Local Government Law


Bergen County Municipal LawyersOur local government law attorneys counsel municipalities, zoning boards of adjustment, planning boards and boards of education throughout Bergen County, New Jersey.

The local government law attorneys at Rubenstein, Meyerson, Fox, Mancinelli, Conte & Bern, P.A. provide experienced legal counsel to municipal clients throughout Bergen County.  Our attorneys have been appointed to serve as Borough Attorney, Labor Counsel, Tax Counsel and Board attorney for planning boards, zoning boards and boards of education in several Bergen County municipalities.  As appointed legal advisers to municipalities and to various municipal boards, our attorneys are entrusted to provide elected and appointed officials with legal guidance on such matters as conflicts of interest, the New Jersey Open Public Meetings Act and the New Jersey Open Public Records Act.

In addition, as counsel for municipalities and municipal boards, we represent our clients’ interests before administrative law proceedings and in litigation matters in Tax Court and the Superior Court of New Jersey.  Our attorneys have been involved in several high-profile matters, including a multi-million dollar litigation involving a Bergen County police officer who alleged various claims against the municipality for wrongful termination and discrimination.

The local government attorneys at RMFMC&B benefit from having attorneys, including Douglas M. Bern, Esq. and Lawrence N. Meyerson, Esq. who have served in elected office themselves.  By having served in elected positions, these attorneys are uniquely aware of what it is like to make hard and sometimes unpopular decisions in the communities in which they live.

It is important that municipal entities are counseled by attorneys who are intimately familiar with the laws and regulations impacting their governing bodies.  Bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to each municipal appointment, our attorneys are able to serve as effective legal counsel for our various municipal clients.
