Are you looking for Nebraska law firms with municipal law attorneys to represent counties, townships, cities, villages, sanitary & improvement districts, or other political subdivisions?

Elected officials serving on boards of Nebraska counties, cities, towns and villages are often surprised at the number and variety of legal issues they face as public officials of political subdivisions.

Open meetings laws must be enforced, public records rules must be followed, personnel and procurement policies must be adhered to.  Local ordinances must be enforced against the public fairly.  County and municipal bodies must set and collect taxes, fees and assessments to ensure sufficient cash flow to meet the government’s financial obligations.
