Mr Barbosa helped me a lot. Without him my divorce could take longer. He answers promptly to my emails.
He given me good advice and assisted me on every aspect in my divorce process. I think price was right and affordable. I recommend him to anybody who need a good divorce attorney.

I contacted attorney Roland Barbosa after one of my work colleagues highly recommended him for a divorce case. He was not at his office when I contacted him. However, his legal assistant, I believe her name is Marie, talked to me about 20 minutes telling me about the divorce process and details about what I should expect going thru a divorce. I have no children; however, my husband and I have accumulated a lot of retirement funds and rental properties. I left my number and email address. Roland contacted me later that day regarding my situation. He was so experienced in these type of matters. I was so comfortable telling him about my situation. He was so patient listening to my story. I never expected a high profile attorney to be so patient with a potential client. After listening patiently to me for over 30 minutes, he explained in detail what would have to be filed and what to expect in Court. I never expected an attorney to take so much of his time to go over all the details of my case. I had called other lawyers but they never called me back. The one that did call me back, took 2 minutes talking to me. He then told me I needed $500 to go in to speak with him. Mr. Barbosa is really a peoples' lawyer! I hired Mr. Barbosa. He was not the cheapest lawyer I had spoke with. But in the end, it was worth it to have such a professional, experienced, courteous and very well dressed attorney on my side. THANK YOU MR. BARBOSA...I WILL NEVER FORGET WHAT YOU DID FOR ME!

The Law Office of Roland Barbosa provided excellent guidance and services during my divorce. I decided to contact Roland Barbosa after reading some wonderful reviews about him online. I must admit— I was absolutely sure about choosing Barbosa Family Law, P. C. to represent me in the court. After all, all his reviews proved his credibility and experience. Thankfully, he didn’t disappoint and turned out to be an extremely professional and knowledgeable attorney.

After my experience with Roland, I can say without a doubt that Barbosa Law Firm is the best deal anyone can get. They are so different than your law firm who only want your money! They provide excellent and expert legal consultation for a reasonable fee. I only needed legal advice and Roland managed to come up with the best options in a single meeting! If it had been my ex-lawyer, it surely would have taken us at least 3-4 sessions to reach the same conclusion.

My life today would have been very different if it wasn’t for Attorney Roland Barbosa who fought and won my alimony case for me. I had previously contacted his office but waited to initiate my case. I spoke with other lawyers but was not impressed by what they told me. Choosing Mr. Barbosa as my divorce attorney was probably one of the best decisions of my life as the entire case could not have gone any better.

Roland helped me get through perhaps what was the most difficult time of my life. When I first considered divorcing my partner, I was hopelessly clueless and did not know a single thing about it. Honestly, the mere idea of going through the entire legal process was terrifying. Lucky for me, a friend suggested Barbosa Family Law, P.C.
From the first meeting at his home-office to the day my divorce was finalized, Roland handled every minor detail of my divorce. At every point, he made sure I understand my options and take the right decisions. Contrary to how I initially imagined the legal process, everything went smoothly in a timely manner. Also, 5 stars for his professionalism!
I must say, Roland Barbosa is great at what he does. I would totally suggest Barbosa Family Law, P.C. to anyone going through this ordeal. Best of luck!

He was quick, efficient, and friendly. He knows how to run things. During my meeting with Mr. Barbosa, he was prepared, professional, and everything was smooth. I had a positive experience and will highly recommend to my family and friends.

Mr Barbosa took his time and listened and offered very good advice based on his 25+ years of practice. He told me that he continues to practice because he really enjoys helping people navigate thru the toughest time of their life. Roland was very upfront about costs and did many things pro bono, such as meeting with me on the spur of the moment, forwarding emails, making copies, Etc.. Roland always charged me as little as possible as I was on a budget. He met me at the court house at 7AM to finalize my Divorce despite having an over seas vacation scheduled the very next day, his professionalism combined with his personal concern for you is outstanding. Marylin his assistant was very helpful and made me feel like part of the Family. I thank God every day for his guidance and placing Roland in my life. I am fore ever grateful. Thank you very much for everything you have done for me, Bless you

I'm a family court veteran. Been twice before and granted Primary custody in 2004 and 2008.
My estranged wife served me for child support after 6 years of separation,.I knew what I needed in my representation.
Attorneys are a resource like a tool used to accomplish a vision. As a Father's Rights advocate, I hear hundreds of stories from other fathers who are not pleased with their attorney and the results of the case. I understand that in Family Court, nothing is guaranteed. I still did my due diligence and after talking to two other attorneys, I arranged a contract with Mr. Barbosa based on the criteria outlined above.
Initial Consult - I honestly don't remember if it cost me anything. I knew ahead of time that this moment would come so I had savings for half of it. We met for an hour, I gave him the back story, all the current data and evidence to support my case as Primary Caretaker and discussed my strategy. He made some high level recommendations and outlined my best approach based on the initial consult. I liked that and based on the hour we talked, I measured he was a very smart person I could trust to handle at least the initial hearing.
What Roland did was amazing. Dropping the formalities to get through this review.
He seized on the strength of my case after our first meeting and made the biggest modification for me... I was seeking 50/50 (though for the entirety of my children's lives, they were with me 70% of the time with me as the primary caretaker) and no CS. He convinced me to modify my case to request more than 50/50 because I could have been awarded the 50/50 and STILL forced to pay child support. My ex had presented statements to the court that I had not taken care of my children for two years!! The AG, without any evidence of that, was pushing super aggressively to take money from me and put me $50K into arrears!!! Roland was able to block that.
Roland helped me understand the true strengths of my case and we created a strategy to drive that to a successful court hearing where I was granted Primary caretaker where the ex-wife only received 10-12 days monthly. About what it had been in reality.
The piece that broke the case. Roland is very personable in court. He does not incite animosity from the opposition and works well with them to try creating a win/win scenario. In this case though, my ex had two attorneys on her team. In a move that pretty much broke the case open for my favor, Roland, quick witted and thinking on his feet, took an item of data and got my ex to testify to it, though she probably didn't have to do so. This particular item was key because it showed her amount of finances reported were in question. Based on this, the judge recalculated her reported income to a more realistic amount.
Roland was very attentive to me, meeting with me hours before our case was to be heard to ensure I was calm and understood court protocol and answered any last minute questions I had before entering court.
We agreed on flat fee instead of hourly billing, as my experience with other fathers shows they felt "robbed" of their finances by the entire process, including their attorneys. He has a schedule of costs that allow you to clearly determine what each item will cost.
I could go on about him. I did at times express some doubts to him about what he was doing to drive my case... I'm a veteran at this so I would poke and prod him every now and then to get a reaction. My favorite response from him was his reiteration of how much experience he has at this. It's true. He may look like he is not being super aggressive at times, but that is all part of the strategy. A calm mind surgically dissecting the situation.
