Excellent Representation, Honest, Trustworthy and Knowledgeable
I hired Mr. Gibbs after meeting with a number of attorneys. I had both criminal and civil issues pending and needed representation. Mr. Gibbs was kind enough to schedule time to meet at the end of his day and was very professional and displayed a solid knowledge of the multiple court houses in Orange County. This was important as I was going to be dealing with cases in more than one court. Mr. Gibbs listened and took notes as I explained my upcoming hearings and the allegations that were being made. He asked appropriate questions and made sure he had a clear grasp on the issues before agreeing to handle my legal issues. He presented a number of realistic solutions and outcomes. He was very concise and straightforward when explaining the positive and negative aspects of the different possibilities and outcomes. Mr. Gibbs, over the course of nearly 2 years, kept in constant contact with updates and any new information or changes in the cases. During that time, Mr. Gibbs was always prepared and proactively kept himself up to date on any new information when presented. Each time we went to court, other attorneys would go out of there way to say hello to him and shake his hand (including DA's) and it was very apparent that he is well respected by his peers. Mr. Gibbs was very patient with me when I had a number of questions or tried to give my opinion on my legal issues. He would listen to what I had to say and either agree or politely disagree and explain why. His knowledge of the legal system is solid and he was able to handle the occasional "curve ball" thrown to us by opposing counsel and law enforcement. When our final court hearing was scheduled, he met with me prior to going into court, in order to review the case with me once more. He expressed his insight on the matters and I felt very confident in him. During the hearing, Mr. Gibbs was professional and never showed any sign of backing down. He was respectful to both the Judge and the opposing parties, but didn't let them get away with anything. He put up a solid effort and in the end... He was successful! I could not have asked for a better attorney to deal with this on my behalf. While I hope I never find myself in this position again, I would absolutely call Mr. Gibbs again for help. If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself needing legal help, Barney Gibbs is definitely the type of attorney that you want handling your case. Thank you Mr. Gibbs for your help. I truly appreciate your patience and guidance in this matter.
