About

The Local Government Law Group was established in 2008 as part of the Speer Hoyt law firm. We offer Oregon’s local governments and public agencies affordable access to a team of skilled attorneys who each have a singular focus on government law and its nuances. Our team works all aspects of government law, from legislation to land use to labor law.

Trust

We pride ourselves on the longevity of our client relationships and a high rate of referral. Many governments discover us when they participate at conferences and enlist our help, never turning back.

Approach

Our strong client relationships grow out of our commitment to good government and client needs. We provide rapid response, substantive and accurate guidance, and outcomes that respect the law as well as our clients’ goals. Our work is grounded in our belief that good government and solid legal positions grow out of plain language advice focused on achievable and tailored outcomes.

Alliance

The Local Government Law Group was formed by members of Speer Hoyt, LLC in 2008. Speer Hoyt is a general practice firm located in Eugene, Oregon. Our founding partners — Kenneth Jones, Christy Monson and Carolyn Connelly — conceived of this specialty law practice group while at Speer Hoyt and experiencing the significant government law demand. The two firms are co-located and our clients benefit from shared legal support services.

 

It’s true: there is no greater satisfaction than a job well done.
