How Brian Corby Got Into Michigan Legal Industry

Question: Tell me about your background. How did you get into the legal industry?

Answer: Well, in college I majored in political science and I minored in criminal justice. After graduation, I began a clerkship for a personal injury law firm in Southfield, Michigan. Within a year, an opportunity arose for a paralegal position in a Deerborne based full-service practice. During the later part of the 1990s, my roll in that firm transitioned into litigation and operations management. At that point, my concentration and priorities shifted from legal brief writing to document management and stream lining of work flow for several attorneys and support staff.

I would say that my underlying cause for getting into the legal industry was to follow my late father's footsteps. He was a corporate attorney. Like my father, I've always had a strong passion for business. This passion would later serve me well in joining the Barone defense firm. I was hired on as firm manager by Patrick Barone in 2006, where my primary duties consisted of litigation, operations, and personnel management. In 2010 my role expanded into finance management. In 2012 I was promoted to chief operating officer. As COO my role transitioned into growing the company and to extending our mission to helping a much larger population than in years passed.

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.
