About Us

Carter Momsen practices general civil law primarily in Mendocino County, but its attorneys often appear in the courts of neighboring counties and on occasion, throughout northern California. Carter Momsen holds a preeminent AV rating from Martindale Hubbell and, when factoring in the tenure of its predecessor firm Carter, Behnk, Oglesby and Bacik, is the oldest law firm in Mendocino County. Its attorneys have decades of experience with local court and administrative procedure, Mendocino County judges, county and regional government boards, and selecting juries. Within its general civil practice, the firm regularly represents clients in the areas of real estate disputes and transactions, land use and planning, business and commercial law, administrative hearings before county and state agencies, probate and estate planning matters, practicing in the court of appeals and insurance defense.
