Biography

Patrick T. Barone is the founding partner and CEO of The Barone Defense Firm, whose practice is limited to zealously defending citizens accused of State and Federal crimes. The Firm is headquartered in Birmingham, Michigan, and also maintains offices in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Mr. Barone is an adjunct professor at the Western Michigan University's Thomas M. Cooley Law School and he served on the Faculty Advisory Board for BAC-Tracker International, Inc. Mr. Barone frequently lectures at national and state seminars attended by lawyers, judges, and scientists, and he has provided expert commentary in newspapers, on television and on the radio. In 2010 Mr. Barone accepted a position as a legal skills instructor for the CDAM/Cooley Trial Practice College, and in 2012 he graduated from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyer’s College.
