Local Government Law

Serving Those Who Serve the Residents of Virginia

63 years representing local governments
144 years of combined experience
19 governmental entities represented on a daily basis

Local government law is one of the things that we do best at Litten & Sipe. Every lawyer with our firm has some responsibility and practice experience in government law that begins accruing on their first day of practice with our firm. We believe that our decades of experience and focus on local government law give us an advantage over any competitor.

Our firm has a long and distinguished track record for representing local government entities of almost every type, including authorities, commissions, towns, cities, and counties.  We provide exceptional legal representation on a daily basis to numerous governmental clients, including:

  • Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission
  • City of Waynesboro, Virginia
  • City of Winchester, Virginia
  • County of Shenandoah, Virginia
  • County of Warren, Virginia
  • Harrisonburg-Rockingham Regional Sewer Authority
  • Harrisonburg Electric Commission
  • Harrisonburg Redevelopment and Housing Authority
  • Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission
  • Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center Commission       
  • Town of Bridgewater, Virginia
  • Town of Dayton, Virginia
  • Town of Luray, Virginia
  • Town of New Market, Virginia

Based upon our vast local government experience, we are often asked to represent residents opposing their local government. When there is not a conflict of interest, we accept compelling cases against local governments.
