At Kirkbride Law we offer a full range of legal services to our numerous municipal clients including towns, cities, and other local governmental entities.  Kirkbride Law serve as general counsel, special counsel and litigation counsel to these various entities and their officials and employees.  Because the Law Firm of Tom B.
