Veronica T. Barton founded the Barton Law Firm in order to provide a highly personalized, detailed-oriented defense for every single one of her clients. Rather than handing cases off between multiple attorneys, as many firms routinely do, Veronica has found that taking the time to personally understand every single detail of her client's case gets outcomes that may have not been possible otherwise. 
Veronica received her bachelor's degree from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She then went on to earn her law degree cum laude from Loyola University Chicago. Veronica is admitted to practice law in the State of California, the U.S Federal District Court for the Central District of California, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Veronica has represented clients charged with all levels of criminal defenses, from simple traffic offenses to serious and violent felonies.
One of Veronica's most memorable victories was a recent jury trial in which her client was charged with felony domestic violence. His ex-girlfriend had accused him of strangling her. Although her client was offered probation at the last minute, he didn't take the deal. He  couldn't; he would've lost his job and ruined his future prospects. But if they lost at trial, he faced up to four years in prison. 
At trial, the prosecution presented photos of black bruises in the shape of fingers on the ex's neck. The prosecution presented multiple witnesses, including an expert witness who testified that the dark bruises on the ex's neck were caused by strangulation. They presented the tearful testimony of his ex-girlfriend.
But Veronica argued that her client had acted in self-defense: that the ex had attacked her client first. She ruthlessly cross-examined his ex. She argued each and every inconsistency to the jury and tore apart the ex's credibility. In the late morning, just after closing arguments, the jury began deliberations. By the end of lunchtime, they had a verdict: not guilty
Not only does Veronica fight hard for her clients, but her tireless attention to detail ensures that every single one of her clients receives the best possible outcome. To talk to Veronica now, call her at (213) 377-6102.
