These services include attending all Council and Planning Commission meetings, and such other meetings as are designated by City Council, providing comprehensive legal advisement to the City Council, City Manager and Department Heads, drafting and reviewing ordinances and resolutions, contracts, policies, memoranda of understanding and other legal documents.

We provide complete litigation services to our client cities, including oversight of outside counsel as may be necessary.

We work closely with each department or division within the City to ensure that code requirements are met for planning and permits, CEQA compliance, subdivision map act and financial documentation.

We also provide all required training for elected, appointed and designated officials of our city clients, including harassment prevention, ethics training, Brown Act and Public Records Act compliance, and labor compliance.
