Experienced Public Agency & Municipal Law Attorneys

Public agencies and municipalities are unique clients that must operate within the confines of constitutional, regulatory, and statutory mandates. To name just a few, these agencies include water districts, school districts, cities, and counties, all of which face a wide range of ongoing legal issues. Ramsden, Marfice, Ealy & Harris offers these clients both general counsel and special counsel services. As general counsel, our law firm guides public agencies and municipalities through the day-to-day operations of running a public entity, complying with local, state, and federal laws, managing risk, and avoiding unnecessary litigation. As special appointed counsel, RMEH has served in a variety of roles, including acting as an independent investigator in personnel grievance matters, training administrators and staff on state and federal laws, and providing legal opinions on potential and pending litigation.

Our attorneys are members of the Government & Public Sector Lawyers Section in Idaho and actively follow important legislative and policy changes affecting our public agency and municipality clients.
