GOVERNMENT AND PUBLIC AGENCIES

We’ve worked for NJ Local & State Governments

A core group of our attorneys, all with distinguished careers in public service, have made governmental law one of the hallmarks of CQ’s practice. We understand the way government works, because we’ve been there. We have been judges, town administrators, prosecutors, and ethics committee members. We can help you find the relevant government agency and the proper department to address your needs, and work with you to move as quickly as possible toward your goal.
