RWG's lawyers have specialized in representing all types of public agencies since 1954.  During this time the laws governing public agencies and the case law bearing on the operations of public agencies have grown exponentially in volume and complexity.  RWG lawyers have been in the forefront of these legal challenges—defending public agencies, shaping the new course of public law, and assisting public agencies through these difficult legal challenges.  RWG lawyers continue this tradition representing our clients with exceptional creativity, tenacity, and determination.  We value the long-term relationships with our clients and know that our most important work is providing the guidance and wisdom to help our clients protect and enhance their communities.

RWG currently represents over 50 public agencies of all sizes and demographics throughout California. Our representation of public agencies includes airports, cities, towns, community services districts, counties, joint powers authorities, school districts, libraries and water districts.  Our litigators specialize in representing public entities.  Our lawyers represent public agencies in a wide array of litigation--whether it is a writ proceeding challenging the constitutionality of an ordinance, a personal injury claim involving dangerous conditions of public property, a criminal action for a code violation, or an inverse condemnation action involving a public work.  Regardless of the fact pattern or the area of law, if litigation involves a public agency, RWG can provide a litigator with extensive expertise to handle your case.

Our lawyers handle proceedings in trial courts, appellate courts, and before administrative bodies.  We pride ourselves on our expertise in knowing how to represent public agencies, and doing so in a cost-conscious manner.  We are problem solvers who seek to resolve cases quickly, but we are unafraid to take a case to trial when necessary.

As a result of our depth of attorneys and breadth of experience, RWG can serve virtually all of a public agency's needs for legal services.
