What Our Clients
"I would strongly recommend Barker Law Firm for anybody that has the need of an attorney! I have been doing business with them for approximately 10 years and have been extremely satisfied!"
"Mr. Barker assisted me regarding injuries I sustained involving several automobile collisions. He was retained to represent me for the first of several collisions. As the complications of being involved in several litigation's at the same time evolved, Mr. Barker continued without waver to offer only the soundest counsel. This process lasted for several years because of the compounding of complications involved in assessing and litigating several ongoing actions at the same time. The outcome of his diligent work and understanding of my needs resulted in my wife and myself being totally pleased with the whole process. I recommend him and his law firm wholeheartedly."
"I have known Ken Barker for over 30 years and hold him as well as his law firm in the highest regard. Ken is a man of faith and good character. I also believe that he is one of the most qualified attorneys I have known and I would trust his abilities regardless the case. Ken did a great job on the case for which we hired him in 2006. He was up against several high dollar insurance attorneys and he represented our farm with grace and professionalism. I would highly recommend Ken and the Barker Law Firm."
"Ken is in contact with the best specialists to gather evidence and expert witnesses to give accurate testimony. His quick response in our case was critical before evidence was destroyed because of time and weather. He worked tirelessly for us over four years to get a resolution. He has a great legal mind, an excellent work ethic and he is an excellent negotiator. In addition, he's just a nice guy. He has a great team to back him up too."
"Mr. Barker and his firm were absolutely essential in our lawsuit to recover damages from a large and well represented company. Without his expertise, we would have failed to recover damages."
