About RPLG

Founded by partners Louise Renne, Jon Holtzman, Art Hartinger, and Teresa Stricker

RPLG practices throughout California, advising and advocating for public agencies, nonprofit entities, individuals and private entities in need of effective, responsive and creative legal solutions.

We are proud to have former San Francisco City Attorney Louise Renne lead us forward as Chairperson.

RPLG is devoted to the principle that representing government is in the public interest.

a collaborative team with in-house staff to identify workable solutions to complex problems, develop strategy and implement solutions, whether the path is at the bargaining table, city council chambers, the courtroom, or the ballot box.
