Municipal Law

Our experience and success in this field is significant.  Our firm has a history of serving communities as Town/City Solicitor, such as Scituate, Coventry, Foster, Smithfield, East Greenwich, New Shoreham, Woonsocket, and others.  We have also served as legal counsel to regional school districts, zoning boards, planning boards and police departments, and have acted as bond counsel for municipal securities. 

With our practice in municipal law dating back generations, we have a focused and developed understanding of the nuances of governmental law.  We have represented municipalities and organizations in countless lawsuits and through arbitration.  We have been the attorneys in a number of leading municipal law cases decided by the Rhode Island Supreme Court and the federal courts.

On the other side of the coin we have also represented individuals in their dealings with agencies of the federal, state or local governments.  We have defended civil rights claims along with many other types of litigation involving government agencies.
