I am in the military and I approached the Family Law Office of Barney with a unique situation. He did a great job in understanding some of the unique language and restrictions being in the military sometimes places on us. What I liked most about Barneys counsel is that he was focused on advocating for me but also respectful of other options to reaching an agreeable resolution between my wife and I.
Barney went above and beyond in performing his duties as my counsel and I give my recommendation to any in need of a quality Family Law attorney.

Barney was such a pleasure to work with. He made the whole process of going through divorce painless. I would highly recommend the mediation process to anyone presented with the necessity of dissolving their marriage, and Barney's depth of experience with the divorce process, as well as his pleasant personality, make him the ideal mediator.

Barney was clear, compassionate, and exceptionally easy to work with throughout the entire process. He is highly responsive and concerned for the best possible outcome for all parties. It was as good an experience as we could have hoped for.

Barney and his team assisted us in getting through a difficult process with professionalism and care. Because we had already come to many logistical agreements, he oriented us to the process of how to interpret this legally and took care of all necessary fillings. His office was prompt in returning phone calls and setting up appointments.

Get it Done
Don’t leave your future in the hands of the court system, make your own divorce and custody decisions with the help of our experienced team.
The average divorce costs $17,000 per spouse without children and $23,000 per spouse with children and takes an average of over 2 years to complete. Divorce litigation is contentious, drawn out, and leaves important decisions about your life in the hands of strangers.
With mediation our trusted guide empowers you to take control of your own future. The average mediation takes 6 months to completion, costs a fraction of what litigation does, and leaves decisions about child custody, support and division of property in your own hands rather than those of a judge or social worker you’ve never met before.
