Public Entities and Government

We provide effective representation and counsel to municipalities, political subdivisions and government agencies.

What We Do

For decades our firm has provided day-to-day legal advice and representation of Nebraska municipalities, political subdivisions and governmental bodies. Our attorneys presently serve as the city attorney to the cities of Ashland, Fairbury, Milford and Waverly, and we have served as special counsel to the Nebraska Legislature, Nebraska Brand Committee, Nebraska State Fair, Nebraska counties, municipalities and governmental bodies on employment and labor, economic development, environmental and litigation matters and conducting effective internal investigations. We understand parliamentary procedure and Nebraska's Open Meetings Act, allowing us to advise clients on proper procedure and how to run efficient public meetings without running afoul of Nebraska law. When it comes to the successful representation of governmental bodies, we find the way.
