Mr. Barras provided me with solid legal advice about a contract breach situation. He knows the law, but will also advise you with your particular circumstances and goals in mind. I highly recommend Michael to those looking for an attorney they can trust.

Michael is an exceptional litigator and has effectively handled our court battle to a favorable outcome. I would recommend Michael for any area of business or contract law. Michael will brief clients of all possible outcomes and make recommendations so clients can be aware of possible costs and expected returns for their legal fee investment.

Mike is an up and coming attorney. I have not had any cases with him so it is little difficult to judge other than Assumptions based on his years of practice.
