Cambridge Attorneys for Disputes With Municipalities

Town government in Massachusetts is powerful, controlling many important aspects of life in the area within the town's boundaries. There are almost 300 towns in the Commonwealth and more than 50 cities. In either case, when there is a dispute with a municipality, it is important to rely on an attorney who understands how local government works and can make your case effectively, whatever the venue.

At the Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our lawyers undertake actions against towns and cities that have infringed upon the rights of our clients. Such actions can take many forms, from lawsuits and trials to appearing at the town boards to protect our clients' interests. It can be a time-consuming process that requires both patience and an in-depth understanding of how town and city government works in Massachusetts. Our attorneys have been handling such matters for many years and are both skilled and knowledgeable in bringing about a desired resolution.
