The Law Offices of Quintanilla & Associates (“Q&A”) was founded by Steven B. Quintanilla, after nearly 20 years of representing cities, redevelopment agencies, special districts, joint powers agencies, community services districts and non-profit organizations.
Q&A specializes in all aspects of public agency law, which includes without limitation, ethics, contracts, land use planning, environmental, code enforcement, real estate, public works construction projects, personnel, labor relations, taxes, assessments and fees, municipal finance and litigation. In addition, the firm has particular expertise in the areas of regulating sexually oriented businesses, medical marijuana facilities and mobile home parks, and implementing and administering effective and cost efficient code enforcement programs.
Currently, Q&A is a small firm of just eight attorneys and two support staff members, all of whom are genuinely dedicated to a life of public and community service. Although small in number, we are big when it comes to enthusiasm, competence and work ethic. We have an excellent reputation for providing timely, sound and practicable legal advice. We also are fully appreciative of our limited role in the day-to-day public decision making process – we are not the policy makers. As such, we closely listen to each client to assess the client’s needs, objectives and goals and we limit our advice to legal advice regarding how the client can legally fulfill its needs, meet its objectives and obtain its goals, within the framework of the highest ethical standards applicable to the public decision making process.
