We started Barden & Barden in 2016 to help people who are at a power disadvantage against large corporations, insurance companies, and governments. We believe strongly in the legal system’s ability to protect rights, compensate victims, and achieve justice. Whether a client has been injured or improperly charged with a crime, we use the legal system to bring fairness and justice to those we help.
