Barnes and Cohen lawfirm does excellent work! Always in constant contact with me and if I have any questions or concerns they follow up if I have to leave a message. My case was very long so I was very frustrated at times but they always gave me great advice and did everything they said they would do.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this law firm! They not only succeeded with the best possible settlement for me but everyone in that office hasn't stopped caring since day one. It was all about my health and well being above all else. Through constant communication I always felt like a priority. Hopefully you will never be in a situation in which you need an attorney but if so these guys are the ones you want on your side!

Mr Barnes has handled a number of my cases. I wouldn't want any other attorney to handle them. My last case he did an explicit job. I've referred him to my family, friends and even strangers. Thanks Attorney Barnes you're great.
C. Barnes is absolutely the best attorney ever. I contacted Barnes & Cohen because my daughter and I were involved in a hit and run accident. From the beginning with Matthew C. to ALL the paralegals that kept me in the know. Kaylon C. Jessica T. and Grace M. were super at responding to my calls and emails. I will never be able to thank C.Barnes enough for the settlement he got for me and my daughter. I will always highly recommend C. Barnes. Should I ever need legal services again, I'm definitely coming back to B & C. Having had family member use one of the "OTHER" firms has shown me the difference between professionalism and great customer service versus a firm that's only out to get what they can get and screw you in the process. Kudos B & C. You are ACES in my book.
A friend who has used Barnes and Cohen 3 times in the past referred me to them and I couldn't have been more pleased with the outcome. This was my first accident and they helped answer my endless amount of questions. I will definitely recommend them to family/friends in the future.
Mr Barnes and Mr Cohen were very professional while handling our case. The entire office were helpful and professional from beginning to end. Thank you and if I ever need a personal injury attorney again there's no other option for us than Barenes and Cohen.
The entire office was very professional and handled my case to my satisfaction.
I highly recommend Barnes and Cohen to anyone who has had an accident and needs legal help. From the receptionist to the paralegals and lawyers, I have been very impressed by all of them. They consistently demonstrate integrity, intelligence, a caring attitude, knowledge of the law and a focus on the results.
