Municipal Attorneys

Introduction

The municipal attorney is an important resource for a local government. One of the most important functions of a municipal attorney is to act as the "legal advisor" to help prevent, or at least reduce, the possibility of mistakes that can create problems or cause damaging lawsuits. In some cases, the municipal attorney is a municipal employee; however, in most cases, the municipal attorney works for the municipality under an agreement on an as-needed basis.
