Code Enforcement

Code Enforcement

Our prosecutors have handled hundreds of municipal code prosecutions and code enforcement matters. We offer comprehensive code enforcement focusing on compliance, cost recovery, and expedience. We have prepared code enforcement, abatement, and cost recovery ordinances.

We have substantial experience obtaining search, seizure, abatement, and inspection warrants and have obtained area-wide search warrants on behalf of our entities allowing inspection of hundreds of properties at time.  We have brought scores of civil nuisance abatement and Health and Safety Code receivership proceedings.

We have closed illegal massage establishments, drug houses, marijuana dispensaries, abated liquor stores selling alcohol to minors, prosecuted sign violations, obtained court ordered receiverships of numerous substandard and dangerous properties, and obtained nuisance injunctions against loud party houses. 

We have provided training and briefings to the Orange County Police Commanders Association on massage regulations and the Orange County Community Police Officers Association on issues associated with homelessness. 

We have provided services to many cities wishing to enforce massage regulations and assisted the City of Newport Beach in closing over twenty problem businesses.

We obtain a county-wide area inspection warrant for the Orange County Mosquito and Vector Control District.
