I hired Ricardo Barrera to represent me. I had interviewed several different... attorneys in my area. Ricardo was the first attorney that actually took the time to listen to me. He even told me to take as much time as I needed to tell my story and concerns. Ricardo Barrera and Sara Stapleton-Barrera handled my case like a power team. My case was not a normal case, it had many unusual aspects to it. It was amazing to have someone with so much legal knowledge in my corner. I finally felt for the first time like someone powerful had my back and wouldn't give up until we won. Ricardo Barrera and Sara Stapleton-Barrera handled this case from beginning to end. They finally gave me a voice to stand up for what was right against someone in town that thought he was untouchable. My attorney gave me a sense of peace during what would have been a nightmare without them. The Barrera Law Firm is hands down the best law firm in town. I get to move forward with my life and not live in the threats and intimidation of my ex. Take comfort in knowing that if you retain Ricardo Barrera and his team for your legal needs, you have hired the best in town!read more

These guys know their stuff, they are very knowledgeable on how the law works.... They are very responsive and understanding to the clients needs, very detailed and informative. I couldn't have found a better team to get the job done the first time to win custody of my kids this year. I would reccomend them to any parent fighting for custody or any legal matter at that. Super impressed with them! They helped me win custody of my children this morning and I could help but cry happy tears when I left the court house, I am so grateful that this finally happened. Thank You Again, Rick and Alex, for your help!read more

First off I want it known that I was gonna write a great review no matter the... outcome. Mainly because Mr. Barrera is not here to get you out of the hole your in, he’s here to make sure that you get the best possible outcome for the situation you found yourself in. I was in dire need of assistance due to a very tough custody battle and I needed it quick. I sought help from Mr. Barerra and I was willing to pawn my valuables to get him to represent me. He worked with me with what I had even though he wasn’t benefiting from the situation. He put his trust in me to pay his VERY reasonable price in a REASONABLE time because at the end of the day he knew what mattered NOW was my children and nothing else. All I’ll say is he is a very honest and intelligent human who will fight for what matters most and he will do it quick. I won’t sit here and say I won because honestly there are no winners in custody battles. There is only the best suited. With that being said , I will say that I WAS found to be the best suited for my children all thanks to Mr Barrera. Thank you sir.read more

My brother wrote a review about Mr. Barrera, but I wanted to confirm the... excellent service and highest character of this man. We are from out of town and he was referred to us but we could not have been more pleased. He walked us through a very complicated situation having never met us. He was an amazing support in navigating something we were unfamiliar with and from a distance. He spent more time on this case than he had to but he never charged us more money. That is integrity. I highly recommend him!read more

My family was recently targeted by Child Protective Services. They made it... clear that they wanted to remove my children so I turned to The Barrera Law Firm. Mr. Barrera helped us navigate the entire process. He made sure their threats were simply that, words that could not hurt us. CPS found nothing (as expected) but they were still unsatisfied. They harassed us, they came into my home making accusations, trespassed, yelled, argued...they pulled their dirty little tricks. Every step of the way Mr. Barrera was there. He made it clear that CPS was not allowed to bully us or tear my family apart. He went above and beyond. He contacted their main headquarters and the CPS worker was no longer able to come onto my property or have any contact with me without proper supervision. I am thrilled to say the case is closed. The judge dismissed the case and CPS is out of my life. Mr. Barrera ensured my family stayed together. He would answer all my concerns the minute I voiced them. He is truly dedicated. He explains everything so well. I will never forget the first time he contacted CPS to inform them he was representing me. The silence from CPS followed by their unsteady voices was extremely satisfying. They thought they could target me and my family just because I am a step mom but he put them in their place really quick. I highly recommend Mr. Barrera.CPS tried to ruin my life. The Barrera Law Firm made sure that didn't happen. I advise anyone seeking help to voice it. They bully perfectly healthy and safe families. Now is the time to speak up. Don't be a victim like we were. My best decision was to hire Mr. Barrera and do what was right despite how scary it was at first. You can too.read more

My wife and I had need of a family attorney for an estate and we live in... Missouri, Mr Barrera unlike several attorneys actually took the time to speak with us long distance and agreed to represent us. The estate took eight months l longer than it should due to a family member and their attorney. Mr. Barrera gave us his cell phone number, he answered his phone and returned texts messages and provided first class service. Mr Barrera and his office took care of us when other attorneys in Harlingen would not even bother talking to us due to us being out of state. Mr Barrera did all the work he promised for his retainer in processing the estate and went above and beyond due to the added family issues and opposing attorney motions dragging out the estate settlement. The estate went into arbitration and Mr Barrera represented us during that process and we came out a winner in the end and very happy with the outcome.Bottom line is I have worked with other attorneys in the past and Mr Barrera unlike other attorneys he was very accessible when not in court, he personally returned calls, emails and text messages he did everything he could to make dealing with the loss of a family member and the associated legal issues as easy as possible with us living in Missouri we are grateful for his representation as our attorney and would recommend him and his law firm to others in need if his services. Mr Barrera did not nickle and dime us to death like a lot of Harlingen attorneys will, he gave us his price and he kept his word and worked hard to represent us and we were successful due to time and representation.read more

First of all i wan to thank Mr.Barrera for helping me to get my son back. It... wasnt a easy case, as there had only been 4 like mine in the state of Texas before with the last one being in 2010. In my situation, when my son was born my rights were taken away since the mother of my son let her Bf at the time sign my sons birth certificate. Automatically giving him rights to my son, and me not even being able to see him. It was tough to get the Judge to give me my rights and to take them away from the other guy. With DNA test evidence we were able to solve this case, we went through hell and back to get the test done but we were able to get it done. Mr.Barrera never quit on me even though everybody made it seem like it was impossible, and also when i was ready to quit he gave me hopes and told me he was going to get me my son back. I strongly recommend for everybody to have him as your attorney. Also want to thank our Family friend who Referred him to us. I will forever be grateful for him helping me because im always going to have my son in my life and im always going to be a part of his.read more

Highly recommend The Barrera Law Firm. At the time that I walked into his... office, I was a single mother of three trying my best to navigate my situation in court. I had absolutely no ability to communicate with my childs father and I was not able to ever find a consensus with him, so much in fact that we had to go through the courts due to that. Mr.Barrera took care of my family and handled my case very well and made sure that I was always in the know of what was happening. He was very honest with me as well and let me know what could happen what I should be concerned about and I am so grateful for finding his firm. I always recommend the best, and I recommend his Law Firm if you need an Attorney in a sensitive situation who will look out for you and take care of you in Court. Finally Mr. Barrerra got me everything I needed and I was able to move and start a better life with my kids. I am so Grateful to his Law Firm. Thank you .read more

I went through a divorce that started in January of 2018, by March it was... final. Ric was always available and always confident. I have so many positive comments to make but don`t know where to start !! His fees are very reasonable and I never felt I was padding his pocket. Availability is a big deal with me due to my demanding schedule, he made it a point to meet me at times that were probably way more convenient for me than they were for him !! Payment of fees were never a major point of discussion, I feel like Ric has compassion for his clients (me) and knows they`re going through a difficult time (or they wouldn`t need a lawyer). Ric is a positive person that is enjoyable to communicate with and is definitely listening while you are explaining your case, or even your weekend plans. I`d like to thank him for his professionalism, his compassion and his ability to work with people during their times of distress. Thanks Ricread more

Mr. Barrera is the epitome of a true professional. He isn't going to tell you... what you want to hear, he is going to be completely transparent and truthful while going above and beyond to ensure in the end you have a favorable outcome.

I would highly recommend Ricardo Barrera and the Barrera Law Firm to anybody... looking for representation in the south Texas area. In representing me, Ric proved to be a great attorney with an impressive knowledge of Texas law. He was laser-focused on my needs and goals and showed tremendous dedication, care and commitment to my case. I have never had an attorney so responsive and reachable. Ric did not hesitate to give me his cell number and encourage me to text him with any questions. Whenever I reached out he would always respond almost immediately with clear, straight-forward answers. In my experience, Ric had a great working relationship and extensive experience with the attorneys and courts in Cameron County which enabled him to resolve my case in a speedy manner and prepare me for any questions that may have been asked in court. I am very grateful to Ric for being so helpful to me and going the extra mile in my case.read more

I have known Ric now for over four years. When I left an abusive relationship... back in 2014, Ric believed my story when others would not, and stood up for me even when some of my own family members refused to help me. At first, my ex tried to hire Ric out from under me, but Ric caught on to his ploy and refused to speak with him even though I had not had the opportunity to pay him a retainer at that point. His word was already his bond. He always made sure to make me feel comfortable by allowing me to text or call him when any issue would arise, and he also gave me tremendous advice in those times. Even as the circumstances surrounding my divorce continued long after the papers were signed, Ric still cared enough to follow through with all promises, to make sure that everything was taken care of in the very end. I can not help but to highly recommend The Honorable Ricardo Barrera to anyone looking for a family law attorney in Harlingen or Brownsville. He will fight for you regardless of your financial situation, and his integrity speaks for itself by being nothing short of impeccable.read more

He is a great attorney. Will do everything to get the case done. I have court... in Edinburgh and he is from harlingen so for him to drive that much for a case shows a lot. He will answer questions and pick up phone calls even if its on a weekend. Not like other attorneys who NEVER answer the phone! I am so happy he was able to settle my case, i had a different attorney who kept rescheduling the court date and just trying to get me to settle for less than justified amount. He is awesome!

Excellent, hands on attorney. I was looking for someone to take my father in... laws case for a commercial traffic ticket , and every firm I would call in the area gave me a runaround and wouldn't connect me with an actual attorney to speak with. Mr. Barrera was the only one who called back. He reassured me there was a high chance of removing the ticket and if he didn't succeed he wouldn't take the second half of the fee. Nonetheless, he was able to remove the ticket! His staff is very responsive with any questions as well.read more

I could fill a book describing how unbelievably happy and grateful I am for... everything that Mr. Barrera did for me and my family! I am a father living in Huntsville, Texas, 7 hours from the valley and I was a few days away from watching my two beautiful daughters moved out of state by their mother right after their summer vacation with me without being able to do anything about it. I could not find a lawyer in Huntsville that would take my case on short notice, much less even take my phone call and even if they were interested, I could not afford their high fees. Anything that I needed filed would have to be done in the valley so I called 20 different attorneys down south and no one would or wanted to help me. I was ready to give up and accept that as a father the odds were against me and every attorney knew it but I decided to call one more lawyer. When I called Ricardo I was surprised when he was the one that answered the call and at first he sounded very reserved. So I began retelling the same story that I had told all the other attorneys and he immediately took an interest in what I had to say though I was prepared for him to eventually give me the same response that I had become used to. But he didn't. He quickly assured me that he could help me and would help me and without demanding payment upfront he immediately went to work for me and began the filing process. He was able to help me keep my daughters in my care until our court date but then hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area which deeply affected our area and once again he went to work and got us a continuance because we were unable to travel to the valley. 21 days later we were in the Cameron county for court, and despite having everything against me and her attorney throwing every technicality at the judge to get the case dismissed, Ricardo was prepared for all of it and fought hard for my family. He accomplished something that is very rare in the state of Texas; he won me temporary custody of my daughters! I was prepared for the court to rule against me but because of Mr. Barrera's unbelievable experience, extraordinary work ethic, and unwavering commitment to my case as well as I carrying himself with a steel confidence that I didn't even have, I walked out of the court room with custody of my daughters. We still have more hurdles to get over down the line but I have no doubt that Ricardo will approach it with the same determination that he demonstrated for this part of our case and no matter what happens I will be forever grateful for what he has done for me and my family. I said earlier that I could fill a book with my praise but for now let me just conclude with these final words; anyone out there that is on the verge of losing hope and ready to give up, I can say without hesitation and with complete confidence that hope has a name and it's Ricardo Barrera!D.O.

We found Mr. Barrera on Google reviews when we needed an attorney to handle a... case which was down in the Valley. We were quickly given proof that the highly rated reviews were valid. His response time is quick. When he is not available, his secretary is quick to respond and relay messages to him. He is professional and cares about his clients. We trust you will be just as satisfied as our family is when you choose him as your attorney.read more

I would highly recommend using Ricardo's services for any family law case. His... knowledge of family law is extremely valuable and helps when you need to talk about the specifics of your case. I was able to come to him with a special child visitation case and he handled it in a timely manner with great success. He eased my concerns stating facts of the law constantly and we received what he asked. His pricing is extremely reasonable, especially for the quality you receive from his office. Ricardo is my lawyer of choice in the RGV area.read more

My name is Javier Saldivar. I am very grateful for what Mr. Barrera has done... for me. When I first came in, Mr. Barrera was very honest with me. He said he could not guarantee anything, but that he would work very hard to win my case. He told me that in order for us to win the case, I needed to follow his instructions. The case was a very hard case from the start. He told me it would be very difficult, but he would not take a case he did not believe in. We followed all the instructions and we won the case. I got exactly what I asked for. My opinion about Mr. Barrera is he is a very intelligent person that knows the law and if you follow his instructions there is a big possibility you will win the case and once you let him in your life he will be your number one fan.read more

Mr. Barrera is an amazing attorney and person. He went above and beyond. He... really cared about me as a person, my family, and my case. He gave me an amazing rate, and ended up having to do ten times more work than we originally thought. He kept his original price and did amazing work. I won my case and got more than I even asked for. Also he was on top of things answering messages and questions right away. I would recommend him over and over, thank you so much Mr. Barrera!read more

Mr. Barrera has handled a number of different type cases for me over the past... several years and has always been extremely professional. He has explained all the issues to me and helped me to make decisions that were sometimes not very easy. I have appreciated his willingness to tackle something that he hasn't had much experience with and for being upfront that he would have to dig in a get more information before saying he would take the case. He truly isn't just "about the money" but has a real interest in helping his clients resolve their issues. I would highly recommend The Barrera Law Firm.read more

I will always be grateful for the faith and courage that Mr. Barrera saw in me.... He helped me win sole custody of my child in a termination of parental rights case against my child biological father. It was the hardest thing I have ever gone through in my life. I cried many times due to the heartache of being a mother and trying to due what was best for my child. Mr. Barrera always found the time to meet with me to answer any questions or doubts that I had. He explained to me in detail what we where up against and what steps we had to take in the process. He also responded very quickly through email and telephone. I recommend Mr. Barrera to my family, friends and anyone who is in need of a outstanding attorney. L. Ayala San Benito, Texasread more

I especially was satisfied with his fee schedule and when I had a problem with the property turnover he filed a second suit to protect my interests. I cannot recommend him highly enough.read more
