Whether it is an administrative proceeding, bench trial, jury trial, or alternative dispute resolution, Somach Simmons & Dunn litigators have reached favorable results for many clients in practice areas that run the gamut from environmental, water rights, water quality, air quality, and areas such as CEQA/NEPA and citizen suit defense.
The firm’s lawyers have appeared before the U.S. and California Supreme Courts, many federal and state appellate courts, trial courts, and nearly every environmental administrative agency in the state. The firm is currently representing clients in two separate original jurisdiction interstate water disputes before the U.S. Supreme Court.
A quality that sets our lawyers apart from many others is the commitment to examine litigation at every stage and make strategic business recommendations about strategies, as well as the merits of pursuing litigation. We maintain a keen understanding of the business and personal toll that litigation takes, and while our firm’s litigators are exceptionally skilled at aggressively taking tough cases to trial, the firm also aggressively seeks solutions that avoid litigation when client interests can still be served.
