Defending kid who killed family of 4 going 112
He may be a good lawyer but he’s defending a piece of garbage chase jones. Who totaled 3 cars in 11 months and going to say “he’s not out stealing cars, or running around with a gun”. Stealing a car is better than killing a family going 112 after already totaling 2 cars. CLEARLYYY he doesn’t care and is a white kid believes. “I can do what I want and get a slap on the wrist”

Awesome Man!!!
I hired Brad for serious allegations. He is a very intelligent attorney. He clearly showed his professionalism and very impressed with his team. I would recommend my friends and family in need of difficult times to protect their innocence. I am at ease now as they have helped me. Great guy!

DUI
Working with Brad was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My needs were put first, and I was treated as a friend rather than a number. His strong network and depth of knowledge will pay dividends as he negotiates with the prosecution team to get you the best possible outcome. He is a fighter and will leave everything on the table to keep your life moving forward. It was a privilege working with Brad, and, thankfully, my career was not ruined by one poor decision. Rest assured – he is the real deal, and you will get what you pay for, no doubt about it.

Thank You
Bradley fought for me when I was wrongfully charged in a domestic violence situation that was the result of a nasty divorce. Although it was a long process in the end Bradley was able to get my case dismissed. Thank you.

Outstanding Attorney!!!
I highly recommend Brad Barshis. He successfully handled my case with professionalism, legal expertise, and attention to detail. I sought out Brad's counsel in handling an anti-harassment order against an ex-partner who was continuing to disrupt me at my places of work and intimidate me within my community. I had an abundance of evidence, and I needed help moving forward. Brad took the time to not only listen to me but to thoroughly review the materials I presented. It was clear that he cared about me not only as a client, but as a human being. Brad continued to stay in contact with me throughout the legal process. He worked with my busy schedule and gave me honest input. When it finally came time for our hearing, Brad's talents as an attorney shined. He was prepared, very well spoken, and he kept my self and my witnesses informed and at ease. Brad navigated the courtroom with a professional grace. He was not only able to ethically prove our argument but he was able to catch the respondent pleading false narrative. I am extremely grateful for Brad’s guidance and representation. If you are in need of not only a good attorney, but one of the best, look no further. Brad gets the job done!

Ciminal Defense Awesome Attorney
My wife was accused of a DUI. Brad took the time to explain the legal dense strategy in which driving under the influence could not happen if not driving. He did an extensive undertaking of all the facts related to the case and went the extra mile of consulting us of the process and what to expect. He methodically prepared himself for trial as well as preparing both my wife and I for the upcoming litigation's. Brads well planned defense illustrated a total lack of evidence against my wife's accusations and was instrumental in a highly biased Judicial Court of Law. Brads magnificent painting of the true events that occurred. His supporting facts and the discredit of the little evidence of the prosecution that was available lead to a trial by jury being dismissed altogether. If it was not for the professionalism, dedication and attention to detail, the trial may have gone extremely poorly for my wife and or plea bargaining would have clearly not been in her best interest. Other attorneys should follow the same ethics and professional approach for their clients as Brad continues to lead the way! Job well DONE! I can not express enough gratitude for the assistance of a truly great attorney and a member of such an upstanding Law Firm (Newton and Hall). Not only where they willing to take on the case, but they were willing to go the extra mile financially working with us. While we have been experiencing some really difficult financial times. Another instrumental fact that distinguishes really good legal firms from all the rest. The fact that they truly care about their clients!

Great attorney
We all win and lose.. this is what life is... unfortunately, my case for protection order against my daughter was a lose.. Brad surely spent all the time he needed to come in the courtroom ready to fight.. Very assuring, very friendly, very patient, specially when my mom was reacting more emotionally than I was. Brad did what I would do and more than the average lawyer... He took time also to make sure I understood the possible outcomes of what my case was... Honest and caring... Thanks brad. I appreciate ur hard work. And keeping me out of prison for something I did not do... Jackson

professional caring attorney
Mr. Barshis and his office were very professional yet took the time to explain the traffic court process and stayed in touch till resolved . I first sought free advice on Avvo after my son got two tickets for driving over a handicap ramp to park on the lawn of a local park. That's $50 for lawn and $275 for ramp. Since he was only 17 with his ricer car you can imagine our future insurance cost. (I was freaked out cause I have never been even pulled over and my husband would flip out - world war 3) So the free advice said to better get attorney. So the best thing we did was let Mr. Barshis and his fabulous staff help a nervous Nelly mother get thru a crisis by calmly explaining what they could do and what we had to do. So for a reasonable fee (yeah my broke son paid half) the tickets went thru court and Mr. Barshis gave me glorious news -the parking on lawn reduced to $25 and the worst one was totally dismissed. He was such a pro yet also you felt they cared about us to. I would recommend their office hands down. Thanks Avvo.

Great Lawyer
Hired him for a speeding ticket. Was able to answer all my questions promptly and worked with me despite financial/payment issues. He was very friendly and patient. He also was able to get my speeding ticket dismissed. Would hire again and recommend to others.

Very helpful
I hired Mr. Barshis to handle a speeding ticket for me. He took the time to answer all of my questions and was very thorough. He got my ticket dismissed without me even having to go to court. I will definitely hire him for future tickets, and will recommend him to others.

Thanks for the help!
When I was arrested for DUI, I only expected the worst to happen. I contact James Newton, Attorney at Law in need of some serious help. Bradley was my assigned attorney. Even with the high breathalyzer results, he still managed to win my DOL hearing, and plead me to a Negligent Driving charge. I don't know what I would have done without him. He was assuring the entire time, even taking the time to call me back after hours sometimes. If my sister got a DUI, I would make sure she chose Brad as her attorney.

Great Lawyer!
I had Mr. Barshis handle a traffic ticket for me in Kent Municipal and got it dismissed. I was very surprised that he was able to get my ticket dismissed without having me appear in court with him. I had a lot questions to ask and he was always there to answer them all , he responded to all of my email in a timely matter. I have never met an attorney who was so patient and willing to sit down and take time out of his busy day to talk to me and explain to me all of this confusing legal stuff. GREAT JOB! Mr. Barshis

Not good for civil cases
If you have a civil case & you're a man who's being messed up by his Ex, then you better hire a tough female lawyer - women swing election votes for elected judges & all other elected officials who only care about their paycheck & re-elections. Attorney Brad took 5k in advance from me & i told Newton & Hall that i needed a tough lawyer to represent me since my Ex kept filling false accusations against me just to use a PO for custody. Nothing was done professionally & i kept following up with all the documents & oral info that would help me in my case. The weird thing is: i kept getting ignored after i made the initial payment upfront which was forced on me. it's very sad that our society cares money & material life the most & not children, family & morality.

Don't waste your money
Brad Barshis, at best, will do the same for you as a public defender. Paid nearly $9,000 just to get the title of the crime changed, from (first) DUI to Reckless Driving. All consequences the same; jail time, $1000 fine, alcohol treatment, blow and go, SR22, suspended license, etc. Don't waste your money. Keep your cash to pay for said consequences. Also, major lack of communication. The attorney is very difficult to contact and had little to no knowledge about my case or my situation and didn't care or give time to understand.
