Our experience and success in this field is significant. We have represented municipalities, state agencies, school districts, zoning boards, planning boards and police departments. On the other side of the coin we have also represented individuals in their dealings with agencies of the federal, state or local governments. We have defended civil rights claims along with many other types of litigation involving government agencies. We have been involved in numerous arbitration cases and we have been the attorneys in a number of leading municipal law cases decided by the Rhode Island Supreme Court and the federal courts. A most difficult area where we have unique expertise is that of special education.
