Denice Barrie

President & Founder

Denice Barrie is the founder of Waymark Law. Access to justice has been the focus of her practice throughout a career which has ranged from representing injured workers to Supreme Court family litigation.

Since 2007 Denice has assisted Self-Represented Litigants (SRLs) both in person and over the phone and has seen many of them achieve some remarkable results.

She brings to Waymark her extensive experience along with a confirmed belief that with some strategic professional assistance, SRLs can reach a better quality of justice.
