Gresham Savage Nolan & Tilden is pleased to announce that prominent land use attorney Ellen Berkowitz has joined the Firm as a Partner and has launched the Firm’s first Los Angeles Office.

Ellen has more than 23 years of experience using effective and winning strategies to resolve her clients’ often-difficult and politically charged matters.  She provides strategic, legal, business and political advice to clients involved in the development of real property.  Ellen has an extensive background in governmental advocacy, representing businesses and trade associations in connection with government contracts, compliance with government regulations, as well as legislative and political reform for a variety of industries.  A native of Los Angeles and resident of downtown LA, Ellen looks forward to bringing Gresham’s winning strategies and philosophy of service to her hometown.

With a 100 year track record as one of the most respected and influential law firms in the Inland Empire, Gresham Savage recently expanded into San Diego and believes the Los Angeles market will be an ideal platform for its brand of legal services.
