The Balch Law Group works diligently to get the answers you need when you need them and within your city’s budget. Because of the vast experience and know-how of our lawyers, most of the time we are able to provide answers quickly, if not immediately as they arise in work sessions and council meetings. When further research is required, we strive to deliver results in a timely fashion with city’s budgetary restraints in mind.
When outside specialists are required such as with telecom, financing, or real estate, we remain keenly aware of our cities’ concerns and work with such counsel diligently and cooperatively. At no time does the Balch Law Group or its lawyers pay or accept referral fees from other firms, PACs, or lobbyists for work it accepts or refers.
The firm provides general counsel services to local governments in the Metro Atlanta area. We are currently the City Attorney for Brookhaven and for Pine Lake, both located in DeKalb County. As the general counsel, our lawyers serve as the chief legal advisor for all areas of local government, and advise on economic development and community investment with our clients. Among our many notable accomplishments include bringing the Atlanta Hawks Practice Facility (a joint venture with Emory University) to Brookhaven and negotiating an agreement with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta to support infrastructure improvements in the City of Brookhaven.
We are fortunate that our clients’ trust and confidence allow us to recommend and to retain subject matter experts to advise on those specialized issues they confront.
The firm’s philosophy is to work with elected and appointed officials and to provide a pathway to accomplishing the policy goals of they set for their city.
