Southern Maine Municipal Law Attorney
Legal disputes and negotiations with local government entities and government agencies over municipal law issues are hardly ever straightforward or simple. Government procedures and the law itself are complex, and each area of the law and every municipality requires a different approach, often through a different channel.
Each municipal law case is unique and in need of its own customized preparation and resolution. At the Law Offices of David A. Lourie, the particulars of your case are analyzed closely. I am detail-oriented and communicative. My evaluation of your case is precise, and I work collaboratively with you to develop a practical strategy and path to resolution that can accomplish your best possible outcome.
Contact me as soon as possible to discuss your legal situation. Many municipal law claims and defenses have a statute of limitations as short as thirty (30) days that can disqualify your claim or defense if you do not file an appeal. I understand these rules and exceptions. I can help you navigate the municipal and legal systems. Call me today at 207-799-4922.
