Pegg named acting county counsel

Lori E. Pegg, the assistant Santa Clara County counsel, was appointed to the position of acting county counsel Tuesday.

Pegg will replace former county counsel Miguel Marquez, who was recently appointed to the Sixth District Court of Appeal by Governor Jerry Brown, according to county staff.

Pegg will assume office July 25.

She was appointed to the position by the county board of supervisors.

“County counsel Márquez has provided excellent service to the county of Santa Clara,” said board of supervisors President George Shirakawa. “My colleagues and I are confident that Lori Pegg will do an outstanding job in providing important leadership to the office of the County Counsel.”

Pegg has more than 25 years of experience advising clients on all aspects of public employee relationship issues, including employment discrimination, sexual harassment, equal opportunity employment, civil rights, and collective bargaining, according to count staff.

“I am deeply honored to have been appointed by the supervisors as the Acting County Counsel. I look forward to continuing the great work of our office in assisting the Board and county departments in their efforts to serve the county and community,” Pegg said.

Before joining the Santa Clara County Counsel’s Office, Pegg worked for Hoge, Fenton, Jones, & Appel, Inc., where she represented employers in labor relations, employment discrimination, and education law. She also defended cities, counties, and school districts in litigation and governmental agency actions, and conducted grievance arbitrations and discrimination and sexual harassment investigations.

Pegg’s early legal career included working as Legal Research and Writing Instructor at Santa Clara University School of Law.

The County Counsel’s Office provides the county with legal services for the protection of its programs, departments, agencies, and financial resources, county staff said.

As the acting County Counsel, Pegg will oversee all aspects of the Santa Clara County Counsel’s Office and serves as the chief legal advisor to the board of supervisors. More than 60 attorneys work in the office, which is divided into nine practice areas.
