How Barone Uses Legal Abilities Outside of Court

Question: How do you use your legal gifts and abilities outside of Michigan courtrooms to better society?

Answer: Well, I try to give back to the community in many different ways. I have written a two-volume legal treatise, which is designed to help other lawyers throughout the country know how to appropriately defend drunk driving cases. I've also written close to 100 articles on the topic of drunk driving defense, trial practice, criminal defense, etc. and I also teach a class at one of Michigan's law schools. I am either not paid for these activities or am paid very little. I just feel strongly that most of Michigan's citizens are not well represented in court, particularly in drunk driving cases, and I wanted to teach other lawyers what I know so that they can do a better job for their clients.

I am also a frequent lecturer and I've appeared on TV and radio regarding these topics, and I've spent more than 1,000 hours learning psychodrama, and am now giving workshops to lawyers and non-lawyers about how to use psychodrama in their respective professions.

I'm also very active in my church, where I help others deepen their faith and in many instances help them with their various hurts, habits, and hangups, including many different types of addictions.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Patrick Barone is the ONLY choice for DUI defense. He was realistic from the start and made it a point to look at my case before taking my money. As a business owner, when I think of attorneys, I think of the "shark infested waters. Patrick is a shark alright, but his prey is not the client; it's justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Attorney Patrick Barone was very helpful and helped me understand the charge and sentence absolutely clearly. He also guided me through step by step helping me form a statement. His instructions were clear and detailed. It was obvious he cared about me understanding every important detail within my case. I would absolutely recommend this defense firm to anyone in need.

The Barone Defense Firm is the firm I recommend. They are truly concerned about the person, not just the legal issue, but the person as well. They are the most knowledgeable defense firm that I am aware of, having actually written the book on DWI Defense. If you are faced with a DWI you will not find a more professional and skilled law firm. But, most importantly, they care about how the accused individual recovers his or her life when the case is complete. Very remarkable group of lawyers. William H.
