"I knew I wanted to become a plaintiff's lawyer from the time
I was a child and my father, a postal employee, was injured in a traffic
accident while on the job. His resulting injuries left him dependent on
federal workers compensation for the rest of his life. I did not think
justice was provided to him and I did not want that to happen to others"
"The most fulfilling aspect of my life is working on behalf of injured
clients and helping them obtain the justice they deserve. It is a great
honor to not only be named a 2014 Michigan Super Lawyer, but also be be
recognized with this honor for eight consecutive years."
In addition to being named a Michigan Super Lawyer, Barry has also been
honored with the Champion of Justice Award from the Michigan Association
for Justice (MAJ), as well as the Wings of Justice Award by the Oakland
County Democratic Party. He has also served as the Former President of
