Fighting For You
After 15 years of legal experience running a gamut from death penalty defense in New Orleans, to white collar criminal defense in Washington DC, to insurance defense in Jackson, I came to the realization that the chances of gaining a desired outcome from a legal proceeding are often directly proportional to the amount of resources a litigant has to expend on their case and that those litigants with the most resources - insurance companies, large corporations, and the federal and state governments - often litigated for reasons that have nothing to do with justice or making things right.
I founded Barker Law Offices in 2012 on the idea that my time and resources would be better spent representing those who came to our judicial system seeking justice, or looking to be made whole after a wrong was done to them, not those who use our courts to gain power and control, or to avoid paying for the wrongs they have done to others. For this reason, through the clients we select and the energy, intelligence and expertise we bring to bear on their legal matter, we seek to be an equalizer - to level the field between those with all the resources seeking only to gain more versus those who seek justice or to be made whole.

If you are a defendant in a criminal case, contact us as soon as possible so we can work with you to revolve this matter quickly.
Work place injuries happen all the time, often leaving employees unable to return to work. Workers' compensation ensures that anyone injured in the course of their employment receive wage replacement and medical benefits until they able to return to work.

Medical Devices/Bad Drugs
