We are pleased to announce Neal C. Lutterman, former deputy city attorney for the City of Stockton, has joined our firm.
Neal’s return to private practice focuses on municipal law and defending physicians, hospitals, medical groups and allied healthcare providers in professional liability matters, both strong areas of expertise for Wilke Fleury.
Neal was the supervisor of the Litigation Division in Stockton and a member of the municipal bankruptcy project management team. He served as the primary advisory attorney to a number of key city departments, including the police, fire and administrative services, the latter of which oversaw the finance, budget, accounting, information technology and revenue divisions, as well as the police department’s code enforcement division.
Prior to his tenure in Stockton, Lutterman was a shareholder in the litigation firm of Riggio Mordaunt Kelly & Lutterman. For nearly 15 years there, Lutterman represented physicians, surgeons, hospitals and medical groups in professional negligence actions. Additionally, he successfully represented physician clients before the Medical Board of California and in proceedings before hospital credentialing committees.
