Partner Ren Nosky has over 30 years of experience representing cities, water districts, school districts, and boards of education in Monterey, San Benito, Santa Clara and Santa Cruz Counties.

Because of JRG’s considerable experience as both general and special counsel for public agencies throughout the state of California, our Central Coast 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.
