It has been our experience that the two most common criticisms of municipal counsel are the lack of responsiveness and failure to provide prompt, clear recommendations in response to requests for advice.  Municipal government is a 24/7 operation, and issues often arise after “normal” business hours. Our clients are provided with our mobile phone numbers and it is not uncommon for us to speak with clients on nights or weekends.  We offer a flat monthly fee to clients for unlimited phone and email access, which many clients utilize. Under this structure, the client is not billed for phone calls or email response unless the matter requires significant research or a very detailed response.  It has been our experience that it is advantageous to the client to be able to seek guidance or counsel on a proactive basis rather than to spend significant sums in defense of litigation.

 

Clifford and Kenny, LLP was formed in 2013, however, John Clifford has more than twenty (20) years of experience working in municipal government, and Jaime Kenny brings more than ten (10) years of experience in the field. We are able to offer clients sound, practical advice to solve most problems before they get to litigation.  For those issues that are litigated, we have a strong track record of achieving success for our clients.

 

Providing effective counsel for our clients includes training and updating clients on developing trends in municipal law. We are very active in training and participating in seminars regarding developing municipal trends, and have lectured before the Massachusetts Municipal Association, the Massachusetts Municipal Managers Association, the Massachusetts Municipal Lawyers Association, the Massachusetts Association of School Committees, the Fire Chiefs Association of Massachusetts and the Southeastern Massachusetts Chiefs of Police.
