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.
