Government Attorneys

Like individuals, there are times when local and state government find themselves involved in a situation where there is a need for advice from and representation by an attorney. Moreover, there are areas of law in addition to those normally encountered by a citizen where a governmental entity requires legal representation.

The lawyers of Greenberg & LaPeyronnie, LLC have assisted governmental entities in these areas.
