What Our Clients are Saying

Barton Morris, I can’t say enough about my gratitude for him.
His office staff was exceptional, I was dealing with my situation for more than six months, Barton and his staff was nothing less than 100%.
When we ended, in the court room, Barton was not only more prepared then the prosecution, but he was also more informed of all the technical information, then the prosecution. From what I seen the prosecution was blindsided with the wealth of information that Barton had attained.
Thank you for all of your hard work, even though you made it look easy I’m sure you had a lot of hard work!
Therese Todaro
I retained Barton for a DUI. During our initial meeting (interview), I was impressed with the confident style and professionalism he maintained. He was very courteous, ans seemed sincerely interested in my situation. I was very comfortable talking about my situation with him. He kept his promises to me and was able to perform at the highest level. He seemed have a fine professional relationship of the Prosecutor, and the entire Courtroom Staff. Barton was able to get me into an alternative program to Jail, which is exactly what I needed from him. His staff is excellent, and seemed very interested in assisting me with hearing dates and the like.

I recommend Barton and his great staff for anyone who needs an honest Professional who knows the ropes and can get it done properly.

Chris Ott
If you are in trouble in Metro Detroit, you should give him a call. He exudes confidence about his abilities in the courtroom and will put you at ease from the moment you step into his office. I have had other lawyers, even good lawyers but Barton Morris is the best I have ever seen. I had many years under my belt without being trouble but was pulled over without a license to drive from things that happened in the past. Barton assured me that he would not only get me out of trouble but put me on the road to get my license restored. Today I am driving without the fear of looking over my shoulder. Thank you Barton.
