Law, government affairs, politics, and public policy often overlap. JFM Law provides legal services to clients in managing relations with local, state and federal government agencies, and elected officials. Government activity reaches into many areas of clients’ businesses and an attorney can assist with the development and implementation of a strategic approach to advocate for and/or oppose relevant legislation and/or ordinances, navigate government investigations and/or public relations crises, and accomplish your goals to allow your business to continue to operate in a profitable manner.
