About us

At PC Law Group, we pride ourselves in the quality of our work and our responsiveness to client needs. We have extensive experience in complex environmental and land use issues in transactional and litigation matters and are currently handling and have successfully handled matters involving hazardous materials, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Clean Water Act and Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act, Clean Air Act, Proposition 65, and Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). Patricia Chen 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. We represent municipalities, regional governmental agencies, joint powers authorities, water districts, utilities, developers, family trusts, and publicly-traded and privately-held companies. 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.

We can and have expeditiously and efficiently assembled teams to handle larger litigation matters because we have a network of colleagues who have similar work ethic, work quality, and tailored experience to suit the specific subject matter.

We are proud to be a minority and woman-owned small business enterprise (MBE, WBE, and SBE).
