super lawyers - the barnes firm


A resilient spirit; the courage to go on in the face of adversity; a commitment to healing when misfortune strikes; the strength to endure when another’s negligence disrupts a life or the lives of an entire family. These are some of the attributes I find in the clients I am privileged to represent as an attorney at The Barnes Firm. Each and every day, I am impressed by the fortitude and goodness of the hardworking people who entrust me to handle their cases. I take very seriously my commitment to do absolutely the best job that I can for them.

I have worked alongside Steve & Rich Barnes for years at both the law offices of Cellino & Barnes and now, The Barnes Firm. It is a privilege to be associated with a firm with an equally staunch commitment to every one of its clients, and to work with such an outstanding team of professionals who are skilled and knowledgeable, but most importantly, who truly care about our clients’ well-being.
