Municipal/Public Sector

Thomson, Rhodes & Cowie attorneys bring a wealth of experience in municipal law matters, including municipal governance, zoning and planning, infrastructure issues, including sewers and storm water runoff concerns, taxation, municipal tort immunity and risk management and election law.

We have also defended Townships, Boroughs, Municipalities, Police Officers/Police Departments and Volunteer Fire Departments in lawsuits filed by individuals seeking recovery for accidents which occur due to roadway conditions, sidewalk conditions, “trip and falls,” and other incidents which occur on Township or Borough regulated properties.

Our attorneys are attuned both to the concerns of municipalities in their dealings with citizens, other municipalities and the Commonwealth, and to the concerns of citizens dealing with municipalities.  Shareholder Harry Rosensteel serves as a municipal solicitor and other shareholders have worked on a variety of municipal issues for over 30 years.
