About Barry

Learn Barry’s areas of practice.

Liberty is precious.   It’s right up there near the top.  As in: “Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”   It’s also the most precarious.  In the criminal justice system you are about one bad minute away from loss of liberty.  Loss of liberty to drive, loss of liberty to see your children, or loss of liberty in the most literal sense of incarceration.  It doesn’t take much to get you there either.  One “wrong place at the wrong time” or one person who is willing to say the wrong thing about you whether it is true or not.

At Barry W. Engle PC we are all about your liberty.  We are about protecting your rights under the law and the constitution.  Call us at.  Your liberty is at risk.  Call Barry W. Engle PC to protect it.

This guy right here is the right choice
I am so happy I called Barry. He went above and beyond for me, while he was sick at home with covid, before I even had officially hired him! Barry is an outstanding guy, and a true defender of the innocent, at least to me. He is worth every penny, and so is his lovely assistant, Denise. This is a strong team you can count on to be there for you and to really defend you

I was referred to Barry from a friend who had used him and was really pleased in his services. After a consulting with Barry I knew we should hire him. He was amazing! Barry kept in good contact with any updates that were happening. He or his Paralegal were always friendly and available. His services were life changing for my son. Sometimes you find yourself in situation you never thought you would be in an and this was one of them. Hopefully we will never need Barry again but if circumstances happen we would hire him in a minute.

Trustworthy Attorney
Barry has been in the game long enough to make lifelong clients. As a minor, I had a run in with the Feds on a conspiracy case involving trafficking narcotics cross state. Barry was able to handle my legal problems without my worries. I did not have to face a day in jail but oh it is still lovely to get pulled over at the airport each time. Don’t break the law kids! Then comes a decade later an East Coast State Charge involving Trafficking in Marijuana. Barry professionally showed up the day I was taken in by Customs and Border Parrol and aggressively consulted strategies within this extradition case and assured my defense with minimal jail days served. I am pushing 30 now and Barry’s professionalism has helped me change from within.

Always my first choice
Barry helped me defend false accusations and a restraining order. He took my case at the last minute and was still fully prepared in court. He is always just a phone call away. I fully recommend him to anyone seeking representation!

Extremely competent & always available.
I highly recommend having Barry on your side. I interviewed a lot of lawyers & he was my choice of the bunch. He represented me over a 6 year period in state & federal court. He always made time to answer all of my questions & even my worried mothers. He always kept me fully informed about my case. So I always felt confident walking into court. You won't go wrong with him. I don't write reviews but his services were excellent. I want to let anyone else in my shoes know that he can help.

Just when you feel defeated, Barry has your back
I unfortunately made a mistake that resulted in quite a few consequences, as one night I drove under the influence. My case could've gone a few ways based off a past situation, but Barry overcame the odds and I ended up with the best and most ideal scenario. His hard work, and expertise allowed me to keep my job and follow the path I did for the last year in which I learned a lot from my mistake and I can now put it behind me. Had it gone another way, I'm not sure how things would've ended up. The whole office is great. They are knowledgable, kind and supportive. Would recommend them to anyone!

If you have to trust your life in somebody's hands Barry Engle is definitely your man. He knows his Law.
On my behalf, Barry Engle has prevented unjust prosecution and judgement by a jury of my peers. With utmost respect for each individual's personal beliefs and views; Barry upholds a professional code of conduct in law 'what is truly right and wrong' in every circumstance. Barry's exceptional work ethics and integrity exceeds his reputation. His values hold firm to the legal system and the justice it's entitled to provide. From personal experience, Barry Engle is tried and true to give his 100%.

Barry is simply the best
Barry Engles and David Giles are simply the best,I've had a positive experience with MR. Barry Engle and the staff at his office. I like the way the office sits down and has an open discussion about my case and as a team they worked together to make the best plan for defense. They were open an honest about what they thought about each and every situation. They were very knowledgeable about my situation, they kept me informed, they quickly responded to all of my concerns, the Engle office is extremely trustworthy. I've had many experiences with many attorneys, and Barry and his staff ranks right up with the very best of them MR. Barry Engle is professional and a very knowledgeable defense attorney that made all the difference in my situations. I'm quite satisfied with the services I've received at this law office. He responded quickly to my questions. His staff works hard and were very kind to me. I wouldn't hesitate to contact him again if the need presented itself. Why he has only a 7.6 avvo rating is beyond me.

Barry Engle is SUPERB
I knew Barry when he was in high school. I never expected to need a criminal lawyer, but the world works in strange ways. He was and is the only lawyer I would ever call. He is brilliant, creative and I trusted him with my life. He delivered, and in so doing I would never consider calling anyone else. I trust him implicitly.

Trusted Attorney
I've known Barry for a number of years and when my daughter got into some trouble with the law he was the first one I called. Barry did a great job of explaining all the aspects of the case, where there might be sticking points and what the probable outcomes would be. We discussed the strategy of the case and what options my daughter had available to her and how best to proceed. He was always available when we had any questions and arrived prior to the hearing so we could ask any last minute questions and prepare us for the hearing. Barry did an excellent job and I would certainly use him again if the need arose.

Barry Engle
Several months ago I found myself between a rock and a hard place, I had used Engle and Giles P.C before for a communication breakdown between myself and another individual and was happy with the outcome, so I decided to contact their office and see if they could help me through my dilemma. After the initial consultation, which unfortunately happened to behind concrete walls and bullet proof glass, I decided to hire Barry and David to begin working with me through my time of despair. Having dealt with attorney's in the past, I am familiar with some of their approaches in keeping the potential client optimistic towards a dismissal so they are more likely to get the case. Although, everything was somewhat positive they constantly reminded me of the allegations and consequences I was faced with should I be found guilty. As the days moved closer towards my highly anticipated court date, I often found myself unsure and highly stressed from the potential for an average American behind a wooden bench wearing a rob and holding a gavel to find some character defect in myself and decide to figuratively "throw the book" at me. It was in these times that I would call Barry; as all attorneys are often busy,Barry would find the time to take my call and if he was away from the office I would always get a return call by days end. Furthermore, we would have monthly "strategy session" in which all involved parties would discuss in greater detail the facts and would come up with an action plan. If it hadn't been for these "strategy session" I would have been running blindly in the dark. I was able to understand the approach they were taking with the District Attorney and reassure them them I was doing everything I could to help alleviate the DA's case against me. My court date finally did arrive, I was already prepared for the outcome because of the preparation put together by my excellent legal representation. I'm not sure I would be able to say this if I had decided to go other routes. In my case, everything worked out in my favor and I was very delighted to have my life back without additional stressors. Let me just say that anyone who finds themselves in a difficult situation they had never envisioned is always going to want everything to be dismissed and life to resume as normal, but unfortunately the court systems are not designed that way. Every once and a while there may be a loop hole to jump through, but for most of us we have to face the consequences for our past mistakes. These errors in judgement can be enormously diluted if you have the right legal representation. I would strongly encourage anyone who is looking for a great legal representation team to give Barry Engle and David Giles a call, I am living testimony to the arduous time they have helped me through and put my life back on track.

Provides good guidance and advice and makes effective presentation to the Court.
Mr. Engle has represented me on a DUI matter. The laws pertaining to this matter have gone through some recent changes and he educated me on how these changes impacted my case, and how they might be most useful in presenting my defense. He discussed strategies with me, made recommendations to me and presented my case to the Court . I was impressed how he found problems with the prosecution's case, and pointed them out to the Court. He took the time to prepare me for the upcoming proceeding and guided me through it. He always returned my calls promptly and seemed genuinely concerned about my welfare.

Fought for me like a champ
I just figured if the cops were willing to lie, I was going to be screwed. Engle and Giles dug into the case, found the evidence that showed that I was telling the truth and got justice. I couldn't have asked for more from a criminal defense firm.
