After my ex-spouse made a custody change without discussing with me, I contacted Mr. Pokras.He immediately understood the urgency of my case, had paperwork complete the same night and a court hearing for early the following week. Not that there are winners/losers in family court, but with Mr. Pokras’ help we were 3 for 3. I was amazed (after the fact) to find out how well known he is and more importantly how well respected he is by judge’s and staff in Ventura County. What I liked most was he listened to me, allowed me to proceed without mudslinging and just went above and beyond.

Barton Pokras was, and is, a God send! He was highly professional, remarkably proficient in the law and all its nuances, and persistently resolved in achieving what was equitable with incredibly creativeness, especially in the courtroom. Yet never did I once feel like another revenue client. Mr. Pokras called me often just to see how I was doing….on HIS time. His incredible wisdom, patience and counseling regarding my emotions and situation have proved invaluable. And along with his sincere compassion for me as a person, he shattered the perceived mold of a typical lawyer. Although I did not want the divorce, Mr. Pokras kept the painful event to a minimum by finalizing the divorce in 4 1/2 months from the time I retained him. As a skilled mediator, I highly recommend Mr. Pokras to anyone who wants justice to prevail…and a rock to hold on to

My experience with Barton Pokras started out great and just got better! At the outset, he was able to put me at ease during a very difficult divorce process. His expertise was evident immediately. More importantly, he was an engaged advocate committed to protecting my position throughout a lengthy negotiation with my ex-wife and her counsel. He paid sincere attention to my biggest concerns and never let anything “fall through the cracks.” Basically, my wife left me after 22 years of marriage. My greatest fear was that I would have to pay large sums of alimony for a very long time. Miraculously, Barton somehow convinced all concerned that no alimony payments would be appropriate (that’s right – zero!) largely on the argument that I was committed to finishing the job of putting ours sons through college in these difficult economic times. His measured, consistent, calm approach finally won the day and I will forever be grateful. Choosing Barton Pokras as my attorney was one of the best decisions I have ever made! He operates as a true fiduciary for his clients and I am very proud to recommend his services.

Barton is a wonderful human being to have in your corner through a tumultuous and emotional divorce proceeding. Before hiring Barton I asked him to keep the focus on my daughter’s future interests, and not get distracted by the emotional roller coaster. He did just that~! My daughter’s future was preserved as I intended thanks to Barton’s perseverance and patience through the proceedings. I highly recommend Barton

Mr. Pokras and his staff are second to none. He is extremely knowledgeable and helpful on a legal as well as a personal level. Barton exceeded all of my expectations as my divorce attorney. In a case that can only be described as “difficult”, his professional demeanor and patience with the other party was a breath of fresh air. I would highly recommend Mr. Pokras to anyone seeking legal counsel in relation to a divorce or separation.

Barton Pokras was the first Attorney who actually listened to me and took the time to understand what was truly going on with my custody matter. He was professional, kind, and really cared about what happened with my case. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney with experience and integrity. He is truly a first rate attorney.
