Advising Local Governments in the Springfield Area
Many smaller municipalities do not have a dedicated lawyer to answer legal questions and resolve disputes as they arise. At the Springfield law office of Kent Gray, Attorney at Law, Chartered, I fill the role of in-house attorney for cities and villages in Illinois.
Comprehensive Legal Representation
Just as businesses encounter many every day legal issues, municipalities also frequently find themselves in need of legal guidance. However, the laws surrounding governmental entities are often even more complex. I have more than a decade of experience assisting local governments with all of their legal questions and disputes, including those involving:
- Employment law issues
- Labor relations with unions
- Contracting procurement
- Freedom of Information Act issues
- Open Meetings Act issues
- Zoning disputes
- Ordinance violations
- Tax Increment Financing (TIFF)
- Management of municipal utilities
City councils, village boards, school boards, townships, park districts and other local government entities rely on me for the experienced representation they need. Additionally, I provide legal services for elected officials serving in those governments.
Put My Experience to Work for Your Local Government
Employment issues can be complex enough without the added layer of scrutiny involved when local governments encounter legal problems. I have a firm foundation in employment law as well as a deep understanding of the particular regulations that apply to local governments in Illinois.
