"Barry has done our wills, helped us incorporate a business, and helped us sell a home. In each case we found his help thorough and accurate. He explained each transaction in language we could understand so we were able to confidently make decisions on options he presented. Barry is pleasant to work with, humorous and empathetic. We highly recommend him to anyone seeking legal advice." ~ Roy B. (Boise, ID)
