A. Barry Cappello and Leila Noël, partners in the Santa Barbara law firm Cappello & Noël LLP, have been selected to the 2018 Southern California Super Lawyers list. No more than 5 percent of lawyers receive this honor.

Cappello has been named a "super lawyer" every year since 2007. He represents plaintiffs in lender liability matters, complex business litigation, class actions and catastrophic personal injury cases.

Cappello has obtained jury verdicts and negotiated settlements in excess of $1 billion on behalf of his clients, the firm reports.

This is the third year Noël has been named a "super lawyer." She has tried or co-tried most of the firm’s largest cases, and has obtained jury verdicts in excess of $125 million and negotiated more than $130 million in settlements and workouts, the firm said.
Super Lawyers, a Thomson Reuters business, rates lawyers who have attained a high degree of peer recognition and professional achievement.

The annual selections are made using a process that includes a survey of lawyers, an independent research evaluation of candidates, and peer reviews by practice area.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
