Welcome to L+G LLP Attorneys

Two of Monterey County's most-respected law firms have joined forces under a new shingle to field an all-star team of attorneys offering expanded services to clients on California's Central Coast.

Gilles, Rosenthal, Johnson, Rovella, Retterer & Sullivan, L+G, LLP, Attorneys at Law has emerged as one of the county’s largest law firms after the marriage of Monterey-based Bohnen, Rosenthal & Kreeft with L+G, LLP, Attorneys at Law (formerly known as Lombardo & Gilles), which is headquartered in Salinas, with additional offices in Monterey, Hollister, King City and Paso Robles.

The merger creates a powerhouse firm with six principals, as Robert E. Rosenthal (of Bohnen, Rosenthal & Kreeft) joins forces with Jeffery R. Gilles, Jason Retterer, Paul Rovella, Aaron Johnson and Brad Sullivan (of L+G).
