Great Legal Representation
I recommend Mr. Barney and his Associates for all your legal needs. They take the time to understand you and your business and then help you strategize and execute the right legal plan.

Josh Barney is the kind of lawyer that you go to for answers, not just advice. He has a broad range of legal knowledge and can help you arrive at business decisions, not just legal opinions. He understands how the decision will play itself out within a legal framework and can put those decisions into context. He is an excellent listener, non-judgmental, and is there for you. Lots of personal never feel that you are being hurried along. My firm uses Mr. Barney exclusively for all of our business needs and situations. He is a valuable business partner.

Highly recommended
I started working with Mr. Barney and his team over 10 years ago when I started my first business. He understood that I needed to watch every penny and that his success with me was dependent on my success. Since that time he has helped me purchase a company and start 2 spin-off companies. Mr. Barney and his team’s unique perspectives make them my first call for all business and personal legal matters. Most businesses have a delicate balance between risk and financial success. Typically legal advice is one sided and purely looks at minimizing risk without evaluation of the business related costs of these decisions. Mr. Barney’s broad business and legal perspectives have helped my businesses analyze risk vs. financial opportunities, and thus flourish. His team has guided me on a range of legal matters from how my companies should be structured to minimize exposure between businesses, to how class III medical devices should be labeled and marketed. I highly recommend Mr. Barney and his team for your legal needs.
