We Have Considerable Experience On Both Sides Of The Courtroom

Our team consists of experienced trial lawyers who have been in the trenches and the courtroom since 1979.

Early on in his career, Mr. McGarity represented and defended insurance companies such as Allstate Insurance Company, St. Paul Insurance Company, Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company, CNA Insurance Company and many others. During that time, he learned the strategies and tactics of large insurance companies and other powerful corporate defendants. Now, Mr. McGarity uses that knowledge in representing injured plaintiffs – he understands how insurance companies and their lawyers think and operate, which provides a tremendous advantage in a personal injury or medical malpractice case.

Mr. Barré is a trial lawyer who focuses on personal injury matters and has tried over 40 cases throughout his legal career. He places an emphasis on his client’s well-being and represents his clients in an ethical and zealous manner.

Our years of trial experience and reputation among jurists, trial lawyers and insurance companies give us the “gravitas” or formidable reputation that will ensure your case will be aggressively and properly handled by a skilled trial team at our firm.
