Birch Horton Bittner & Cherot offers one of the largest municipal law practice groups in the state of Alaska and has successfully represented local Alaska governments in all regions of the state since 1971. We focus solely on helping our municipal clients successfully maneuver through legal complexities and governmental mandates within the limitations of the Alaska Constitution and Title 29 of the Alaska Statutes.
Because we have a history of extensive involvement in all aspects of municipal law, our attorneys have pioneered methods to deliver advisory and litigation services in a comprehensive and cost-effective manner. We are sensitive to the need of limited municipal budgets and incorporate that understanding into our rates and fee structures. We are confident that our approach ensures the highest quality and most timely representation in Alaska.
