SLG is nationally recognized for providing superior knowledge, value, and personalized service to its clients.  In 2006, SLG was formed in order to focus on providing quality representation to clients with business interests in California.  SLG seeks to provide superior legal services in the most cost-effective manner possible.  SLG concentrates on avoiding expenditures of fees for litigation tasks which do not substantially increase the prospect of litigation victory.  Towards that end, SLG will often utilize flat fee billing arrangements in order to provide its clients with a specified range of services at a fair and predetermined price.  This allows for predictability in the pricing of some legal services and ensures that SLG works at maximum legal efficiency.

Since its formation in 2006, SLG has expanded its practice to include additional areas of real estate law, including mortgage fraud, landlord/tenant, and business litigation, by welcoming to its team additional associates and staff with extensive experience in these areas. In 2015, SLG also opened a Southern California office in Orange County, CA, while maintaining its same operation in Northern California.  This allows SLG to better meet the ever-changing needs of its clients and helps SLG to respond quickly and efficiently to its clients’ needs.
