The reason this blogger is concerned is he's alleged for over ten years someone has
attempted to kill him many times, their connections to Seeno Construction, that I know them personally from Alamo 1st Ward where I used to attend where my truck once erupted in flames, where I was nearly beaten to death and they control the same Contra Costa Bar Associwillination who seemly are super unwillng to provide me access to legal services that others have access to.

In 2006 my Attorney Sage Sepahi was beaten in Walnut Creek, that my other counsel Donald Gene Moats offices were burned down in 2001, that Contra Costa Consolidated Fire can't find any record of that fire at 1776 Ygnacio Valley Road Walnut Creek.   


This was my divorce attorney's brother-in-law and my ex-wife has known James Greenan via Alamo 1st Ward since 1976, She also knows former Sheriff Richard Rainey anld Sue McNulty Rainey whose nephew committed suicide last year or so they say. 

Obituary: Nathaniel James Greenan - Mormon from Alamo 1st

My divorce attorney was Dax Craven who never said through all my hearings that his father in-law has known my ex-wife since 1980 or earlier.  They all attended Alamo 1st Ward Alamo CA and I wouldn't be surprised that she once Babysat Greenan's children as he lives on Blemer Road just around the corner from former Valle Vista Vista residence.  

It took me several years to piece this together but my plans were to sue Contra Costa Sheriff  Town of Danville, Contra Costa County and LP2a (defunct) but at my 07/24/2013 hearing to find my kids have left the state.  

Strong Law Firm Emerges in Tri-Valley Area.,
Legal Editors


Jan. 25, 2001 - Reflecting the dramatic growth of the Tri-Valley area, four lawyers from Cooper White & Cooper are joining with lawyers from the firm of Smith, Lally & Peffer to launch a new law firm in San Ramon. The new firm, Greenan, Peffer, Sallander & Lally LLP LLP - Lower Layer Protocol , will offer a level of commercial and technology experience that has not until now been available in the Tri-Valley area. They will also focus on emerging companies they feel are currently under represented.

"There's a tremendous opportunity in the Tri-Valley area for professional service firms because of the expansion of the high tech industry," says James S. Greenan, a top rainmaker Rainmaker

Rainmakers are usually compensated very well for their efforts (or connections).
and 28 year veteran of Cooper White. "Our primary emphasis will be on providing legal services legal services n. the work performed by a lawyer for a client. to companies, old and new, that are doing business in this area."

Greenan, along with former Cooper White lawyers Robert Sallander Jr., David M. Ostrander and John P. Makin, are joining forces with partners David Smith, Kevin Lally, Ray Peffer and Jon Ishibashi of Smith, Lally & Peffer to start the new firm in offices in San Ramon. The firm has 10 lawyers, but plans to increase that number to 16 in the next several months.

Greenan and Sallander together bring a $3 million book of business, that includes such clients as St. Paul Insurance, and The Beasley Syndicate, a subgroup of Lloyds of London Lloyds of London

A marketplace in London for underwriting syndicates.
. The Beasley Syndicate will call on the new firm to serve as national technology counsel. Both insurance companies are in the business of providing insurance to companies who encounter claims relating to technology issues such as violation of privacy, security, technology product defects and anti-trust. Greenan, Sallander, and Lally, who have amassed over 90 trials between them during their careers, also represent a variety of local companies such as Seeno Construction, Quintus Corporation and USS-POSCO and public agencies such as the County of Contra Costa.

practice, the firm will boast among the most sophisticated real property, eminent domain eminent domain, the right of a government to force the owner of private property sell it if it is needed for a public use. The right is based on the doctrine that a sovereign state has dominion over all lands and buildings within its borders, which has its origins in and condemnation practices in the state.

The lawyers at Smith, Lally & Peffer add a sophisticated corporate and transactional dimension that complements and builds on the existing business base of Greenan and Sallander. The firm is one of the few in the East Bay whose attorneys have substantial experience in securities, mergers, acquisitions and franchising law. For example, the firm has handled numerous public and private placements of securities, including, most recently, the Initial Public Offering and Secondary Public Offering for Sepragen Corporation of Hayward, California, a bio-pharmaceutical industry company.

The Tri-Valley area, Pleasanton, San Ramon, Dublin and Livermore, is being heralded as Silicon Valley East. Attracted by reasonable housing prices and lower commercial rents, companies are flocking to the area. The area is already populated by big high tech companies -- Sybase, Commerce One, Inc., and PeopleSoft. Five large office projects are planned for the Dublin area, including Cisco Systems, Oracle, and a new headquarters for Sybase. Venture capitalists are also heading to the area.

"We will be one of the first firms with sophisticated business and litigation abilities to focus on the growing companies in this area," says Sallander, "It is very exciting to be at the leading edge of this type of expansion."

FIRM-PROFILE: Greenan, Peffer, Sallander & Lally is a law firm providing a comprehensive spectrum of quality legal services to businesses and individuals. The firm serves a diverse range of clients throughout California and the world, as well as a number of national, multinational and publicly held companies.
