Government and Public Entity Law is one of the fastest growing practice areas at Burnham Brown. We are particularly skilled in the defense of actions seeking redress under federal and state civil rights laws.

We serve state agencies, city and county governments, law enforcement agencies, air and water quality districts, school districts, community colleges, public service districts, airport and transportation authorities, law enforcement officers, and public utilities.
