Tardiff Law was established in 1980 in San Luis Obispo and has seen several generations of experienced attorneys succeed and retire within its walls. It continues to be a Central Coast staple providing elite legal representation in San Luis Obispo and throughout California. Neil S. Tardiff has practiced law on the Central Coast for over 30 years and his son, Dustin M. Tardiff, a San Luis Obispo native, joined his practice in 2011. Tardiff Law has extensive appellate experience and has handled well over 100 jury trials since its inception with many published opinions. We specialize in Civil, Criminal, and Administrative Appeals and Writs and offer trial consultations, settlement evaluations, and the drafting of pre-trial and post-trial motions. We provide attorneys, corporate, government and individual clients with excellent litigation and appellate advice with 40 years combined trial and appellate experience in both State and Federal Courts. Located next door to the Avila Bay Athletic Club in Avila Beach, California, Tardiff Law is a full service law firm with deep roots in the Central Coast.
Tardiff Law, its staff and attorneys, are active participants in the community and supporters of many local causes and charitable programs. Neil Tardiff is director of the pro bono program for the San Luis Bar Association and is on staff with the newly founded San Luis Obispo School of Law as clinical program coordinator. Neil and Dustin are both members of the Court Community Partners program, a panel of attorneys from around the community who provide assistance to self-represented litigants throughout San Luis Obispo County.
Tardiff Law also serves as legal counsel for: CASA, Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children, an organization devoted to supporting and promoting court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children; the Family Care Network, a local non-profit serving families and children for the purpose of creating family-based treatment programs as an alternative to group home or institutional care for children and youth; and for the San Luis Obispo Tourism and Visitor’s Bureau – to name a few. Our work is our passion and we will always devote our time, effort, and expertise to making the Central Coast and California a better place.
