About Me

Barry was selected to serve in the prestigious position of federal law clerk to the Hon. Richard A. Enslen, currently Chief Judge for the Western District of Michigan, Southern division. Mr. Strutt honed his skills as an appeals court litigator by being selected as one of eight attorneys 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 and Michigan 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.

Barry is also an active trial attorney and has been selected to participate as a guest lecturer at the Trial Lawyers Committee of the Westchester Bar and has taught legal research at Westchester Community College. Barry has also been an adjunct professor and mentor at Empire State College in the areas of civil rights and legal ethics. Barry too has earned the highest national rating for lawyers awarded by Martindale-Hubbell.


In the community, Barry serves as a member of the Board of Directors of The Josephine Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organizaiton whose mission is to assist individuals and programs in achieving their life goals through their participation in the arts and sports.  Barry also serves on the Board of Directors of Lifeline Theater Inc., another non-profit 501(c)(3) charitable organizaiton which was created to provide an outlet for unlocking the potential of children and adults with special needs through integrated arts and life skills programs. This special program uses singing, dancing,play creation, artwork and gardening to help participants identify their own strengths and potential contributions to their communities.

    I endorse this lawyer, whom I've known and admired for 30 years. Barry genuinely cares deeply about his clients and will do everything that can be done to protect them and obtain the best possible result. He has a brilliant intellect and loves to play in the murky depths of the law like a dolphin, but he is also wily and street smart and when necessary becomes the proverbial shark. Anyone who has been injured by another could not possibly do better than have Barry as your lawyer.
