5
Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    20%
    If you are involved in a car accident, you may benefit from the services of a car accident lawyer, one who knows the dynamics of car crashes and can identify and weigh all the possible factors which may have played a part. Hiring a personal injury attorney or car accident lawyer is an important step in pursuing your claim. It is highly recommended that you hire an attorney as soon as possible after the accident.

  2. Child custody
    20%
    Whether you are going through a divorce or have a custody dispute with the other parent, it is important to protect your parental rights by hiring a child custody lawyer. There are many factors that go into a custody case including legal and physical custody as well as visitation. There are also child support and many other issues that a child custody lawyer can handle for you. It is very important to hire a child custody lawyer early in the case in order to protect your parental rights.

  3. Criminal defense
    20%
    If you have been charged with a crime anywhere in Alaska or if you think you may be charged with a crime, you need a criminal defense attorney. Criminal defense attorneys are experienced at maintaining your constitutional rights and protecting you from governmental overreach. It is imperative to hire a criminal defense attorney as soon as you have been charged with a crime or think you may be charged with a crime.

  4. DUI and DWI
    20%
    Alaska has complex DUI and OUI laws and you need an experienced DUI/OUI lawyer to handle your case. There are two separate and distinct cases entered against you when you are charged with DUI or OUI. One is a criminal case the other is the DMV administrative case. If you do not request administrative review of your case with the DMV within 7 days of your arrest, your license will be automatically suspended. Hiring a DUI/OUI attorney as soon as possible is very important.

  5. Divorce and separation
    20%
    A divorce lawyer helps you if you no longer want to be married. Whether you want a legal separation or the marriage ended, divorce lawyers assist you to arrange financial and family matters, typically in a negotiation with your spouse's lawyer. Alimony, child custody, child support, and a fair division of community assets (like who keeps the house or how your checking and savings accounts are divided) are matters that a divorce lawyer is trained to help determine.

Evan was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. He grew up in South Anchorage and graduated from Dimond High School. Evan was part of the first graduating class of Japanese Immersion Program students to attend immersion classes from 1st – 12th grade. The immersion program afforded Evan the opportunity to travel to Japan and stay with a host family while in elementary school.

 

Evan attended Colorado State University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. Evan returned to Alaska and worked as a field engineer for a large commercial construction company before attending law school.

Evan has been active in sports his whole life and played competitive ice hockey for local teams, Dimond High as well as for Colorado State University’s club team while in college.

 

While attending law school, Evan clerked for a prominent criminal defense firm in Oregon. With the assistance of the firm’s owner, Evan handled multiple serious felony criminal and post-conviction cases. Evan was able to hone his trial skills while still in law school and successfully defended a client charged with first-degree murder and misconduct involving a weapon. The client was acquitted of all charges based on a self-defense theory and was released from state custody the day of the verdict after spending over a year in jail. Evan also had the opportunity to represent other clients at trial and hearings, all before graduating.

 

Also while in law school, Evan successfully drafted a post-conviction petition and memorandum that was granted by a judge in Oregon. In essence the client who was originally sentenced to life without parole was granted a new sentencing trial on his aggravated murder charge.

 

Evan graduated cum laude from Willamette University College of law and was a member of Moot Court and Law Review. Evan also received a certificate in dispute resolution and was nominated to the Order of the Barristers for his outstanding courtroom advocacy skills. Evan was also active in the Student Bar Association and was Vice-President of his class in his final year of law school.

 

After law school, Evan returned to his home state of Alaska and opened his own law firm in Anchorage. Evan practices in many areas of law including criminal defense, family law, personal injury and other civil suits. Evan is admitted to practice in both the state and federal courts in Alaska.

 

When not assisting his clients with their legal needs, Evan spends his time enjoying hunting and fishing in Alaska. Evan also enjoys world travel and studied abroad in Australia while obtaining his undergraduate degree.

Child Custody
Evan has worked diligently on my behalf. Going through child custody is not an easy ordeal to go through. I've faced multiple attempts from the other parent to break up our 50/50 agreement and they all have been unsuccessful. I've worked with Evan since 2018 and he is professional and comes well prepared. With Evan's legal representation I've had one protective order dismissed and another overturned within a calendar year. As stated above these legal attempts to oust me out of my child custody agreement were flawed and groundless. Child custody can be an ugly process to experience. Chosing this law firm has been one of the bright spots in this process. I understand it's a financial hurdle to hire an attorney but if you decide to hire an attorney I would recommend this law firm.

Honest and sincere
MR. Brakeman listened to my case on an initial phone consultation. He let me know what I was up against and helped educate me on the whole process. Many other people led me to believe I would not fare well in court. Mr. Brakeman was honest right up front and said typically people in my position do not always fair well. Despite that, he felt we could present a case that was compelling enough for a more favorable outcome. Our initial court hearing did not go as well as we hoped. Despite that, he did manage to gain a lot of ground which I thought was impossible. Mr. Barrickman felt the evidence we presented had not been looked at correctly and the court had made mistakes. He challenged the courts finding and was successful. We could have kept fighting it out for even more gains. Mr Barrickman and I both felt we had done very well and was not sure if spending more time and money would guarantee and further gains. I really appreciate that he kept me calm and in reality. He was extremely polite and attentive to my needs. My fears was to hire a lawyer that wanted to keep running up the bills. Mr Barrickman was well organized and very focused on my case. Many times he advised me in ways to help reduce cost in his representation of my case. I recommend MR. Barrickman and would seek his representation again if needed. He really went all out to help me.

Family Law
I feel one of the most important things to consider about this review is that I am not from Anchorage, nor do I live in the state of Alaska. I had to handle my case roughly 4,000 miles away and I was nervous to say the least. I don't know many people in Anchorage so it wasn't like I could call around and ask friends if they knew anything about family law and take recommendations for lawyers. During one of the most stressful times in my life, I had to rely on google to lead me in the direction of a solid lawyer. I am so thankful that I didn't choose poorly. I cannot stress enough how happy I am with Evan's services. Truly. I called his office, completely unprepared to speak with a lawyer (because they usually don'y answer their own phones), and I told him all about my case. In the same conversation, he told me it would be complicated and that he couldn't guarantee an outcome (as they all say, but really, the outcome could've went either way), but that he would take the case. He worked for our winning outcome. The documents that he created were quality work that has received plenty of praise since. He is personable, communicates like a real person, and replies in a timely manner. He is a busy person, but you'd think he was only working for you with the way he discusses the case like it's his only priority. His efforts show through his work. Like I said before, the case was complicated. I remember going into the hearing and thinking, "no matter what happens, I'm glad I got to work with Evan because he really cared." We won. But I would give this same review regardless. He is good. More than good. Hire him.

Best child custody lawyer
Evan Barrickman was the perfect attorney for my custody relocation case. Evan showed compassion, an outstanding work ethic and a genuine concern for me and my family throughout this very stressful process. He is thorough and was on top of everything. He was very responsive and communicated when he needed to and is a real straight shooter. We won our case against a very tough attorney and because of him, our family stays together here in Alaska and I will be able to be in my children's lives. Best money I have ever spent was hiring Evan as my attorney.

Good lawyer
Evan is a very good lawyer. He knows what he is doing and is best at it. I hired him to represent me in a case and he was prepared even though I hired him on short notice. With Evan’s expert negotiating skills my case settled out of court.

Master of the Court System. Great Attorney!
Evan was beyond amazing when navigating through my custody case. At first before I had a lawyer, I was lost on where to even start. One call to Evan, and a quickly scheduled meeting, and my case was well on its way. He is very down to earth and honest, while still remaining very professional. I couldn't have found a better lawyer to handle my case. I ended up with full custody, and every stipulation I asked for, without even a hesitation of the judge. Evan knows exactly what he is doing, and like I said, he is a master of the courtroom. He will fight for you until the end, while also being personable. You feel like you are going to court with a lifelong friend. I could also tell that he is very well respected around the Alaskan Legal Community. That showed me just how knowledgeable and trustworthy he is. If you want a lawyer that has your back, and can no doubt get you what you are fighting for, Evan Barrickman is your guy. I couldn't have been happier with his service, and would recommend him to anyone. A++

Child custody
Evan is an outstanding attorney. He is a straight-talker who won't tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to know. I first hired him to represent me in a ridiculous DVPO case. He was thoroughly prepared even though I hired him on short notice. The DVPO was thrown out but the underlying child custody case that prompted the false accusations was reopened. Due to scheduling conflicts, I hired a different attorney to represent me in my very complicated custody case… That was a big mistake! It wasn’t long before I was calling Mr. Barrickman and begging him to take me back! And I’m very glad he did. With Evan’s expert negotiating skills my case settled out of court and I got every major thing I asked for.

Evan Barrickman is THE BEST
I am so thankful for the work that the Law Office of Evan Barickman has done for me! I had gone through four previous attorneys who were unable to help. I was about to give up when I was referred to Evan Barrickman. When I first met Evan, I was impressed with his sharp intellect and confident demeanor. After I started working with him, I was further impressed by his ethics, and his dedication to the highest good of his profession. I could tell that he really cared about helping to "right a wrong" in my situation. Evan is incredibly personable, was straight-forward about my case, and he did a tremendous amount of research regarding my situation. His assistance enabled me to recover so much more than I would have otherwise. I rarely write reviews or make recommendations, but for a professional like Evan, who truly went the extra mile (or two!), I am compelled to rave about how happy I have been with him and his stellar work. Thank you so much, Evan!

Knowledgable, Passionate, & Motivated- People's Choice
I'm speechless right now! I've dealt with 5 different lawyers regarding a complicated case over the course of 1 year (3 of which where expensive), and I KEPT getting the "run around." Just money wasted and still no answers to my concerns. I can honestly say I've never ended any dialogues with them the way I ended mine today with Mr. Barrickman feeling a sense of relief like a 50lb weight was lifted off of me! Not only did he thoroughly answer ALL of my questions, but he went beyond expectations by CLEARLY defining/explaining what steps to take toward my journey for resolution. He was personable, extremely knowledgable in regards to family law, and what he wasn't sure about he took the time in that very moment to research so that he could provide me with honest, accurate information. I SINCERELY felt as if he cared about my dilemmas. I've never physically met him and this was our very 1st conversing, but I would recommend him WITHOUT hesitation to anyone needing an amazing lawyer. You will immediately sense that this man has TRUE passion for what he does. I am in tears right now b/c I genuinely taught myself not to expect much from a lawyer... Until NOW! I don't have to waste any more money... I can finally get the ball rolling in my case. Mr. Barrickman is truly prayers answered! DO NOT sell yourself short and miss the opportunity to have a motivated attorney serve you... I know you are probably just as tired as I was with the back and forth w/the law/justice system. Do yourself a favor and choose Mr. Barrickman. I have absolutely ZERO regrets and would do so again w/out looking any further! Unfortunately, myself and all other parties involved in my case now reside in TX and he doesn't practice here, or else I would've hired him on the spot. Excuse the lengthiness, but I'm excited right now. He took the time to serve me, now I'm just attempting to do the same.
