If you are in legal trouble, I can help.

The law firm of James R. Barnes is dedicated to servicing the Pensacola area with their legal needs relating to criminal defense and personal injury. If you have been arrested or charged with a criminal offense, it is critical for you to contact a reputable criminal defense attorney, as soon as possible. Regardless of the charge, you have rights that must be protected. You deserve to have an attorney that will aggressively fight for you. The serious consequences that come with a conviction in Florida can be devastating. Even first time arrests can result in expensive fines, permanent criminal records, loss of employment, probation, jail time and state prison incarceration.

Every county and courthouse has its own way of doing business. I understand and know how to work the system and what it takes to get the best case outcome. It’s not only what you know, it’s how to get RESULTS.

I know your legal situation is stressful and I do not want to compound your stress with unattainable fees. Your first consultation is FREE of charge. I offer flexible fee structures to meet virtually every budget. Ultimately, what you decide to do is up to you. I encourage you to explore this website, meet with me to better understand your particular charges, and the ways we can defend your case and the possible consequences that follow. However, if all you do is read this and move on, my parting advise is: don’t try and handle your legal predicament without consulting advise from an experienced criminal defense attorney.
