From Our Clients
“Barrera was my attorney for a criminal and misterminor case it took almost three years. I couldn’t ask for a better attorney. At first I was a little nervous because he is a very quiet man, but when he is up there asking questions and cross examination Stephen is amazing and I knew i would be alright. We won both cases with no plea deals. I would recommend Stephen Barrera to everyone. I wish his law firm many years of success. Thank you Stephen Barrera for helping me keep my freedom.”
