Put Our Experience To Work For You

Representing the citizens of a municipality means dealing with a variety of legal issues. Often, those who serve in this capacity are concerned citizens who love their community and have little background in law. They rely on the assistance of an experienced attorney. We have provided such assistance to central Ohio municipal agencies who face these and other legal matters:

  • Drafting ordinances, bylaws, charters and other types of governing documents
  • Drafting and reviewing government contracts
  • Managing issues related to property and zoning
  • Developing responsible economic practices
  • Negotiating contracts
  • Complying with Ohio's Sunshine Laws
  • Assisting with complex real estate matters

The unique concerns municipal governments face require a lawyer with a diverse set of skills. In addition to counseling agencies, it is sometimes necessary for an attorney to represent a city, district, school board or other entity when a lawsuit is unavoidable. These claims can relate to accusations of civil rights abuses, employment law violations, land use issues, regulatory matters or other areas of tort or liability. Our law firm is ready to meet the legal needs of your municipality.
