Clients rely on us for a wide array of affordable housing, community economic development, public agency, and corporate and organizational needs. Very few law firms offer our bench strength, breadth of experience, and focused expertise. Because of our experience and services, we are able to support clients throughout a project’s lifecycle or to focus on specific aspects of their transaction.


Our practice includes all areas of legal expertise required by our clients related to the development of projects, as well as trial and appellate litigation. We also are involved with legislative and funding efforts to increase opportunities for people to become self-sufficient, have access to better services, and gain equity.


Commitment to Equity and Racial Justice
We are committed to continuing our work of supporting the communities and organizations that are dedicated to creating positive and impactful change in the lives of low income communities and communities of color across California through the construction of safe, quality housing and creation of economic opportunities. We share in the pain, grief, and anger felt by many facing inequities in access to quality housing, health care, education, and economic opportunity and echo the community’s call to condemn racism, police brutality, and discrimination of all kinds. We state this unequivocally: Black Lives Mater.
