"Making sure you are understood and treated with respect."


Dedicated to making life easier for others, Barbara Butler describes herself as “the eye of the storm.” Her calm demeanor makes you feel at ease, and her confidence earns your respect.  
As a partner with Dufford Waldeck, Barbara spends most of her time with estate planning and probate matters. Her number one goal is to make sure the client’s wishes become reality. This is an important step in the continuum of a person’s legacy and Barbara is there to assist her clients and their families through these complicated and sometimes contentious processes.
When out of the office, Barbara enjoys spending time with her husband, traveling, and listening to live music.  Choosing to begin law school and starting over after a successful career in local government, Barbara is a perfect example of an individual who has gone after her dreams, and in so doing, has found great success.
