Municipal and Local Government Litigation

Our lawyers represent municipalities and local governmental entities in all types of litigation. We have successfully represented municipalities and local governments, its officials and employees both at the trial court and appellate court levels, including courts of appeals across the state of Texas, in the Texas Supreme Court and before the United States Supreme Court.

Our lawyers have litigated virtually every area of municipal and local government law. Examples of the issues we litigate on a regular basis include:

  • Zoning and Land Use disputes
  • Water rights
  • Annexation and boundary disputes
  • Elections
  • Fair housing
  • Civil Rights
  • Tort claims
  • Code and Ordinance enforcement
  • Construction and Contract litigation
  • Employment and Labor
  • Eminent domain and inverse condemnation disputes
  • Disputes between different municipalities and local governments

Although costly litigation is something we try to help our clients avoid, when litigation occurs, developing and implementing an effective, efficient strategy is key. We believe that our ability to prevail in municipal and local government litigation comes from our vast experience in the representation of municipalities and local governments.

Although successful outcomes in litigation are important, we believe that one of the most important functions we serve is helping our clients avoid litigation. Public bodies are not favored defendants in litigation. Therefore, our lawyers steer our municipal clients in the direction of avoiding or resolving disputes.
