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


Dedicated to making life easier for others, Barbara Butler is often described 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 to see family, and listening to live music. Choosing to begin law school after a successful career in local government, Barbara is an example of an individual who has set and achieved her goals, and in so doing, has found great success and satisfaction.
