Client Reviews
"I was in a serious car accident and decided to consult with attorneys when my medical treatment expenses overwhelmed me. After speaking with a few attorneys over the phone, Barry Wallis was the only one who seemed like he truly wanted to help me, not just sign me on as a client. He gave me valuable recommendations over the phone and I realized I could trust him, so I asked him to be my lawyer." Shelena Yarukhina
"I relied on Barry's guidance and advocacy for five years as I dealt with the aftermath of a traffic accident. Barry's wisdom and determination was a true blessing" Dan Tonnes
