Law Office of John A. Barber — Delaware Criminal Defense Attorney

I understand that any time the Government accuses you of committing a criminal offense — whether it is a traffic violation, a misdemeanor, or felony charge — it is a serious matter with potential life-long implications for you.

And when the Law Office of John A. Barber is retained for your case, and it is time to go to court, you get personal, experienced representation by me, not another attorney in my firm or a law clerk.

Before becoming a member of the Delaware State Bar, I served as a paratrooper in the military and as a combat soldier. I know what it is to fight. I then worked my way up the ranks to become a supervising prosecutor at the Delaware Department of Justice. There I saw firsthand how much power the Government has to shift the scales of justice in its favor and change people’s lives forever. I decided it was time to become an advocate to protect the rights of those charged by the Government, so I started my own firm focusing solely in criminal defense. I have been practicing as a criminal trial attorney for 20 years.

I have been consistently named a Top Lawyer in Delaware Today Magazine every year since 2017, a distinction voted on by lawyers throughout the State of Delaware. I have the skills and experience to ensure you get the dedicated defense you deserve.

John was a fantastic defense attorney. Being that I have never been in any legal trouble in my life and had no idea what to do, not only was he affordable compared to other attorneys for first offense, but he has been doing this a long time and expla…”
