Who Are We?

Six attorneys, who had extensive experience in, and a passion for, representing public sector management in the areas of employment law and labor relations, got together and started our firm in 1980. 

Over the years we grew that practice to become California's preeminent public management employment law firm with over 80 attorneys in five offices.  Some years ago we added an education law specialty to our practice to meet the needs of our school and college clients. 

We invite you to explore our website, where you will learn more about who we are, what we do and how we do it.  We welcome your comments and suggestions and thank you for taking the time to get to know us a little better.
