Local Government

The firm’s local government practice has been recognized as one of the top local government
practices in the state and includes the representation of the City of New Bern, the Town of Oriental, the Town of Vanceboro, the Town of Alliance, the Town of Aurora and the Bay River
Metropolitan Sewer District. Typical matters include advising clients on police, fire, inspections,
building code, zoning, planning, employment, finance, property tax, grant, water, sewer,
electric, roads, parks, recreation, real estate, general contract and other issues. No matter the
practice area, we work hard to relieve the burden of legal issues from our clients, so that they
can focus on what matters to them. When necessary or appropriate, we assemble multi-
disciplinary teams to counsel clients on the full range of issues. We understand that every client
is unique and every matter is different, and we pride ourselves on being responsive, practical
and inventive, while adhering to the highest standards of practice and providing top-quality
representation in every case.
