Our philosophy is to provide a high level of service in an efficient and result oriented manner. Burnham Brown, a well-known Northern California law firm, is more rooted in Oakland’s civic and architectural history than any other firm, and can trace its practice back to the year 1899.
It began in a stately Victorian home on 871 Center Street near Seventh in then-bustling West Oakland, where for a time next door, citizens could purchase bicycles or have their guns repaired — or seek legal advice. Christian G. Rode sold and serviced the merchandise; his son, Walter, who assisted in the shop, also listed himself as an attorney in the 1898 city directory, passed the State Bar in 1899 at the age of 22, and began practicing law under the same roof – starting a legacy which would span three centuries. Within a few years’ time, young Walter had moved his offices to 1004 Broadway, now the site of the Trans-Pacific Centre.
