Smaller local governments and the attorneys that provide their general legal services often require specialized legal support for land use, environmental and code enforcement functions. We have experience in providing these services on a contract basis for these local governments in our service area. From legal research and code drafting support on land development codes and comprehensive plans to regular services as special magistrate for code enforcement processes, we understand the needs of these governments and provide the same personal, proactive and cost-efficient support services that we do in our other practice areas.
Public dispute resolution processes require a special sensitivity and team effort to navigate complex social and political issues that always come with public and public-private disputes. Whether it is land use-related, personnel-related or intergovernmental conflict, we are prepared to roll up our sleeves and engage the parties in peace-making and long-term conflict resolution processes.
Our services to local governments are grounded on more than 30 years of work with state, regional and local development firms.
Our service contracts are designed with public stewardship and local government spending concerns in mind.
We are a small firm and deliberately treat all our client relationships as personal relationships. We love collaborating with local government staffs.
