Code Enforcement

As part of our local government practice, we also handle the full gamut of code enforcement matters. We regularly serve as Special Magistrates, representing code enforcement boards and preparing code ordinances. Having handled thousands of code enforcement matters for our municipal clients, we keep up-to-date on pertinent legal developments, and assist our municipal clients concerning lien and code enforcement and handle appeals of code enforcement actions.

Code enforcement during weakened economic times can be a challenge. We have a clear understanding of modern municipal revenue-enhancement strategies, and we work with our clients to achieve the ultimate compliance goals of code enforcement while balancing against the need to maintain the aesthetic quality and fiscal health of our clients.  Our code enforcement attorneys often find themselves immersed in issues dealing with bankruptcy and foreclosure law, and we have become expert advisors in these disciplines as well.  Moreover, we are a leader in using code efficient powers to regulate the residency of sexual offenders as well as other safety measures designed to protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of our municipal clients.
