Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC Announces New Name Effective January 1, 2020

Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC, one of the oldest and largest Southern California Community Association Law Firms, announces it will change its name to Epsten, APC effective January 1st, 2020. The decision to shorten the firm’s name honors it’s past while acknowledging how the firm has been largely recognized by most of the firm’s clients and colleagues since its inception.

There will be no changes in leadership or attorneys as a result of this change. It will be “Same firm. Same service. Same name – just shorter.”  It has always been the firm’s goal to foster a culture based on traditional professional values and service to its clients. This will not change. The firm practices law in an industry where trust, relationships, and excellence define success for its clients and itself.  The firm will continue to provide the same continuity and stability as it has for 33 years.

Managing Shareholders, Jon H. Epsten, Esq., CCAL and Susan M. Hawks McClintic, Esq., together, with fellow shareholders Kieran J. Purcell, Esq., Anne L. Rauch, Esq., Rian W. Jones, Esq. and Dea C. Franck, Esq. agree this new name will better position the firm for its next decade of growth.

Epsten Grinnell & Howell, APC, soon to be Epsten, APC, is one of the largest, strongest teams of common interest development attorneys in the industry with a team of 24 attorneys and three offices in Southern California. The firm is known for its professionalism and quality as well as the reliable legal services it provides to its more than 1,900 community association and commercial common interest development clients.

Despite the new (shorter) name, it is business as usual for the firm as their team of attorneys and staff focus on the recent changes in legislation, to ensure their clients are prepared for the complex legal requirements also taking effect January 1, 2020 and prepare for their well-known and highly regarded Annual Legal Symposium later this year – in which their attorneys will educate more than 1,000 local community association managers and board members in San Diego and the Coachella Valley.
