Municipal / Local Government

Email Page »

Overview

To counsel and guide municipalities through all of the issues which confront local government today requires a special understanding of the challenges they face - serving both the needs of the municipality as well as the constituents it serves. This understanding must also be coupled with the experience and knowledge necessary to draw on in providing viable options to municipal officials and boards to meet those challenges.  Finally, the law firm hired must be aware of the budgetary restraints facing municipalities and the need to provide services that are thorough, but sensitive to these constraints.

Drake Loeb PLLC is proud to offer municipalities this level of experience, knowledge, and service. Our highly respected attorneys practicing in this area are well known for the quality of legal counsel they offer municipalities in all capacities. Indeed, our firm has encountered most, if not all, of the issues which confront local government throughout our long history of municipal representation.

We act as town and village attorneys for large and small municipalities and regularly appear before numerous municipal boards. To complement these services, our firm has represented municipalities in all manner of litigation in both state and federal court.  We have defended municipalities in cases ranging from slip-and-fall claims to civil rights suits, but we are equally at ease prosecuting zoning violations and traffic tickets.  We have also represented municipalities in contract actions, mechanics lien lawsuits, Article 78 proceedings, RPTL Article 7 proceedings and employment discrimination administrative proceedings.  Our ability to represent so many municipalities on such a wide variety of litigation is due, in part, to our status as panel litigation counsel for NYMIR and other major carriers. 

We are available for representation with a monthly retainer arrangement or on an hourly basis with a special municipal rate that will fit in with most municipal budgets.  Please see our representative experience section and the areas of concentration in this practice area for more information.
