The largest law firm in Southern Vermont just got bigger. Barr, Sternberg, Moss, Lawrence & Silver PC has expanded its reach with the addition of a new partner, Michael S. Munson, ESQ.
Named by National Trial Lawyers as one of the Top 40 Under 40 Vermont lawyers, Munson comes to the firm with considerable diversity and trial law experience. He has argued before the Supreme Court and has tried dozens of cases, including more than 20 felony and misdemeanor criminal jury trials, and adds to the firm’s extensive personal injury, family law, real estate, civil litigation, estate planning, and landlord/tenant litigation experience.
“As an invested community member in Southern Vermont, I am eager to practice law with one of Vermont’s finest legal teams,” Munson said. “Partnering with a firm that has advanced law history and has a proven track record of aggressive client advocacy and success is compelling on many levels, not least of which is what it will mean for our clients,” Munson said.
The law firm—which has practiced for more than three decades in Bennington, Vermont—enjoys a distinguished reputation not only among personal injury, criminal, estate, family and corporate clients, but also among Vermont’s most successful lawyers. Known as an aggressive, knowledgeable, and experienced legal group, Barr, Sternberg, Moss & Partners continues to be a magnet for top legal talent.
“We are thrilled to add Mike Munson to our firm’s team,” Neil Moss, senior managing partner said. “The foundation of our firm’s success is built on our team approach. Mike’s impressive experience, expertise, personal conviction and litigation passion was an obvious professional match that only deepens our legal bench. This partnership will also allow us to take on additional clients and cases without compromising on the legal representation our oldest and most established clients expect.”
Munson comes to Barr, Sternberg, Moss, Lawrence, Silver & Partners from Cormier, Cormier & Munson, PC, where he practiced law for the last seven years. Prior to entering Vermont private law he was the Deputy State’s Attorney in Bennington from 2007 to 2010. Working with Venable LLP in Washington, D.C., Munson was a white-collar criminal defense attorney, as well an environmental lawyer from 2004 to 2007. Munson earned his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law in Austin, TX and his BA in Government from the University of Virginia. He has also studied EU law at University College London. Munson is licensed to practice law in Vermont and Virginia.
