What is Municipal Law?

Municipal law is a broad area of law specifically pertaining to cities, towns and other local governments.

Services cover a wide range of issues, including everything from land use and development, employment matters and litigation to ordinance drafting and property taxes.

When should you hire a Municipal lawyer?

Typically, municipal attorneys are hired directly by the municipalities that need representation or general advisory services. We work in partnership with local city leaders and town councils to ensure the nuances of each municipality’s laws are understood and respected.
