“We started the firm over 40 years ago, with five attorneys. Now, with over 200 attorneys statewide, our focus hasn’t changed—we continue to provide our clients with practical legal solutions.”
— James Romo, Founding Partner
Atkinson, Andelson, Loya, Ruud & Romo is a full-service law firm with over 200 attorneys in nine offices throughout California. We represent both private and public sector clients, with emphasis in the areas of employment, labor, construction, education, real estate, water, general business and business litigation, corporate and taxation. Through decades of dedicated commitment to high quality legal work and providing consistently practical management solutions to our clients, AALRR has earned a reputation as one of California’s leading law firms—and we'd like to tell you how we got here.
AALRR was founded by education, employment, and labor law attorneys in 1979, and we have grown steadily over the years in response to client demand. Four of our five founding partners remain active members and mentors of our team. Their loyalty to the firm reflects a company-wide trend towards longevity: our retention rate is higher than average, with many attorneys and staff remaining at AALRR a decade or longer.
Our full-service firm is a recognized powerhouse in labor and employment law, education law, cities and counties representation, and litigation—and many of our attorneys have received distinction as Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers in America, and other accolades. AALRR attorneys now serve as trusted advisors to more than 7,000 public and private sector clients.
