Dickie, McCamey & Chilcote’s Municipal Law Group provides a valuable team of legal talent, with extensive municipal knowledge, to meet the needs that arise from local governments’ complex legal issues.
DMC’s municipal attorneys serve townships, boroughs, cities, counties, and other municipal entities, which include schools and school districts, water and sewer authorities, planning agencies, and zoning hearing boards throughout Pennsylvania. Attorneys in this group possess decades of experience in all aspects of legal issues unique to these governmental bodies and act as solicitors and special counsel, representing municipalities in all issues related to their public purpose.
We act on behalf of the entity in matters of municipal governance; open records law; labor, employment and personnel issues; public bidding and contracting; eminent domain; tax assessment appeals; zoning and land use; and litigation and appellate court advocacy. DMC attorneys also handle bond issues and other tax-exempt financings for government entities.
While helping our municipal clients with their immediate legal needs, Dickie McCamey provides legal expertise in specialty areas that overlap. This enables us to help prepare for the future, preventing impending problems, which in the end can save taxpayer money.
