates. They did everything and more to help me during this difficult time I was experiencing.

Goes beyond to help clients
Rehabilitation was winding down and insurance company would no longer pay for services, but I still needed physical therapy. Mr. Barber found about the situation and found solution working with Doctors to complete the additional physical therapy I needed. He went above and beyond for this client, which I am grateful for and would highly recommend his services, because he cares about his clients and handled the settlement quickly.

Very thorough
It was a long process, but they were extremely diligent in keeping up with all of the moving parts, and keeping me in the loop on where we were in progress. Collecting bills for my medical expenses took a long time (due to difficulties with the other companies) but they continued trying well past the time I would have expected. Everyone who's talked to me has been really kind, and willing to explain anything if I didn't understand.

With regard to the handling of my case and Lori Sierra!
Just would like to take a few minutes to point out a stand out. Lori Sierra was outstanding in helping navigate the intricacies of an esoteric and complex world. Her ability to make these complexities understandable and easy to digest made what could have been tiresome and tedious; just easier.

If you are lucky enough to have Kris handle your case, you are not only getting the very best, you are getting an attorney that care about your outcome and your well being completely aside from whatever fee he may earn. My wife and I watched him try a lawsuit where the opposing counsel took some personal shots at the Plaintiff. Kris stood and DESTROYED the other side with a calm confidence that had to be seen to be believed. Of course, the jury voted for Kris and his client. Don't hesitate to hire this top quality attorney."

Our collaberation resulted in a significant recovery for the young man. Kris is a talented, creative and aggressive Trial Lawyer and I look forward to having the opportunity to work with him again. I highly endorse Kris."

"I first met Kris Barber when I was appointed ad litem attorney on a wrongful death case he was handling for the surviving child. He demonstrated competence, professionalism, and a zeal for his client. I have known him for several years, and know his reputation to be excellent. I can, and do, unhesitatingly recommend him as plaintiff's counsel in the personal injury and malpractice areas."

"I have had the privilege to personally work with Kris on numerous matters and have known Kris for almost 8 years. I have come to admire and respect Kris for his intellect and incredible work ethic. I have worked with and referred complicated cases to Kris and look forward to doing so again. Simply put, Kris would be the first person I would call if I were in need of an attorney."
Personal injury Attorney | Oct 30
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have referred cases directly to Kris and I have worked with Kris on several cases. I have watched him help people involved in minor fender-benders with relatively minor injuries, and I have seen him help those with serious life-threatening injuries that at a minimum will forever change their lives. There is no doubt that every single case is important to him and receives the same consideration, analysis and effort as any other - his best. He truly seeks the best strategy for each situation, often mulling over the alternatives, trying to stay two moves ahead of his opposition. I have referred cases to many personal injury attorneys over the last ten years, but nobody can match the results of Kris Barber. His superior knowledge and methodical preparation, in addition to his ability to connect with juries, are the keys to his success. If I ever need a personal injury attorney for myself or a family member, Kris will be the first person I call."
Personal injury Attorney | Oct 21
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"I met Kris when he represented a woman who sued my client. From the start, Kris was assertive, professional, creative, and very intelligent about the way he handled his client's case. As I got to know Kris better, it was clear that he is ethical and that he puts a great deal of energy and thought into which approach will work best on any given case. He is flexible enough to change strategy when he needs to and smart enough to know when that moment comes. He genuinely cares about providing his clients with the best representation possible and obtaining excellent results on their behalf. I do not hesitate to recommend Kris to people who are looking for a personal injury attorney."
Personal injury Attorney | Oct 09
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Kris for over ten years. He is the most hard-working and intelligent attorney I know. When my sister needed a personal injury attorney, I did not hesitate referring her to Kris. He took excellent care of her, as I knew he would. If I ever needed an attorney to fight for me or another family member, I would immediately call Kris."
Personal injury Attorney | Oct 07

"Kris and I overlap in areas of law as well as in geography. As a result, we refer each other clients when we think one case might be a better for fit for the other at the time. When I refer a client to Kris, I do so with complete confidence they will be working closely with a caring and competent attorney unafraid to do what is right to secure justice."
