Richard M. Barnes Receives 2015's Leadership in Law Award from The Daily Record

September 2015

Richard M. Barnes of Goodell DeVries, one of our senior litigation partners has been selected as a winner of The Daily Record’s 2015 Leadership in Law Award.

The Daily Record's Leadership in Law award was established in 2001 to honor the many Maryland legal professionals, lawyers and judges, whose professional achievement, community service and mentoring deserve special recognition. Mr. Barnes has extensive experience in complex tort, commercial and product liability litigation. He is a founding member of the firm and has contributed greatly to the firm’s continued success. He has lead his clients to victories in multi-million dollar claims and tried cases in a variety of local, state and federal courts.

This year, The Daily Record received 70 nominations, which are solicited from its readers, bar associations, chambers of commerce and the legal community at large. Nominees were then asked to complete an application that explains their innovation and the impact it has made on Maryland. A distinguished panel of judges reviewed the applications and selected 27 winners for 2015, who will be honored on Nov. 19, 2015 at a reception and dinner at the BWI Hilton.
