At the law firm of Michelle A. Barry, P.A., we understand that having to deal with family law issues can be an extremely heavy burden to carry. The stress and anxiety that they bring can cause you to make poor decisions and sometimes cause you to do things that result in criminal charges. Our commitment to you is that we will be there for you no matter what.

Attorney Michelle A. Barry began her legal career as a prosecutor, where she handled thousands of cases involving drug crimes, DUI and domestic violence. In private practice, she has worked as a criminal defense lawyer representing clients in similar cases. If you are facing criminal charges related to your family law case, you can count on us to provide a strong defense and work tirelessly for a favorable outcome in your case.

Ready To Support You At All Times

It is important for any individual facing criminal charges as well as divorce to understand how one can affect the other, and seek to avoid the negative impact of a criminal conviction altogether. Criminal charges of any kind can complicate the divorce process as well as interfere with family law matters, like custody and visitation arrangements or lead to requests for supervised visitation.

How Our Firm Can Help You

When you hire our firm, you will work directly with our lead lawyer Michelle A. Barry throughout the process. She will work with you to understand the details of the incident and look at all the police reports and other evidence the prosecution is using to prepare their case.
