Michael is a wealth of legal knowledge. Even when we first met as opposing counsel (he a prosecutor, me a defense attorney) Michael knew the law so well it made it hard to argue with him on even the most minute details. He fights for his clients aggressively and the results speak for themselves.

Attorney Barber and Attorney Rosenbloom did exactly that.

Mr. Barber is the best there is. I retained Mr. Barber as an attorney on my case. It was a first time charge for me, but thanks to his and his office’s communication, professionalism, and excellent customer service, an experience that could have been completely nerve wrecking turned into an experience that brought me comfort. Mr. Barber and his office displayed extreme compassion towards me and my situation, answered every question I’ve had with patience, empathy, and so much knowledge. He fought hard for me with my case to get the best possible resolution and I can not be thankful enough!

My training as both a prosecutor and defense attorney gives me the ability to know what the other side is thinking and better defend DUI cases. Working for my family law firm familiarized me with civil law but making a foray into criminal law with the City of Atlanta Municipal Court led to my true passion in criminal law specifically DUI, drug and traffic cases.

I have been invited by other county prosecutors to be a guest instructor for DUI instruction courses at both the Georgia Public Safety and Training Center and various county locations. I also had the opportunity to design and teach a DUI class at the Atlanta Police Department Training Center, and assisted in redesigning the current DUI court system with the City of Atlanta Municipal Court. My training at the Georgia Public Safety and Training Center (GPSTC, the same training center where State Troopers receive their training and where all police officers supplement their training) helped me learn what both the police and State Troopers learn to make their DUI cases.

After returning to defense work, I continue to help those in need. My range of skills and training is a deadly combo to assist people charged with a DUI!

Legal Answers
38 Questions Answered
Q. Car insurance company totaled my car out, but only wants to pay for the rear end damage. Their client is at fault.
A: Normally, When some is hit from behind it is the person that follows behind fault. The statute is referred to as following too closely. HOWEVER, if you have witnesses who can show that the person in front improperly stopped in the roadway (another statute) and thereby caused the accident then you can transfer fault to the hit and run driver. Not to mention where there is a hit and run it can also transfer fault. You may need to call and speak with an attorney and figure out what your next step should be.
Q. Dui less safe drugs ticket, not pulled over,in parking lot of store
A: There is a lot of information you have left out in order for any attorney to give you direction. However, none of it should be posted because if the prosecution finds anything they can use against you they will. You need to start calling attorneys for free consultations to see if the hiring of a attorney can help your situation; especially if you were taking prescription medications.
Q. In a dui ...dring under the influence of drugs do they have to test you for the drug
A: In Georgia, They will usually test under the DRE (drug recognition expert) guidelines for field sobriety examinations. However, They don’t have to test for the specific drug itself as there is no requirement for that.
