The Barrows Firm Named as the Small Business of the Year in Southlake

At their recent annual awards banquet, the Southlake Chamber of Commerce named The Barrows Firm as the 2018 Small Business of the Year.

Held on June 21 at The Marq Southlake, the award program recognizes and celebrates the Southlake community. “The Southlake Chamber of Commerce is proud to be a part of this great city, where volunteerism and corporate citizenship are a way of life,” noted Chamber CEO Mark Guilbert.

In receiving their award, The Barrows Firm was recognized for their service and exemplifying excellence in their commitment to the City of Southlake and their involvement within the Southlake community.

Recently recognized in the Southlake Business Spotlight at the June 19 City Council meeting, Mayor Laura Hill praised the firm and Principal Attorney Leslie Barrows, “Leslie is a perfect example of somebody who not only has embraced the community but someone who the community has embraced. She is giving and also represents herself as a very ethical business in Southlake. Your reputation precedes you. We’re very proud of you and happy to have you in Southlake.”

Opening their doors in Southlake in 2006, the firm has established a  family law practice under the direction of Barrows.

“Living and working in Southlake, in this great community, we have so many great resources,” said Barrows. “I help people go through really challenging times in their lives that are really unexpected. We really focus on our families and making sure the family is represented and they can get through the process in as civil a way possible.”

Barrows currently serves on the Southlake Chamber board of director, is a graduate of the Leadership Southlake Class of 2017-18, member of the Chamber’s Women Empowered committee and has sponsored and volunteered at numerous community events.
