Ken Barnes is an attorney who understands the anxiety and worries his clients face.   He genuinely cares about your legal problems and will help you resolve them through the least stressful but most effective means possible so you can get on with your life.

In providing you with legal representation, Ken’s philosophy is to listen carefully to you, give you honest and clear legal advice, explain your various options, and work tirelessly to achieve your goals.

Ken has more than 25 years of experience helping clients resolve legal disputes and improve their lives. He focuses his practice on civil litigation including complex litigation, class actions, and appeals. 

In addition to litigation, Ken is experienced in mediation and collaborative law as alternative ways of resolving disputes.   When appropriate, he will make every effort to negotiate a successful outcome for his clients without the time, expense, and anxiety of litigation.  If an adequate settlement is not possible, however, Ken will vigorously pursue your interests in court.  His many years of experience have made him quite successful in litigation.
