Testimonials

AF – Civil Tort Defense

Evan is a magnificent attorney. He is professional, honest, knowledgeable, and surprisingly kind. While litigation is extremely stressful, the silver lining was learning that there are good people in the legal profession.

J.L. Divorce and Custody

Great attorney.  You’re probably thinking I got everything that I wanted in the divorce and that is why I’m writing this testimonial? That is not the case (no pun intended!).  Evan got me a fair settlement that I am very pleased with.  I quickly realized that in a divorce proceeding, you won’t get everything you want or think you deserve.  Evan is a straight shooter, very competent, very knowledgeable concerning divorce proceedings.   I appreciated Evan’s common sense, to-the-point style.  He did not make grand promises and did a great job of aligning my expectations with reality, and for that I am thankful.  Evan did a great job of returning phone calls or emails in a prompt manner and listened to my concerns and addressed them in a compassionate and thoughtful manner.    I also thought his invoices were very accurate and detailed.  I would highly recommend Evan if you going through a divorce.

J.H. Anchorage Child Custody Case

“Evan was beyond amazing when navigating through my custody case. At first before I had a lawyer, I was lost on where to even start. One call to Evan, and a quickly scheduled meeting, and my case was well on its way. He is very down to earth and honest, while still remaining very professional. I couldn’t have found a better lawyer to handle my case. I ended up with full custody, and every stipulation I asked for, without even a hesitation of the judge. Evan knows exactly what he is doing, and like I said, he is a master of the courtroom. He will fight for you until the end, while also being personable. You feel like you are going to court with a lifelong friend. I could also tell that he is very well respected around the Alaskan Legal Community. That showed me just how knowledgeable and trustworthy he is. If you want a lawyer that has your back, and can no doubt get you what you are fighting for, Evan Barrickman is your guy. I couldn’t have been happier with his service, and would recommend him to anyone. A++”

Amazed and Thankful

I am amazed by, and thankful for the work that The Law Office of Evan Barrickman has done for me! I had gone through four previous attorneys who were unable to help. I was about to give up when I was referred to Evan Barrickman. 

When I first met Evan, I was impressed with his sharp intellect and confident demeanor. After I started working with him, I was further impressed by his ethics and dedication to the highest good of his profession. I could tell that he really cared about helping to ‘right a wrong’ in my situation. 

Evan is incredibly personable, was straight-forward about my case, and he did a tremendous amount of research regarding my situation. His assistance enabled me to recover so much more than I would have otherwise. 

I rarely write reviews or make recommendations, but for a professional like Evan, who truly went the extra mile (or two!), I am compelled to rave about how happy I have been with him and his stellar work. Thank you so much, Evan!

Anchorage Child Custody Modification

Evan did an amazing job with my custody case. It was messy from the beginning. He walked me through every mountain we had to overcome and listening to his advice and guidance throughout the process was the best thing. We overcame every obstacle and he got me full custody of my 3 kids. He was attentive, courteous, honest and I couldn’t be more grateful to him. This is the lawyer you want. No doubt about it.

Divorce

Mr Barrickman came highly recommended to me by a different lawyer. After the year long journey we went through for my extremely complicated divorce, custody battle, and order of protection; I will forever recommend him.

My multi-faceted battle didn’t start the first day I walked through Mr Barrickman’s door. It started with my first phone call, when he advised me of my first step, and exactly how to go about it.

After the years of turning to other resources for help and failing to receive it, I walked into Evans office without much hope for a resolution, much less a positive one. As we began to discuss everything I had endured for the past decade, and despite the shame and embarrassment that flooded me, Evan began to formulate a plan.  One that started a shimmer of hope for my family.  A plan that was clearly explained and put me at the helm. Mr Barrickman was very straight forward about what each choice would require from me in order to be successful. No matter what the nature of those requirements were, embarrassing or regrettable, Evan handled it all with sensitivity and without judgement, demonstrating the consummate professional that he is.

Despite the complexity of my cases, Evan never wavered. He easily navigated every obstacle we faced with integrity and intelligence.

As we made our way through the nerve racking and emotionally draining process, Evan always made himself available to encourage my confidence and answer my questions. I never walked into a court room feeling unprepared or uneasy.  I always knew the possible outcomes, but I never felt lost. Additionally, I never felt alone. I knew that Evan was invested in my case, and he truly cared about how this would turn out for me. I wasn’t just another paycheck.

Divorce, Custody, and Protection Orders aren’t typically very neat; but Evan helped me turn it into a something I could grow from. A platform to close that chapter of my past and to launch the restart of my life.

The last time I walked out of Mr Barrickman’s office, I left with a lighter step and brimming with optimism. Not only did we prevail, we did so honestly and with out a shred of arrogance.

Sometimes you need more than a lawyer, sometimes you need someone in your corner. That’s Evan Barrickman.

You would be hard pressed to find anywhere in Alaska a more competent, timely and ethical attorney than Evan. He went the extra mile for us and we will always be grateful to him.

Knowledgable, Passionate, & Motivated- People’s Choice

I’m speechless right now! I’ve dealt with 5 different lawyers regarding a complicated case over the course of 1 year (3 of which were expensive), and I KEPT getting the “run around.” Just money wasted and still no answers to my concerns. I can honestly say I’ve never ended any dialogues with them the way I ended mine today with Mr. Barrickman feeling a sense of relief like a 50lb weight was lifted off of me! Not only did he thoroughly answer ALL of my questions, but he went beyond expectations by CLEARLY defining/explaining what steps to take toward my journey for resolution. He was personable, extremely knowledgeable in regards to family law, and what he wasn’t sure about he took the time in that very moment to research so that he could provide me with honest, accurate information. I SINCERELY felt as if he cared about my dilemmas. I’ve never physically met him and this was our very 1st conversing, but I would recommend him WITHOUT hesitation to anyone needing an amazing lawyer. You will immediately sense that this man has TRUE passion for what he does. I am in tears right now b/c I genuinely taught myself not to expect much from a lawyer… Until NOW! I don’t have to waste any more money… I can finally get the ball rolling in my case. Mr. Barrickman is truly prayers answered! DO NOT sell yourself short and miss the opportunity to have a motivated attorney serve you… I know you are probably just as tired as I was with the back and forth w/the law/justice system. Do yourself a favor and choose Mr. Barrickman. I have absolutely ZERO regrets and would do so again w/out looking any further! Unfortunately, myself and all other parties involved in my case now reside in TX and he doesn’t practice here, or else I would’ve hired him on the spot. Excuse the lengthiness, but I’m excited right now. He took the time to serve me, now I’m just attempting to do the same.
