Coast Law Group attorneys are known for aggressively pursuing litigation in trial and appellate courts.

Environmental protection is the hallmark of Coast Law Group’s passion for community service. Coast Law Group provides private and non-profit entities with policy, permit processing and legislation services in environmental and land use matters before myriad local, state, and federal agencies. As well, Coast Law Group’s attorneys are known for aggressively pursuing litigation in trial and appellate courts at both the state and federal levels.

Our name rightly suggests expertise in coastal issues, yet our experience extends throughout the State. We enjoy successful representation before (and influence with) the California Coastal Commission, Regional Water Quality Control Board, State Water Resources Control Board, municipalities, counties, and the State legislature.

Clients of all sizes and representing a range of industries currently benefit from Coast Law Group’s extensive experience in publicly-visible, environmentally-sensitive matters. Coast Law Group is one of the few firms with the depth of knowledge to provide government agencies, responsible developers and die-hard environmentalists quality advice on environmental law.
