California Public Entity Law

California Public Entity…

Liedle, Larson & Vail, LLP is committed to representing public entities and is keenly aware of the unique litigation challenges they encounter.  Often, public entities have more at risk in litigation than the elemental cost versus liability analysis.  When sued, a public entity faces potential policy and political concerns that must be considered in deciding a litigation approach.  LLV believes in working with our government clients to develop a strategy at the outset of litigation that provides the best possible outcome, whether that be through trial, motion practice or settlement.

Our representation and defense of public entities involves state, federal and appellate courts, ranging in matters from minor personal injury claims to wrongful death and real property claims.
