No Recovery, You Owe Us Nothing
The Cornell Law Forum featured SDSBS attorney and Cornell alumnus (1976) Greg Barnhart in its “Profiles” published in the spring of 2014. The subject of the profile was “Taking on Corporate Defendants in the Ultimate Game.” Mr. Barnhart joined SDSBS in 1978, shortly after graduation from Cornell Law School. In over 36 years, Mr. Barnhart has won 77 verdicts worth over $1 million each. Aside from his work at SDSBS, Mr. Barnhart, an active outdoorsman, goes to court pro-bono for “1000 Friends of Florida,” a nonpartisan group promoting environmentally responsible growth. “Compared to other law schools,” said Mr. Barnhart, “the ability to delve into the theory and the fabric of the law is explored more deeply at schools like Cornell.” He advised aspiring trial lawyers to rack up as much time in court as possible.
