David B. Kuhlman Joins Board of Community Catalysts of California
Community Catalysts of California began over 25 years ago in Escondido, California. Parents, teachers and school administrators wanted to keep special education graduates in the community and allow them to live a more independent life. The City of Escondido granted $40,000 to the "North County Career Development Program" to help find employment and provide on-the-job training for these students. Today they have 16 offices throughout California and serve over 1,000 individuals with developmental and other disabilities including autism, cerebral palsy, seizure disorders, or wheelchair dependency. They provide training and support services including employment, housing and daily living skills.
For more than 25 years, David Kuhlman's practice has focused on serving the construction industry, representing owners, developers, builders, and design professionals in every phase of private and public construction, from initial planning through dispute resolution. He practices extensively on the transactional side, where he has structured, negotiated and drafted design and construction contracts for large projects throughout California and in the southwestern United States. Mr. Kuhlman received a Bachelor of Philosophy degree, cum laude, from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio in 1979, and a law degree from the University of California at Los Angeles in 1983. In addition to his involvement with Community Catalysts of California, Mr. Kuhlman also serves as a Director of Community Catalysts Housing Alliance, a non-profit organization dedicated to the creation of housing that would be affordable to individuals with disabilities and others with extremely low incomes.
