Silver & Wright LLP Founding Partner Curtis R. Wright detailed the latest topics and important developments in code enforcement during the Fifth Annual San Joaquin Valley Housing Collaborative’s Code Enforcement Symposium on January 30 in Stockton.

During a session entitled “Hot Topics in Code Enforcement,” Curtis, along with Mariah Thompson from California Rural Legal Assistance Inc., provided expert insight on nuisance abatement, code enforcement, receiverships, inspection and abatement warrants, marijuana regulations, and more.

Curtis and Mariah presented innovative ways to support code enforcement efforts and relayed successful models from around the state to inspire attendees to implement effective solutions in their respective communities.

“As a city prosecutor and city attorney, I strive to guide municipalities in addressing challenges to the safety and prosperity of their communities,” said Curtis. “Lawyers from Silver & Wright participate in symposiums, such as San Joaquin Valley’s Code Enforcement Symposium, so we can share best practices for leveraging nuisance abatement to improve the overall well-being of our neighborhoods.”

The San Joaquin Valley Housing Collaborative’s Code Enforcement Symposium uses educational programming to promote development and investment in neglected areas. They consider code enforcement a key resource for improving communities.

Silver & Wright attorneys regularly volunteer by teaching classes and speaking at seminars and conferences all over California on issues relevant to receiverships, nuisance abatement, code enforcement, and police services. The firm’s attorneys have developed unique and cutting-edge solutions to achieve success for their clients in cost-effective ways. To learn more, visit
