I was born and raised in Western New York and am proud to call it my home. After graduating from Kenmore East High School, I attended the State University of New York at Buffalo where I graduated cum laude, with a degree in Political Science.
While attending Law School at the University of Buffalo, I competed in the Desmond Moot Court Competition and later served on the Moot Court Board. I started my legal career over 10 years ago representing injured individuals as a result of auto accidents, construction accidents, slip/trip and fall cases, and nursing home negligence. My litigation experience includes representing both plaintiffs and defendants in personal injury matters through all aspects of their cases including dealing with the insurance company after an accident, conducting depositions, mediations, arbitrations, trials, and appeals. My experience handling cases from the defendant’s side gives me a unique perspective into the pit falls of dealing with the insurance company after an accident and during your case.
I was named by my fellow attorneys as a Super Lawyers “Rising Star” both in 2020 and 2021. When I am not at the office or in Court, you can find me staying active and enjoying all 4 seasons in WNY either playing with my 2 children at home, skiing, playing soccer and golf, or biking around town.
“The Barnes Firm did an excellent job on my car accident case. Jade was extremely helpful an answering all of my questions.”
“The Barnes Firm was very friendly, always quick to respond to our calls and emails. When we had any questions or concerns, they were there to walk us through everything. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that is looking for an attorney that will honestly fight for you and has your best interest in mind.”
“They handled everything with my accident and got me the maximum amount of money back, more than I thought I would get! Thanks!!”
