Advocates for Georgia's Local Governments

Extensive Litigation Experience for Local Governments

Through the extensive expertise of partners Frank E. Jenkins, III, and Brandon L. Bowen, our firm is committed to providing litigation and consultation services for local city and county governments, and other public authorities.

Jenkins & Bowen, P.C., has a solid reputation for defending and protecting the interests of local governments. Our firm has represented government entities not only in Cartersville and Bartow County, but all throughout the state of Georgia. Our attorneys possess sophisticated local government litigation experience. We routinely analyze city ordinances, zoning issues and business contracts. It is our goal to provide litigation strategies that best protect the civil interests of Georgia's local governments.

Ordinance Issues

Our attorneys are often sought out to draft city and county ordinances, and to revise current land use and zoning ordinances. When city and county ordinances become obsolete — not compliant with current regulations — we can help ensure compliance.

Our firm's lawyers provide legal reviews for local governments. We understand zoning ordinances. We review current zoning ordinances and revise them so they are legally compliant. We have extensive experience with the following ordinances:

  • Adult entertainment
  • Signs (business, political, residential)
  • Billboards
  • Religious Land Use Institutionalized Persons Act (RLUIPA)

Lawsuit Representation

  • Budget-related lawsuits
  • Solid waste management plan revisions
  • Landfill actions
  • Contract disputes and business litigation
