Awards & Recognitions


As a husband, a father, and a lifelong New Yorker, my work in my community is as important to me as any other part of my life. My work is to help people – I understand the physical and emotional damage and burden caused by an accident or injury, and I am fully committed to fight for my clients to be “made whole” by getting them the fairest compensation possible in each case. I know that an injury can lead to pain, uncertainty, lifestyle changes, and overwhelming financial challenges. Even just trying to figure out the paperwork, bills and medical explanations can become an impossible task. That is why I do what I do. Rest assured that you can turn to me for EVERY aspect of your case – from filling out the very first medical or insurance forms, to fighting for you at trial – I am dedicated to helping my clients every step of the way.

Prior to dedicating my career to helping those in need, I worked for one of the largest motor-vehicle insurance carriers in the country. Having protected insurance companies’ interests for over 4 years, I learned the “ins-and-outs” of how insurance companies value cases. Needless to say, they are in the business of “minimizing” injuries by paying out as little as they can. BUT, even with their size and recourses, every insurance carrier knows that EVERY case is subject to a fair trial, in which case a jury could award the REAL value of the case – usually MUCH MORE than what they are initially willing to pay. This is where my defense experience goes to work for you! I am keen to the details that leave insurance companies exposed and I am fluent in finding the vulnerabilities in their cases.

Not every attorney knows “both sides of the coin,” and this is why you need an experienced fighter, like me, in your corner to maximize your recovery.

Over the course of my career, I have lead numerous trials on behalf of my clients and taken over a dozen jury verdicts. My trial skills have been noticed by peers and Judges alike. I have been commended by Judges, and have been hand-picked to speak publicly at court seminars.

The Barnes Firm is best equipped to take on ANY insurance company, large or small. We have the resources to prepare your case, hire experts, and see it through to the very end. We also have a team of the best attorneys in the country, who are ready to discuss, collaborate and find creative ways to get your case the value it deserves. Here, at the Barnes Firm, we do NOT cut corners. We strongly believe that maximum time, attention and investment in a case leads to maximum results.

Ultimately, my goal is to get you the compensation you deserve, and I will take your case to trial if the insurance companies refuse to pay. Protecting my clients, providing guidance through a difficult time, and fighting for them has been the most fulfilling aspect of my career.

Please call me to discuss how much your case could be worth!
