About Mr. Burney



Blog: The Criminal Lawyer



Appeals require very different skills from trial-level lawyering.  A winning lawyer gives appellate judges legal insights and fresh perspectives, to help the judges rule the right way.  Good appellate lawyers know how to relate to the courts as a colleague, not as a combatant.

Nathaniel Burney is a trusted advocate.  He has built a reputation for professionalism and trustworthiness, and a thorough mastery of the law, so judges know they can rely on his arguments.

He learned from the best.  His first legal job was at the U.S. Supreme Court, as personal assistant to Chief Justice Warren Burger.  After that, he worked for the famed Carter Phillips on high-profile 8th Amendment and Capital Punishment cases before the Supreme Court.  As a young prosecutor, he crafted what became new law in a case of first impression on the expectation of privacy.  And he has since gone on to personally handle appeals in equally important cases involving novel Fourth Amendment issues, immigration, ineffective trial counsel, bail, and similar issues.

Whether your case is before the Supreme Court of the United States, a federal Court of Appeals, or a New York State appellate court, Nathaniel Burney has the experience and know-how you need to win.
