FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 2, 2009
Barna Guzy & Steffen announces Personal Injury/Criminal Attorney Adriel Villarreal was named a 2010 “Minnesota Rising Star” by Minnesota Law and Politics magazine. In 1998, the publishers of Law & Politics and Super Lawyers launched Rising Stars in Minnesota to recognize the top up-and-coming attorneys in the state — those who are 40 years old or younger, or who have been practicing for 10 years or less.
Adriel joined Barna, Guzy & Steffen in 2004 as a Law Clerk. He became an attorney with the firm following his graduation from University of St. Thomas School of Law and admission to the bar in 2006. His practice now includes Personal Injury and Criminal Law.
He is bilingual and able to assist both English and Spanish speaking clients. This enables him to offer assistance to the growing Hispanic population in the north metro suburbs of Minneapolis where BGS is located. Adriel has been an integral part of BGS’ expansion to serve our growing and changing community. BGS has been dedicated to serving the community for more than 70 years and the community is growing and changing in population.
Due in equal parts to this philosophy and to the hard work of attorney Adriel B. Villarreal, our local community has responded positively to our efforts. In order to better serve those in need, we have hired a bilingual paralegal, Eny Maldonado-Johnson to assist him.
Established in 1938, Barna, Guzy & Steffen provides a variety of legal services for individuals, companies and governmental agencies and has worked with thousands of clients in the metro area. For more information about the firm, visit www.bgs.com.
