    Long-Standing Tradition of Defending Public Entities

    Since the inception of our firm, Mintzer Sarowitz Zeris Ledva & Meyers, LLP has been defending governmental and public entities in a wide variety of legal matters. Our lawyers combine decades of legal experience with a solid understanding of the federal, state and local laws peculiar to government and public sector entities to provide our clients with a comprehensive plan of defense.  We serve a broad scope of clients, including municipalities, local police departments, zoning boards and school districts, in a diverse range of cases, such as:

    • Allegations of excessive force
    • Civil rights claims
    • Land use claims
    • Political and racial discrimination
    • Monell claims
    • 42 USC 1983 claims

    At MSZL&M, we partner with our public entity and governmental clients to find practical, workable solutions that best address their needs and concerns.  We appreciate the unique budgetary challenges and political constraints confronting our clients and explore all avenues to resolve claims at the earliest possible opportunity.  Our lawyers are also well aware of the media scrutiny and political implications that often accompany a public case and work closely with our clients to protect against and mitigate any damaging effects.
