Municipal & Public Agency Law


RWG's lawyers have specialized in representing all types of public agencies since 1954. During this time the laws governing public agencies and the case law bearing on the operations of public agencies have grown exponentially in volume and complexity. RWG lawyers have been in the forefront of these legal challenges—defending public agencies, shaping the new course of public law, and assisting public agencies through these difficult legal challenges. RWG lawyers continue this tradition, representing our clients with exceptional creativity, tenacity, and determination.  We value the long-term relationships with our clients and know that our most important work is providing the guidance and wisdom to help our clients protect and enhance their communities.
