Legal Services Tabulation - 2017-18.pdf
 
Summary:
For several years, the district has used the law firms of Brackett and Ellis and Walsh Gallegos for all of our legal service needs. Both firms have served the district well and we hope to continue our relationship with them for many years to come.
With that said, there may be instances where we feel a different firm may be more suitable in that particular case. For that reason, we performed an RFQ for legal services and asked firms to respond with their areas of specialty.
Attached for your review is a tabulation of 15 firms detailing each firm’s areas of service and their basic fee schedule.
We are asking to approve the entire tabulation so that all 15 firms are available for use should the need arise.
 
Budgetary Impact:
Please review the fee schedule section of the attached tabulation.
