Since 1979, Attorney Linda Reich has been practicing law. In 1988, she
joined Allen, Semelsberger & Kaelin LLP as an associate. During her
time with our firm, she has worked with many cities and municipalities
across California in state and federal courts. She has worked in the California
Supreme Court, as well as the United States Supreme Court.

has been in defending municipalities against various land use claims,
representing municipal and other clients in complex administrative trial
and appellate proceedings. She has been involved in over 30 reported appellate
decisions in both state and federal courts and was one of the attorneys
who participated in Yee v. City of Escondido in which the United States
Supreme Court unanimously upheld the legality of the City’s right
to enact mobile home space rent control.
Linda received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of California, Berkeley,
and a Juris Doctor from New College of California School of Law in San
Francisco. She has worked for the Public Defender for the County of Marin
