Municipal Law

ADCL is proud of its long history representing public entities for over 50 years. ADCL serves its public entity clients with expertise and pride.

ADCL’s attorneys currently represent:

The Town of:

  • Woodside


  • Central County Fire Department
  • Coastside Fire Protection District
  • FireNet Six
  • South Bayside Waste Management Authority
  • Copper Valley Community Services District

Each of the entities the firm represents brings its own set of unique issues and challenges which are addressed on a daily basis by ADCL’s attorneys. Accordingly, we stay abreast of the latest changes in public entity law. Because ADCL’s attorneys represent a number of municipal and public agencies, we are able to leverage the collective knowledge and experience we have attained to best represent each of our retained clients.

On a regular basis ADCL’s attorneys deal with issues related to open meeting law, conflict of interest, public contracting, California Environmental Quality Act, real estate acquisitions, election law, ordinance drafting, land use matters, special assessments, employment and labor issues, code violations, capital improvement projects, joint powers agreements, and city planning and zoning matters.

Because of our experience in municipal law, ADCL’s attorneys frequently serve as special counsel for other public entities when conflicts arise or when our specialized experience is desired by other communities. We have served as special counsel for the Cities of Atherton, Burlingame, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Mateo, Sunnyvale, Redwood City, the County of San Mateo, and Reno, Nevada.
