Appellate

Barker, Castro, Kuban & Steinback knows that the necessary preparation for an appeal begins before a court judgment or jury verdict. Our appellate lawyers work closely with the trial lawyers in the resolution of critical trial matters, such as evidentiary admissions, motions in limine, jury instructions and dispositive motions.  We recognize the clear distinction between trial strategy and appellate practice, as well as the need for exceptional research, writing and oral argument skills.  Barker and Castro’s appellate lawyers provide a fresh look at verdicts and rulings, and understand that an appeal should not simply reiterate arguments presented to the lower court.  Rather, we address every appeal as an opportunity to reassess and refine the issues, arguments, and direction of a case to best represent our clients.
