Immediately upon receiving his law degree, Barrick joined the San Francisco-based private practice law firm of Jackson & Wallace serving as an associate in the Asbestos and Construction Defect section for a little over four and a half years. He then worked for Guenther & Castronova LLP as an associate in the Construction Defect section representing developers before being hired to enact primarily mechanics lien actions on behalf of subcontractors with the private law practice of Peel Brimley LLP.
The re-election campaign of Nevada Attorney General Catherine Cortez Masto began running a television advertisement on Thursday, October 14th, pointing "out her Republican opponent spent 45 days in jail for misdemeanor trespassing and resisting arrest at an abortion clinic." A discrepancy in the commercial, however, is that it simply contends that Barrick served time for "harassing women" with no mention of the circumstances surrounding his arrest. Regardless, the Republican nominee for state attorney general argues that he does not regret the fact that he and six other "anti-abortion protesters [were] arrested in July 1989 for blockading the clinic in La Mesa, California."
