Governmental Law

The legal issues facing municipal entities are complex, unique and nuanced. Elected officials and municipal committees and boards have to make decisions in the interests of the community, businesses and citizens who must follow code. As such, it is of immense importance partnering with a skilled municipal law lawyer.

Based in Houma, Louisiana, The Watkins Law Firm is prepared to bring more than two decades of experience to work on a multitude of municipal law issues.

The firm is ready to represent regional planning commissions, port commissions, hospital service districts and other entities on issues related to:

  • Zoning ordinances and bylaws
  • Permit issues
  • Development
  • Land use regulations
  • Charter review and revision
  • Business licensing
  • Development plans

Additionally, the firm is prepared to consult with elected officials, in addition to municipal departments. By taking a proactive consultative approach, the firm is able to ensure that policies, handbooks, safeguards and best practices mitigate risk before a project is undertaken. This efficiency allows for the conservation of resources in the long run.
