Richard Barry has built a career on the dogged pursuit of answers for his clients. He is dedicated to protecting and defending clients against complicated and highly technical claims of medical malpractice, vehicular liability, other personal injury, and insurance coverage.

He also handles state administrative actions involving professional licensure and discipline.

He manages automobile and other vehicular liability cases involving commercial conveyance and common carriers and also represents insurance companies in first- and third-party claims and coverage disputes. His natural curiosity and deep knowledge of both medical nomenclature and scientific subject matter allow him to provide nuanced and sophisticated counsel to clients operating in these specialized areas. He carefully evaluates each case with a focus on transparent client communications, moving toward positive outcomes, and containing the risk and cost involved in delicate professional negligence matters and protracted litigation.
