Municipal governments are close to the people they serve. When city council members, town commissioners and appointed officials act, the citizenry knows. The lawyers representing such public institutions must not only be knowledgeable of the law, but also timely with their counsel, practical with their advice, and keenly aware of the client’s unique political, economic and community character. With the largest and most diverse private practice group in Maryland devoted to representing counties, municipalities and other public entities, Funk & Bolton attorneys are actively engaged with officials statewide in the areas of municipal law, litigation, land use and public finance, and providing advice and advocacy on virtually every type of issue confronting local governments. Funk & Bolton currently has offices in Baltimore, Annapolis, Chestertown and Bowie.
