Government Representation

It’s not uncommon for everyday people to find themselves involved in a legal matter, concern or dispute for which they must utilize the services of a good lawyer. When legal matters happen in a government context, however, it takes a Georgia governmental attorney who has intensively studied and worked in governmental law to effectively handle those cases. The legal implications of any given government-related issue are drastically different due their public nature.

For example, if you’d like to expand your business to another area of town, but you need permission to build a parking garage in a certain zone, we can help. Another example, if you are part of a local government or agency and need governmental representation to guide you through what Georgia does and does not allow, we can help.

Government entities and government officials operate within a unique set of legal parameters and expectations. If your situation demands legal representation, you must consult an attorney who understands your background and what's expected of you in your particular jurisdiction.
