I am Associate General Counsel with St. Joseph Health System headquartered in Irvine, California.  We are an integrated healthcare delivery system and provide a full range of care at various facilities including 14 acute care hospitals, home health agencies, hospice care, outpatient services, skilled nursing facilities, community clinics, and physician organizations throughout California, West Texas, and Eastern New Mexico.  We have had the pleasure of working with Paul Watkins since 1994 on a wide array of real property, ground leasing, office leasing, construction, financing, purchase/sale, title, entity organization, transactional, land use, development, subdivision, environmental, property tax, and other real estate-related business matters.

Over the course of our long relationship with Paul, St. Joseph Health System and its affiliates have been most pleased with Paul’s abilities, deliverables, eagerness to please, responsiveness, professionalism, and superb results.

Without exception, Paul has been approachable, personable, easy to work with, and results oriented at a fair cost.  Not infrequently, we ask Paul to provide services on short notice and Paul has gone the extra mile to timely assist and to exceed our expectations.  It is a privilege for me to highly recommend Paul to ably handle a wide range of real estate and business matters.
