MRJ is honored to serve those people who serve the public. Whether the target of a claim is an elected official, public servant, or political subdivision, we are prepared to initiate the best defense available to ensure the least interference with continued public service.

Our attorneys work with counties and cities to improve employment practices and create better compensation systems. We have defended political subdivisions, county commissioners, auditors, prosecutors, sheriffs, coroners, court employees, probation officers, public defenders, and many other local government officials, and employees.  

We are prepared to assist and advise in challenges facing public officials, including:

  • Civil Rights claims involving all areas of law enforcement and constitutional injury
  • Defense of Discrimination, Harassment and Other Employment Practices
  • Timely advice related to anticipated terminations, serious discipline, in-house investigations, and other employment practices that pose risks to employers and managers.
  • Defense of Defamation and other personal injury claims levied against public entities

Our team benefits from decades of experience in representing public officials. We know that the complicated structure and political sensitivities of local governments can impact decision making and litigation defense.  We get it.  We work with our clients to achieve optimum solutions that don’t result in incidental issues.
