Patricia Chen brings over 20 years of experience in Environmental Law and Land Use and has repeatedly been recognized in Chambers USA and Southern California Super Lawyers Rising Stars as an outstanding environmental practitioner in California among her peers at other prestigious law firms. Our strength is our ability to cost-effectively assess our clients’ issues and to develop practical solutions that are in most cases beneficial to all parties. Put simply, we bring significant large-firm experience and training to our boutique firm, without the layers of bureaucracy and large-firm rates.
The diversity of our practice is reflected in our clients.

Drawing upon our experience with such different perspectives on land use and environmental matters, we are able to advise our clients strategically as to the strengths and weaknesses of their respective positions. We are also able to broker and develop more creative deals and solutions.
