Municipal law is finding creative solutions to difficult legal problems facing communities. This includes water and waste authorities, townships, school districts, boroughs and municipal entities. Although it is preferable to keep these cases out of court sometimes litigation is necessary.
When representation becomes necessary for a municipality SBEMP has experienced attorneys who have represented public entities at the local, state and federal levels. There are unique challenges involved in the representation of public agencies and municipalities.
The case must be won while serving the interests of the public and working with the community groups, legislators and media. The attorneys at SBEMP are outstanding litigators. They are experienced in both the appellate procedure as well as trials.
Prevention is effective in achieving the goals of a city and less expensive. Our Palm Springs municipal law firm identifies any areas that are liable. We advise on practices, reviewing policies, contract terms and offer experienced strategies. We provide legal services to 35 cities and act as general counsel for public agencies.
