Where Results Matter

Barker & Castro is a litigation firm with experienced trial attorneys. At Barker & Castro we recognize that the law is a service profession, and our attorneys are dedicated to providing the highest quality of service. We strive to fit each client's needs.

Pat Barker and Chad Castro bring a combined 45 years of dedication and trial experience to the firm coupled with their partners, Anne Scrivner Kuban, Steve Steinback, Scott Irvin, Krista Frick, Matt Hurd, Elizabeth Jaci and Jennifer Suttle.  Pat and Chad began their medical negligence defense careers at Lord, Bissell & Brook, one of Chicago's largest firms. Pat and Chad have represented many of the major medical centers, hospitals and physician groups in the City of Chicago and its surrounding areas. Anne Scrivner Kuban began her career at the Cook County State's Attorney's office where she prosecuted in excess of 35 felony jury trials, and hundreds of bench trials ranging from financial crimes to murder cases. Steve Steinback began his legal career as a clerk to an Illinois Appellate Court justice. Upon completion of his clerkship, Steve began his career specializing in health care defense. He has since represented physicians, nurses, and hospitals in malpractice suits both in the trial court and appellate court. Steve and Chad also represent physicians and health care professionals before the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Scott Irvin also brings over 10 years of experience in general, commercial and medical negligence litigation. Krista Frick began her legal career with a focus on health care defense and soon after focused her practice on substantive writing, insurance coverage, post trial, and appellate advocacy. Krista brings with her over 14 years of litigation and appellate experience.  Matt has tried a wide range of cases in Federal and State courts in various locations in the United States.  Specializing in municipality defense, civil rights and police misconduct, Matt also has vast experience in medical malpractice cases, commercial litigation and premises cases.

At Barker & Castro, we understand clients have choices and therefore "good" results are not acceptable. Instead, we have established a reputation where only exceptional results count. We pride ourselves in providing our clients with a comprehensive assessment of each case from the outset. We then work with our client to create a defense strategy that will provide the best, most cost-efficient outcome. Only with an early, aggressive investigation of the facts and witnesses can a full comprehensive analysis of exposure be provided to our clients. At Barker & Castro you will not see or hear "it's too early to tell" in our evaluation a year into the case. At Barker & Castro we believe "satisfaction of the client is not only our top, but our only priority."

Barker & Castro has experienced trial lawyers who have successfully tried hundreds of cases in one of the highest profile counties in the country, Cook County, Illinois as well as the collar counties. Our attorneys' experience is vast, ranging from complicated malpractice cases to premises liability to police misconduct.
