California Newspaper of General Circulation Attorney
California Legal Advertising Adjudication Lawyer Representing Newspaper of Record Petitioners and Contestants in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego and Ventura Counties
In California, newspapers of general circulation are the only publications in California that can publish “legal notices” – those official advertisements, such as foreclosure notices and fictitious business name statements, which by law must be published in a “newspaper of general circulation” to be valid and effective. Whether a publication chooses to seek adjudication as a newspaper under the traditional criteria of Government Code Section 6000 or the alternative criteria of Government Code Section 6008, the publisher is advised to consult with an attorney skilled in this niche area of law. Keep in mind that many attorneys have no experience in this specialized area of law.
This area of law is so uncommon that most judges who rule on these petitions have never addressed this area of law during decades practicing law. In turn, the courts are likely to trust the reasonable statutory interpretations set forth by a counselor with experience in newspaper of general circulation litigation.
This is where Talkov Law will make the difference. We have successfully handled dozens of newspaper of general circulation petitions on behalf of petitioners and newspaper of general circulation contestants alike. Often times, we have petitions pending in multiple courts throughout Southern California at any given time. The efficiency and knowledge we provide is to the benefit of our clients, and to the detriment of any competing newspaper that may seek to contest a newspaper of general circulation petition.
Experience will make the difference in this area of law, which has generated only about 100 published cases in the 100-plus-year history of this area of law. Hiring an attorney who understands the nuances of each of these 100 cases and the application of those cases where the facts may present a unique challenge will mean that your position is clearly understood by the court.
Our experience will lead to an efficient result for your petition. It is excedingly difficult for an attorney to read and understand each of the 100 cases in this area of law unless they have previously represented newspapers in seeking adjudication. With experience on behalf of petitions and contestants, our team knows the questions that have been answered and those that have not, ensuring effective advocacy for your newspaper.
We have represented newspapers of national, regional and local prominence throughout Southern California. This means we have obtained or opposed adjudication orders throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Ventura counties. Judges in each of these counties have trusted our experience.
