About Barry Gilbert

Barry Gilbert concentrates his practice in the area of family law, including divorce, high-conflict child custody, paternity, child support, military custody and pension cases, and guardianships. Barry has focused intensively in domestic litigation for over fifteen years and brings to every case his broad experience from nearly three decades of representing private and public entities in a range of civil matters. Barry believes that success, whether through trial or settlement, begins with thorough preparation and the experience to aggressively represent his clients in the courtroom. 

Barry earned his bachelor of arts in biology and then his juris doctorate, from the University of Missouri, in Columbia, before being admitted to the Missouri Bar in 1991. Barry is a member of the Boone County Bar Association, a past president of the Johnson County Bar Association, and a past board member of the national climbing advocacy organization, The Access Fund. Barry lives in Columbia with his wife, Kelly, and enjoys rock climbing with his daughter, Abbie, when she visits from her studies at the University of Washington.
