San Antonio Community And Governmental Affairs Lawyers

From city hall to the state capitol, businesses must contend with and get along with the government agencies and entities within whose jurisdictions they exist and work. You may know your business needs solid legal counsel regarding government affairs, but may be unsure about what that means or about who can provide it.

Some government-related issues can be resolved through common sense and good business practices; others call for the advice of a lawyer with relevant experience in the public sector. Whether your matter has to do with real estate development, property rights or a license or permit, our firm can assist you.

We strive to offer wise advice and persuasive advocacy before commissions, councils and other authorities when it comes to:

Mediation As A Solution

Mediation provides a facilitated negotiation environment that is collaborative, efficacious, cost-effective and more confidential than litigation. It is ideal for businesses and individuals who like to fashion their own remedies to problems and maintain as much autonomy as possible.

Business lawyer Wade Shelton is a professional mediator and a charter member of the Texas Academy of Distinguished Neutrals. He also provides arbitration services, effectively serving as a private judge who can render decisions on critical matters outside of court.
