Writs and Appeals

Burke, Williams & Sorensen’s litigation attorneys regularly handle appeals and writ petitions to the California Court of Appeal in appellate districts throughout the state, and to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Due to our public and environmental law groups, we also have extensive experience in trial court writs. Many of the appeals have resulted in published decisions. At last count, seven of Burke’s litigators have briefed or argued cases in front of the California Supreme Court. Our public and private clients frequently ask us to prepare and submit amicus briefs on their behalf, usually on cutting-edge legal issues.
