Krysten Hicks


We note with sadness, but also with fondness and respect, the passing of our colleague Krysten Hicks, an attorney in our Sacramento office. Krysten Hicks started her legal career at Meyers Nave in 2006, after graduating from McGeorge School of Law, with not only a J.D. but also an L.L.M. in Local Government and Public Policy.
After joining our firm, Krysten soon became the Assistant City Attorney for Citrus Heights. She later became the Assistant City Attorney for Pittsburg and the City Attorney for Colusa. She developed expertise in many areas of municipal law, including land use, Brown Act, Public Records, conflicts, code enforcement and medical marijuana.
Krysten worked tirelessly, whether serving on MN’s committees and as a resource to other attorneys in the firm, or as an active member of California Special Districts Association, where she was a long-time member of CSDA’s legislative committee and an often-requested public speaker.
Krysten would want to be remembered not with sadness, but for her contributions to the firm, the high quality of her legal work, her enthusiasm, and her love of life. She was and will always be a true member of the Meyers Nave Family.
Krysten's family has asked that donations be made in lieu of flowers to the Chester Foundation for stray and disadvantaged pets or to St. Jude’s Foundation for Children with Cancer.
