Governmental Entity & Governmental Employee Defense
Attorneys at Pentecost, Glenn and Tilly devote a significant portion of their practice to defending local government entities and their employees. We additionally advise on how to minimize liability through the adoption and enforcement of adequate policies and procedures, and we routinely assist in resolving potential claims prior to litigation. Once a lawsuit is filed, defending governmental entities and/or their employees requires knowledge of nuanced areas of the laws including the principles of sovereign immunity, qualified immunity, and constitutional law. At Pentecost, Glenn, Mauldin and York, we have decades of experience in defending these unique cases.
