LEGAL TEAM SUPPORTS LEAGUE EFFORTS

LEGAL ADVOCACY

The League General Counsel William Kearns and  League Associate Counsel-Staff Attorney Ed Purcell monitor court decisions that may affect municipalities and bring important decisions to the attention of municipal officials.  Ed monitors proposed state regulations  and prepares comments on those with municipal impact. 

Additionally, the League offers a legal consultation service for municipal attorneys. The League’s legal department is situated at the confluence of many important legal and policy areas and is an excellent resource for municipal attorneys. Our legal department cannot be a replacement for a town’s municipal attorney. Rather, we are an excellent resource for sharing knowledge and providing guidance for the attorneys who counsel New Jersey’s municipalities. If an elected official needs legal advice, that question should be directed to their municipal attorney.   We invite any municipal attorney who requires guidance to contact the League’s legal department for assistance.

This service does not offer “second opinions” or alternatives to elected officials. Their municipal attorney should be their primary source of legal advice.  Under no circumstances will the NJLM legal service establish a client relationship with individual municipal officials or municipalities. Only municipal attorneys currently engaged with New Jersey municipalities may access this service.

Additionally, the League General Counsel and the Amicus Curiae Committee considers requests from municipalities or municipal attorneys for intervention in court cases on behalf of specific local governments in appropriate cases of broad municipal importance in cases pending in the Supreme Court or Appellate Division.

The League’s Associate Counsels have advocated for municipal interest in front of the Appellate Division and Supreme Court in a variety of cases.
