If you're faced with a DUI, no one will fight harder and smarter than Mr. Barba. He is phenomenal, and the absolute best at his trade; "Not Guilty" on a DUI involving Blood.
Very seldom in life we're faced with challenges that can shape our future in a big way. When faced with a first time DUI Charge, I quickly found out the havoc a DUI can have on my Family, Finances, Job, and Future Aspirations. In all honesty, please take a DUI charge very seriously, even a first time DUI; this is a career ending charge for many people.
Even though the DA was very aware that an Alcohol related charge (DUI) would end my career, the DA didn't care. Moving forward with the Trial was the best decision I could have made. Mr Barba took a very tough case and completely demolished any leverage the DA had. During a very hard fought 1 week trial, the DA tried every trick in the book to convict, without any success. Mr. Barba fought incredibly hard on every point and didn't leave any stone unturned. I have a high amount of respect for people that take their trade seriously, and Mr Barba is an absolute expert in DUI - At many times, he left the Government "Expert" witnesses fumbling for words, destroying their credibility.
With the help of a highly skilled lawyer like Mr. Barba, I was acquitted of the DUI charge and my name is clear! "Not Guilty"..the best two words I could hear!
I've definitely learned that Drinking and Driving is simply not worth it; in this process I've had the privilege of meeting a great man like Mr. Manual Barba who fought so very hard for my future.
I owe my future to you Mr. Barba; from the bottom of my heart, Myself and My Family are eternally grateful.

Mr. Barba is an amazing attorney. I’ve had previous attorneys in Los Angeles represent me but they do not compare to the work ethic and dedication Attorney Manuel Barba has for his clients. Mr. Barba, along with his team, provided me with a sense of comfort from the moment I decided to hire him to represent me. I primarily chose Mr. Barba because of his Forensic Scientist-Lawyer background and was able to see firsthand his experience and how knowledgeable and effective he is in trial because of that.
The trial lasted a little over two weeks and could not have gotten through it without Mr. Barba. He’s an expert in DUI defense. He’s able to see things in the case that I did not even think were possible. He is highly knowledgeable in the analysis of blood that it puts the DA’s experts to shame. You know you have a great attorney representing you when even the DA compliments his work.
Mr. Barba’s representation and defense exceeded my expectations as he relentlessly fought for me in court. The trial resulted in a hung jury. I thank him for all his guidance and support and would highly recommend him to anyone in need of DUI defense.

Attorney Barba is an experienced trial advocate. He has the necessary reputation, knowledge, experience and guts needed to defend those accused of a crime. He has earned a national reputation for his years of successful advocacy. Most of all, I trust him. I know you will too.

Mr. Barba is one of the new breeds of lawyers known as the lawyer-scientist. When defending a person accused of driving under the influence it is imperative that the lawyer have a deep understanding of the science behind blood and breath testing. Very few lawyers spend the time necessary to be a lawyer-scientist. Mr. Barba has and does. You are in good hands with Mr. Barba representing you on an alcohol related charge.
