I can speak on my experience with Stephen Barker he has guided me in the right direction with my family and friends, helped all of us through our hardest times,through divorce /custody/criminal from felonies /misdimeanors,/ protesting a last rights will, stephen Barker will never do you wrong (but may I say be truthful with him he's on your side don't b.s him he will protect you) No one out of my friends or family's ever got any type of trouble / punishments through the court systems. Not to brag he's as good as they come. He don't b.s anyone tells v you like it is. Word of advise can't get no better. But if you want a discounted rate tell him you don't like the New York Jets lol just act like you love them. Then tell him Todd Kehren said go Steelers. Just joking (I wish who ever reads this the best and I will state one last time Stephen Barker, don't want you to go to jail he has many connects and peeps in the system been around for a little bit) + he will go down swinging.
