Sykes, Bourdon has established an excellent reputation in the community by providing outstanding trial representation to our clients in civil, criminal and traffic court litigation.

Our extensive experience practicing before federal, state and appellate courts allows the firm to handle almost any type of claim, from a traffic ticket to a personal injury or medical malpractice claim.

Sykes, Bourdon appears in Federal Bankruptcy Courts across the state representing creditors seeking to protect their claims, whether secured or unsecured. In addition, we represent debtors (individual and corporate) seeking the law, whether the client seeks to liquidate or reorganize assets.

Frequent appearances before Planning Commissions, City Councils, Boards of Zoning Appeals and Wetlands Boards have earned us a representation as leaders in land use and environmental law. Our land use and related litigation experience includes representation of landowners in state and federal courts involving “impact fees”, toxic waste, property condemnation and zoning disputes.

One notable example of our successful representation was a major property a ”downzoning” case in Virginia Beach where our restoration of our clients’ development rights was achieved.
