[ARCHIVED] San Gabriel Names Keith Lemieux City Attorney

Keith Lemieux, of Olivarez Madruga Lemieux O’Neill, LLP

Following an extensive search, San Gabriel officials announced today that Keith Lemieux, of Olivarez Madruga Lemieux O’Neill, LLP, will be the new City Attorney for the City of San Gabriel.

Lemieux, 50, comes to San Gabriel with an extensive background in representing government entities with an emphasis on government liability and environmental law.

“We’re thrilled to have Keith Lemieux and his firm join the city and the community,” said Mayor Juli Costanzo. “Keith’s expertise will serve the city well, and we look forward to working with him and his firm moving forward.”

In his new role, Lemieux will be advising the City Council on all legal matters pertaining to the city, including the preparation of all ordinances, contracts, resolutions, bonds and written matters required by the council. In addition, Lemieux and members of his firm will also be attending City Council and Planning Commission meetings.

“San Gabriel is an attractive community because it’s an important city within the region,” Lemieux said. “Historical locations such as the San Gabriel Mission and the Mission Playhouse, coupled with the city’s cultural diversity, make San Gabriel very unique.”

Lemieux holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Government from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a Juris Doctor from Pepperdine Law. Lemieux also serves as the City Attorney for the City of Ridgecrest, and has previously served as the City Attorney for the City of California City.

Lemieux succeeds Robert L. Kress, who served as City Attorney for the city from 1989 until his retirement in 2017.

“I’ve made some really good friends here,” Kress said. “They are certainly more to me than people I work with, and it’s hard to say goodbye.” 

“Bob Kress has served the city reliably for nearly three decades, and we’re incredibly appreciative of his work,” said Costanzo. “He’s left an indelible mark on the city and we wish him the very best.”
