About Our Appellate Practice

 
Concentration

Jonathan Sternberg focuses his practice strictly on appellate litigation. This includes at every point in a case, not only briefing and arguing appeals and related actions, but also advising trial counsel on procedure and strategy at all stages. He brings a breadth of knowledge to difficult problems in virtually any subject area.

Jonathan is admitted to practice before all state and federal courts in Missouri, Kansas, and Illinois, every U.S. Court of Appeals circuit nationwide, and the U.S. Supreme Court. He often appears “pro hac vice” in other jurisdictions.

Besides actual appeals, Jonathan also regularly pursues other, similar matters, such as:

 

  • Assisting trial counsel with motion practice, general research and writing, and error preservation
     

  • Seeking extraordinary writs to bring unappealable issues before higher courts
     

  • Habeas corpus and other post-conviction relief from criminal convictions and sentences
     

  • Post-judgment proceedings in civil cases
     

  • Declaratory actions and other procedures seeking to enforce or challenge a law
     

  • Defending lawyers and judges in disciplinary matters
     

  • Serving as an expert witness on appellate-related issues

Jonathan has written more than 275 appellate briefs and presented more than 125 appellate oral arguments, including 13 before the Supreme Court of Missouri.
