Westchester County Personal Injury Trial and Appeals Attorney
After graduating law school from the City University of New York at Queens College, Mr. Strutt was selected to serve in the prestigious position of federal law clerk to the Hon. Richard A. Enslen (now deceased) of the United States District Court for the Western District of Michigan, Southern Division. Mr. Strutt honed his litigation skills while serving as an appeals court attorney, selected as one of eight lawyers to represent indigent clients at the Office of the Appellate Defender.
Barry is admitted to practice in the state and federal courts of New York as well as in the United States Supreme Court.
Appeals courts frequently overturn plaintiff verdicts. Mr. Strutt, however, has not only successfully preserved the compensation awarded to victims of negligence in countless situations, his appellate victories have often expanded their rights to sue and ultimately recover.
An active trial attorney, Barry has served as a guest lecturer at the Trial Lawyers Committee of the Westchester Bar. He has also taught legal research at Westchester Community College, and has been an adjunct professor and mentor at Empire State College in the areas of civil rights and legal ethics. Barry has earned the highest national rating for lawyers awarded by Martindale-Hubbell and Avvo, and is listed among the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by The National Trial Lawyers.
Barry Strutt reflects his partners' zeal for service to our clients and the broader community in his past pro bono representation of September 11 victims and by serving as a past Board of Director Member for John Jay Legal Services at Pace Law School.
