RPLG Partner Linda Ross earned recognition as a Top 100 Women Lawyer on the Daily Journal’s 2021 list, which honors leaders in the legal profession throughout California. Linda first made the list in 2019 along with Founding Partner Louise Renne.
The Daily Journal noted Linda’s influential position at the forefront of pension reform litigation, particularly her roles in two recent high-profile cases before the California Supreme Court: writing an amicus brief submitted by the League of California Cities in a case addressing vested pension rights and representing the Central Contra Costa Sanitary District in a successful petition to uphold a provision mitigating pension spiking. The profile also highlighted Linda’s current flagship cases and recent wins in the labor law field.
“My practice at RPLG exposes me to politically significant, intellectually challenging issues that demand an innovative approach and a steadfast commitment to the public interest,” said Linda. “This honor from the Daily Journal is a reflection of the continued opportunities for me and the firm to champion public law leadership.”
“One of the really unique aspects of Renne Public Law Group is the number of senior lawyers on our bench, lawyers who have practiced for decades in the public sector,” said RPLG Founding Partner Jon Holtzman. “Linda embodies our firm’s devotion to public interest law and the depth of experience of our lawyers.”
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.
