Client Testimonials

"When asked who to contact regarding my DUI case, this local lawyer stated that Mr. Barbarette is the expert on DUI cases. I can't thank him enough for saving my reputation. Please don't hesitate to hire him if this happens to you. The natural talent he has in speaking to a jury is too hard to describe in words, but trust me, you won't find anyone that does it as good as him."
