Frank Splendorio is a Senior Associate at Meyers Nave in the Municipal and Special District Law Practice Group.

Frank currently serves as the City Attorney for the City of Atwater and the City of Plymouth, and Deputy City Attorney for the City of Rancho Cordova and City of Modesto. Frank’s first-hand public law experience includes serving as a Deputy City Attorney in the City Attorney’s Office of the City of Vallejo prior to joining Meyers Nave. In addition to advising on legal and regulatory matters affecting governance, decision-making, daily operations and long-term policy, Frank advises and defends municipalities, school districts and other public entities in a broad range of litigation, including civil rights issues, alleged wrongful conduct, construction disputes, and breach of contract.

Frank also assists cities with the planning, development and implementation of innovative projects, such as providing comprehensive legal guidance to help address a city’s homelessness crisis. Frank drafted legal documents for temporary and permanent homeless shelters and facilities that significantly improved services to the homeless community and reduced quality of life crimes. This successful and innovative project is recognized as a model solution for other cities and the State. Another example is creating an award‐winning code enforcement and prosecution program approach for a city, which includes working closely with a contract community prosecutor.

Frank regularly provides education, training and compliance programs to clients and associations on matters relating to the Brown Act, California Public Records Act, conflicts of interest, and AB 1234, among many others.

While in law school, Frank served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Marvin R. Baxter at the California Supreme Court and as a Judge Advocate General Corps intern for the U.S. Coast Guard.
