It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of our friend and colleague, Greg Wedner. Greg passed away on Tuesday, June 30 after a battle with cancer.

Greg dedicated his life to his family and advancing public agency law. His presence as an attorney started in 1975 when he graduated from Southwestern University School of Law. For the next eight years, he developed a keen sense for representing clients in commercial/business and civil litigation. His respected, yet tenacious, ability to chair federal and state trials was evident in his early years of practice. He successfully represented clients in two published decisions within his first five years of practice.

His passion for public agency law was accelerated when he became a founding member of Bergman, Wedner & Dacey, Inc.  For the next eighteen years, Greg specialized in representing public agencies in employment, construction, land use and human resources litigation.

He would go on to use his unmatchable, eloquent style to try numerous bench and jury trials in state and federal courts throughout California. His rise to becoming one of the State’s most revered litigation attorneys was unmistakable with numerous published appellate decisions.

In 2001, upon Greg’s arrival Lozano Smith’s culture and story was enhanced forever. Having served as Managing Partner of the law firm from 2007 to 2014, his leadership guided clients and Lozano Smith to continued success. His way with words was truly unique and admired. His legal acumen helped pave the way for countless cities, counties and school districts to achieve greatness, and most importantly, positively impact communities and children throughout California. We will all remember Greg's love for his family, his sense of humor, his musical talents, his exemplary litigation career, and his good works.

On behalf of Lozano Smith, thank you for the condolences and your continued support. 

We are all better because we knew Greg. He mentored many, and he inspired us all.

We miss you, Greg. Your impact and legacy will be cherished forever.
