At Crivello Carlson, S.C. our practices offer our clients the excellence, consistency and integrity of our legal counsel across a wide array of legal needs.
Counties, cities, villages and towns, along with their municipal insurers, have for decades asked the municipal team at Crivello Carlson to serve as their general and special counsel, as we combine legal insight and public-policy experience to advise on all aspects of law impacting municipalities. Several of our municipal law attorneys serve as village attorneys, which enables them to draw on that experience in counseling municipalities across Wisconsin. Our municipal clients are statewide.
Our experience ranges from drafting and revising local codes and ordinances, reviewing contracts, assisting in public records and open meetings law compliance, drafting or prosecuting zoning and land use regulations, and providing legal and risk management services on all other aspects of municipal law ranging from code enforcement, fair housing, real estate, taxation, condemnation and eminent domain, employment, litigation, and legislative concerns. Our attorneys are skilled at handling municipal and civil rights cases from inception through trial, and are well versed in current case law and court rulings.
Our experience in these areas of practice and in representing municipal clients allows the municipal team to provide efficient and reliable representation at the highest level to its municipal clients. We can assist municipalities in assessing claims and, if in the best interest of the municipality, negotiate settlements or pursue litigation. We offer years of experience and knowledge in navigating this often difficult area of the law. In our opinion, the municipal attorney’s role is to assist the client in accomplishing their goals in a legal fashion regardless of whether the matter is one that is mundane or one that has captured the attention of the public.
