Municipal law is specific to a particular City, Town, County, Township or Municipality. Usually, municipal law includes such things as property taxes, education policies, police power, zoning laws and others.
There is a group of elected officials in each Municipality who are responsible for creating new municipal laws. The elected officials must always create laws that will benefit both the Municipality and the residents. Therefore, a County or City hires a municipal lawyer in Tennessee who will counsel the elected officials and help them make the right decisions according to municipal law.
Municipal lawyers act as the Municipality’s attorneys for specific legal matters and can serve as advocates for the Municipalities they represent before administrative agencies, Courts, commissions and boards. Municipal attorneys can also act as private legal counsel by providing legal services to individuals, corporations, and partnerships and can serve as advocates for those private entities before other Municipalities’ administrative agencies, Courts, commissions and boards.
It is important to remember that municipal law is very complex in general, so it is essential to consult or work with an experienced municipal law attorney with years of professional experience in this field.
