Protecting Public Entities – Since 1964
Municipalities face many legal challenges. Local governments rely on legal action to address public health and safety concerns. Municipalities need legal advice to manage issues that arise with their workforces. Public entities, and public officials, also find themselves in need of a legal defense when sued for allegedly violating the rights of a citizen or an employee. In many communities, important decisions are in the hands of volunteers who may not have the skills or experience to run a business with an annual operating budget in the millions of dollars. In addition, the laws which govern the operation of a municipality are frequently different than those for private businesses.
