Barry Evenchick grew up in Millburn, New Jersey and attended college and law school at Rutgers University (Newark).  His legal career spans more than five decades.  Barry served as chief of the appellate section of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office and subsequently as administrative assistant to the president of the New Jersey Board of Public Utility Commissioners. He also served as Deputy Attorney General and the first chief of the appellate section of the New Jersey Division of Criminal Justice.  

Barry served for twelve years as the municipal attorney of the Township of Livingston and for six years as a commissioner of the New Jersey State Commission of Investigation. These experiences shaped his interest in litigation and his current practice areas, which include trial and appellate litigation, criminal law, business law, commercial law, employment law, administrative law, real estate, and zoning and planning.

Colleagues describe Barry as highly skilled and dedicated to bettering the practice of law. In addition to his work in private practice, he serves the public and the New Jersey legal community in a variety of capacities. As an adjunct faculty member at Rutgers Law School in Newark, he has taught a number of courses, including municipal law and appellate advocacy. He serves as vice-chair of the editorial board of the New Jersey Law Journal. In addition, he has served on a variety of state, local, and national advisory boards relating to law and criminal justice, and served in the New Jersey Army National Guard as an officer in the Judge Advocate General's Corps.  

When not working, Barry enjoys spending time writing, playing tennis and golf, and spending time with his two children, their spouses, and his four grandchildren.  He has resided in Livingston for the past 45 years and has been a lifelong resident of Essex County, New Jersey.  Barry is the author and editor of two publications celebrating his hometown of Livingston Township, including A Bicentennial Portrait of Livingston Township (Riverside Graphics, 2013).
