Municipal Law

Municipal Law Services

What is municipal and government law? In short, it is the law that is specific to a county or city and the government that operates there. These laws are related to a variety of issues such as education policies, property taxes, zoning, and even law enforcement funding. Why do these types of laws exist? As Americans we value our right to communicate with our government and hold our government representatives to a high standard. This means that municipalities and government bodies must always have knowledgeable legal representation.

Alabama has specific statutes that define the power and authority of the local government. At times residents may challenge these statutes, forcing the government to defend its actions using government and municipal law. These cases can become complicated and time consuming, wasting valuable local resources.
