Trial Lawyers

Proven Results In Groundbreaking Cases

A Results-Oriented Litigation Firm

Whatever legal dispute you face, you want a results-oriented law firm. You want a firm that will zero in on the problem and work quickly to come up with an effective strategy to reach a positive outcome.

At Barney & Karamanis, LLP, our focus is on dispute resolution. Simply put, we resolve legal disputes by any means necessary. In some cases, that means pre-litigation to resolve disputes before they escalate to the stage of litigation. In others, it means negotiation or utilizing mediation or other means of alternative dispute resolution to reach the desired outcome.

As trial attorneys, we are not content limiting ourselves to a motion practice. We have the proven ability to argue cases at trial and always prepare for this possibility, though it is rare.
