For almost 30 years “The Best Lawyers in America” has been one of the most respected guides for finding and selecting a top-notch lawyer in the full spectrum of legal specialties. The 2013 edition of the directory has been released and, for the 5th consecutive year, Dugan Barr of Barr and Mudford in Redding has been named one of The Best Lawyers in America.
Lawyers are chosen based solely on the vote of their peers, listings cannot be bought. That’s why this prestigious directory is the “gold standard” for choosing a lawyer who represents the highest standards of skill, reliability and integrity.
Barr and Mudford works in the area of personal injury and has handled cases ranging from victims of unnecessary heart surgery as documented in the national best-selling book “Coronary,” to victims of negligence on the part of corporations, individuals and governmental agencies, as well as victims of design defects in automobiles, boats and highways.
In the latter category, a jury in Sacramento earlier this year awarded one of the largest judgments of its kind in California—over $17 million—in the case of Liu vs. City of Sacramento. Horrific injuries were caused as the result of negligence in the design of a crosswalk. This case was handled by Mr. Barr, representing a medical student at UC Davis who was out for her morning run.
“This kind of case sends a powerful message to both governmental agencies and private industry that negligence will not be tolerated, that we all have a responsibility to ensure a safe living and working environment,” said Mr. Barr.
Just last week another honor was bestowed on the Barr and Mudford firm. They were voted “Best Attorney in the Northstate” in the annual poll conducted by the Record Searchlight newspaper. “Dugan and I, along with the entire Barr and Mudford team are truly appreciative of the confidence placed in our firm,” said partner Doug Mudford.
Barr and Mudford has been representing victims of serious injury since 1967.
