About Us

Our founding partners — Kenneth Jones, Christy Monson and Carolyn Connelly — formed the Local Government Law Group P.C. in 2008. The firm was created to provide a specialized law practice to serve the needs of government entities across Oregon. 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.


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.


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.

It’s true: there is no greater satisfaction than a job well done.
Here’s what a few of our clients have to say about the work we do.
