In His Own Words

I come from northern Minnesota. I was attending my undergraduate college, Bemidji State, and I was working on a history degree, and one day my professor sort of made the joke that as a history major, you will always be asked whether you are going to teach or become a lawyer. And at that point, I had not really considered being a lawyer, but it sort of gave me a drive and determination to begin fulfilling that goal. And that is what led me eventually to Michigan State College of Law and into the practice of law.

Since my acceptance to the Michigan Bar Association in 2009, I have been defending the accused as a member of the Barone Defense Firm (BDF). In my time with the BDF, I have represented hundreds of clients, filed countless motions, conducted extensive trials, and won impressive victories. I have fought diligently to represent the best interests of my clients both in and out of court. It is my goal to provide to my clients the type of representation I would want if placed in their shoes. It is a point of pride to not only be knowledgeable, but available. It does not do my clients any good if I know and understand what is going on and they do not.

I think that people being charged with a crime need somebody there to support them and make sure that they understand that they’re not alone, and that they have people there that care about them and are willing to help them out, contrary to what a lot of the TV commercials may say.

★★★★★
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.
