Barry Chenman does not stop until he reaches his goals. Persistence is a key trait he has used to help him get to where he is today and it’s the same characteristic that he uses to ensure he wins cases for his clients. Barry is persistent. Plain and simple.
As a child, Barry was a ball of energy, bringing vitality and passion everywhere he went. His parents would describe him as energetic because he could never sit still for very long. After he finished one project, he would be on to the next.
That energy and passion, combined with his persistence makes Barry Chenman a formidable force in the courtroom. Barry is the kind of personal injury attorney that takes things personally. He will do anything he can to reach his goal.
When he is in court, he runs the room. He has power in the way he speaks out for his clients and gets them the justice they deserve. If he wasn’t an attorney, he would be a late-night talk show host.
Barry moved from South Jersey to South Florida when he was a young man, and he still considers it one of the best decisions he ever made. He has never looked back. The sunshine matches his bright personality.
Barry thrived at the University of Miami, where he realized that his passionate personality and persistence would be a great fit for a career as a lawyer. Barry attended law school at Nova Southeastern – Shepard Broad Law Center. He took to it like a duck to water.
He was an active member of the Moot Court Honor Society and a part of the Nova Trial Association, scoring major victories in competitions for both groups. One of his favorite moments during law school was when he became the first NSU student to win the American Bar Association National Moot Court competition. He would eventually win the “Order of the Barristers Award” upon Graduation from Nova, a highly regarded and exclusive award that recognizes excellence and leadership as an advocate.
Something Barry would love all new clients to know is that the details in the medical records are everything! He says, “tell the doctor details so it is properly explained in the report. That way nothing is left unsaid, and it is all documented correctly.”
Preparation and evidence are key when it comes to reaching settlements in cases. Closing cases is something Barry looks forward to. He knows that his clients are just looking for compensation to help them get better and get their life back to normal quickly. That’s why he is constantly working on his clients’ cases day and night because the grind doesn’t stop.
When Barry isn’t fighting for his clients and settling their cases, he enjoys the nightlife in the Miami and Fort Lauderdale areas. However, during the pandemic, he explored the world of Netflix and found himself binging some awesome shows.
