Praise for Ms. Lena Wade
I have the privilege to work with Ms. Wade in my capacity as the Executive Director of a multiple City radio system. Ms. Wade is our legal Counsel and does a fabulous job in meeting our needs and timeframes to include contracts, Brown Act advice and compliance, Request for Proposals (RFPs), agenda and staff report review. I enjoy working with Ms. Wade, she is professional, persuasive and delivers results. Her demeanor is reserved, however, confident with getting the job done. I highly recommend Ms. Wade and the Firm she works for your legal needs.
