Ryan Ballard Defending Clients in Michigan

Question: What makes you passionate about practicing law and defending clients in Michigan?

Answer: Well, initially I thought I wanted to be an engineer in college, and it got to the point that I figured out that I wanted more person to person interaction in my daily life, and I really appreciated the logic that the law is based on. And so that led me to studying the law and going to law school. But what makes me passionate about practicing law and defending clients is that, at its core, it's a helping profession. And I like helping people, so that is the number one thing that makes me passionate about practicing law. I also enjoy the fact that it—that there can be different results on different days with similar facts, so there's always something new on a daily basis that you may or may not expect, and that keeps me on my toes, and I like that as well.

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.
