A few years back I received an early morning distressed call from my mother in law. Her daughter, my sister in law, had been arrested out of state on a NY warrant and was held in a local sheriff’s office pending extradition. We had no other information. No details on the warrant, no information on the extradition, how long it would take, leaving us all guessing and most importantly, worried.
I called a few attorneys I know and gave this information as that was all I had at the time. As the day went, we learned more of the details. Presenting these to the attorneys I had spoken with earlier, I received a few recommendations to obtain representation for Sis on a potentially severe criminal matter. One of those recommendations was that of Kevin Kearon, an attorney at Barket Marion. The attorney that gave this recommendation is one of the hardest working, tough yet fair, and most reputable attorneys I’ve ever known. Together, I with my in laws interviewed the attorneys recommended. My octogenarian in-laws have not had much experience in legal affairs; I have had plenty. Yet we both reached a conclusion which was borne out by the recommendations from his peers, confirmed by our meeting with Kevin and, call it the intuition of people that have lived a long time, a comfort and confidence he instilled within my in-laws that he would be Sis’ greatest advocate in seeking justice for her.
Within hours of engaging Barket Marion, my sister in law was released on her own recognizance as negotiated by the Barket Marion team and was able to fly to NY and surrender with Kevin by her side. This personal attention continued as the case traversed the system, and we were provided the highest level of detail at each junction. Barket possesses a team of experts in house, again making our comfort level and breadth of knowledge as to activities presented from both sides and the repercussions. I have to truly say that a primary factor in the comfort level and confidences our family possessed were attributable chiefly to the ability of Kevin Kearon. His talent to positively communicate and articulate clearly and firmly not only his belief of the results to be attained, but also his legal reasoning of his conviction, that was put in simple clear language thus giving us the security in knowing Sis was not only in the most capable hands, but that we had made the right decision in hiring Kevin and his firm. It’s rather ironic but I hope never to have to recommend Kevin Kearon and Barket Marion for the obvious reason. However life happens and our family was most fortunate in receiving such a recommendation. In that vein, I would gladly do the same knowing that it will likely provide the comfort and confidence that we came to know and trust.
