Local & State Government Law – Lawyer in Macon
As you may know, there are different types of laws that citizens must abide by. Federal law applies to anyone in the United States. State laws can be different depending on which state you are located, as well as local laws. Local laws apply to a specific county, city, or town. The lawyers in Macon at Noland Law are equipped with the knowledge of local and state government laws when it comes to the municipalities of Georgia and the state at large. We represent cities, counties, law enforcement agencies and officers, government officials, and governmental boards in all matters of local government law.
Here are some common cases that fall under local and state government law.
Being a member of a board is an important position. The National Council of Nonprofits advises, “Just as for any corporation, the board of directors of a nonprofit has three primary legal duties known as the ‘duty of care,’ ‘duty of loyalty,’ and ‘duty of obedience.’” If your organization’s board needs representation in the courtroom, William Noland, a lawyer in Macon at Noland Law Firm can assist.
The Federal Tort Claims Act permits private parties to sue the United States in a federal court for most torts committed by persons acting on behalf of the United States. Some examples of a government liability case are:
- Being hit by a United States mail truck.
- Falling into an uncovered hole on a city street.
- Negligent damage to a person or property by police.
If you think your case falls under the government liability criteria, contact the lawyer at Noland Law, William Noland.

Injury and civil rights cases involving governmental entities are complex and unique due to the limits on liability and the immunities afforded by the government.

For example, if you are a victim of discrimination or assault due to your race or sexual orientation.
