Municipal Law

The attorneys of Whelchel, Dunlap, Jarrard & Walker, LLP, have extensive experience assisting clients in multiple facets of government relations. 

In addition to advising municipalities, school boards, and other government entities on issues such as the Georgia Open Records Act and Georgia Open Meetings Act, our attorneys also regularly represent clients on a variety of municipal issues, such as:

  • Land use and zoning. Our municipal law attorneys are experienced at guiding clients through the entire rezoning process, including the DRI (Development of Regional Impact) process, rezoning applications, and appearances before the Planning Commission and County Commission or City Council.
  • Legislative efforts. Clients rely on our assistance in promoting their interests before the Georgia General Assembly, including monitoring the legislative process, promoting bills, and advocating on their behalf.
  • Public finance. Our attorneys are listed in The Bond Buyer's Municipal Marketplace, also known as the Red Book, and have served as either bond counsel or issuer's counsel for dozens of transactions by various public and quasi-public entities.
