About Us


Barclay My name is Barclay Banister and since 1999 I have been the owner/proprietor of the Law Office of Barclay W. Banister. I am a native of Princeton, Kentucky and received my undergraduate degree from Murray State University in 1990 and my law degree from Mississippi College School of Law in 1994. Prior to 1999, I was an associate attorney for the Saladino Law Firm (*now Saladino, Oakes and Schaaf) in Paducah, KY.

Since 1994, I have been representing good folks injured due to the negligence of others; those injured at work; those accused of crimes and those facing divorce and child custody/visitation issues. I never represent insurance companies or employers; instead, my focus is on helping regular folks navigate the sometimes complex legal system. I realized a long time ago that sometimes bad things happen to good people and, should you choose to retain my services, I make the following promises to you:

•   I will personally handle your case. It will not be handled by a paralegal or legal assistant. (Your case deserves My personal attention).

•   I will promptly return your telephone calls. There is nothing worse than feeling like you are being ignored by your lawyer.

•   I will keep you up-to-date on your case. You won't be left in the dark about what is happening with your case.

•   I will be available to answer your questions. I am always just a phone call away.

•   I will always give you straight answers. I believe in offering honest opinions and evaluations about your case. If I can't help you, I'll tell you upfront.

Since this office’s inception, I have been extremely successful in obtaining significant monetary awards for deserving clients. In fact, I have collected nearly ten million dollars for those clients either through settlement, verdict or at administrative hearing.

Remember, the personal service that began with your initial phone call will continue on through to the conclusion of your case. I will personally put my experience and knowledge to work for you and I will work tirelessly to get you the compensation that you deserve.
