"There are lawyers and then there is Houston. This man absolutely sits in a league of his own. In all sincerity, your wasting your time looking somewhere else or considering another firm. His insight, intuition and sheer skill is spot on in the most vital details and tangible in every single part of the process. They have a level of professionalism and care at the same time that I just don’t get to see too often in this industry. Rest assured regardless of your situation or in my particular case plain ole drama. You are in the absolute best hands ever regardless of what legal journey your facing. I could not have ever imagined enjoying hiring an attorney. Like who “enjoys” something like that. Crazy enough, because of Houston… I did. If the situation is important to you and you don’t have room for error… don’t be stupid, stop looking, and quickly hire The Barnes Law Firm."
