Monterey County Public Agency Lawyers

Highly Experienced in California Public Agency & Education Law

JRG Attorneys at Law is experienced on both sides of Public Agency and Education Law. With our offices in Salinas, Hollister, Monterey, King City, and Paso Robles, our clients are frequently private companies and individuals; however, we have developed an expertise in the public agency side of the law as well. Attorney E. Soren Diaz has several years of experience representing cities, school districts and offices, and boards of education in Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties.

Legal opinions may be requested when it becomes necessary to verify the legal status of any proposed or existing School District policy or procedure, or in the solution of other District problems. The complexity of school district operations often requires the attainment of professional legal services. Consequently, a school district may bring on board an attorney or law firm for purposes of systematically securing such services.

Because of JRG’s considerable experience as both general and special counsel for public agencies throughout the state of California, our Monterey County attorneys have earned significant expertise in a variety of legal fields. We have a solid understanding of the legal aspects of various areas of law that public agencies frequently deal with and the additional considerations that public agencies face that private clients do not.
