When the time came to retire and close the business I had nurtured for thirty-five year, I turned to Trisha to help me navigate through the process of dissolving the corporation. Her assistance was both invaluable and reassuring. Not a quick process, Trisha shepherded me over the next several years for which I will always be profoundly grateful.

Excellent Labor & Employment Attorney
Trisha is a colleague in the same area of law as I practice up in New York State. I look to her for brainstorming and analysis on complex issues. She is always interested in new developments in the law and has a sophisticated yet understandable way of conveying information. Her legalskinny podcast, for example, is excellent! I am grateful to Trisha for being a reputable, reliable practitioner who I can rely on and exchange ideas with to support clients across the country.

Excellent Employment Law Presentation!
I invited Trisha Barita to be a part of a monthly business education and networking event to provide information about 1099s vs. employees. She did an amazing job explaining employment law to the audience and engaging us with relevant case studies/examples. I look forward to engaging with her again as a presenter!

On more than one occasion I have used the services of Trisha Barita regarding business legal issues. She is forthright in her approach to all matters. She is educated in the latest changes in the law. A very important commodity in today’s highly competitive business world. She is an excellent advisor regarding documentation for LLC’s. As well as her hands-on approach in assisting with items like employee handbooks, disciplinary actions and forms, and all matters concerning workmen’s comp. There are many issues that can make or break a company if not handled right. She is a person you want in your corner when it comes to making critical decisions that can impact your company for the long run. I highly recommend her.

I have worked with Trisha on several non-profit boards and her work has always been excellent. Very forth coming with legal standards and advise. She has kept the organizations on the right legal path and her counsel has been first rate. On my present board we hired her 2 weeks before we had some severe issues confront the organization. She gave great legal advise and helped the organization to weather the storm. We couldn't have done it without her.

The Best Business Attorney to hire.
Ms Trisha Keough Barita with Barita & Keough Law Firm is by far the best Law Attorney we have yet to hire to represent our business. We hired Ms. Keough several years ago and we have been pleased with how she has handled all our legal issues. Her passion and commitment to her clients speaks for itself. Thank you for taking care of all our legal needs. We appreciate all that you have done for our company. We highly recommend this Law firm.
