Advising Municipalities And Government Entities

Government entities are under continuous scrutiny. The smallest mistake will get the attention of the media, taxpayers and regulatory agencies, even if you believe you were acting in good faith. The stakes are high when you are in the public eye, beginning with damage to the reputation of the municipality you work for.

Errors, oversights and allegations of impropriety require an attorney experienced in this complex area of the law.
