About me

Partners Leonard C. Herr, Kris B. Pedersen, and Rachele Berglund collectively have more than 50 years of legal and administrative experience. They have served public agencies of all sizes, national corporations, local businesses and individuals, and non-profit organizations. Their combined administrative and litigation experience makes them uniquely suited to providing clients with legal and practical advice. Their approach is to focus on creatively resolving issues before those problems result in litigation. Their firm has a proven record of litigation avoidance and, when necessary, success in the court room. When required, they have the experience and talented personnel to effectively defend or prosecute most claims, almost anywhere in the country. Together, they have conducted more than 100 trials, and have briefed and argued more than 20 cases before various appellate courts. With their staff of seven attorneys and paralegals, their firm is one of the largest law firms in Tulare County. Their offices in downtown Visalia house state-of-the-art conference, library and technological resources. Their clients enjoy a track record of success - a reflection of their emphasis on quality advice combined with our litigation experience, and a dedication to hiring the finest attorneys and support staff.
