Municipal Law-City Attorney Services
Providing City Attorney Services in Texas
If you are an elected official for a municipality in Texas, you know that legal issues arise on a daily basis. To protect your rights and the rights of your constituents, you want an experienced municipal attorney, someone who knows the concerns you face, who is well-versed in the laws governing cities and other municipalities, who has successfully advised other cities, towns and similar bodies on the legal matters you face.
At the law offices of Bailey & Galyen, we have the skill, knowledge, experience and resources to meet your needs. Attorney Paul F. Wieneskie has been in practice for almost 30 years, and has served as City Attorney for other Texas municipalities, including the cities of Euless and Richland Hills. We are intimately familiar with the potential legal issues facing cities in Texas, and can help you take proactive measures to minimize your risk and protect the interests of your city.
