Serving Southeast Michigan For Over 30 Years.

Municipal Law

Members of our Michigan firm have represented local governments for over 45 years. The representation of public entities is extremely important work, as the taxpaying public expects its municipal entities to have the most competent and useful legal advice at the most reasonable cost.

O'Reilly Rancilio's experience with local governments in Michigan has resulted in a unique expertise in areas of the law such as the Open Meetings Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the various Home Rule Acts, planning and zoning statutes, economic development laws, and other laws and regulations relating to the day-to-day business and concerns of municipalities. Our history of service for municipalities has also resulted in a familiarity with technical codes (for example, past and present building and fire codes) and internal policies (such as police department general orders and internal fire department policies) that has proven extremely valuable for our municipal clients.

The firm maintains a municipal law group of the attorneys within the firm who regularly need to address municipal legal concerns. We are also members of the Michigan Municipal League and the Michigan Association of Municipal Attorneys. Our Macomb County municipal practice group members regularly review a variety of municipal publications to stay current on the pressing issues facing municipalities in the 21st century.

The combined experience of the firm's attorneys is unparalleled, and the firm is uniquely qualified to serve any and all municipal legal needs that may arise.
