Redding, CA January 16, 2012— Local attorney Dugan Barr has been named by The National Trial Lawyers to the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in California. The National Trial Lawyers is a professional organization of America’s top trial lawyers. Selection of honorees is based on an analysis of their qualifications, ability, and trial results.
The NTL noted that evaluation of Mr. Barr’s qualifications demonstrated “performance as an exceptional trial lawyer in California.”
With this development, the firm of Barr and Mudford has become the only law firm in Northern California to have each of its principals so honored. Doug Mudford was also recently chosen by the National Trial Lawyers as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in California.
Both men are natives of Northern California. Mr. Barr was born and raised in Yreka and Mr. Mudford’s family moved to Arcata when he was very young and he grew up there.
Although many cases settle short of trial, that cannot be counted on in any given case. A trial lawyer must have the ability to do a first-rate job representing the client in court, in trial, in those cases that do not settle. That skill can only be judged from actual trial results in the courtroom, something that is recognized by this honor.
“My partner Doug Mudford and I are grateful for being honored by highly respected people in the legal community nationally,” said Mr. Barr.
Dugan Barr is also distinguished as a Diplomate, American Board of Trial Advocates, a Fellow, International Academy of Trial Lawyers and a Fellow, American College of Trial Lawyers. He was recognized as Northern California Trial Lawyer of the Year in 2005. He has been practicing law in Redding since 1967 after attending Reed College in Portland and the University of Chicago School of Law.
