Barry Kantrowitz is a member of the New York State and New Jersey State Trial Lawyers Associations, and the State Bar Associations of New York, New Jersey and Florida. He has lectured to college students at Brandeis and Boston Universities and has taught classes to train future lawyers.

This second generation Kantrowitz, who first worked for Kantrowitz & Goldhamer while in high school, handles the day to day operations of the firm's non-matrimonial litigation department, trying civil, negligence, criminal and corporate cases. Most of his time is dedicated to preparing and trying cases relating to personal injury, professional malpractice, corporate and complex commercial disputes. In 1988, Barry obtained a $9,200,000 jury verdict in connection with the death of two teenagers at a construction site. At the time, it was the largest verdict of its kind in Rockland County.

In addition to representing individual claimants Barry has represented numerous large corporate clients in complex litigation. Recently, Barry successfully defended Tyco International in a $40,000,000 claim against a fire suppression subsidiary.

Both large and small companies have looked to Barry for representation in complex matters. Two of Barry's reported trials resulted in favorable verdicts for individual clients who took on formidable corporate defendants. In Vesco vs. North Star Steel, Barry obtained a Federal judgment in excess of $1,500,000 against a subsidiary of Cargill Incorporated, one of the largest privately held companies in the world. In Boyajian vs. C&R Realty, Barry represented a minority shareholder who was awarded in excess of $600,000.00 based on oppressive conduct by the majority. In 2008, Barry obtained a jury verdict in excess of $1,000,000 for a client injured in a fall down case. Some of Barry's notable personal injury recoveries are listed in the "Personal Injury Recoveries" section of this site.
