Barry Hines began to practice law in 1972 with the firm of Barber & Barber in Springfield, Illinois.  The firm later became Barber, Segatto, Hoffee & Hines.  He established his sole practice in 2008.  He attended law school at the University of Illinois College of Law, where he was awarded a Juris Doctorate.  His undergraduate education was also at the University of Illinois, where he earned a B.S. in Accountancy. Mr. Hines today concentrates his practice in the areas of wills, trusts, estate planning and administration, as well as agricultural law and commercial real estate. 

Mr. Hines has authored legal publications including Sales, Exchanges, Auctions of Farm Real Estate (1983), Overview of Probate (1984), Understanding and Planning for IRC 2057:  It's Not Just for Farms (2001), and Election Law:  Media and Broadcasting (2002), all for the Illinois Institute for Continuing Legal Education; Section 1031 Real Estate Exchanges (2005) for Lorman Education Services; and, Hot Topics in Agricultural Law  (2008):  Cash, Variable Cash, Production & Share Leases:  Issues & Forms, Donald L. Uchtmann & Barry O. Hines, for the Illinois State Bar Association LawEd series.
