Our philosophy is to give personal attention to every client. We are dedicated to providing the highest standard of professional representation. We understand that to provide the best service available we must be honest and prompt. Our clients can expect a truthful and direct analysis of their case and that we will spend the necessary time to successfully handle their matters.
Mr. John W. Barton graduated from the University of California, Berkeley in 1978 with Bachelor’s Degrees in economics and social welfare. He obtained his Juris Doctorate Degree in 1981 from the University of Santa Clara Law School. Mr. Barton has been an attorney for over 30 years. He began his legal career in December of 1981 at the Orange County Public Defender’s Office after passing the California bar examination in November of the same year. Starting his career in the public sector allowed Mr. Barton to develop and hone his trial skills. From 1987 to 1991, he worked at the law firm of Buchalter, Nemer, Fields & Younger. In February 1991, he left Buchalter to open his own law office.
This experience provides Mr. Barton with the judgment and skill necessary to aggressively represent his clients. Mr. Barton has had more than 100 trials in his career. Surprisingly, many litigators have practiced law for years without ever arguing a case before a jury. We pride our self on making a commitment to go the distance on every case we accept. It is because of our courtroom success that we often achieve extremely favorable settlements for our clients prior to trial or, in some instances, before a lawsuit is filed.
Mr. Barton is admitted to practice before all the Courts of the state of California, the U.S. District Court, Central District of California, the U.S. District Court Southern District of California, the U.S. District Court Northern District of California, the U.S. District Court Eastern District of California, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
