Barry & Barall, LLC are proud to announce that Partners Ryan P. Barry and Anthony J. Spinella have been named to the 2021 Connecticut Super Lawyers list. This is Attorney Barry’s second consecutive year being selected for inclusion for his work in personal injury law. This is Attorney Spinella’s first year being selected for his work in criminal defense.
What is Super Lawyers?
Super Lawyers is “a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.” Attorneys may be nominated by other attorneys who are licensed and practicing in the same state, or may be invited by Super Lawyers itself. Self-nominations are not allowed, and all nominations are confidential.
In order to be selected for inclusion, nominees must first undergo a rigorous selection process involving independent research into 12 different categories of achievement. Nominees are awarded points based on these categories, and those with the highest totals then undergo a thorough peer evaluation. Final selections are made after this stage, and those who have been selected are informed.
Up to 5% of all eligible attorneys in any given region and practice area will be selected for inclusion, and selection one year does not guarantee inclusion the next.
