About

The Law Office of Maria H. Barrett, LLC was founded in 2016.

Attorney Maria Barrett was born in Lučenec, Slovakia. She studied English in school, and at the age of 18 traveled to the United States on a J-1 Cultural Exchange Visa as a child care au pair. Once in the United States, she met her future husband, a member of the US military, and decided to make the US her home. Her husband sponsored her for a K-1 fiancé visa, and after a short stint back in Slovakia, she returned to the United States. She subsequently became a legal permanent resident, and eventually a citizen all while pursuing her legal education.

Mrs. Barrett has graduated Summa Cum Laude from Hawaii Pacific University with BA in International Relations. She completed her legal education and graduated with her Juris Doctor from the Pennsylvania State University Dickinson School of Law. During law school and shortly after graduation, she worked alongside attorneys in the State and private sectors where she was able to mold her own style while gaining more exposure and experience. When the time came, Mrs. Barrett opened her own practice with strong support from her mentors.

The focus of Mrs. Barrett’s practice is on the client.  She strives to provide modern, 21st century representation in a legal system that is often slow to adapt and lags behind the modern era.  She is also proficient in using modern technology to communicate in a timely manner and to keep client’s expenses down. Here, you, the client, never pay for “after hours” assistance because the hours are flexible to suit your needs.

Having proceeded through the immigration system herself, Mrs. Barrett knows firsthand how difficult the immigration process is. More importantly, she understands the difficulties that new immigrants to the United States face.
