Attorney/Commercial Escrow Officer
Barry has been practicing commercial real estate law since 1981 when he began his career with Locke, Purnell, Boren, Laney & Neely. He started out representing lenders making commercial loans for acquisition, development and construction. Later Barry represented developers of office buildings, shopping centers, apartments and condominiums. After working in-house for one of his clients, Barry established his own law practice to represent individuals and small businesses in real estate leasing and acquisitions. In 2016 Barry moved into the title insurance business in his hometown of Lubbock, but after a year he realized that he much preferred commercial sales, purchases and refinancing and returned to Dallas and Capital Title.
A true Texas native, Barry grew up in Lubbock, went to school in Austin, and has been in the Dallas area ever since. He received both his BBA degree (with highest honors) and his Doctor of Jurisprudence (with honors) from the University of Texas in Austin. He has been a member of the State Bar of Texas since 1981.
Barry is known for being responsive and persistent, as well as for his ability to analyze and cut through real estate legal issues to find solutions for his clients.
What Barry likes most about being an escrow officer is the cooperative effort that is required of all parties involved to get a transaction closed. He feels that his career in real estate law has given him the opportunity, “to meet a bunch of smart, nice people.”
When not working, Barry and his wife enjoy traveling to new places, especially historic sites, and music. Barry’s father had a chain of records stores in the 60s through the 80s and Barry worked there while he was in high school and college. He also enjoys playing golf.
