Division of Law

Judge Gavel


The Division of Law serves as chief legal counsel for the Mayor, Township Council, and other Township agencies and officials, providing general legal advice and representing the Township in cases before federal, state, and municipal courts, and administrative agencies. The attorneys in the Division of Law also serve as municipal prosecutors and supervise work handled by outside counsel.

Inquiries concerning Township legal matters should be submitted via e-mail using the appropriate links.  Parties represented by counsel may only communicate with the Division of Law through their attorneys.

The Division of Law does not provide legal advice to individuals in personal legal matters. In those cases, individuals should consult a private attorney or contact a legal aid agency.
