State and Local Government
Whitfield & Eddy attorneys serve as city attorneys for central Iowa communities and have been retained as special counsel to handle specialty matters. Our strength is our experience and relationships as we work on day-to-day matters and plan for vibrant communities.
City representation has included appearing before the City Development Board, Iowa district courts, and Iowa appellate courts.
We provide legal advice to city managers, municipal boards, city councils, and mayors. In addition to attending city council and board meetings, we are available for emergencies that inevitably arise when managing a growing metropolitan area.
