Counseling For Municipal And Administrative Law Matters
Every city and village in the Riverbend region has its own set of ordinances regarding land use, water use, police and fire protection, and other services provided by the municipality.
At the law office of Hunter & Johnson, P.C., we represent both municipalities and individuals in defense and prosecution of ordinance violations. We are also available to serve as municipal counsel throughout the Riverbend region.
Our firm routinely advises businesses, individuals and municipal bodies about contracts, ordinances, resolutions, personnel matters, real estate matters and any other legal issues that affect their decision-making.
Legal Counsel Regarding Government Matters
We have a comprehensive understanding of municipal law across a wide range of areas, including:
- Public bidding and contracts
- Personnel decisions for public employers
- Laws regarding open meetings and open records
- Water districts
- Fire protection districts
- Levee and drainage districts
- School boards
- Land and zoning use, including the annexation of property for commercial and residential use
We help commercial and residential developers take proactive measures to ensure their development plans adhere to municipal codes. If a dispute over zoning or annexing arises, we work to resolve it amicably without litigating. However, if that proves unsuccessful, we will advocate for you in court.
Aggressive Advocates For Licensed Professionals
Our law firm also represents licensed professionals in the states of Illinois and Missouri who face hearings before disciplinary boards or other career-threatening action. We represent doctors, nurses and other health care providers, lawyers, real estate agents, accountants, teachers, and other licensed professionals.
Disciplinary hearings before agencies such as the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation or the Illinois Department of Public Health are unique processes with potentially serious consequences. It is important to enlist the services of a law firm that knows how to protect your rights and protect your career. We have that experience.
Put Our Experience In Your Corner
We are noted for providing personalized attention, and our emphasis on clear communication with clients throughout the process helps relieve the stress that is commonly associated with these hearings. We welcome the opportunity to review your municipal and administrative law needs, and recommend an effective course of action.
