Civil Litigation

170 College Street, Macon, GA 31201


I came to this profession for the clients and with a goal of helping people navigate their legal problems. While there are certainly plenty of tough days, I have never been able to say that I do not truly enjoy what I do. I am proud of work alongside of other passionate attorneys, who selectively fight only the good fights, and who all have a keen eye for detail. My most treasured moments are when I get to see the client win, whether it is building their newly adoptive family, opening the storefront of the buisness we helped create, or reaching the resolution of a business or employment dispute. I cannot make any gaurantees about outcomes, but I can guarantee that I will always do my best.

In an era when businesses and individuals alike are bombarded with complex legal matters and confusing bureaucratic regulations, Adrian L. Barton, is an experienced and award-winning attorney who is helping clients through the legal quagmire. With impeccable academic credentials and 18 years experience with top law firms in both California and Arizona, Ms. Barton is now in business for herself, concentrating on Business Litigation and Employment Law. The “Obamacare” health care plan, which has created many questions but few simple answers, is also among her areas of practice.

She is a three-time recipient of the Ilene and Michael Shaw Public Service Award – the Federal Bar Association’s most prestigious national public service award. Among other things, she is listed in Latino American Who’s Who and has been selected for AzBusiness magazine’s Top Lawyers List. Respected for developing innovative and effective strategy in challenging cases, Ms. Barton has years of litigation experience with one of the top law firms in the world, Morrison Foerster, and at one of California’s largest minority-owned firms, Alvarado Smith. Before starting her own private practice, she was an equity shareholder at Sacks Tierney, P.A., in Scottsdale, where she successfully represented clients in non-compete agreements and breach of contract disputes. She is admitted to practice before all state and federal courts in Arizona and California, and also has represented clients before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, National Labor Relations Board, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
