Barbara I. Michaelides

Of Counsel

A seasoned appellate practitioner on high-exposure cases, Barb has a keen sense of how cases are scrutinized at the appellate level.  Her appellate practice spans a broad range of commercial, first-party property liability insurance coverage and defense matters, bringing a record of successful briefing and oral arguments in actions spanning the country.

Beyond her appellate work, Barb serves as monitoring appellate counsel in complex, high-exposure actions, joining counsel in research and motion writing. Barb’s expert perspective ensures error is preserved for appeal and cases are postured for successful resolution. 

“As an appellate lawyer, I have a very different perspective from a trial lawyer on what a case is about and what the record shows.  I look at cases the way appeals courts look at cases.”
