Barb took over my case about 30 days prior to a relocation trial in a case that had been building for about 7 months prior to that. Tensions were high. It was crunch time. Barb didn't flinch. She took me on and listened to my case. She approached the situation in a very no-nonsense way which I truly appreciate in an attorney. She stuck to the facts and fought against opposing counsel in a very professional manner rather than stooping to their level. When they fought dirty, I'm proud to say that she represented me in a way that I admired. We ultimately won this case and I am certain that it was Barb's knowledge and professionalism that is responsible for that.
Thank you so much for being there when we needed you and conducting yourself so well despite facing a very gnarly opponent!

Mrs. Mcinvaille has been my attorney for several years. She has always gone above and beyond being excellent. She is intelligent, sagacious, ethical, and above all else a wonderful person. She is honest and straight-forward. She also has a true and obvious passion for her job, which I believe has helped her become so great at it! I can not imagine someone finding a better laywer than her to represent them.

Barb is an amazing, ruthlessly compassionate attorney who always keeps YOUR best interests at the forefront. She helped me achieve the impossible and I'd recommend her to anyone confronting difficult situations.

I endorse Barb. She is a tenacious, experienced advocate for her clients. She is well respected by judges, her colleagues, clients and even her opposing parties. Barb is smart, practical and experienced.
