Simply the best
If you are ANYWHERE near the Moses Lake area I highly recommend you retain Ms. Black for your legal needs. She is by far the most professional, competent, strong, direct, knowledgeable layer I have EVER worked with. We were rushed to respond to an allegation and she put the paperwork together and filed in a couple days. And the next day we were in court and won the case. It was sole due to her efforts I was prepared and ready to take on the case. She made the other attorney look like a first year law student. I was something to behold. Don't take my word for it. Go see her for yourself. You'll know within seconds of meeting her that she means strictly business. If you need help, you'd better call Ms Black. Otherwise you may be going up against her.

Fantastic lawyer!
Barbara was wonderful, got exactly what i needed for myself and my children. She was professional and respectful in court and extremely supportive in a very difficult time. When time was of the essence, Barbara was there to make sure that things were taken care of immediately.

No Show, Avoid!
2017-2018 I hired her for simple parenting plan stuff. She was never ever in the office. Got lots of run-arounds. No work was ever done. I'm talking about months of no activity, no communication. I finally gave up and did it myself. Completely non-responsive. Avoid!

Not worth the $$$
Hired her for a divorce....years pass and Im STILL married. She doesnt keep people informed, doesnt react to situations that need immediate judge asssitance. Can be tempermental in courtroom to own clients and always has that "fight' attitude which gets a client no where. Appears she does better for men then women. Waste of $$$$ and time. Look elsewhere.....
