Comment: Mr. Barone and his team were extremely well knowledged, thoughtful, careful, and confident from the first meeting. He immediately impressed me, and I was right. His team handled a very complex case for my relative and saved them from wrongfully being convicted or sentenced. I HIGHLY recommend their unique service, expertise, and their quality of personal care

Comment: Not Guity VerdictI had the honor to hire Ryan Ramsayer as my DUI (OWI) attorney. I contacted Ryan right after a warrant was issued for my arrest following 3 months after the incident in which I was accused of my DUI. Ryan immediately began working and got me a court date via zoom (due to COVID-19). Warrant was removed, I attended my court date and receive pre-trial date. After a series of pre-trial court dates, the data master (breathalyzer machine results) was suppressed due to falsification of the machine being certified and the police department knowing this while continuing to use the machine. This was a direct result of Ryan doing his job at the level of excellence. During trial Ryan stated the facts and emphasized the fact that a field sobriety test was not done correctly, in which during cross examination the arresting officer admitted to not doing the test to standard. The jury found me not guilty based on the facts and the closing argument which summed up the facts along with the totality of circumstances. Beyond a reasonable doubt, the prosecution attempted to convict me on inaccurate tests in which Ryan was not going to let happen. Throughout the whole process, Ryan maintained contact and answered my call 100% of the time. I couldnt have asked for a better lawyer or better result.

Comment: Let me start by saying that, Ryan Ramsayer and the firm has provided me with an outstanding outcome. I was facing a prison sentence for a 6th DUI charge and Ryan was able to get me 2 years of drug court and probation. This is unheard of with most people fighting a 6th DUI charge. Ryan is very educated on the laws and was able to prove that throughout my court proceedings. I would highly recommend, Mr. Ramsayer for any legal issues that you may facing. I am amazed by the amount of skill and dedication that was provided to keep me out of prison. You are definitely in good hands with, Ryan and his firm.

Comment: Working with this firm is a breeze! Micheal Boyle in particular answers all calls, texts, and emails promptly. He works with you kindly so you understand exactly whats going on and he sticks to the books! He took the stress away throughout the whole process. I believe he could just sense I was innocent, and I was helpless to the system without him. With a court appointed attorney steering me to plea right at the beginning, I hired Mike. With his genuine passion for his job, his willingness to go all the way for your money, and his level of understanding, all charges dismissed! 2 years later I am left with relief and knowing that the amount of money was worth every penny with this firm, and of course Micheal Boyle.

This man is worth every penny, and more. I will forever be grateful for what you had done for me this year.

Comment: I was attacked this summer by two men while on my quad in an attempted theft of my quad and was assaulted and taken by ambulance to the hospital but my life was saved involving my gun. I was treated like the criminal by my local police department. My wife made a call at the scene and within four minutes Ryan was on the phone handling my case and giving us advice before they even took me away to the hospital. He continually checked on me and kept me up to date on my case from start to finish. He aggressively pursued the law enforcement and prosecutor until the truth prevailed and the entire case was thrown out. Ryan informed me every step of the way of where we were with the case, what was developing and what he would be doing next on my behalf. He is a hard worker and is more than a 9-5 Monday through Friday attorney. He was available 24-7 and would take my calls on his personal cell phone anytime I was concerned or had a question. He was very good at keeping this old pastor calm and at peace. Ryan is the guy I always want in my corner and is truly an amazing and highly skilled professional attorney.

Comment: Unfortunately I recently found myself with a DUI charge. I needed help and I needed to be sure I found the best help.After some research and recommendations I landed on the Barone Firm. This was the best decision I have made thus far with my precarious situation as my attorney, Patrick Barone has been nothing but amazing!Patrick has gone the extra mile for me and the effort has shown in the progression of my case. There have been multiple times he has foregone evenings and personal time to help me, answer questions and work on my case.I would only recommend Patrick and his team for anyone in a similar situation.

Comment: I hired Ryan to defend me in my extremely unusual gun charge case. Ryan Ramsayer took the time to explain to me his strategies on the possible outcomes and how he would go about defending me. He would keep me calm and give words of encouragement that he knew what he was doing. I personally am very happy that I found him and retained him as my lawyer. The past 3 months of this case was the worst time of my life and having him on my side was the biggest relief during this experience. He gave me the best outcome by working hard and showing consistant dedication with the utmost professionalism. I would recommend Ryan to anyone that needed to have counsel and representation in any civil or criminal defense case.

Comment: 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; its justice for his client. Ten stars Patrick!!

Comment: I like many other people I had a lapse in judgment. When i was arrested the cop was so reassuring that this is not going to be a big deal. He talked all buddy, buddy to me and acted as if he was my friend and that everything would be pled down with no problem. Once i was released i contacted a boss a my employment and found out what a big deal this really was. I know this was no time to take another chance with a possible good lawyer so I sought out the best. Patrick Barone was vary eager and understanding of my situation and wasted no time in addressing my concerns. Once the case was going though the court system it was like bad went to worse every time we went to court. I was originally written for a OWI then it was up charged to a Super Drunk because I blew a .17 and at this point I was at risk of losing my career. We had reached out to the prosecutor multiple times with out any luck. I was feeling like the whole world was out to get me. Patrick was alway reassuring and optimistic. It was literally 2 days before asking for trial by jury and the prosecutor approached Patrick at another court house in the area. The prosecutor then reduced the charge to a standard OWI. Patrick was vary supportive though out and even after the case was over. I still have my Career thanks to Patrick Barone.

Comment: No parent wants to receive the dreadful phone call… that your son/daughter has been arrested for drunk driving. At first a feeling of panic and despair set in and you may wonder what happens next? From the moment that I called the Barone Defense Firm I was confident that we had made the right decision. As a Mom I wanted the best representation for my son and we chose Patrick Barone because he is simply the best at DUI defense.Throughout my son’s case, Patrick was quick to reply to all of our emails and phone calls. He was always professional and guided us through every step of the legal process. Patrick never promised any specific outcome, but he certainly did deliver results.Aside from Patrick’s talent and expertise, what truly sets Patrick apart from other attorneys is his compassion for his clients and his drive to see his clients reclaim their lives. Patrick is a remarkable attorney and has guided my son towards resources that can help him learn from this unfortunate experience. It is extremely reassuring to have Patrick on your side.

Comment: Robert Andretz was kind and supportive, always available by phone for any questions that I had. I was facing 1-3 years prison time for a felony DUI probation violation in the 6th Circuit Court in front of Judge Cheryl Matthews. Robert persuaded the judge and the prosecuting attorney to keep me out of prison and place me in the Zero Tolerance program. His relationship with the judge and prosecuting attorney helped my case. I am a single mom of a teenager and if I went to prison my daughter would have been placed in her abusive father’s custody or foster care and would have devastated her. I would recommend Robert for your case because he was focused and did not “sugar coat” what I was facing. He prepared me for the worst, but gave me hope for the best.

Comment: 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.

He is a student of the law and continuously seeks to employ the best people and best practices to his firm. Should I have the misfortune of needing defense counsel in a substance abuse situation, Barone would be my first and only call. Every circumstance requires a unique interpretation of the law; go to the firm that knows it the best.. Barone Defence.

Comment: Patrick is the best DUI Lawyer in Michigan. He takes his work seriously, ok maybe a little too seriously; but no one is more prepared. I once referred a former client who would have been deported had he been convicted because of his past non driving criminal record. He had already waived a jury before a very difficult judge, who was sure to convict him. Patrick entered the case, got the judge to allow the client to withdraw the jury waiver, and went to trial. Not only was he acquitted, but one of the jurors was a reporter whose story was the headline, yes the headline, in the following Sunday Detroit News.

Comment: I too have worked with Brian Corby, Patrick Barone, and the team at Barone Defense Firm for the past 3 years in various business activities.In this time, Ive gotten to know them on the personal and on the professional levels.Both Brian and Patrick have gone out of their way to be helpful to me in ways that I would not have expected. In my numerous trips to the BDF office, the staff has always been discrete, professional, and cordial.When needing legal guidance, they have referred me very accurately to people I would have otherwise not known. This has been a real help.Patrick and his teams knowledge on the subject of DUI law is immense. Fortunately, I havent personally needed those types of services, but if I ever know anyone who is in the situation of defending a DUI case, Patrick and the BDF would be my first recommendation.

Comment: I have had the pleasure of working with Patrick Barone, Brian Corby and the team at Barone Defense Firm for the past 7 years in various business activities. Over these years Ive come to know Patrick and his team on a professional and personal level.The thing that has really impressed me is how Patrick puts people first - employees and clients. His major concern is that his employees love the work they do and love where they do the work. This passion shows in the high level of respect and ability all of the team at Barone believes - doing what is best for their clients. From the first impression they make, to the sound legal advice, to making sure their clients feel comfortable and confident in a disturbing situation, to the court date, to getting the most favorable situation possible and even after the case is closed, they truly care about their clients!You could go to most any law firm and be treated as another item on the docket or utilize Barone Defense Firm where you are a person whose situation is truly important and cared about by Barone Defense Firm team - all while getting great results. That is what a real client first law firm provides!

Comment: Over the course of the past eighteen months have I personally experienced the quality and integrity of Barone Defense Firm, specifically with Patrick Barone. Not only did he provide very keen guidance and council yet he met with me face to face less then a day after contacting the firm. Call it perfect scheduling, or call it immaculate timing, you can even call it luck, but I know what I call it and it is perfect placement of someone making changes in ones schedule to meet and discuss very concerning life changing legal proceedings.Patrick Barones knowledge and understanding of the court system and their judges was vital for my case. In fact, based upon my specific situation, Mr. Barone, with no care to cost or income placed with me with closer to my area local council to my court and the city I reside in. This was a remarkable testament to Barone Defense Firm simply because I was not just a quick retainer fee or a chance to upcharge me every additional hour or time required in court. Furthermore, Patrick on a regular basis check on me and how everything was fairing and not just with my court case.Truly I tell you: this was completely the opposite of what I have heard regarding contacting a lawyer you retain. Working under Patricks guidance was not just any lawyer taking your money, nor pushing you off to a secretary, or forcing my calls to a voice mail system. The Barone Defense Firm showed me what I needed to know and what I needed to do. Even more importantly Patrick Barone walked with me on Who I needed to know and not just who to know of.If any court case befalls you, do your research and then call Barone Defense Firm to confirm what is really in your best interest.

I am so happy that I found an attorney that cared about me as a person and but his heart into my defense. Patrick talked to me about me and helped with the anxiety, depression, alcoholism, and uncertainty before we discussed the facts of my case.I cant say enough about Patrick and the Barone Defense Firm. Dont have any regrets about the attorney that you hire to defend you in this matter. I dont, because I hired Patrick.

Comment: I think the best and most advisable thing at time when hiring an attorney beyond speaking with them and reading reviews is to read what they have written. It goes as evident if they know what they are talking about and if they can be persuasive. I mention this because this is the realm of Amazon and false reviews about books, just as it is the realm of the review below me from someone who posted the exact same review all over the place and goes by a false name to discredit. Or people posting adds on Craigslist to write positive reviews on YELP.You can email me if you want. I dont go about recommending or giving referrals lightly as its a reflection upon me. I have no doubt that Mr. Barone is the best DUI defense attorney in the State and one of the best in the country. If you think hell charge you just $1500, however...that really isnt my thought process unless things have changed dramatically or its some kind of near pro-bono case.Hiring him the prosecutor doesnt escalate anything, the prosecutor in an Oakland County for example quits because they dont want the headache and everything changes to bending over backwards not to have to work hard as a prosecutor and dealing with someone with firm chemistry knowledge almost always knows more about the datamaster or what is in use than the officer that uses it, or the technician that is required to check it, and every single nuance.There are many attorneys that will represent you but are terrified of actually going to trial and having to be on their feet. The prosecutors know these attorneys, in the long run. Mr. Barone seems to relish it. The prosecutors know this. My experience is they dont like losing and you need the threat that when Mr. Barone says hell go to trial what it implies inherent with it and the likelihood of the prosecutor having to do work for a living and probably doing so at home...and losing anyway.The entire process involves so much literature that upon reading it in the end, if you wish, youll probably know more than the jack of all trades lawyers that dont specialize in anything. DUI law is extremely complicated, at times more so than some murder cases times DUI and murder cases are the same thing of which Mr. Barone also has experience.I recommend checking an attorney for what they specialize in. Some do Criminal law and personal injury law, etc. Some do just Criminal law...then some do just DUI cases. Mr. Barone just does DUI type cases. Theres a point to this.Somebody who has written DUI books about DUI in Michigan that every defense attorney that does them and every prosecutor in Michigan has read probably has done enough research they wont charge you for the additional hours spent learning something new, because hes done it already. A large part of who you hire and not going to trial and getting a good deal has to do with the circumstances the prosecutor has to go through in moving forward. Not to give an association.... but when Geoffrey Fieger of all people mentioned how when you hire him prosecutors go...(#$#$#$) to themselves or other attorneys he had a point.Hes the best there is and has likely saved lives from all the anxiety and hell people go through with these kinds of cases.
