We draft contracts, legislation, legal opinions, and other legal documents. We negotiate on behalf of the City. We advise City officials on how to manage risk and comply with the law. We enforce the Municipal Code. And we defend the City, and City employees, when we are sued. Thank you for visiting our site.
