B efore BarrSternberg became one of Southern Vermont’s largest firms, it was established when Neil Moss– then Vermont’s youngest State’s Attorney– brought together Pat Barr and Rolf Sternberg to build a small practice in Bennington. The three joined forces to take on the state’s most challenging cases, advocating for clients whose lives had been turned upside down by personal injury, wrongful death, divorce and parental rights disputes and estate planning. Three years later, the firm would bring on Peter Lawrence to extend their family law advocacy work and in 1992 David Silver would join, extending their criminal defense expertise and adding to firm’s aggressive personal injury work. In 2014, Michael Munson joined as partner to continue family law advocacy, personal injury, criminal defense work, and estate planning and adding bankruptcy expertise. To date BarrSternberg has helped more than 5,000 clients in all areas and of law.
