Sanchez to its 2019 list of “Top Lawyers” who are considered “some of the region’s most prominent and well respected attorneys.” Jose is a member of Meyers Nave’s Municipal and Special District Law Practice Group and currently serves as City Attorney for the cities of Livingston and Cloverdale, Assistant City Attorney for the City of Modesto, and Town Attorney for the Town of Windsor.

The “Best of the Bar” attorneys were nominated and vetted by a panel of peers who assessed each candidate’s experience and reputation within the legal community. In addition to serving as a guide to the expertise of local attorneys, the special publication also asked the honorees about the most important legal issues of the day, how they got started in the legal profession, and who their legal heroes are.

Q: What is the most important legal issue facing the region, state or nation?
