My practice focuses on the representation of individuals seeking to vindicate their rights against large institutions in appellate courts. I have represented victims of discrimination, whistleblowers, consumers, political protestors and criminal defendants. I have litigated cases in both state and federal courts, including the Washington Supreme Court, the California Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
By the time they have reached an appellate court, my clients often fear, as novelist William Gaddis put it: Justice? -- You get justice in the next world, in this world, you have the law. I practice law to win justice for my clients in this world.
