Although our lawyers have a commendable record of success in the courtroom, we take pride in excellent customer service. We recognize that your domestic disputes are among the most difficult types of conflict that you will face. We appreciate that you may be unfamiliar with the methods the court requires to resolve these issues and keep you informed. As a result, you gain a legal ally who can address your concerns with compassion and up-to-date knowledge. At The Barnett Firm, we accomplish both of these tasks through informed, aggressive representation.

When you retain our practice, you will work alongside a dedicated lawyer and paralegal during each stage of the legal process. We will share available alternatives and thoroughly explain the results of actions you take so that you are able to make informed decisions.
