OVERVIEW

About Jonathan Sternberg
Jonathan Sternberg is an appellate lawyer in Kansas City, Missouri. He focuses his solo practice on civil and criminal appellate litigation at all points of a case, including briefing and arguing appeals, writs, post-judgment and post-conviction proceedings, and similar matters, as well as advising trial attorneys on procedure and strategy. Since opening his practice immediately after his admission to the bar in 2007, Jonathan has represented businesses and individuals in dozens of state and federal appeals throughout America in a wide array of subjects, successfully pursuing commercial, constitutional, criminal, estate, family, insurance, tax, and tort cases, among others. The total amount in controversy of all of his cases exceeds $260 million. His clients have included everything from Fortune 500® companies to indigent people. He has written more than 100 appellate briefs and presented over 45 appellate oral arguments, including nine before the Supreme Court of Missouri, an unusual achievement for a private lawyer of his age and time in practice. Jonathan is admitted to practice before Missouri and Kansas state courts, all federal district courts in Missouri and Kansas, every U.S. Court of Appeals circuit nationwide, and the U.S. Supreme Court. He often appears pro hac vice in other jurisdictions. Jonathan was the only solo practitioner who Missouri Lawyers Weekly selected as an "Up & Coming Lawyer" in 2009, was the youngest solo practitioner named to the Kansas City Business Journal's "Best of the Bar" list in 2013, and was named by The National Trial Lawyers to both its "Top 100" and "Top 40 Under 40" lists in 2013.
