About Barry

Learn Barry’s areas of practice.

Barry was selected to serve in the prestigious position of federal law clerk to the late Hon. Richard A. Enslen, formerly 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.

Car Accident caused a Permanent Disability
Barry Strutt was an excellent Attorney and I highly recommend him. My case was complicated because I was left with a permanent disability that was caused by a car accident. Barry fought for my rights and he won my case.

Barry's help
Barry has given the utmost attention and passion to my project/requests. I am in his debt for the work he has done for me and our organization. His help, his compassion and positive attitude have served to lift us in helping others. His service to the underserved/special needs community makes Barry stand alone amoung fields of attorneys that have no time or interest in helping their fellow man.

Excellent Attorney
my name is Clyde Bullard, I hired Barry Strutt a senior partner with the firm "Keegan,Keegan & Strutt" to represent my mother in a malpractice suit. I was very impressed with the attention that Mr. Strutt gave to all the little nuisances and his seeming total immersion into the history of the case. He was confident and professional of his ability to formulate a strong case, needless to say due to his research and vigilance the case was won. My family thanked "Keegan,Keegan & Strutt" and Mr. Barry Strutt for their success in winning the case for us! Clyde
