What Makes Boyle Passionate About Michigan Clients

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

Answer: To obtain a law degree and pass the bar, just to get a license to practice law is a journey of persistence and dedication. I remember the day I was sworn into the bar in a Muskegon courtroom surrounded by my family, my parents, my oldest friend, sponsored by a lawyer I've known most of my life, before a judge I've known most of my life, and it was the pride and the joy on all their faces that made me realize how special this was. This was an accomplishment, because of the study of law. But what would the practice of law hold for me?

And my first job was what I thought I wanted to do— it was at a big firm in Detroit. But I soon realized that I needed to work with people and for people, not big entities and corporations and insurance companies. I needed it to be personal. And over a decade ago I was lucky enough to find my fit with Patrick Barone and practice DUI and OWI defense. This area of law is certainly one of the most challenging and complex, but it's very personal to me. Every client I represent I treat how I would want to be represented in their shoes. I become part of their lives in the time that their life is likely the worst it's ever been, and together we take that journey.

My training in law and science arms me with the ability to properly educate my client, the prosecutors, the judges. But who I am as a person allows me to connect and truly help the person. And that, to me, is what it's all about.

★★★★★
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.
