Local Governments

Our firm represents cities, towns, counties, and other local governmental entities and authorities in both an advisory and litigation capacity.  We help local governments navigate applicable regulatory and municipal laws, and advise governmental entities regarding proposed ordinances, contracts, policies and procedures, and other legal questions.  We also represent local governments and their elected officials in court if litigation arises.  Our knowledge of land-use law further assists us in providing advisory counsel to governmental entities and authorities.

    • Review and revise local ordinances and resolutions
    • Advise elected and appointed officials regarding legal questions
    • Representation at board or council meetings
