California Political Law Lawyer
Santa Cruz Attorney
People who run for public office in California, as well as people who have organized to support or oppose a ballot measure, must meet specific and complicated legal requirements. At the Santa Cruz law firm of Timothy J. Morgan, Attorney at Law, we advise political candidates, treasurers, campaign managers, and ballot measure committees on compliance matters such as:
- When you have to file papers
- Regulations concerning contributions you can accept
- Limitations on contributions you can receive
- Limitations on expenditures you can make
If you proceed in disregard of these laws, you can get into very serious difficulty. You can even go to jail.
All campaigns face regulation on some level. Often a candidate will find him or herself caught in a thicket of local, state and even federal agencies with some degree of oversight of the campaign. Failure to comply with all of the regulations can be expensive as all the agencies have the authority to levy fines. This is in addition to the possible embarrassment. You can be sure your opponent's campaign will tell the world when you've made a mistake. We can help you keep it all straight and make sure your campaign is run in accord with all the campaign laws.
