DUI
I hired Tina Barberi to handle my DUI case. I totaled my car from hitting a curb. The officers took over an hour or 2 to respond to my accident. After a bunch of court appearances, the charges against me were dismissed because Tina fought really hard to win my case. I was never convicted of my DUI and I am so happy with my results. I will definitely refer her to my family and friends.

Best defense lawyer in Fresno
My father had a case hanging over him for years that Tina was able to over turn, her defense was strategic and remarkable. I’ve never seen a lawyer so efficient, i was proud to have her by our side and am forever grateful for her services.

Dismissal
My husband had a minor traffic violation, VC 21453(c), red arrow turn violation, so I contacted Ms. Barberi’s office in regard to the citation. She charged us a reasonable and fair price. We never had to worry if something wasn’t taken care of. She even notified us by mail of the upcoming court dates and the outcome of his case which was dismissed with no fine and no point on my husband’s driving record. I would recommend her to anyone else fighting traffic cases because they tell you everything upfront and explain what they can and cannot do for you.

Tina is a Great Traffic Lawyer!
Thank you, Tina for all your hard work. Tina really took the time to listen to my needs and concerns regarding my traffic tickets. She helped me get my driver’s license and cleared up a lot of old tickets. I did not know what I was going to do because the court and DMV kept giving me the runaround. She is an excellent lawyer and she works harder than any other attorney in town. I recommend using her if you ever need help with a traffic ticket or need your driver’s license.

Great DUI and Traffic Lawyer - Calling Tina is a Must!
Tina Barberi made me feel so much better after I talked to her about my DUI and suspended license cases. She took the time to not only listen to me, but she explain all my options. She worked very hard even when I had a very difficult case. I am very happy with the results I received from her and her firm. I recommend her to anyone that is charged with a crime because she is extremely well-prepared and dedicated to helping you.

Hiring Tina Barberi is a MUST!
I just wanted to take a moment and thank Tina Barberi and her law firm for all the help they gave my husband when he got a DUI. Her dedication to his case made all the difference. He was charged with a DUI and he would have lost his job if he was convicted. The officer said his seat belt was not on and pulled him over. Tina went out of her way to investigate the site of arrest, the vehicle and the location of the officer to show that the officer pulled him over for no reason. She got his DUI case dismissed and thrown out of court. He never even had to appear. When he was first arrested, I was so scared because I did not know where to turn. I will always use and refer anyone that has a DUI or traffic case because she will do what it takes to get the results you need. I know that not all cases can get dismissed, but if you have a chance it is with this attorney! She really cares for her clients and that made all the difference.

Tina Barberi is an Excellent Attorney
I have been a client for Tina Barberi for over numerous years. She is an excellent attorney and receives great results for her client, including my cases. She is superb criminal and DUI defense attorney, and has been able to get hundreds of clients their licenses when they had no hope ever getting their license back. She fights for her clients and she never gives up even when the cases are difficult. The help she gives clients far exceeds other attorneys. She obtains results that most other attorneys are not able to achieve because she has a good reputation with the judges and attorneys in the Central Valley. Her clients are always pleased with the individualized attention they receive and the results she obtains. If you are looking for a criminal, DUI, or traffic attorney, you are in good hands when you hire Tina.

Best Criminal and DUI Attorney in Fresno
Tina is a very smart and dedicated attorney to her clients. She was able to get my case dismissed and I never went to court. Her reputation of getting cases dismissed sure helped me. She is a responsible lawyer and always kept me informed on my case. She even helped me on another matter and I never received any having points on my DMV record. She is very trustworthy and knowledgeable on criminal and traffic matters. I recommend Tina Barberi to anyone with criminal, DUI, or traffic issues .

Great DUI Attorney- Very Helpful
Mrs. Barberi was very helpful when I needed someone to help me with my DUI charge. She helped me understand what was going on with the charge that was placed against me. Because of her knowledge and understanding of the law, she was about to get my charge reduced. I am very thankful that I was able to have her representation in court.

Great DUI and Criminal Attorney
I told Ms. Barberi that I was guilty of the DUI and I was willing to take the punishment, but she told me she could do better. She got my entire case dismissed because she showed the Prosecutor that there was not enough evidence to convict me.

Great Attorney!
Ms. Barberi helped me with a dui. She went to court for me and helped me get my license back sooner than I thought. I was very scared when I first got my dui. After talking with Ms. Barberi I was able to relax a little, and feel better about the trouble I was in. She is a great attorney! I am so Glad I hired her to represent me.

She Made All the Difference in the World
My son got a DUI and was terrified of punishment. She calmed him down with the very first meeting. She believed in him and helped him get the charges reduced. He is young and just starting out. He got the break he wanted and Tina saved him at least $1000 not to mention the reduced punishment. We are both very pleased and recommend her. Many others lawyers wanted to charge more and promised less.

Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"I have great pleasure in endorsing Tina. I was very fortunate to have worked for Tina where I was able to learn from one of the greatest and brightest attorney in the Central Valley. I got to know and respect Tina, who is very, very experienced in our world of criminal defense. If you have been accused of a serious crime in the Central Valley, you will want Tina Barberi in your corner. Tina is one of the top lawyers in the Central Valley courts. She is extremely knowledgeable and Effective. Tina has the respect of her peers and the courts.

Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 19
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"When I was just a student, Tina Barberi came to me and gave me an opportunity to work with her on writing motions. It was a great chance for me to not only begin networking, but to learn more about being a lawyer. Over the years since then, I have had the opportunity to observe her in court, and to watch her interacting with her clients. I know that she is a caring attorney who will fight for her clients."
Criminal defense Attorney | Jan 15
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known Tina since she began to practice law more than a decade ago. She has always impressed me. She is really smart, really quick on her feet, and always cares that she is doing the right thing and getting the best results for her clients. While the majority of her practice seems to be devoted to DUI and traffic, I know from co-defendant cases we have had, and from watching her in court and in judges’ chambers, that she is a very effective advocate in felony matters such as narcotics and gang cases, among others. In a case that we had three or four years ago, she sort of took over the chambers discussion (in which the court, Deputy District Attorney, and the defense attorneys meet to talk about a case or cases) and when she was done she had managed to persuade the court to shave a year off of everyone’s (already good) indicated sentence. Certainly she is someone you can trust to give you her best all of the time and I am happy to endorse her."
