Representation for Municipal Government Officials in Massachusetts
Brody, Hardoon, Perkins & Kesten, LLP is one of the leading municipal litigation firms in Massachusetts. Our attorneys have conducted scores of jury trials throughout the Commonwealth. We pride ourselves on both sound guidance and aggressive representation and our reputation as a trial firm helps us resolve issues quickly and effectively. More than that, we offer good, reasonable advice which has often prevented litigation.
Led by founding partner Leonard Kesten, BHPK has represented dozens of municipalities in the Commonwealth in hundreds of cases involving civil rights claims, land use issues, and personal injury cases. We have also represented numerous municipalities in employment law disputes before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination (MCAD) and the state and federal courts.
Since our foundation in 1995, BHPK attorneys have conducted more jury trials representing municipalities than any other firm in the state. We have obtained numerous appellate decisions in the area of municipal law. We defend police officers, town administrators and elected and appointed officials, school personnel, and other municipal employees in state and federal court as well as before administrative agencies like the Massachusetts State Ethics Commission. We understand that the needs of each client are unique, and we work diligently to create individual solutions that truly address our clients’ legal concerns.
Solutions that Really Solve Problems
What does a legal solution really mean? For some clients, it’s a quick and cost-effective resolution that allows them to return to business as usual. For another client, it may be a hard-fought win that can serve to deter others from filing similar frivolous litigation in the future. When BHPK accepts your case, we work closely with you to determine and evaluate the possible solutions available. Our lawyers help you understand which ones will truly meet your needs. We recognize that every step taken should lead to the desired solution. We then develop a strategy designed to achieve the best solution for you. We have had unparalleled success in achieving these ends.
