We provide creative, effective planning and advocacy for a broad range of distinguished clients.

Barris, Sott, Denn & Driker, P.L.L.C. is in its fifth decade of providing imaginative legal services to metropolitan Detroit and a national and international clientele. The firm's clients come from every corner of the business community, from emerging start-ups to the largest corporations, from families to municipal and state government.

We have one goal: to find practical, creative, efficient solutions for our clients. We put matters under direct control of experienced attorneys, not filtered through layers of associates and paralegals. We have avoided unrestrained expansion in favor of maintaining a close-knit working group. We take pride in responding rapidly to our clients' needs, with fast turnaround. And of course we are committed to the highest standards of excellence. That is why major law firms often turn to us when they have legal problems of their own. We have successfully represented seven of the largest law firms in Michigan - which says a lot about our reputation and record of success.

    Extremely professional, personable, detailed oriented and well organized. Successfully represented our organization, turning over a multi-million dollar ruling against us. Successfully negotiated settlements in other matters, keeping us out of lengthy court proceedings. Excellent attorney.

    Review for Eric S. Rosenthal on 02/17/10 in Family Law

    He padded the cost tremendously - partly because my family was a comfortable, long term client of the firm. But my situation was a single parent without a job - and he charged over $16000 for a simple, uncontested divorce!
