Worth every penny
I had an extremely high conflict divorce. During the nearly year long nightmare, Barre went above and beyond in handling my case. While my ex was largely able to isolate my young children from me for the entire divorce, in the end my young children got a better parenting plan than was recommended by the PRE and it will ramp up to 50/50. I only wish my ex had hired a competent lawyer, as her lawyer made things far worse than just the malicious behavior of my ex did.

Barre was a life saver - literally!
I have a very high-conflict post-divorce situation involving my vulnerable children. My family and I call Barre, "our Super hero." Barre is a human being first with a heart of gold for children and families. As I was a wreck, Barre "cut to the chase" and helped me navigate a very emotionally difficult situation. My daughter was on death's door. By listening to Barre, we won EVERYTHING in court. My daughter is alive and thriving. Unbelievable to me given the fire power of my ex and his willingness to lie and use my kids as pawns. I would not want to play against Barre in a game of chess, but having him on my team was life saving. I am forever grateful to Barre and his partner, Amy for giving me my daughter her life back, my sanity back and renewed sense that no matter what, LOVE and TRUTH (with Barre as my attorney) will win!!

Highly recommend!
I have worked with several different attorneys over the last 10 years dealing with parenting and post-divorce issues. Barre has been the best by far. He is level-headed, strategic, informative and a good communicator. He will tell you like it is in his experience, give you options, solid advice and is aggressive when necessary. It is also clear that he does not need to "pad my bill" by trying to stir up unnecessary billable hours. He has advised me on best, and least-expensive options. I highly recommend him.

Endorse Barre
Family Attorney | Aug 31

"I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Barre as a mediator, and against him as opposing counsel, and have always found him to be tough, knowledgable and honest. He knows when to fight, and when to settle cases. He and his wife, Amy, are a great team and I can't recommend them highly enough."
Criminal defense Attorney | Dec 21
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Barre Sakol is legit. He is a seasoned defender of the accused and it shows. In his courtroom demeanor, trial skills, strong relationships with others, and knowledge of the law - it's clear he's one of the best. Highly recommend."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I whole heartedly endorse, Barre. I've Known Barre for approximately 10 years and find him easily one of the most intelligent attorneys I know but also, and this what I believe separates Barre from the "rest of the pack," is his "approachability" and ever-present willingness to help while at the same time, being no shrinking violet. Barre is as tough as he is intelligent, approachable, thoughtful and dedicated to serving each and every one of his clients with his "A" game no matter the odds, obstacles or steepness of any uphill climb. If ever charged with a crime, I don't hesitate in saying Barre would be one the first to whom I would turn, knowing my interests are not mere papers in a file, but instead, a human being who is need of help in and often against the legal system."
