Neumiller & Beardslee represents a number of different public agencies in the capacity of general counsel or city attorney. An attorney who practices public agency law will be called upon to advise such clients on all aspects of day-to-day government.
As general counsel or city attorney, the attorney will confront a wide range of issues, including the enactment and amendment of ordinances, financing of public agencies (including Proposition 218 procedures), formulation of zoning policies, code enforcement problems, carrying out eminent domain proceedings, interacting with other state and local agencies, personnel issues, addressing issues involved in constructing and operating public works, drafting of development agreements, and the conduct of public meetings. Our public law attorneys also attend city council meetings and planning commission meetings, as well as board of directors meetings for various districts.
