After receiving only two Requests for Proposals for legal services, the Silver Springs Stagecoach Hospital District voted unanimously to retain the law firm of Allison, McKenzie, Russell, Pavlakis, Wright & Fagan.

The Hospital District received one other proposal from Bonnie Drinkwater of Drinkwater Law Offices.

At a previous SSSHD meeting, the Board voted unanimously to retain the Carson City firm and did not specifically name attorney Mike Pavalakis in the motion but discussion was centered on him and his work.

Back in February the SSSHD retained Pavalakis to handle a lease agreement with Eastern Sierra Medical Group and other business transactions the District was facing at that time.

Part of the meeting started out with Board member Vicki Aveiro asking how the board would be evaluating the two attorneys, to which, District General Manager Kari Larson suggested the Board review the two resumes and their qualifications.

The Board then took a five minute break to review each resume.

Once the Board was back on record board member Kay Bennett disclosed that she has had a long standing working relationship with Pavalakis and the firm for many years.

She said, "I was responsible for bringing the firm Allison, MacKenzie to Carson Tahoe Hospital and I use the firm Alice and MacKenzie on other matters for my personal business. I don't feel I have a conflict in how ever I would vote on this issue. I would not have any financial or fiduciary benefit."

Board Chairman Mike Langevin added he did see how Bennett would profit or influence the outcome of the Board's vote and he said of her participation in the vote, "I'd say you're good with us."

He then asked fellow board members if they had a problem with Bennett voting on the matter.

Langevin spoke favorably of Pavalakis and reported when called the Carson City attorney on SSSHD matters, Pavalakis responded within a day or within 1-2 hours. "I know what I've dealt with. I'd like to stay with them (Allison, MacKenzie, et al), and have them represent us our board."

Board member Susan Wells remarked that unlike Pavalakis' proposal, Drinkwater did not list her fees. She noted that Pavalakis included his hourly rate, his associate's hourly rate, paralegal fees and other fees.

"I have been impressed with Mike (Pavalakis). I feel he's a straight forward person. He's knowledgeable and willing to help us," she said.

Larson reported to the Board that Pavalakis has given the district $1,979 in free service and that he did not charge the Board for his attendance at the March meeting, but only charged for his assistant's fee.

During discussion the Board did not disclose Pavalakis' fees or any financial impacts it many have on the budget.
