Public Entity Defense

Institutions that are owned and operated by governments are large targets. It is not uncommon for citizens to claim injury due to faulty sidewalks, crosswalks, roadways, facilities, and parks. Sometimes a fleet vehicle or bus is involved in an accident. Occasionally, police officers are accused of civil rights violations.

Over the past four decades, McDowall Cotter has represented the majority of The Peninsula’s cities against such claims, saving municipalities millions of taxpayer dollars in the process.

If you are in the San Francisco Peninsula, (San Mateo, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Foster City, Burlingame, Mountain View…), South Bay (San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara…), Alameda County (Oakland, Alameda, Berkeley, Pleasanton…), and San Francisco, and would require more information on public entity defense, our highly knowledgeable team of litigation lawyers at our San Mateo law firm have decades of experience and are here to help you and answer any questions with just the right mix of empathy and advocacy.
