Paul Brisso has been Council for the Humboldt Bay Harbor, Recreation and Conservation Distict (District) for over six years. Over that time, I have interacted with Paul 2-3 times per week on all facets of local government law covering personnel, property, liens, leases, agreements, contracts and insurance issues. In all of these interactions, I have found Paul to be very professional, knowledgable, and go the extra mile to help solve the sometimes complex legal issues that face a special district. Paul also teaches local government compliance classes. I have taken his class on California's Brown Act open meeting law and found Paul to be very good at presenting complex legal information in a very understandable and useful way to a non-legal audience. In my opinion, Paul has done an outstatanding job of representing the District and I would not hesitate to recommend him for any legal activity for which he feels qualified.
