Writs and Appeals

Goyette & Associates is one of the select labor and employment firms that also has extensive experience with writ petitions and appeals.

Whether the decision originates from a superior court, administrative agency, or a department of state government, Goyette & Associates has aggressively represented many clients in writs petitions (administrative and traditional mandate) and appeals to our state’s courts of appeal. Our appellate attorneys have argued before district courts of appeal throughout California as well as before the Ninth Circuit. We handle appeals from virtually any imaginable trial court decision as well as administrative appeals of every kind.

Goyette & Associates has extensive knowledge in administrative law and disciplinary hearings before city, county, and state administrative tribunals. As such, Goyette & Associates is a natural choice for those who have received unfair decisions from these entities and refuse to take “no” for an answer. Our clients include a wide array of licensed professionals of every conceivable type, including medical professionals, nurses, EMTs and paramedics. Because Goyette & Associates is the preeminent firm defending law enforcement personnel and firefighters statewide, we handle specialized appeals involving denials of concealed carry weapons (CCW) permits for honorably retired peace officers and appeals involving industrial disability retirement benefits.

Employee associations and unions already look to Goyette & Associates for our expertise in pursuing and obtaining writs of mandate and appellate victories. We are proud of our track record in our writs and appeals division and have achieved several notable victories and positive outcomes for our clients. Administrative mandamus or appellate work requires the expertise of an attorney who has represented clients in numerous administrative cases, regularly files appeals, and can spot reversible error in the record below. A writ petition or appeal is not a trial “do-over” but a careful review of the record to spot legal error that can justify overturning the outcome of the trial below. If you or someone you know is considering filing a petition for writ of mandate, appealing an adverse license decision, or appealing an adverse action from a state, county, or city agency, then please contact Goyette & Associates.
