Maggie W. Stern
Interim Assistant City Attorney
Ms. Stern helps cities, counties, and special districts navigate the legal issues facing California public agencies. She streamlines routine legal matters and demystifies regulatory compliance, so her clients can spend less time on legal issues and more time on service delivery. Public agencies rely on Ms. Stern for advice on general governance matters, including Brown Act and Public Records Act compliance, conflicts-of-interest evaluation and guidance, constitutional law, procurement and public safety issues. She also represents and defends public agencies in civil actions involving contract disputes, cost recovery, tort defense, tax allocation disputes, land use, public works, and code enforcement.
