What People Are Saying...

"I highly recommend Mike Barnes. Not only does Mike, a retired Louisville police officer,  have a great deal of street experience in working and observing accident scenes, he is very highly qualified in the field of accident reconstruction. Recently, Mike assisted me in an accident case involving an auto /tractor trailer. Mike's expertise was invaluable to me. Mike was especially helpful to me during my preparation to take the deposition of the defendant's accident reconstructionist expert. Mike was there for me 24/7 and was always glad to answer my questions and address my concerns. The case settled shortly after taking the defendant's expert deposition. Never in my practice will I handle a case involving accident reconstruction without consulting with Mike."

"I have been a trial lawyer since 1990, and have known and worked with Mike Barnes almost as long. Mike has a unique combination of experience, technical ability and communication skills that enable him to reach the right answer and back it up. His cutting edge knowledge of accident reconstruction, his attention to detail and his professionalism are unmatched. I strongly recommend him."
