We pride ourselves on providing our local government clients with professional and comprehensive legal advice.  Our attorneys have proudly represented Pennsylvania First Class Townships, Second Class Townships, Boroughs, School Districts, and Municipal Authorities for over 30 years.  This experience enables us to give well-considered and knowledgeable advice and guidance essential to municipal operations such as financing, labor and employment, taxation, public bidding and contracts, land use, and zoning projects.  For many years, municipal clients have relied upon our legal analysis and perspectives in order to assure compliance with federal and state statutes and regulations as well as local ordinances.

Our municipal attorneys also have represented municipalities in litigation matters such as eminent domain, code enforcement, and assessment appeals.  We have successfully litigated Sunshine Act, Right to Know, Mandamus, and Injunction cases in the federal and state courts.  We zealously defend our clients when actions are brought against them and we consistently keep our clients fully informed and involved as litigation matters progress.

Our approach in representation of our municipal clients is to anticipate their legal concerns rather than simply to react after an issue arises.  We track the trends in state and federal law and incorporate them into our advice to our clients.

Because of our in-depth experience and strong connections with municipalities, we are often called upon to act as municipal special counsel.  For the same reasons, we represent private clients who are involved in legal matters where the government entity is not our client.

We have extensive experience in providing representation for municipalities on matters related to:

  • Statutory and Regulatory Compliance

  • Sunshine Act

  • Right to Know

  • Zoning/Land Use

  • Public Finance/Bond Issues

  • Tax Assessment

  • Civil Service

  • Police Tenure Act

  • Collective Bargaining Issues
