Public Entity

The Public Entity Group of Low, Ball & Lynch represents municipalities, transportation districts, airports, school and recreation districts, hospitals, and water and sanitation districts throughout California in all aspects of litigation.

Low, Ball & Lynch handles all types of premises liability and personal injury cases, and specializes in defending wrongful termination and discrimination suits; federal civil rights claims, including those brought against police departments, and inverse condemnation claims. Our attorneys not only defend pending claims, they work with clients to prevent future claims by conducting risk management sessions and presenting seminars on various areas of government tort liability practice. Low, Ball & Lynch is a leader in public entity defense in California and stays on top of issues in this often changing and challenging area of law.

The firm is acutely aware of the needs of its government clients and consistently meets those needs.  We aggressively defend claims on a cost efficient basis, and prevent future claims through client education. Low, Ball & Lynch is committed to providing “full-service” representation of its clients in all aspects of public entity defense.
