AtMiyares and Harrington LLP our lawyers work collaboratively and meet regularly to discuss pending matters, update each other on progress, and discuss strategic options.
We take the time to review our clients’ situations so that we can appreciate why issues have arisen and what response is being sought. We then shape our advice carefully so as to offer well-crafted guidance to our clients.
All lawyers in our firm keep themselves and each other current with new developments in the law that pertain to municipal practice. We encourage our attorneys to serve on public boards and committees to develop specialized expertise and to avail themselves of continuing education opportunities.
