Areas of Expertise
Criminal Defense
Civil Litigation
Appellate Representation

Warren & Burstein accepts a small number of civil cases in which our experience is especially beneficial.  Cases in which the government is a party are particularly well suited to our expertise.


We maintain close relationships with leading civil-litigation attorneys in San Diego and New York, providing our clients the bi-coastal reach often required in complex matters.  As with all of our work, we are committed to providing the best possible representation. 

At Warren & Burstein, appellate representation is a principal focus.  Successful appellate representation requires attention to detail and the ability to turn those details into compelling arguments.  These are the skills we bring to every case. 


We regularly appear before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on all manner of criminal cases and have amassed a lengthy record of victories (recent victories). 


We also have considerable expertise in state-court appeals, working with clients in both California and New York.  Our work extends to assisting clients and other attorneys with petitions for certiorari to the United States Supreme Court and with petitions for leave to appeal to the New York Court of Appeals.
