-- Santa Barbara, Calif.--A. Barry Cappello and Leila J. Noël, partners in the Santa Barbara law firm of Cappello & Noël LLP, have been named as two of the top attorneys in Southern California for 2013 by Super Lawyers Southern California
magazine. No more than 5 percent of lawyers in California receive this honor.
Each year, a research team at Super Lawyers undertakes an independent, statewide survey of lawyers, compiles peer reviews and makes good-standing and disciplinary checks of thousands of attorneys. Only attorneys receiving the highest marks qualify as a Super Lawyer. Super Lawyers recognized Cappello and Noël for their legal success in business litigation.
Cappello, who has been named a Super Lawyer since 2007, and Noël, a Super Lawyer for two years, represent plaintiffs in lender liability matters, complex business litigation, class actions and catastrophic personal injury cases. They often co-try the firm’s largest cases, and have obtained jury verdicts and negotiated settlements in excess of $1 billion on behalf of their clients.
In 2011, Noël was named one of the "Top 75 Women Litigators" in California by the Los Angeles
and San Francisco Daily Journals
. Since 2007, the National Trial Lawyers Association has listed Cappello as a "Top 100 Trial Attorney" in California and he has been named to the "Best Lawyers in America" since 1994.
