At The Law Office of Barry R. Fertel, clients and their needs are put first. Attorney Barry Fertel has practiced in New York for over 40 years as a client-oriented lawyer ardently devoted to safeguarding his clients' legal rights and promoting their interests.

The firm practices in education law and has helped many families and special needs children find education that suits the child's best interests.

Dedication to New York In and Out of Law

In his extensive service to law and to the community, Barry has held a number of positions that have successively contributed to his knowledge and legal experience. He was a member of the New Rochelle City Council from 2006 to 2019, having won the election with over 80% of the vote. He began his legal career as an assistant attorney general with the New York Attorney General's Office. Throughout the over 40 years of his legal practice, he has assumed many meaningful positions, tried dozens of cases, served as a court examiner in Westchester County, and worked with a number of successful New York law firms.

As an attorney, Barry has singularly served Westchester County through his 14-year tenure on the New Rochelle Board of Education. During this time, he served as president and vice president of what is one of the largest New York school districts. This experience qualifies Barry in a significant way as an education law lawyer. He has a broad and unmatched perspective on education law issues, student issues, and employment issues. He fully grasps both sides of education law: the position of the school board and that of parents who are communicating with the school board to ensure that their children get the education they need.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
