Mr. Pokras was the 3rd attorney that represented me in a family court proceeding..
Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for both him, and his assistant Christine..
They both helped me achieve what I had been trying to accomplish with the other 2 attorneys I had previously had..
I know that all lawyers need to graduate from law school and then pass the bar in order to practice law, but that definitely doesn't mean that all attorneys are equal in their abilities..
Mr. Pokras is not only an amazing attorney, he is also an amazing person..
He listens to his clients, and doesn't make you feel like you are just another number..
He was always there when I needed to talk to him, and I never felt like I was bothering him..
He truly loves what he does, and because of that, he will fight for his clients every step of the way..
If I ever need a family attorney again, there would be no question as to who I would call..
Thank you Mr. Pokras..For everything you did for my family..

I found Barton after almost a decade of malicious "legal abuse" surrounding child custody and the failure of 6 other attorneys.
Barton not only understood the psychopathology involved, he outsmarted it without resorting to underhanded tactics and was amazingly supportive as a human being.
He understands people, knows the law inside and out, and is tremendously well respected on the community.
I recommend him without question.

Barton Pokras was the 5th family law attorney I had hired. He stood by me through a long and complicated trial and helped me to receive the exact custody and parenting plan I had been seeking. Following an extensive custodial evaluation which recommended a severe limitation on my parental rights, Mr. Pokras was able to convince the court to grant me the equal co-parenting rights I had sought from the beginning. He was careful with expenses without compromising the level of service, which was better than what I had ever received from any other attorney.
Mr. Pokras is an extremely intelligent man of true integrity. In a hard fought case it was always clear to me that the opposing counsel afforded him the greatest respect. He really listened to what I had to say, understood my deepest concerns, and wisely counseled me throughout. He has been absolutely wonderful to me and I can’t thank him enough. I highly recommend Barton Pokras to anyone in need of a great family law attorney.

Barton is a wonderful human being to have in your corner through a tumultuous and emotional divorce proceeding. Before hiring Barton I asked him to keep the focus on my daughter's future interests, and not get distracted by the emotional roller coaster. He did just that~! My daughter's future was preserved as I intended thanks to Barton's perseverance and patience through the proceedings. I highly recommend Barton.

Mr. Pokras and his staff are second to none. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful on a legal as well as a personal level. Barton exceeded all of my expectations as my divorce attorney. In a case that can only be described as "difficult", his professional demeanor and patience with the other party was a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Mr. Pokras to anyone seeking legal counsel in relation to a divorce or separation.

Barton Pokras was the first Attorney who actually listened to me and took the time to understand what was truly going on with my custody matter. He was professional, kind, and really cared about what happened with my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney with experience and integrity.

Barton not only led me through the divorce process in a professional and timely manner, he acted as my "armchair psychologist" - allowing me to vent and cry on his shoulder. He and his wife even attended my second wedding, one year later!
I also had Barton prepare my Trust, giving me excellent advice along the way.

I utilized the services of Pokras Law as a preliminary step in my divorce process. While Barton didn't ultimately negotiate the settlement, he was integral in setting me on the right path. I would recommend him and his staff for any couple who are suited to the arbitration process.

After my ex-spouse made a custody change without discussing with me, I contacted Mr. Pokras.He immediately understood the urgency of my case, had paperwork complete the same night and a court hearing for early the following week. Not that there are winners/losers in family court, but with Mr. Pokras' help we were 3 for 3. I was amazed (after the fact) to find out how well known he is and more importantly how well respected he is by judge's and staff in Ventura County. What I liked most was he listened to me, allowed me to proceed without mudslinging and just went above and beyond.

Barton Pokras was, and is, a God send! He was highly professional, remarkably proficient in the law and all its nuances, and persistently resolved in achieving what was equitable with incredibly creativeness, especially in the courtroom. Yet never did I once feel like another revenue client. Mr. Pokras called me often just to see how I was doing....on HIS time. His incredible wisdom, patience and counseling regarding my emotions and situation have proved invaluable. And along with his sincere compassion for me as a person, he shattered the perceived mold of a typical lawyer. Although I did not want the divorce, Mr. Pokras kept the painful event to a minimum by finalizing the divorce in 4 1/2 months from the time I retained him. As a skilled mediator, I highly recommend Mr. Pokras to anyone who wants justice to prevail...and a rock to hold on to.
