Municipal Law Firm Serving Madison, Macoupin, Bond, Greene, Jersey, Calhoun Counties In Illinois
Governmental entities or municipalities, such as villages, towns, and cities, are the local units of government which have the most impact upon and interaction with its residents or citizens. Municipalities are generally governed by a mayor and city council or board of trustees. The citizens elect their officials or leadership, and they place great trust and confidence in the efficiency, fiscal responsibility, and professionalism of their local government.
The Law Firm of MillerKing does represent municipalities or local governments, such as municipal corporations, police and fire commission boards, and civil service commissions.
We believe in representing municipalities because it provides an opportunity for us to give back to the community in which we serve and live. It is also an opportunity to not only serve the local municipality, but help fellow citizens make their local government work and function effectively and positively, namely for individuals, families, and small businesses.
We offer affordable yet assertive legal advocacy as well as place an emphasis on the practical application of the law. We strive to offer sound and practical advice, propose reasonable and unique legal solutions to resolve disputes, attend city council and board meetings, appear in court and evidentiary hearings, and work with local citizens to promote a transparent and ethical local government.
Our representation is grounded with the understanding that the citizens – who are the taxpayers and voters – expect their local government and its elected officials to function and perform properly and efficiently with fiscal responsibility. Our goal is to provide not just sound legal advice, but to engage and seek conflict resolution.
In Municipal Law, legal issues may arise out of the hiring and termination of employees, parks and recreation, street department, eminent domain, Open Meetings Act, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), zoning, landlord-tenant, union, governmental and construction contracts, environment, and city codes.
