Municipal law

There are some similarities between local government entities and private companies. However, the differences are important to understand, and N. Stotler Law brings a unique perspective having represented significant numbers of both public and private entities. Local governments are wholly creatures of the legislature and must balance all actions and inactions against an overlay of Constitutional and Civil Rights responsibilities. N. Stotler Law has vast experience in this area of law and is ready to handle the following for municipalities:

  • Employment and human resource issues
  • Contracts and procurement
  • Land use and development
  • Zoning issues
  • Negotiation of intergovernmental cooperation agreements
  • Acquisition or disposition of personal and real property
  • Representation in matters involving sanitary sewer, stormwater, and water distribution systems
  • Consultation regarding compliance with the Pennsylvania Sunshine Act and the Open Records Act

Premises liability cases can revolve around commercial property locations such as grocery stores, banks, schools, and more. These cases also often involve private residence owners who fail to take steps to keep their guests safe.
