Petaluma, CA is located in Sonoma County, CA with a population of 54,540. Petaluma derives its name from an original Coast Miwok Indian settlement east of the Petaluma River. The city was originally part of the 66,000 acre Mexican land grand of 1844, and the city retains the 1836 adobe summer home of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. Petaluma grew during the California Gold Rush, and today residents and visitors alike are still drawn to the Victorian buildings nestled throughout its downtown.
Petaluma's proximity to San Francisco has continued to draw new settlers, including many distinguished Petaluma lawyers. Lawyers in Petaluma are experienced in dealing with legal matters involving business, real estate, family, immigration, personal injury, and wills, trusts, and estates.
Lawyers in Petaluma recently defended a local couple against allegations of fraud. The lawsuit alleged that Aldo and Karen Baccala did not clearly represent business opportunities in East Coast assisted living centers and the Premier Mushrooms company in California or the existence of collateral for those businesses.
