Barbara was a referral and came highly recommended from one of our friends, who had used her practice. From our first meeting she made us feel comfortable and at ease with her genuine concern and great sense of humor. In dealings with her regarding our case, we found a very straightforward, smart and confident Attorney. Also, one who keeps you informed and returns your calls in a timely manner. My husband and I highly recommend her without reservation, and would definitely seek her services in the future, if needed.- F. B.
Barbara is the BEST! I've worked with her on both business legal needs and personal legal advisement. She's a breeze to work with, truly cares about her clients and has utmost integrity in her work. Her upfront pricing structure is in the client's best interest as there are no surprises at the end. Most lawyers charge by the hour not by the job, so having this information upfront gives the client peace of mind that they are being taken care of. Highly recommend!!- K.S.
I hired Barbara for two separate cases in 2019 and 2020, and both times I found her to be professional, responsive, and knowledgeable. I feel like she got the best possible outcome both times and highly recommend her to anyone seeking an attorney.- J.C.B.
