The city of Elk Grove is in the southwestern portion of the 916 area code and the middle of the northern part of California. Elk Grove was founded in 1850, but it was not incorporated until 2000. With a population of 155,937 people, Elk Grove is the second-largest city in Sacramento County. Elk Grove is home to a sizable Asian-American population, who account for over a quarter of the population, and one of the largest Native American populations in California.
The city is considered to be a bedroom community for the more metropolitan city of Sacramento, which is located just to the north. Since the city is very residential, many Elk Grove lawyers deal with domestic matters, such as child custody disputes and divorce law or handling people’s estate planning. However, Elk Grove does support small healthcare, manufacturing, and insurance industries. The city’s major employers are Kaiser Permanente, AAA, Apple, Methodist Hospital, and Alldata.
Members of the legal community who are enamored with Western culture never fail to attend the annual Elk Grove Western Festival. Classical musical aficionados from all over the 916 area code come to Elk Grove to attend the Strauss Festival, which celebrates composer Johann Strauss’s body of work. Lawyers who frequently play golf enjoy hitting the links at Emerald Lakes Golf Center and Valley Hi Country Club. Birdwatchers living in the 916 area code love identifying and observing birds at the Stone Lakes Refuge, which is along the Pacific Flyway. Attorneys and other professionals who are fans of Charles Dickens enjoy attending Old Town Elk Grove’s Dickens Faire.
