Municipal Law

Police Practices, Jail Liabilty, Emergency Medical Services, Medical Care Facilities and Community Mental Health Services.  These areas of municipal services are some of the more important ones a government can offer, but they also expose the municipality to substantial risk of liability.  Oftentimes the service being provided is to a high risk segment of the population by employees who are working under stressful circumstances.  The members of our firm appreciate the dedicated service being offered by these employees.  We have litigated hundreds of such cases in state and federal courts.  In addition, we have also been instrumental in drafting policies and procedures or legislation, through our work on various municipal committees and task forces, to promote better practices and reduce costly expenses for Michigan municipalities.
